about

This is the incredible soundtrack to the new book!

"In Free the Music Business, Adam Cruz, an 'indie music nerd,' offers readers informative, insightful tips and interesting tales on the world of contemporary music. I completely enjoyed it!"
— Valerie Wilson Wesley, author

In Free the Music Business: Tips and Tales from an Indie Music Nerd (audiobook), author Adam Cruz takes you on a fast-paced journey through the complicated world of streaming music. In his distinctive narrative style, he details the effects that manual interplay has had on royalties and chronicles the diminishing value of music, the rise of streaming services and the changing attitudes of music lovers. Cruz also shares tips and tales from his days of running a widely popular NYC disco label at the turn of the millennium. Free the Music Business . . . is the culmination of his experience working and recording with some of house music's biggest talents as well as research collected for the Freedom Radio Hour, a music business radio show he produces and co-hosts with longtime collaborator, Eddie Nicholas.

For the soundtrack, Cruz selected 11 choice tunes to accompany the 11 chapters. Enjoy songs that shaped the sounds of Mixtape Sessions, his own label. These jams are also immensely inspiring for the book. Songs like "Let the Sunshine Out," "Soul Size Love and "Ghumbah" make this soundtrack a must own!
