Homerecorded electronic protest popsongs. With a few early exceptions, all created with linux and open source.



On the move, in motion, out and about: that's “in giro”, and that we are. we pick up things in our travels, pluck them from limbs, absorb or excavate or simply remember them, and during layovers we stitch these together and sing. being in giro is being with change, and ever-seeking we make music that ever-seeks. As points on our trajectory towards freedom, the defiantly homemade music is free/gratis, the tools are free/libre, and we work with free/independent artists.

I'm an electronic music producer, vocalist and songwriter from Warsaw, Poland. My main OS is KXStudio.

I'm creating music inspired with modern EDM sounds as well as the classical baroque music. I'm blending the genres of drum&bass, dubstep, techno, electro with funk and jazz inspirations, trying to create music that is both danceable and rich enoght to be enjoyable on it's own. I don't use other people's samples or loops - I mostly synthesise my sounds from scratch (drums too!) or record some vocal samples myself.

Džoni Promis

Multimedia artist, crafting art/music since 1992. Full time FLOSS user since 2010.

Through his work one can see that he is not genre oriented. He freely uses everything he needs to create what he wants at that particular moment. Because of this we can came across different genres and styles. We can consider him experimental, rocky, electro, but hey, he can make a pop song too if he needs it.


Südwestlicht make Alternative Pop with female vocals, sung in German.
