It’s fun and simple to use and you don’t need to know a single thing about producing music to make your own individual songs in minutes!

Here is a funny mix I did that’s released on “Pirate Party Submissions” on subVariant. Liz Revision: “OK What the FUCK, Liz?” [Pirate Party] was an invitation for local artists to hand in the work they wanted to share, for free, on the subVariant site, and be promoted and featured in the local press, music blogs, social networks and the like. Sort of like The Pirate Bay, but totally legal since everyone who handed in music has the right to distibute the works (yes, there is a mighty huge .torrent link at the bottom too…please seed!) (And please note the Creative Commons distribution below it…we may all distribute at will but if you want to commercially use or modify any of these works you gotta contact the artist … Read More

Hangovers are the annoying, productivity-inhibiting result of a night spent drinking quite a bit, and yet we still put up with them because it’s fun to loosen up, be social, and dance.

That’s the concept behind Exception AM, a free digital compilation from subVariant that aims to present a collection of electronic music to help you feel better in the morning after a night of drinking. To celebrate the release on June 20, the release party will be held at Ai lounge in River North as the first in a series of concept parties called “Artificial Intelligence.” Liz Revision will mix the mostly-ambient and … Read More
