Kutiman: kuttin it .:Mar 09 09:.
Peep this link. http://thru-you.com/
Kutiman engineers a bunch of unrelated youtube videos together to compile 7 tracks. They're all fresh, but 7 is probably my favorite. You can easily follow the original samples that were used in these videos.
Such a sick concept, simple, creative, turning a media site into a canvas. I'm sure we'll start seeing more of these.
Kutiman is a one-man show from Isreal who usually brings his friends to improve his sound. It's a fusion of afrobeat, funk, heavy psych, reggae, rnb, and general groove. His album seems timeless and fits many moods. Below are some tracks from his album.

What was it about the 80's? .:Jul 30 07:.
All I wanted was to be a ninja, Karate Kid part 2 touched my heart, and the band "Journey" spoke about love beyond conceivable limits. Well, at least they made it seem that way. The guys from sevenohfive.com created their own video rendition one of the greatest Journey songs ever. They did a good job following the original video as well, as you can see below.
Immem.com .:May 15 07:.
"imeem is an online community where artists, fans & friends can promote their content, share their tastes, and discover new blogs, photos, music and video."
I got turned on to imeem through a few 'music' friends of mine. I enjoy using this site and encourage other music/video/artist heads to use it too. If you're familiar with myspace (and i'm pretty sure 99% of you are) it works in the same sense, but rather you can upload media such as blogs, music, videos, images and create "showcases" on our site. The playlist is the most attractive feature. You can go onto other members or artists page and get a track and add it to your own playlist without uploading a thing.
Uploading doesn't restrict the size of your files, although you must keep a certain bit-rate (128 or less for you nerds). I've uploaded several of my mixes (see below) that range from 20-50 megabytes. Myspace only allows up to 10 megabytes. (for this i have to dumb down the rate to a nearly 24-32 bit-rate) One key thing about imeem's music player is that it gives you code to embed it to another site you may have. The only restrictions I've seen is when you embed an imeem player to myspace. (conflict of interest i guess)
It feels like imeem is geared towards independent media to provide an outlet for promoting and showcasing. Imeem associates with independant forces such as PLUG Independant Music Awards, Palm Pictures, Domino Recording Co., as well as various localized band competitions and smaller labels such as BBE, OM Records, XL Recordings , etc...
So check it out, imeem.com, try starting a profile, create a playlist, upload your music, video, and/or images, then add me as your friend (djgaveegav.imeem.com) . Imeem will let your creative voice be heard especially to likeminded / openminded individuals like yourself.
