To listen to music, I sometimes use Iceberg (and have previously written about it). They have their own cloud based player, so you lose control over what you listen to (although categories exist and user feedback is accepted). I assume that’s what they’re after in the end, to decide what gets airplay. Even so, they’re back to
Up until now, I’ve thought of remixes as different takes or renditions –some authorized, some not, sometimes by the original author/s, sometimes not– but all the while never impressing me as much as the original work they’re based on. In come two versions of a piece called “Intro” by The XX.
Había planeado publicar este articulo con un vídeo de canciones Nu Folk de Christian Aguila , pero después de esperar por un año y de perder contacto, decidí mover adelante sin su música de solista.

Features included: a native player that allowed users to create play lists, use of metadata, and a fancy algorithm to place higher quality results
The above is from a tribute the 2008 vh1 Hall of Fame ceremony. Wow, and I thought Prince was just going to go through the motions and join in on the sing-along. I knew he could play guitar but he blew all those other musicians away, considering they are only song writers singing from a
Lakitas Matriasaya is an independent Andean musical band that consists mainly of Andean panpipes and two drums –a bass and snare drum (and a third percussionist by way of hand-held cymbals). Fifteen members make up the band at present. Twelve pipers sing and play the pipes, while three play percussion. The band formed in Valparaíso,
I never really liked Run DMC’s remake, if that’s what you can call it, of Aerosmith’s hit “Walk this Way”. Depending on how you look at it, it may not have been a remake as much as a legitimate new creative product. I doubt the latter, as the guitar riff is unmistakably Aerosmith, and for it
