Moby's release of an "Innocents" BitTorrent Bundle, featuring selected audio, stems for remixing and related content, was a hugely successful project for BitTorrent and resulted in lots and lots of remixes being posted on SoundCloud. But Moby has also been releasing complete project files for collaborative remix efforts on Blend.io. There the tracks are being released one at a time and collaboration is encouraged. Though you can speak of this as a marketing effort for all involved, Moby's clearly into the opportunity to open up a musical conversation.

But Moby also began offering his music for remixing on Blend.io one track at a time.
Blend.io founder Alex Kolundzija noted:
"On Blend producers and musicians can quickly get the complete project files (not just stems) for the songs, and the community – including Moby – can see who is involved, preview the published remixes, and even be able to Pull those to evolve them further."
"All projects on Blend are currently published with the Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons license. We love to hear music created in the open space, but will add support for private collaborations very soon."
