The Origins of "DJ Bolivia"

I get asked quite often why I'm referred to as "DJ Bolivia" when I'm from Canada, not from Bolivia.   In the past, I've usually answered by saying that it's a long story, but the short version is that I thought that Bolivia would be a cool country to visit, even though I've never been there.  I'm going to take a few minutes this evening to explain the full story, for those who are curious.

It all began in approximately 2001, I think.  It's hard to figure out all the details, because a lot of online sites that I'd be able to use to reference dates simply didn't exist at the time.  After all, that's fifteen years ago.  Back then, none of the following existed:  YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, Instagram, and thousands of other sites.  In 2001, the internet was still a pretty wild place, without a lot of robust infrastructure.  The only major sites I can remember back then were MySpace, AOL, eBay, and PayPal.  The thought of buying something on the internet was revolutionary (and dangerous).  The apps that I can remember from back then were things like Napster, ICQ, and mIRC.

One night, I was in my studio, having drinks with two of my good friends:  Drew Dudley, and Marc Carnes.  We were listening to music, probably trying to sort out things that needed to be done for Conduct Becoming, and having some Jack Daniels & Corona on the side.

During this particular evening, we got to discussing some potential upcoming shows for Marc.  Marc was a well-known DJ in the Maritimes at that point, and had played at a number of parties in places like Halifax, Moncton, Saint John, etc.  We were discussing how to get Marc booked at more shows, because trying to get booked as a DJ at that time was very competitive.  As I remember it, Marc wasn't sure that he had a great future in DJ'ing, because trying to self-promote or stand out from the crowd was so challenging.  He was a great DJ, but the promotional aspects were the problem.  My suggestion was to build an online presence.

The next three hours turned into a free-wheeling discussion about how that could be done, about the pros and cons of setting up a website, the technical challenges involved, and how to promote.  I think the positions we took were that I was saying it would be easy, Drew was looking at me with a raised eyebrow wondering how I would go about everything, and Marc was playing the Devil's Advocate.

At some point in the argument, the other two weren't convinced that my idea would be feasible or realistic.  I think at this point, I said something along the lines of, "I bet that if you gave me five years, I could turn ANYONE with some basic talents into a famous international DJ and recognized name brand."  This, of course, caught their attention.  Drew agreed to take on my bet, and we decided that it would be mostly a gentleman's wager, but that we'd put a bottle of Jack Daniels on the line.

Marc wasn't convinced that he wanted to be a guinea pig for this project, so I said that I would be the subject of my own bet.  I had already been DJ'ing for a number of years, but mostly at small parties around the university campus, or at the local campus Pub.  I was able to beat-mix vinyl records, although my skills were at a hobby level, not a pro by any means.  I had the basic skills, I had the equipment and records, and I knew how to hand-code websites in HTML.  My tree planting website, Replant.ca, had already been online for a couple years at that point, so I was pretty confident that what I didn't know, I could figure out.  I was the manager of the local campus nightclub at this point, and I also did all the updates and coding maintenance on that website.

My first challenge, however, was what to call myself.  I didn't want to use my own name.  I'm not sure why ... I guess it was because I didn't want my name associated with it, in case it turned out to be a ridiculous disaster.  In retrospect, this was a terrible decision.  I should have used my own name.  Inicidentally, I've considered changing my stage name to my real name at several points in the last few years, but it's difficult, since my web presence and online real estate is already so well established.

Anyway, I needed a stage name.  And this is where the beer and bourbon helped fuel a continuation of the evening's discussion.  When I had tried to name my dog (Dakota) several years before, I had gone through the same sort of challenge.  With Dakota, I had gone through several sets of lists, coming up with different ideas.  For instance, I went through a number of international cities.  Baghad was a strong choice for a while (thinking back to the Gulf War) but then I decided that it sounded too similar to "Bad Dog" and the dog might develop an inferiority complex.  So with Dakota, I eventually moved from city names to American States, and when I got to North Dakota, I realized that Dakota was a great name.  Even better, I had never heard of another dog named Dakota before, so it was perfect.  Incidentally, about ten years later, I read a published list of the most popular dog names in North America, and Dakota was the top name.  I had no idea that my dog wasn't the only Dakota in the world.

So in this context, Marc and Drew and I were still trying to figure out a DJ stage name for me.  Using the same concept that I had taken to figure out the dog's name, we eventually started going through countries in South America.  When we got to Bolivia, we thought, "Hey, this might work."

Before we had started considering names, we had come up with a short list of qualifications.  This was the list:
1.  It had to be a name/word that was fairly well known to English speakers.
2.  It should also be a name/word that would be recognizable to Spanish speakers if possible (since I spoke Spanish) or at least to some other major language in common global use.  This was a simple requirement designed to increase global marketability.
3.  The stage name had to be a single word, not a pair or words or phrase.  The logic behind this rule was that a lot of famous musicians went by a single name:  Slash, Madonna, Bono, etc.
4.  The name had to roll off the tongue, and sound easy to produce.  It had to sound relatively cool.
5.  A good domain name had to be available.
6.  Most importantly, it had to be a stage name that did not appear to be in use yet, through extensive internet searches (yes, at least Google and Yahoo existed at the time).  I didn't want to be confused with an existing performer, nor to have an existing performer serve me a cease-and-desist order to stop using the name.  I had to make sure that I could put enough information on the internet to establish a "first use" precedent, to protect the name.

We ran "Bolivia" through the list of rules, and it seemed to fit perfectly.  I ran into some minor problems when I tried to check for domain availability for something like "bolivia.com" because it isn't possible to register any country's name as a domain name - the builders of the internet were smart like that, about domain-squatting.  But I thought about it for a minute and decided that "djbolivia.com" was adequate, because at least it clarified the purpose of the site.

Most importantly, there wasn't anybody using "DJ Bolivia" that I could find, at least not at the time.  Incidentally, a year or so later, I discovered a "DJ Bolivia" from California who had an account on MySpace before I did, but my main website was set up and running before his MySpace account, so I didn't worry about that.  And no, I don't have a MySpace account anymore.

As we tried to think of any other reason why Bolivia wouldn't be a good stage name, I realized that Bolivia was a country that I really wanted to visit, and that I probably wouldn't find a better choice.  That decided it.  I said, "It's official.  I have five years, and I'm going to win this bet."

So basically, that's the entire story of where "DJ Bolivia" came from.  I started working on a website almost immediately.  I also started practicing more diligently, so I would be ready to play at more venues outside my own hometown.  And I tried to figure out ways to distinguish myself from other DJ's.

The online presence really made a difference.  All of this happened at a perfect time.  I decided that I would record some demo mixes and try to share them online.  There were literally NO websites or services that allowed a person to do this, at the time.  I did some research about the legality of it all, and discovered that under Canadian law, it seemed to be legal to share mixes if three conditions were met:
1.  The mix had to be free, non-commercial, and not creating any monetary gain for myself.
2.  There could be no full and complete isolated commercial songs in the download (by mixing at least 60 seconds at the beginning or end of each song with another song, I was able to meet that rule).
3.  The distribution could not have a negative impact upon the distribution or sale of the original work.  This is a complicated one, but essentially, nobody was going to refrain from buying a vinyl copy of any of the tracks on my demo mixes simply because they had a digital copy of my mix available.  Remember, at the time, it was pretty much impossible to even buy digital copies of music.  Most of the mp3's that were out there were simply rips done by users.  The only service that I think was trying to go into digital music legitimately for online sales was MP3.com - which went bankrupt.

Putting the demo mixes on my site was a game-changer.  At the time, almost nobody had "fast" internet.  I think I had just gotten one of the very first ADSL lines in New Brunswick a couple years before that.  Cable and ADSL was really only being introduced to a wider public in Atlantic Canada in around 2000-2001, and for the early years of my website, the vast majority of Canadians still online had dialup lines, if they had a line at all.  To download one of my earlier mixes, encoded as an MP3 that was only about 56 megabytes in size (128 kbps bit rate) often took people an hour.

But almost nobody in the world had a site where it was legally possible to download a DJ mix.  My own site was not quite a pioneer in that respect, but it was most definitely a very early adopter.  I got fans from around the world, just because almost nobody else was doing it.  And some of those fans (people like Dan Fernandez at MicroSoft, tProphet from 2600/Defcon, and half a dozen others) are still friends today, and have all helped my hobby DJ'ing career in various and sometimes unintended ways.

Well, that's today's story about the origins of "DJ Bolivia" and of my website.  Drew graciously conceded defeat in our gentleman's bet after a couple gigs that I played at the San Jose Game Developer's Conference and at a couple venues in Japan (thanks to friends and to my website), even though that was technically more like six years after I had started the site, not five.


I'll leave you with links to a couple of my most popular sites, which have somehow accumulated millions of visits and views over the past fifteen years (I'm still scratching my head at that, occasionally).  Even this music blog, which got a fraction of the traffic of my main site or my YouTube channel, has had a quarter million views in the past six years.  Thanks for reading, and thanks for whatever support you've shown me in the past!

And finally, here's a graphic to show what the main page of my website first looked like back in 2002.  What's funny is that this is a 70 kilobyte image file, and I was worried back then about how large it was, because it took a while for people to download on dialup!

SHG Radio Show, Episode 343

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to distribution on other terrestrial and internet-based radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks very occasionally feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on tech-house and techno, and a small amount of progressive, trance, & minimal. Due to the mix of styles, you may hear combinations of tracks that wouldn't normally be featured together in a DJ's live set, but this show is intended to feature various styles of electronic/dance music. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 343) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

I should point out that when I make these shows, I mean for them to be a journey. I pay a lot of attention to the programming, and to the development of energy levels. If you're a first-time listener, you might think that the start of the show is quite tame, on the slower and "deeper" side of house or techno. However, give it time. Pay attention to how the styles change throughout the mix, and how the energy builds. Sometimes, I'll be very erratic and jump around between several genres, just for fun. Sometimes, I'll do a particularly dark show, with a heavy emphasis on techno. Most of the time however, you'll find a mix of mostly deep house or minimal or deep techno for the first third of the mix, building into a more upbeat section of tech-house through the middle, perhaps building up to some energetic tracks at the end, which often trespass into the realm of more contemporary house. Don't treat the show as a collection of individual tracks ... think of it as a cohesive experience; an hour-long aural journey of reflection and beats.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

Hijack (Techno Track, and Remix Contest)

Congratulations to Dom3n, from Slovenia, who was the winner of our Hijack remix contest!  Here's his winning entry:





Before we get into some of the notable entries for our "Hijack" remix contest, here's a link to a newer contest that we're currently sponsoring, for our "Skyscraper" track:




Here are a few of the many other notable entries for the Hijack contest. We'll be slowly releasing additional remix entries over the coming months.















Here is the Original Post that we made about this remix contest:

Urban Francis and I just did another track together.  This time, the style is techno.  We've made the mastered final track available as a free download, we've created a music video on YouTube, and we're sponsoring a Remix Contest (details below).

Most importantly, for the producers, we've shared our entire Ableton Live project files!  Producers can download the full project, see how we put the track together, do your own remixes (which we highly encourage), or even use the project as a template for your own future projects.  All that we ask in return is that you spread the word about our track and video!  Here's the original:




The files that you'll need for remixing (either the Ableton project or the audio Stems collection) are now available from my public Dropbox account.  Just look in the "Bolivia's Remix Projects" folder. My Dropbox also includes a lot of other stuff that people might be interested in.  Here's the link:

The RAR and ZIP versions are different compression types, but the same archives.  ZIP files are universally compatible but larger than RAR.  RAR will be a significantly smaller and faster download, but are only native to Windows.  If you're using a Mac, download a free app such as "The Unarchiver" or "UnRarX" to unpack them.

If you're interested in the stems, you'll be able to use them in pretty much any DAW or audio editor.  They're in WAV format, at 48000/24-bit.  If you're going for the Ableton project, you must have Ableton Live Suite version 9.7 in order to be able to open the project.  Only three resources external to Ableton were used, as detailed in the notes included in the folder.  One external plug-in is a free download (Voxengo's Span), one is cheap (Dadalife's Sausage Fattener), and the last (Absynth 5) is more expensive, but can be replaced with a different VSTi of your choice if you don't have it.


Here's the music video that we produced for this track.  Thanks for sharing it around :)




Remix Contest Details:

We're currently hosting a remix contest for this track.  I'm personally sponsoring the contest with a prize of $300 (in Canadian dollars) for the winning track.  That amount can be paid to the winner (in Canadian funds) as long as you have paypal.  If the winner is a Canadian resident, I'm also willing to mail a cheque if you don't use paypal.

In addition, a number of other randomly selected entries will be showcased on my website, in this blog post, on our SoundCloud accounts, and through other internet media, along with the contact info and/or a promo website for the producers of those remixes (if you want to share such info).


1.  You may share your remixes freely on any internet sites, in any file type(s), both before and after the closing date of the contest, as long as you name your remix according to the following convention:  Urban Francis & Bolivia - Hijack (YOUR NAME Remix).

2.  You should not attempt to register your remix with a professional label or publisher (due to potential copyright content clashes, which I'll explain at the end of this post).  So if you share your remix with the world, you'll have to do it through your own personal publishing efforts.

3.  Your remix can be any genre at all, of your choosing.  Obviously, it will be easier to produce your remix in a style similar to the existing original, ie. some sort of techno derivative.  But feel free to be creative.

4.  You may submit up to two separate entries.

5.  There is no restriction on the length of your submission(s), although we expect that the majority of submissions will probably be between 4 and 8 minutes in length.  Having a submission that is shorter or longer than that range will not handicap you when it comes to judging.

6.  The deadline for entries is 11:59pm (Atlantic Standard Time Zone) on Sunday night, February 26th, 2017.  All judging will take place and winners will be announced within this post by March 15th, 2017.

7.  This contest is open worldwide where permitted, to entrants who have reached the age of majority in their country of residence.  Persons under the age of majority who create a remix may submit their entry through a parent or legal guardian as proxy.

8.  Notwithstanding the above, this contest is void in jurisdictions where prohibited by law.

9.  The prize for the contest winner will be $300 in Canadian dollars.  The Canadian dollar is currently weak, and is worth less than the US dollar.  This amount can be paid to the winner as long as you have Paypal or Interac Email Transfer capabilities.  If the winner is a Canadian resident, I'm also willing to mail a cheque if you don't use Paypal or Interac Email Banking.  I will not send a cheque or use any other type of money transfer service to non-Canadian residents.  The recipient of the winning prize is solely responsible for reporting and submitting any relevant income taxes that might apply to your prize money in your country of residence.  Canadian residents will not enjoy any preference in judging.  We want this to be a global contest.  Having said this, we do expect a number of Canadian entrants, so it's possible that the winner could be a Canadian.  Just rest assured that we definitely won't discriminate against non-Canadians!  The majority of the winners of our past remix contests have been non-Canadians.

10.  Judging will be done by a panel of judges including Urban Francis and other associate producer friends.  The judges' decision will be based upon the quality of music, production values used in making the remix, and possibly also on how innovative the remix is.  The judges' decision will be final, and the judges will not provide feedback on why they chose the specific winning track above any other specific track.

11.  You may share your remix publicly before the contest is over.  However, the popularity of any shared remixes will not influence the judges' decision.  The winner will be decided based upon the judges' perception of the quality of the submissions, not based upon a popularity contest.

12.  Your remix is permitted to include any additional vocal/sample material that you generate, although don't take this as a suggestion that we'd prefer that.  In other words, you may produce an instrumental version if you want, or you can add new vocal/sample material of your own.  You may also include new sounds/instrumentation of your own.  However, please do not include ANY samples or vocals that have been copyrighted elsewhere by another artist.  Any entries containing someone else's copyrighted content will be disqualified.  Any new samples, loops, or other audio materials incorporated into your remix must be royalty-free or exclusively designed by the remixer.

13.  Musicians or producers who are under an exclusive contract with a record label are ineligible.

14.  No purchase is necessary to enter or win this contest.  In fact, there is nothing that you can buy.  However, by entering this promotion contest, you agree that any costs that you incur in creating your remix are solely your own responsibility.

15.  Any potential copyright or other intellectual property rights that may potentially vest in your remix will be granted to Bolivia (Jonathan Clark) and Urban Francis (Francis Cormier).  Note that this is simply to avoid legal complications, and we do not intend to attempt to sell copies of your remixes.

16.  It is expressly agreed that no payment is due to the participants for the production of your remixes.  Only one winner will receive a monetary prize.

17.  By providing your entry details to us, you confirm that you would like to enter the promotion contest and that you agree to be bound by these rules, terms, and conditions, ethics rules applicable on the internet, applicable laws and regulations, and all legislation applicable in your jurisdiction of residence.

18.  Your remix must not contain any illegal, obscene, racist, defamatory, or sexual material, or any material likely to offend any person or any material likely to infringe upon any person's rights of privacy.  The judges reserve the right to disqualify any entries based upon these or any other criteria.  Entrants represent and warrant that their comments or public publishing do not contain any harmful, offensive, or inappropriate content, or any other communications which might defame, disparage or reflect adversely upon the promoters or our goods/services.

19.  We reserve the right to disqualify any submissions that we believe to be the work of other producers.

20.  The winning prize is non-transferable.

21.  We accept no responsibility for entries lost, damaged or delayed, or for any inability to submit entries as a result of computer services, systems, software and/or server failure, error, interruption, defect or delay or any other technical malfunction, including problems with internet connectivity and/or filtering or content by any social media platform.  Entries which are late, incomplete, corrupt, garbled, inaccessible/blocked, bulk, automated, ineligible, suspected as fraudulent, do not comply with the rules & terms & conditions, or which in our sole discretion affect the validity or operation of this promotion contest will not be accepted and are void. 

22.  Except to the extent that they may not be excluded by law, no representations, warranties, terms or conditions that are not expressly stated in these rules & terms & conditions apply to this promotion contest.  We share no liability for any injuries, loss, or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with participation in this promotion (including any damage to entrants' or to any other persons' computer relating to or resulting from participation in, or downloading of any materials or software in connection with this promotion contest), or acceptance, use, misuse, or non-use of any prizes.

23.  We reserve the right to edit and/or augment the rules & terms & conditions at any point throughout the duration of this contest, in case we think of something that we forgot to mention.

24.  Your remix must not include any unauthorized samples or audio which have a copyright belonging to any other artist or entity.


Phew.  That was exhausting.


To Enter:

1.  Send a link to your track via email to Urban Francis in an uncompressed audio format, ie. WAV or AIFF format.  The best way to do this is probably to put it into a Dropbox account (you can get one for free if you don't already have one) and share the link to the file with Urban Francis.  If this isn't possible, you can find other services that would allow you to host and share your file.  But to be honest, Dropbox is probably the best and easiest by far.  An alternative would be to get a free Soundcloud account (if you don't already have one) and upload the file there, and enable downloads, then send that link to Urban Francis.

2.  You should not send your project/session files.

3.  You can produce your remix in the DAW or Audio Editor of your choice.  We'd like to know which DAW you used, but that's mostly just out of curiousity.  Also, although we haven't decided this yet, we might pick a couple of especially good entries to feature in our public dropbox (your entire project files) IF you're willing to do that.  But you don't have to, and that won't affect how we judge the entries.  Again, don't send us your full project/session files.  For now, just tell us which editor you used.

4.  We must have the following information:
     - Your full name.
     - Your producer alias, if you have one.
     - What country you're from.
     - Your email address (if unspecified, we'll assume that it's the one that you use to enter).

5.  You can optionally include a photo with your entry.  This is not mandatory, and won't affect your chances of winning.  We'll only use this if you're the winner and if you happen to want a photo published.

6.  In the event that your submission is randomly selected to be shared by us to a wider distribution, it would be helpful for you to tell us (when you enter) whether or not you want to share any promotional details with your remix.  Details must be limited to one email address and/or up to four website links (soundcloud, facebook, etc.).

7.  Urban Francis will reply to all submissions to confirm that they have been received.  If you don't get a submission confirmation email, please send a second email which is TEXT ONLY to specify that you sent a submission.  That way, if your original email (with links and/or attachments) got redirected to spam/trash, we can look for it.

8.  The email address to send entries to is:  
fcormier27@gmail.com

Good luck with your remixing.  And if you can think of any remix or production-oriented message boards where you could share the link to this post, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!


Note:  We have copyrighted and registered the original work with SOCAN, the Canadian music licensing agency.  Although we are not pursuing copyright claims if the content is posted online, you should be careful if you do a remix and give it to a label that tries to enforce copyright claims on your own remix.  Since we've already registered the work, we'd be able to prove that we hold the original copyright.  In other words, make sure you don't get into a situation where you sell your remix to a label who then tries to use content-matching algorithms at services such as YouTube and Soundcloud to monetize remixes of your remix.  If such a content-match occurred with our original track (which is on both of those services, and other services) then you'd have a lot of hassle trying to remove your track from the system.  However, this shouldn't be an issue if you share your own mixes freely on YouTube, Soundcloud, and other platforms.  It would only be if you tried to share through a label that was trying to collect publishing royalties that you'd run into an issue.




Don't forget to follow Francis on his SoundCloud account, because he posts free tracks a lot more frequently than I do!  Here's the link:

www.soundcloud.com/urban_francis

Also, if any labels out there are interested in additional tracks similar in style to this one, let us know.  We have a few unreleased tracks that we might be willing to place with labels, although we would not be willing to sign an exclusive or long-term contract with any one label.  We'll do track-by-track one-off placements only.


We've recorded a series of seven separate YouTube videos that will help explain how we put together various parts of this project.  The videos are aimed at intermediate and advanced Ableton producers.  Here they are:

























For results from an older 2016 remix contest of a progressive house track called "Courage" that Urban Francis and I produced together, which also has the Ableton project available in my public Dropbox, visit this link:




Here's a different version of the mix by Urban Francis.  I think he did a much better job of mastering on it than we did on the original.  Also, the instrumentation has changed somewhat.  Listen or download here:







Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to bookmark this post, and come back shortly for more updates!  We'll be posting a number of the remix contest entries here throughout March.

SHG Radio Show, Episode 340

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to distribution on other terrestrial and internet-based radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks very occasionally feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on tech-house and techno, and a small amount of progressive, trance, & minimal. Due to the mix of styles, you may hear combinations of tracks that wouldn't normally be featured together in a DJ's live set, but this show is intended to feature various styles of electronic/dance music. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 340) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

I should point out that when I make these shows, I mean for them to be a journey. I pay a lot of attention to the programming, and to the development of energy levels. If you're a first-time listener, you might think that the start of the show is quite tame, on the slower and "deeper" side of house or techno. However, give it time. Pay attention to how the styles change throughout the mix, and how the energy builds. Sometimes, I'll be very erratic and jump around between several genres, just for fun. Sometimes, I'll do a particularly dark show, with a heavy emphasis on techno. Most of the time however, you'll find a mix of mostly deep house or minimal or deep techno for the first third of the mix, building into a more upbeat section of tech-house through the middle, perhaps building up to some energetic tracks at the end, which often trespass into the realm of more contemporary house. Don't treat the show as a collection of individual tracks ... think of it as a cohesive experience; an hour-long aural journey of reflection and beats.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

However, all older episodes have been posted individually on SoundCloud, and also in archives of 25 episodes apiece (convenient for bulk downloading) from DJ Bolivia's Public Dropbox folder. That Dropbox link also has folders for individual tracks and remixes, project files and stem collections for producers who want to make their own remixes, videos, and other material. You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.
