“The idea behind the project is to take this current music and rework it into something entirely different while at the same time siting the source material directly, helping to create extended community within the underground music scene. To further share the inspiration for the project, it is available for free download, but also as youtube videos embedded to http://www.coolallover.com so that if interested, listeners can directly access the source material via the “related video” function on youtube. Also, embedded in the site will be direct links to each of the artist’s record labels so that listeners can order the albums that were sampled immediately if they so chose.
Permission to sample the material was given by all the artists.”
