CYAN is a free and independent audio netlabel which provides free music since the foundation in 2009. It is a place where we share our vision with other artists who also release their works free under a creative commons license. Besides, it is the homebase for our own musical projects aka Jaja, Smooth, New Age Hippies, Smooth Genestar and Tenonaki. And it also is a platform for all the special music and suprises we find in the universe of sounds.

In the bygone years, we found so many musical treasures and friends. At CYAN, we always try to make it perfect for the artists and for our personal taste. Thats the reason why we do all the things, like mastering, compiling, cover artwork and the website, on our own. CYAN is open-minded to all styles and genres in the wide field of electronic music, so we are always searching for unique sounds which fit into our vision of high-quality and unconventional music with heart and soul.

The label name CYAN is based on our favourite colour. Besides blue and green, it is the colour of the water, the sky and the nature. It is the colour of the ocean that we love and visit often. Maybe, it is about the freedom you feel while sitting and watching the wideness of the ocean. This freedom is what we want to realize with the netlabel, without any limitations. So it is a good point to release the music on CYAN under the terms of creative commons.

We are always looking for unique, fresh and unconventional sounds and musical suprises. And we do appreciate your honest feedback, too. If you wish to connect to CYAN, feel free and use the contact form or the upload form to send us your demo.
