There is sooooo much amazing music out there and soooo many talented people and soooo much of it is findable because of the web. It feels almost impossible to keep track of it all.

Real World Records has a really cool thing associated with one of their websites. You can download the raw files of a number of their recordings which can then be manipulated, mixed, and posted as "new" work on the website. A few years ago they had a competition to remix Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey." The last few days I've been listening to a number of the remixes again. Some are just amazing.

Here is a link to the original video of Peter Gabriel's recording of the song in case you need a reminder of what it sounds like (sorry youtube won't allow me to embed the video).

and here is one of my favorite remixes... "The Ballad of Enos" Remix by Loveshadow

Pretty amazing isn't it?
