In the website's FAQ you will realize that the audio on the website is free to use on your own video soundtrack. Kevin simply asks you to place a credit within the video.

Dan-O is a composer that offers his first music for free download at DanoSongs.com. You can use his tunes for free on your endeavor provided you connect to his website or credit him on your video.
