Installing 12 year old php script on Ubuntu

This is a temporary measure. Old server went away and we needed at least a virtual private server. Installing MySQL and Apache were a couple of apt-get commands.

Porting from Echonest with Amen

While poking around in Vamp Plugins, I decided to make another quick internet search and found a new replacement for EchoNest Remix! It’s called Amen, after the ubiquitous Amen Break.
