Sampling, Mashing, Sharing
This is a community music site featuring remixes licensed under Creative Commons, where you can listen to, sample, mash-up, or interact with music in whatever way you want.

Here is another Music site, http://garageband.com/ which uses Creative Commons.
"We've recently added several heavy-hitters to our team. With the expanded team, we plan to expand our services by developing a brand new consumer service (code-named iJam) for the iPod and MySpace generation. The new service will focus on social music discovery in a broader sense, by including mainstream artists and including your friends. These ideas will remain true to our historic mission of creating opportunity for musicians and redefining how music is discovered. http://www.ijam.com
We also operate Gcast, a service that lets anybody create and share their own podcast for free, going beyond music to allow anybody to get their voice heard.
I found it at this Music site http://www.downhillbattle.org/
Downhill Battle is a non-profit organization working to support participatory culture and build a fairer music industry.
They have some great stuff on the site like "Who's getting the job done" section

talking about! Learn more
What's on this page?
This page lists all of the latest tracks posted to the MP3 blogs we
regularly check. You can browse as far back as April 2005, and
preview a few of the recently posted tracks.
Song listings that appear on this website are automatically gathered
from music blogs all over the internet.
We do this to let people discover new artists, fall in love, buy
their CDs and go to their shows.
If you are an artist (or represent an artist) and are concerned about
tracks appearing in our listings, you can find more information here
and are welcome to contact us directly.
Ever since we started the Music Genome Project, our friends would ask:
Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?
Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.
We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.
