Our Collaboration With Facebook Went To Interesting Territories

Everyone has a story, and Facebook's Internet.org project is helping people share their experiences around the world.

It was an honor to collaborate with our friends at Facebook on this celebratory film marking the one year anniversary of internet.org. In this beautiful testament to the resourceful power of the Internet to countries that haven't had access before, this is not only a story of getting online, but also a story of connection.

The percussive-heavy soundtrack added to the imaginative, yet focused nature of the piece. "Big Metal" by Marmoset Band, HITS was the perfect pairing to this exploratory and adventurous film. Enjoy.

Feel free to share this film and spread the love on your Twitter with #marmovision. Let us know and we'll send you some cool swag.

Featured Artist // The Retro Vibes of Ancient Heat

This nine-piece Portland ensemble doesn't emulate the "sound" of disco, they live and breathe it. Thanks to Ancient Heat, the hypnotic vibes of the 70s are alive and well; complete with pulsating synthesizer, sexy vocals and of course...the occasional sax solo.

Here are three funky tracks that can help create an authentic, vintage aesthetic to any scene you're working on.

"Oh...You Bad" bounces along with thumping bass lines, a strong horn/brass section and pumped up electric guitar. This fun and mischievous composition explodes with color and glitter, evoking vivid images of the best party that you've ever been to.

The steady beats of the soulful "Josephine" keep things interesting with oohs & ahhs and lively percussion. Check out 2:37 where the song takes a more spacious approach and locks into a mesmerizing groove, ascending into a blissed-out state.

"Slap & Gallop" would be the perfect soundtrack to a spy show filled with car chases. Keeping a cool demeanor, this piece goes into more adventurous territory with cinematic horns and reverby vocals. Rising and falling with multiple crescendos, this song dips into subtle grooves with bass dreams and ascends into full blown, electrified anthems.
