The original article can be found at: <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/08/13/les-paul-remembered-guitar-greats-on-their-true-hero/">www.rollingstone.com/</a><br /><br />Photo: courtesy of: Capak/WireImage<br /><br /><strong>Les Paul Remembered: Guitar Greats on Their True</strong><br /> <p>As word spread of the death of guitar pioneer Les Paul today, many of those he influenced jumped online (and called up <em>Rolling Stone</em>) to share their tributes to the father of the electric six-string. The next issue will have more tributes, but here&rsquo;s a survey of artists&rsquo; immediate reactions to the loss of one of the instruments&rsquo; true heroes:</p> <p><a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/photos/gallery/29647461/les_paul_the_guitar_greats_life">Look back at Paul&rsquo;s life in photos: Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen and more stars with the father of the electric guitar.</a></p> <p>&ldquo;My friend &amp; mentor Les Paul died today at 94, he was one of the most stellar human beings I&rsquo;ve ever known, rest in peace Les.&rdquo; &mdash; Slash</p> <p>&ldquo;Remembering Les Paul today. Just happened to have his namesake Gibson around my shoulder the last few days. Pictures of Les Paul all over the studio today. Very special day in here. You should wiki his life. Pretty amazing.&rdquo; &mdash; John Mayer</p> <p>&ldquo;RIP Les Paul-thankyou for the instruments that changed the course of music. If u have ever &ldquo;rocked&rdquo; or &ldquo;been rocked&rdquo; u can thank Les Paul.&rdquo; &mdash; Tom Morello</p> <p>&ldquo;The World Has Lost a Remarkable Innovator and Musician.&rdquo; &mdash; the Donnas</p> <p>&ldquo;The music industry has lost a giant! I&rsquo;m very saddened by the news of Les Paul&rsquo;s passing. I was lucky enough to have known Les as a friend, and admired him as a musician and innovator. He forever changed the way we listen to music.&rdquo; &mdash; Ace Frehley</p> <p>&ldquo;Les Paul set a standard for musicianship and innovation that remains unsurpassed. He was the original guitar hero, and the kindest of souls. Last October I joined him onstage at The Iridium club in NYC, and he was still shredding. He was and still is an inspiration to us all.&rdquo; &mdash; Joe Satriani</p> <p>&ldquo;There are very few human beings in history who touched so many people the way Les Paul did. Not only musicians. But anyone that loved music. He shared his gifts with all of us and brought people together with his brilliance and devotion to music and the art of sound. It was a privilege to have met him. He will be incredibly missed. But our blessing is to know that his spirit and soul will live for eternity in music everywhere.&rdquo; &mdash; The Hold Steady&rsquo;s Tad Kubler, who shared this photo with us as well:</p> <p>(photo on original article)<br /></p> <p><a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/29648217/les_paul_19152009">Read <em>Rolling Stone</em>&rsquo;s Les Paul obituary here.</a></p> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/308-rip-les-paul-thank-you-for-all-you-brought-to-modern-music <![CDATA[Cerrone's *Remix Cerrone - Je Suis Music* is now Available in the App store!]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/306-cerrone-s-remix-cerrone-je-suis-music-is-now-available-in-the-app-store Cerrone was one of the emblematic artists at the rise of the disco era and is today recognised as one of the most visionnary electro scene precursors.<br /><br />Just a few weeks ago, in the midst of the debates about music piracy, he decided to offer his faithful fans his latest album as a fully free download, right on his <a href="http://www.cerrone.net" target="_blank">official site</a>.<br /><br />And now, he's taken another step towards his fans with "Je Suis Music" in multitrack audio format... a completely new way to listen to music.<br /><br />Mark Cerrone became seduced by the creative spectrum the iKlax technology has to offer and comments "iKlax offers access to the secrets of a hit, beyond the usual mp3, allowing to enter the core of creation. A great and novel priviledge I believe".<br /><br />So, here's what's in store for you, if you'd like to get hands (fingers) on with the "Remix Cerrone - Je Suis Music" club hit multitrack application for your iPhone and iPod Touch - now available in <a href="http://bit.ly/Vvml1" target="_blank">Apple's App Store</a>.<br /><br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; "><img src="http://blog.iklax.com/img/deco_cat_nav.png" />&nbsp;</span><a href="http://iklaxmusic.com/en/today" target="_blank">More iKlax multitrack Apps</a> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/306-cerrone-s-remix-cerrone-je-suis-music-is-now-available-in-the-app-store <![CDATA[Cagedbaby *Forced* iPhone App Now on the AppStore + the little story!]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/303-cagedbaby-forced-iphone-app-now-on-the-appstore-the-little-story That's it! All rounder Tom "Cagedbaby" Gandey's multitrack iphone App is finally out.<br /><br />The story hasn't been told yet, and it's the sort that has become a bit usual with Apple's application review system...<br /><br />Have you ever been on <a href="http://www.myspace.com/cagedbaby" target="_blank">Cagedbaby's myspace</a>? Well the "Freakshow" artwork, cover of his latest single "Forced" made for some serious concern at the Apple...<br /><br />When the app was first submitted, the recommended age for using the app was the usual (4+), but apparently, the cover is offending... True, on the cover displayed on the website you can clearly read "Sorry We're FUCKED", and there's a little image amongst the many in the patchwork where you see a young lady's breasts, walking along in a social event...<br /><br />But neither on iTunes nor on the iPhone is it nearly possible to see those things, simply due to the size! And the app was refused, artwork had to be changed to gain re-approval and so the time passed. It now says the minimum age to download it is 17! I'm not here to judge American Puritanism, but.....<br /><br />The waiting is now over! Don't hold back, indulge yourself and get it. You will not regret it. The track is simply pure Cagedbaby creation, fresh, groovy and efficient. It works just as well on the dance floor, the radio or on your iPhone / iPod Touch.<br /><br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; "><img src="http://blog.iklax.com/img/deco_cat_nav.png" />&nbsp;</span><a href="http://bit.ly/qtREt" target="_blank">Get the app here</a><br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; "><img src="http://blog.iklax.com/img/deco_cat_nav.png" />&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.myspace.com/cagedbaby" target="_blank">myspace.com/cagedbaby</a><br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; "><img src="http://blog.iklax.com/img/deco_cat_nav.png" />&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.iklaxmusic.com" target="_blank">Other iKlax iPhone Apps</a> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/303-cagedbaby-forced-iphone-app-now-on-the-appstore-the-little-story <![CDATA[Remix David Bowie's Space Oddity - Video Demo]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/299-remix-david-bowie-s-space-oddity-video-demo <object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ADbcEsaQwZ0&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ADbcEsaQwZ0&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></object> <br /> <br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 10px; "><img src="http://blog.iklax.com/img/deco_cat_nav.png" />&nbsp;</span><a href="http://bit.ly/spaceoddiity" target="">Download the app from the Apple AppStore (iTunes)</a> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/299-remix-david-bowie-s-space-oddity-video-demo <![CDATA[EMI and iKLAX announce the launch of the multitrack iPhone application ]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/281-emi-and-iklax-announce-the-launch-of-the-multitrack-iphone-application <strong>To celebrate the 40th anniversary release of "Space Oddity" and the first step on the moon, a new iPhone application allowing users to remix the title will be available on July 20th.</strong><br /><br />40 years to the day that Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon, EMI and Iklax will create a unique opportunity for David Bowie fans: the chance for them to download and mix the original multi-tracks of &lsquo;Space Oddity,&rsquo; who also celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.<br /><br />As David Bowie is a pioneer of technology, and keen to push the boundaries, now is the time that his fans are afforded the opportunity to have access to the original 1969 multi-tracks of &lsquo;Space Oddity,&rsquo; allowing them to become remixer and create their own version of the song.<br /><br /> Originally released on 11th July 1969 to coincide with the Apollo 11 moon landings, &lsquo;Space Oddity&rsquo; was a cultural land for David Bowie as an artist &ndash; it was featured by the BBC in its television coverage of the lunar landing, and the song later won an Ivor Novello award. The song&rsquo;s mysterious character, Major Tom, has become a recurrent theme throughout Bowie&rsquo;s work and career, being revisited in the song &lsquo;Ashes To Ashes&rsquo;.<br /><br /> <strong>The iKlax &lsquo;Space Oddity Multitrack App&rsquo; for iPhone and iPod Touch</strong>, (sold on the iTunes App store) <strong>will enable fans a unique and exciting opportunity</strong>. They can remix the individual tracks: vocals, acoustic 12-string guitar, drums and bass, mellotron, organ and guitars, guitar solo, strings and other orchestration; Fans can &ldquo;shake&rdquo; the phone for random mixes, and save their mix versions.<br /> This is a revolutionary experience for music fans to recreate their own versions of one of popular music&rsquo;s most iconic songs, all on the go, anytime, anywhere!<br /><br /> Furthermore, the <strong>"Space Oddity EP"</strong>, also released on 20th July, includes four versions of the song. When fans purchase the EP they will also receive the original eight stems/multi-tracks for free, enabling them to remix the song.<br /><br />iKlax multitrack software for Mac or PC, (<a href="http://www.iklaxmusic.com/davidbowie" target="_blank">www.iklaxmusic.com/davidbowie</a>) allows fans the opportunity to use the original 8-track stems from the EP without complicated home studio software.

This singer rocked, really!<br />I am not a "pure" fan, I don't have any of his album at home, but I sincerely measure his impact on music History and industry.<br />Even when I hear some of the new songs coming from the young generation, I can feel inspirations from Michael Jackson.<br /><br />Like some of the best artists of the 20th Century like Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison or John Lennon, he sent us "in others dimensions".<br />Like touched by "God's Finger".<br />And we had the chance, I really believe it, to live at the same period.<br /><br />Of course, success, power, money and pressure were too wide for just a single human being.<br />That&rsquo;s the cynical part of life: the higher you go, the lower you fall.<br />I sincerely believe that no one of us could be prepared to this kind of experience.<br />I don't justify anything, I didn't know him personally neither the "real" stories.<br /><br />But I am sure that History will remember his impact on Music and that we will keep something of his magic in our feeling while dancing or singing.<br /> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/272-michael-jackson-is-dead-god-bless-michael <![CDATA[Cerrone's 1978 Hit "Je Suis Music" remixed by Armand Van Helden Demo]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/270-cerrone-s-1978-hit-je-suis-music-remixed-by-armand-van-helden-demo Get all the information on this iPhone / iPod Touch multitrack application on <a href="http://www.iklaxmusic.com/index.php?id=13" target="">www.iklaxmusic.com</a> <br /> <br /> <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/rCMI2xpOvQc&amp;rel=0&amp;color1=0xb1b1b1&amp;color2=0xcfcfcf&amp;feature=player_profilepage&amp;fs=1" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/rCMI2xpOvQc&amp;rel=0&amp;color1=0xb1b1b1&amp;color2=0xcfcfcf&amp;feature=player_profilepage&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="425" height="344"></object> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/270-cerrone-s-1978-hit-je-suis-music-remixed-by-armand-van-helden-demo <![CDATA[Cagedbaby "Forced" is in the pipe - check the demo out!]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/268-cagedbaby-forced-is-in-the-pipe-check-the-demo-out For more information on this iPhone / iPod Touch application - please go to <a href="http://www.iklaxmusic.com/index.php?id=3" target="">www.iklaxmusic.com</a><br /> <br /> <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/W2ek4HjkGPU&rel=0&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&feature=player_profilepage&fs=1" /></param /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /></param /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /></param /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/W2ek4HjkGPU&rel=0&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&feature=player_profilepage&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/268-cagedbaby-forced-is-in-the-pipe-check-the-demo-out <![CDATA[IKLAX REMIX CONTEST WITH DJ MAZE!]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/251-iklax-remix-contest-with-dj-maze From June 3rd to July 15th.<br />It's never been so easy to remix.

Their latest export is This Town Needs Guns, a band being hailed as the darling buds of the thriving UK indie scene. The band have toured across Europe with the likes of I Was A Cub Scout, Meet Me In St Louis, Rolo Tomassi and Maps &amp; Atlases and the release of 2007&rsquo;s split EP with Cats And Cats And Cats garnered critical acclaim from fans and press alike.<br /><br />This Town Needs Guns entered the studio in April 2008, setting out to find an intricate balance between indie rock, catchy pop and technical prowess, all while ignoring the lure of special effects and studio wizardry. Through this process, their debut full-length Animals was born; a collection of songs that bring to light the band&rsquo;s pure, clever and earnest song writing ability. Tim Collis&rsquo; guitar sounds as though it&rsquo;s being caressed by 6 hands as his brother, Chris, flings his sticks around the drum kit not wanting to leave any tiny patch un-touched. Bassist Dan Adams completes the rhythm section with his dancey, jazz influenced bass lines while Stuart Smith&rsquo;s vocals dip and soar, taking this record from thought provoking depths to sky-scraping triumphs.<br /><br /> <a href="http://www.myspace.com/archwoodmanntimber" target="_blank">Arch Woodman &amp; Hope+Belief Collective</a><br /><br />Young, French and acoustic, Arch Woodmann is the solo project of a former post-punk/post-rocker who chose to leave - for a while - electricity behind him. After having fallen in love with folk music, he started to focuse on his own production, which mixes the melancholy of Sun Kil Monn to the experimental jazz touch of Do Make Say Think, with a few Broken Social Scene-like poppy choruses. Song after song, Arch Woodmann breaks free from his influences, building a unique universe where he invites several musicians from different music styles (pop, rock, jazz, classical).<br /><br /> Friday 17 April @ la Luna Negra, Bayonne, France 9 PM (12&euro;/8&euro;) Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/224-this-town-needs-guns-arch-woodmann-at-la-luna-negra-bayonne-france-friday-17-april <![CDATA[The Voca People - Eight tracks, no instruments!]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/222-the-voca-people-eight-tracks-no-instruments <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/N6EYrqIn0yI&hl=en&fs=1" /></param /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /></param /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /></param /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/N6EYrqIn0yI&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/222-the-voca-people-eight-tracks-no-instruments <![CDATA[Phoenix Is Reaching Out To Their Fans]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/214-phoenix-is-reaching-out-to-their-fans <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-size:10.5pt;mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt;color:black;mso-ansi-language:EN-GB">More and more multitrack tracks are released by bands every day.

Even more so with the computer, that allows to digitalize sound, and therefore process all the little bits (stem tracks) separately.<br /><br /> Although this is no news for artists &amp; sound engineers, it remains fairly outside the public&rsquo;s dimension, which generally is thought to [only] enjoy the finished entity of the song.<br /><br /> Sometimes though, perhaps in a live show, the listener has the opportunity to listen to a musicians solo, and discover the quality of the person on a particular instrument, and the quality of the sound of that particular instrument.<br /><br /> Music&rsquo;s evolution, since Man discovered the joy of it, has gone through the creation, evolution and establishment of various music instruments, along the use of the beautiful capability of some to sing&hellip;<br /><br /> Again, the onset of computers and technology, has spawned new areas of development for music, a subject probably still debated by some.<br /><br /> I believe that this evolution keeps going, and, as you&rsquo;re reading this on the iKlax blog, you probably already know where I&rsquo;m getting at here.<br /><br /> Of course, as an employee at iKlax, I see the iKlax audio format as a great step forward in music&rsquo;s evolution. Today, its true that it takes awhile to just grasp what it is, what it basically does, and furthermore, what it actually could do.<br /><br /> It has been just over a year that the company exists, and a couple of years before that, that the idea, the concept was born out of a passionate music lover who was topped with enterprise ambition, Owen Lagadec. Assisted technically by Ivan Duchemin, a French top IT audio developer, they&rsquo;ve laid the foundation of multitrack playback, that is, a simple way for [basic] users like me, to discover a widely ignored dimension in/of music. And this is just skimming the surface of the various uses the iKlax format can potentially have. The new limits as far as creation and joy of listening goes will be set by artists themselves. They are the matter creators. iKlax is just another string to their bows, another tool, to get us vibrating under the sound of our favourite tunes and songs, whatever the style.<br /><br /> Since I have had more opportunities to listen, I can boast around, being one of the first to really experience it. And now it&rsquo;s coming to all, with the contemporary music that we enjoy on a daily basis. So I invite you to discover known and less known artists on <a href="http://iklaxmusic.com" target="_blank">iklaxmusic.com</a> for the computer based tracks, and to the <a href="http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/com.apple.jingle.search.DirectAction/search?term=iklax&amp;media=software" target="_blank">App Store</a>, if you&rsquo;re a happy iPhone or iPod Touch user to download the iKlax applications. They&rsquo;re store in the Music category.

Probably cos&rsquo; iKlax just launched its new music application for the iPhone and iPod Touch users. Music will now become accessible in its multitrack form right on your mobile device!<br /><br />The 20 million iPhone and iPod Touch users worldwide can now browse the innards of a song, activate and deactivate the various tracks to vary the songs arrangement and change the listening experience.<br /><br />The singles or albums recorded into this application will be available for download through the App Store (an international success with 500 million downloads since its opening in July 08').<br /><br /><b>The Concept:</b><br />Each "application" corresponds to an artist.<br />Each "application" can contain one or more songs.<br />The application can be offered for free or for a fee, according to the artist or labels strategy choice.<br />Every application can be entirely customized for every artist, including buttons, sliders, general graphic design and text.<br />The application can feature a direct link to iTunes.<br /><br /><b>The functionalities:</b><br />The <b>Playlist Tab </b>provides access to the songs.<br /><br />The <b>Multitrack Tab</b> provides access to the multitrack structure of the current <br />song.

It increases visibility on a new digital device and offersbetter chances of music sales.<br /><br />Negotiations with labels and artists from France and the UK are underway. The first major releases on the iPhone are expected in February.

Six months later, the software has been downloaded over 7,000 times, a feat for music software!&rdquo;</div><br /> <div>&ldquo;iKlax Creator Pro&rsquo;s evolutions, brought by invaluable user feedback, include exclusive functionalities like <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">multiple mixes creation</span> in one single file and the <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">dynamic volumes mixing</span>.&rdquo;</div><br /> <div>&ldquo;Following the company&rsquo;s launch in January, other initiatives from France &amp; Korea prove that interactive music is very contemporary. In February we were ahead of our competitors, an advance that we&rsquo;ve kept thanks to major innovations like our exclusive constraint system that acts on tracks and volumes. This enables the creator of the music to control the way it is listened to. As an artist myself, I understand how important it is to guarantee a creation&rsquo;s integrity. We are the only ones to offer this,&rdquo; concludes Mr. Lagadec.</div> <div><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">MAJOR INNOVATIONS ON MIXING</span></div> <div>iKlax Creator Pro has been designed to perfectly integrate traditional creation methods and occurs at the end of the process, once the creator has recorded and arranged his tracks on his usual sequencer.</div> <div><a href="http://www.iklaxmedia.com/article-72-iklax-creator-pro.html" target="_blank">iKlax Creator Pro</a> brings true innovations to audio mixing:</div> <div>- <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">The ability to import multi-format stem tracks</span> without decompressing (wave, aiff, mp3, ogg vorbis, &hellip;): the tracks remain in their original format throughout the mixing process.</div> <div>- <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">The first multi-format drag &amp; drop virtual mixing table</span>: the drag &amp; drop system allows the creator to add stem tracks to the virtual mixing table, on the fly.</div> <div>- <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">The unlimited creation of mixes</span> (iKmix) for every single file.</div> <div>- <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">The mixing &amp; selection constraints setting</span></div> <div>- <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">The export of the file in the multitrack &amp; interactive iKlax format</span>, or in mp3, ogg vorbis and wave.</div> <div><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">FULL CONTROL</span></div> <div>&ldquo;Beyond the interactivity, the great improvement of iKlax Creator Pro, is its mixing engine&rdquo;, specifies Laurent Primaux, R&amp;D CO. &ldquo;For instance, you can create mixing rules allowing stem tracks&rsquo; volumes to be linked. Therefore, when a user moves a volume slide bar, the other volume slide bars will also move while retaining the same relation. This has never been done before.&rdquo;</div> <div><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">USEFUL INFORMATION</span></div> <div>Please find all technical information on our website: www.iklax.com</div> <div>In order to ease the transition to interactive music, iKlax offers a <a href="http://www.iklaxmedia.com/article-72-iklax-creator-pro.html" target="_blank">FREE VERSION of iKlax Creator Pro</a>.

Loads of illegal downloading and copying, which for some is seen as pure theft, for others as free advertising and a hint on the music's quality (its wanted when downloaded!).<br /><br />Now we come along with our multi-track audio format, providing a novel outlook for anyone involved with music.<br /><br /><u>New opportunities include</u>:<br /><br />:: <b>creativity </b>:: - :: <b>interactivity </b>:: - :: <b>richer content</b> ::<br />Artists can include more into every single song they produce, e.g. solos that have been squashed now have their place alongside, the user able to listen to the song over and over, just swapping between the versions offered by the artists.<br /><br />:: <b>promotion </b>::<br />iKlax contains a <i><b>natural promotion tool</b></i>, which is easily exploited by listeners through iKlax Player... they can get involved in the song by re-mixing the song using the tracks provided by artists &amp; bands, without having to download source material nor using complex sequencing equipment. Feedback would be counted in the tens of thousand or more, compared with the thousands successfully achieved by Radiohead for instance.<br /><br />And YES, it's all new. Artists &amp; bands should grab the opportunity to be among the first to show off their tunes.<br /><br />Don't hesitate prompting, poking, asking or bugging me with questions, I will answer all of them (if less than a 1000!).<br /><br /><i><b>CALL, GRAB, GET YOUR FAVOURITE ARTISTS TO PRODUCE IKLAX TRAX!!!</b></i> Thu, 1 Jan 1970 GMT http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/123-new-opportunities <![CDATA[iklaxmusic.com artists]]> http://blog.iklax.com/en/index/120-iklaxmusic-com-artists Have you checked the latests added songs on iklaxmusic.com?
