Crystal Mine is an online music sharing platform that was created in 2018 to promote the exchange of music under the philosophy of #anticopyright. This independent label is intended to release music on cassette, mainly; reinforcing those fresh and risky projects based on experimentation. Since 2019, Crystal Mine Radio for Relative Radio is a bi-monthly radio program in which the latest trends and interests of both are explored through different formats. Crystal Mine affects the license of the #anticopyright to share music on the web and can be downloaded freely. From there, we can talk about the implications that late capitalism has in all this.
