PacemakerPacemaker Editor enables limitless creative possibilities via an intuitive interface tailor-made for desktop mix production. We’re really happy with the interface, where we’ve aimed for a truly physical experience emulating that of the hand-held Pacemaker. This is all drag-and-drop, pull, stretch, bend and move around. In essence, it’s about adding your personal preferred colouring to a selection of tracks (sort of, conducting your own orchestra with a couple of spray cans in each hand).
Let's Mix: Pacemaker
DJ system and disc jockey mixer equipment available for both PC and Mac.

Free Bees - 9/11's a Lie (Stayin' Alive)A YouTube-based political cover/parody act calling itself The Free Bees rewrote the lyrics of the 1970s disco anthem and Saturday Night Fever theme "Stayin' Alive" to promote the theory that the tragedy of 9/11 was a home-grown conspiracy.
The 'Free Bees' are looking for help in spreading their '9/11's a lie' music video and song far and wide. Reluctantly they have decided that even though they're extremely proud of the work, they are releasing it anonymously.
They believe that this music video has the potential to reach a large audience and as a work of infotainment is amusing, informative and thought provoking.
There's no official statement yet on how the surviving members of the Bee Gees feel about having their iconic hit rewritten ...

Sound Index - The top 1000 chart right nowThe Sound Index is a massive index of the hottest bands and tracks that are being talked about on the internet right now.
Every six hours the Sound Index crawls some of the biggest music sites on the internet - Bebo, MySpace, Last.FM, iTunes, Google and YouTube - to find out what people are writing about, listening to, watching, downloading and logging on to. It then counts and analyses this data to make an instant list of the most popular 1000 artists and tracks on the web. The more blog mentions, comments, plays, downloads and profile views an artist or track has, the higher up the Sound Index they are. So, the Sound Index is a music buzz index controlled entirely by the public.
The Sound Index - a new online service by the BBC.
Currently in the Index Position: 896
Elton John: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Well, interesting idea from BBC to pool so many resources together ...

The sounds are like a drum and chimes, isn't it?
