have you tried this website? it could be a help for d.j. block.

"We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like."

i need to experiment with it more. i thought that if it aligned songs in the same key and rythm, it might line up "give peace a chance" with "we will we will rock you." it is not random enough, though.

Just got around to trying it on a friend's recommendation. I tried the Minutemen to start and it played a not-so-great song from 3-Way Tie. Then the next song is a Smiths song, then comes the Jazz Butcher, and then the Only Ones, before circling back to another Minutemen song. All were fine songs, mind you, but I'll be damned if I can really see the thread there, at least between the Minutemen and the rest of 'em.

So, I type in Sonic Youth and it plays a Sonic Youth song (at least a few seconds here and there of a latter LP), like any good jukebox. I gave it thumbs up so it tried to sell the LP to me. Am I missing something here?
