Dig the Soundtrack 2017 Remix Event

Did you know that instrumentals are the most popular and widely used tracks on ccMixter?

Last year, we had our first Dig the Soundtrack Event. Like the Tubed BY You Event in 2011, it focused on expanding ccMixter’s instrumental music for film and video. Both projects successfully generated ccMixter music that has been used all over the web. ccMixter music now is found in over one million web videos. For reals.

To keep up with the constant demand for new CC licensed instrumental music, will you help us make Dig the Soundtrack an awesome annual event? Let’s give video-makers new music to dig for on our dedicated search engine→ http://dig.ccmixter.org/

What is the aim of the Dig the Soundtrack remix events?
1. Give filmmakers and content creators the CC licensed instrumentals they need.
2. Get ccMixter music placed in videos.
3. Expand our ccPlus artist roster to help you earn money from your music AND help fund ccMixter.
4. Educate creators on how to attribute and properly use ccMixter music.

We encourage everyone to submit their original samples, pells, and remixes, with an emphasis on instrumentals. We have found that melodic instrumentals of all genres are used by video-makers more often than tracks with vocals. BONUS POINTS go to folks who share cinematic scores.

Hey vocalists!
We need your skills, too! During the Dig the Soundtrack event, we’ll be joining the Battle for Net Neutrality Internet-wide day of action on July 12th (psssst… you can join the fight, too!). We’ll be curating a themed playlist to share on July 12th and would LOVE to include new spoken word pieces about the importance of net neutrality. Please submit your spoken word to the Dig the Soundtrack event. BONUS POINTS for using a Dig the Soundtrack backing track or submitting samples from your own instrumental background music.

Two more things!
If you would like to make your ccMixter music available for people to license AND to receive a portion of advertising revenue when your music is used in a monetized video, email us to sign up for ccPlus!

Can you give ccMixter $1 per month? ccMixter launched it’s Patreon page earlier this year and it’s starting to gain some steam! It would be awesome if you could help it take off, throw a buck in the ol’ tip jar, and share ccMixter’s Patreon page with your music loving friends. Not sure about this crowdfunding stuff? Check out our blog about why ccMixter is now on Patreon.



Uploads for Dig the Soundtrack 2017 will be accepted starting June 16th.

The first I’ve heard of this… my email notifications from ccMixter are definitely broken, and I have no idea why.
