Trust the insight!

Over a month ago I posted a link to a music video, which I labelled as a chart topper...

Time is of the essence!

Due to a hectic schedule i've have decided to merge two of my blogs. As they are both music related this seem like a logical thing to do so expect me post, more info and more free music. Enjoy!

Jamendo is the world's #1 platform for free and legal music downloads. So don't expect to find any of your Top 40 songs here. Available in seven languages, it offers the largest catalog of music under Creative Commons licenses. For artists, it's an easy and efficient way to publish, share and promote their music, and also to make money, through ad revenue sharing and commercial partnerships. If your into new music or unsigned bands then you should have a field day here. Or if you just don't like paying for music you can get some pretty good tracks legally free.



A Pandora style website where music is streamed randomly based on what the listeners like. It's interface is nothing short of painful, in comparison though. It took a few minutes to work it out but basically you have to sign up to use it properly. It's great for finding new music but not if your looking for something specific.
thesixtyone is a nurturing and growing ecosystem where talented folks can sell songs and merchandise directly to their fans. Unlike a record or distribution deal where they only make $1-2 per album (if they ever get paid, that is), artists on thesixtyone make at least $7 per album and are paid every 30 days -- no wait for recoupment and no complex royalty schemes!
There named after Highway 61, a U.S. route that runs along the Mississippi River and marks the origin of American music culture. Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan and B.B. King rode the 61. Elvis grew up in the housing projects along it. Highway 61 was the road by which people left their homes to take their music to the world.


Tiesto Works His Magic For 'DJ Hero 2' Launch

The original "DJ Hero" brought two of the biggest hip-hop artists, Jay-Z and Eminem, together for a special edition of the game. In the sequel, which hit stores on Tuesday (October 19), Activision and Freestyle Games have tapped one of the most popular electronic music producers, Tiësto, to provide new tracks for gamers to master.
"DJ Hero 2" has a broader track list, with a bigger focus on dance music, so Tiësto's involvement was an obvious move for Activision. The publisher asked Tiësto, who provided one track for the original game, to create much more for the sequel. To that end, he recorded an exclusive track, titled "Speed Rail," which he describes as "very fast, uplifting, and it's very easy to put vocals on top."
Tiësto also has two remixes in "DJ Hero 2," including one where he uses Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Why Gaga? Apparently it's his way of introducing people to his own music. "A lot of kids who buy the game are going to want to remix Lady Gaga," said Tiësto. "Then I put very cool bass lines and dance beats underneath, so they get more of the sound. That's one of the reasons I got involved in 'DJ Hero,' because for me, it's amazing to expose my music to a whole new different crowd who've never even heard of Tiësto, hip-hop people, rock people."
Tiësto's style of music, electronic dance, is just starting to explode here in the U.S., which he attributed to social media. "I think the interest for dance music has always been there," he explained, "but it didn't get exposed to the audience. Thanks to MySpace and Facebook, more people got exposed to it, and finally the big breakthrough is there. You can see it everywhere now, New York, L.A., everywhere there's dance clubs opening up."
In addition to Tiësto, other big stars featured in "DJ Hero 2" include DJ Shadow, RZA, Diplo and A-Trak. The game contains 83 tracks in total, with more coming later by way of downloadable content through Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
Gameplay-wise, the features from the original "DJ Hero" return, but the sequel also introduces new multiplayer modes. One such mode is called DJ Battle, which allows two players to play through a song, call-and-response style, battling for the best score overall. There's also an improved single-player mode and vocal support if you'd prefer to go the MC route.

"DJ Hero 2" is in stores now for PS3 and Xbox 360.


This is one of my favourite mp3 search engines at the moment. It has a great layout and easy to use interface. Simply search for your file and browse the results for your required mp3. The option to play the file from the site before downloading is a major bonus with this site as well as the playlist option for registered users. You can also sign in with your Facebook account allowing you to share your music easier.
Extra features such as related artist and album art at the side of the search give it that more professional feel. An overall great mp3 search engine, apart from the annoying 'Join us on Facebook' pop-up.
