    Several artists have started taking up the challenge, ie the Beastie Boys,
    Chumbawumba, John Mellencamp (!), Billy Bragg, etc. and there are numerous
    different artists joining different groups all sayin the same thing.

    Ninja Tune has been viralling Saul Williams "Not In My Name" around the
    internet now since January 28th. If anyone is interested in doing a mix
    described in this email, we suggest you follow the instructions for submitting
    a mix to Solid Steel in the sig file below, although Solid Steel does reserve
    the right to determine the quality standards b4 airing a mix.

    Here's a record label listening & doing.

    btw: we looked on and couldnt find the link. sorry if its
    already been posted but would like to see it.
