Because not enough of the world’s music has Timbaland’s stamp on it, he teamed up with Rockstar Games to create a music mixer based on this Flash toy. The result is Beaterator, and it’s coming out for the PSP on September 29th, replete with beats, loops, and a veritable smorgasbord of sounds meticulously crafted by the hit machine himself.
Between this, the utilitarian KORG DS-10, and the inimitable Electroplankton, developers are carving out an interesting niche for music production on handheld video game consoles. Check out this video to see Timbaland in action, Beaterator in hand.

If you ignore the absolutely inane questions and lame vanity reaction shots from the interviewer, this brief cast interview from Sundance, with the cast of the upcoming Precious offers a bit of insight. Can’t wait until someone credible talks to this cast as it looks like they bring much to the table!
Are you tired of your only “performances” of The Ting Tings being dudes at bars screaming “THEY CALL ME STACY!” into beer bottles? Me too.
This can all change when the UK duo comes back to the U.S. in September for a 12-stop tour. Katie White and Jules De Martino will be showcasing their 2008 CD, We Started Nothing by means of an arena circuit over the face of the US (and one stop in Canada too!).
Columbia Records are hosting a fly-away contest for The Ting Ting’s upcoming performance at New York’s acclaimed Madison Square Garden. To enter, simply count the total number of times Katie says “That’s Not My Name” in the video. Everyone who answers correctly is automatically entered to win, with one lucky winner earning two round-trip tickets to New York, one night of hotel accommodations and a pair of tickets to the show.
If you can count, you can win.
