About CYAN
CYAN is a free and independent audio label based in Cologne (Germany), providing free legal music under a creative commons license since the foundation in 2009 by Marco Köller and Jana Rockstroh. We think and believe that free music and quality dont have to be a contradiction.

We experienced the electronic music scene since the late 80s through EBM, Techno, House, Drum&Bass and Trance, and we believe in the idea of creative commons: Sharing and distributing music the free and legal way, accessable for all people who are interested in the music we or our featured artists release. We love good Techno, deep Lounge and spacy Ambient, but in general, we are open to all the styles in the wide fields of electronic music.

In the last 7 years, we discovered and released very special music and artists, but we believe that there are much more unique and exciting artists and tracks out there. CYAN represents music with heart and soul, so we are always interested in expanding our artist pool. If you think we exactly mean you, dont hesitate to contact us or to upload your music in the contact section of this website.
