Why all the Nickelback hate? Moby would have been a better target! ๐Ÿ˜

I can also recommend Fugue as a cool set of playlist for a creative process: I choose a list of tracks of one genre or one composer - and that's it. This week my work is being accompanied by Les Temps Modernes and Vadim Derepa thanks to you https://icons8.com/music/genre/classical :)

@myalanska Vadim Derepa is my favorite too: https://icons8.com/music/author/vadim-derepa

@kirill_kazachek @valeriya_khristinina @timur_khaziev @konstantin_vlasov @visualpharm @pavel_malay how do you keep it free without compromising on quality? Most free commercial music is not great.
Ivan
Maker
@abadesi we scouted for the composers and convinced them our business model https://icons8.com/our-business-model/ works best. Here's the pitch in short: People get either free content for a link (we all know how it is, to be poor and not being able to afford any paid digital content). Teams and companies (10% of our users) usually pay. This way, composers get either advertising or money. We work this way, and that's more than enough to sustain.

@abadesi also we created a small number of tracks in-house. That's something we used to do with icons, photos, and (spoiler) soon illustrations. We tried it with music as well, but apparently music is different; it takes much longer to compose. Therefore, we had to rely on our partnerships with composers.

Impressive composer for me https://icons8.com/music/author/tyufyakin-konstantin Today I work with him. Please add [repeat one] to the player.

@horevivan this is something unexpected, when people start using it as a Brain.fm alternative. Different categories are for different projects, my favorites are: https://icons8.com/music/genre/epic - for an energy boost https://icons8.com/music/genre/classical - for everything else

Sweet!
Anton Vasylenko
Can you please do volume control as if you are listening several things in parallel this might be useful.
Ivan

Really love the category search function and is way better than most sites that I have found out there for free music. The site looks sleek, professional, and love the photography choice! I really love the audio player on the site. Love how it appears on the bottom. Good feeling for the site. Will certainly use it!

@cameronrohani thatโ€™s how I read it! Lol

Wow! Just the other day, a product called No Licks was launched to tackle this same problem, but from a different angle, and without the classical focus. Very cool!
Nastya Grebneva
@nickjnish We hope that Fugue will be helpful for creators. And we plan to work on adding more music to the collection.

Vlad Korobov
Would be great to have an option to buy music to be able to use it in video ads and etc.
Ivan
Maker
@vladkorobov at the moment, all you should do is to buy our monthly $20 subscription. No link is required then.

Great resource - do you know @visualpharm if these will have any issues in terms of copyright ID if videos are uploaded to Facebook and also YouTube especially as both have their own music libraries now too - thanks
Ivan
Maker
@krishnade do that. We've negotiated the rights for all of these. The only exception are few tracks that are marked with Content ID.
Krishna De
@visualpharm Thanks for confirming - just want to know as I will be sharing you in my workshop next week on live video for PR professionals
Ivan
Maker
@krishnade thanks! if you'd like the paid educator's license for our icons and everything, you're more then welcome to drop me a line at ivan@icons8.com
Krishna De
@visualpharm Thank you - that would be fantastic
Ivan
Maker
@krishnade done.
Krishna De
@visualpharm Thank you and for the email response to my questions!
Justin Kwong
Music looks great guys, thanks for making this! Is there a way to download smaller file sizes of music? I noticed that a lot of the downloads are 50MB+, are there any mp3s or .wavs that are under 10MB?
Ivan
Maker
@justinckwong good point, will do. There are mp3s, we use them to stream music when you press the play button; it's won't be hard. Meantime, there's a hack: open the developers tools in your browser and start playing a track. You'll get your mp3 link here: http://take.ms/FzWWw
