Jamglue.com is exactly the type of site that we all love. It’s an site designed around bringing remixing to the masses. It enables Sally home-studio to bring her remix skills (or develop them if she has none) to a wider audience.
Basically, there is an online remix interface that lets you take music and go to town with it right then and there. The interface is surprisingly simple to use. You can see a picture of it here: jamglue-mixer.JPG.
The downside is it that it relies on material already in Jamglue for the most part. You can definitely upload your own (outside of the mixer), and although they encourage you not to upload copyrighted material, you can bet your bottom dollar that people do. So the possibilities truly are endless.
I think that’s a pretty amazing little functionality. Now anytime you’re bored at work you can throw together a little mix to dazzle your co-workers. Tired of hearing that same old Chris Brown song played by the cute-but-annoying girl two cubicles over? Now you can introduce her to something new!
I think the best part is that you can actually remix what other people have done to make it your own. So you can improve on the mixes others have made, and fixed their…flaws.
And it’s not just no name bedroom producers that are getting on board with this project. Some of the most talented names in the business are on board. Hi-Tek, pictured above, held a Guest Verse contest on Jamglue. Any schmuck on the internet could roll in and record a verse for his new single. The winner gets to actually be placed on it, next to such illustrious names as Ghostface and Raekwon. Now that is a hell of a prize.
Anyways, go check it out.
Turns out Jamglue isn’t the only site out there for this kind of thing. Yourspins is a nearly identical site with a much more intuitive forum section. Check it out.
