See Things Differently
Jamglue is a great website for those who like to mash up their favourite tracks. It combines a fantastic remix application within a Social Networking environment. I’m a lot more impressed with this site than other remix sites I’ve seen from U-myx or Fireplayer. The remixer does a great job of replicationg an off-the-shelf software package. It allows you to upload your own tracks, add mixes from other users, include FX and save and share. But it’s the community aspect which makes this so much fun – you can share with friends and post new mixes to your profile.
For artistes and labels it offers a new and effective way to distribute tracks and allow fans to create a new mash-up or remix, lengthening the life of the track, building artiste awareness and anticipation of new material. It is a relatively easy process to register and upload remix parts for members to use. The community aspect allows you to place the remixes on your site. There are legal aspects which mean the commercialisation of the remixes is limited, but should not detract from the benefits of having your music within the Jamglue network.
