Artist Of The Day: Project 46

In the spirit of our Free Music February here at Muzik Dizcovery, we present to you Project 46 as our Artist Of The Day. Plus, what better way to ring in my personal first (albeit late) FMF post with an artist whose entire catalog of almost 50 original songs, remixes, and mashups is available for free? No, seriously, everything Project 46 has released is free off of their website and/or Facebook page. The duo, aside from their excellent prog-house anthems which all typically have stellar vocal tracks (see "Dreaming," featuring Andrew Allen's excellent voice), is famous for their weekly "Pancake Fridays." Every Friday, the duo receives a random number from a random number generator (typically under 500) and if they receive at least that many likes on their "Pancake Friday" announcement post they release a free song (usually a mashup, but sometimes original work or a remix/bootleg). This "Pancake Friday" tradition, along with their skill in crafting progressive house, has catapulted them to stardom in the house world - they received the #100 spot in this past year's DJ Mag Top 100 DJs, they've released on major labels like Spinnin' Records and Armada, and they're currently touring all over the world to massive crowds everywhere. Project 46 will be a name to watch in the future, and what they've accomplished so far is only the beginning.
