Beware of some mature pixel matter.

Amazing Impromptu Beatbox

The guys singing in this video are called Naturally7. This took place on a subway in Paris. This would put me in such a good mood.

Buddy Cuts His Balls Off

This is Vitas. A once popular russian singer who got accused of lip syncing.
Sounds like he cut his balls off.

Electronic Music Lesson

This is a great link. Some dude named Ishkur put together this tutorial on the different types of electronic music and instruments. Each bubble click plays at least one sample of that style of music. Some music types link back their associated radio stations.

Final Word: This is fun to play with and a good reference for the next time someone asks you what kind of music you like. Cheers Ishkur. I wonder how much DI paid to get their name on this?

Discowiki: discogs.com

Once a word reminiscent of kiwis and other strange exotic fruit, the term “wiki” has now widely become loosely synonymous with “mucho mas informaciones” in Spanish. One popular example of this type of online collaborative content gathering is wikipedia.org; anyone can contribute, and as such, information is collected and compiled at an astonishing rate (hence the term “wiki”, which actually means “rápido” in Spanish).

Now to get to the point. Similar to wikipedia in the wiki-esque sense, discogs.com presents arguably the most complete online music catalogue in existence. Primarily a knowledge database, it also serves as a music market place and online community for contributing members (vinyl records as well as cd’s and cassettes can be bought and sold, members can communicate directly to other members, happiness abounds). Membership is free and only required for contributors or for people who have so many vinyl records at home that their insurance company requires them to catalogue their entire volume (this is done very easily through the site as most titles have already been contributed and your list when completed can be easily converted to an excel spreadsheet, for the real pros). Otherwise, feel free to search for your favourite group or artist and see exactly when your favourite EP was released in Japan and even memorize the catalogue number for those Friday night trivia games with your friends and family.

Final Word: Fun stuff !

Bumpin House Station

Friskyradio.com has been around since 2001 and seems to be quite well known by dance music fans. I found out about this site though the Soulseek “house” chat room. I ask a room of 300 people for a good online house radio station, Frisky was the overwhelming response. I listened I liked.

Final Word: Popular, easy to navigate, reliable for bumpin beats.
