Let's share music together!
Post whatever you like (all file formats are welcome, from lossy to lossless to DSD) as long as they are links to download pages authorized by the copyright owners for free digital distribution.
(I am aware there exists a free FLAC thread; for what it's worth, I conceptualized this one prior to that realization.)
No streaming links are allowed unless a download is provided.
Please do not embed videos in your posts either — let's focus on the downloads!
FYI: Some links may require you to enter your email address in order to receive the download. For Bandcamp pages with the Name Your Price option, just click Buy Now and enter 0 for the price.
So as not to overwhelm you, I will hold myself back for now.
As my first contribution, I proudly present to you the mighty Mega Ran!
Formerly known as Random, Mega Ran makes "chip hop" — rap with video game music samples. Capcom granted him an exclusive license to use Mega Man tunes in his songs...but more interestingly, he released three albums based on Final Fantasy VII.
(This release mixes vocals from the Black Materia albums with popular songs you probably know!)
Here are selections from the rest of Mega Ran's extensive discography in chronological order.
(tracks 10-13 feature Mega Ran)
Writer's Guild: The Droogies (Gotta Go)
River City Random
Mega Ran & Richie Branson: The Ghouls 'N Ghosts EP
Mega Ran & Mister Wilson: Blur Bomber
1-UP: Nerdcore Emulation Station (NES) 2
Doug Funnie: Where Is Doug Funnie?
Mega Lo Mania
And here are a few more artists, for good measure.
Nine Inch Nails: Ghosts I-IV (first 9 tracks)
Steve Roach is my favorite ambient artist. He has albums going all the way back to the 1970s. You can download samples from most of them by clicking on each album on his discography page.
OverClocked ReMix is an organization that remixes video game music. They have produced an enormous amount of material. You can download their albums here, individual songs here, and more remixes here.
I recommend starting with Final Fantasy VII: Voices Of The Lifestream.
And to top it all off, here is an article with lots of links to free high-res music downloads.
