Under the umbrella of the Cyber-House Collective, Activ8te has teamed up with a group of security researchers and indie artists like AENDZI to release “Teardrop Falling,” a song about Distributed Denial of Service and censorship. Its deep house vibes and inspiring vocals talk about how the Internet is being censored in many countries, but more importantly, how DDoS attacks are also becoming a popular way to censor the Internet. Teardrop is a reference to an iconic denial of service attack and the track itself is inspired by recent events in the Ukraine. It also connects to many years of censorship by repressive governments, such as Russia and China. “Teardrop Falling” is the first of a series of tracks about cybersecurity with the hope that it will help to stimulate interest in learning more about these topics. With a release date of May 29th, the artists are hoping to produce several more security themed tracks before the famous hacker conference DefCon in August.
“My dream is to bring a new generation into the field of security and have our music inspire a more secure Internet for everyone,” says Activ8te.
