60×60 buzz compilation (aka free music, come leech)

60x60 buzz compilation

A project that has been sucking up quite some time lately, but was well worth the investment is something I thought of doing after running into the Subvert Central 60×60 compilation.
I thought it would be great to have an similar compilation with tracks from people using Jeskola Buzz as their music software. I thought this would be great because I use Buzz myself, and it would be a way of forcing myself to actually write and release something again. Another reason is that I know there are a lot of people writing great stuff using this underrated piece of free software, and this would be an excellent way of getting some of that stuff out there.

After launching the idea on several mailing lists, spamming some folks over email, bending a few arms, and getting other volunteers on board to make some cover art and do the mastering, the final result is now online on archive.org.¬† It turned out into something I’m quite proud of. The quality of the tunes submitted by the contributing artists are in general outstanding, ranging from poppy tunes, to chill ambient, crazy breakcore, techno and some industrial rock. I’ve listened to the compilation for a few weeks now and I have to say it still doesn’t bore me. I cant help but cranking the volume up to insane levels with some of those tunes. They are simply t3h awesome!!!!11.

One of the best things about this for me personally is getting to know a lot of people from the Buzz scene by doing this. I found the Buzzchurch forum to be a real driving force for this project, as it’s full of positive energy and open minded people. Props to you all, this wouldn’t have been possible without you guys.

So if you feel like downloading a quality compilation of 60 tracks, each 60 seconds in length by a ton of artists using Jeskola Buzz in one way or another… then get your butt over to archive.org and start downloading that free hour of sweet sounds!

And a bonus mix!
Sweet!

    Great to see this thing finally come together. Even my non-IDM-minded friends are enjoying it because of all the variety. You should be quite proud.

    Yeah, the bonus mix on it’s own is worth checking out as well. It’s not a bunch of left overs that didn’t make it into the original compilation. It’s a nice piece on it’s own.

    Glad to hear you like it Serg.

    Thanks for your efforts n3wjack. I downloaded an ogg version of both main and bonus compilation yesterday. And I must say that it’s quite unique. It’s interesting to listen to all those different genres in one stream of audio. And also interesting to see what musical tastes have other buzzers. Bonus comp is even better in my opinion.

    Nice blog you have here. Cheers!
