Leverage, a new project proposed for Futuresonic 2006, centres around the creation of a copyleft licensed 12 inch vinyl record containing a range of samples, beats and extracts from the archive in a format referencing scratch tools, breaks compilations and battle records.

Battle records are explicitly designed as tools for DJs. Often the breaks, beats and samples collected on these records are created from tracks that are not officially licensed [1]. In contrast, Leverage will feature rare recordings and new remix tracks, short vocal snippets, percussive noises, sounds, samples, breaks and beats – all in the public domain or copyleft licensed and available via the Open Music Archive website.

It is intended that the vinyl tool will enable future production that exists outside of the usual commercial and bootleg economies. We aim to insert Leverage into this existing network of production to prise open new possibilities.
