Bling bling, it's for you

It's enough to give any European a case of cultural cringe. While the breakout
star of our custom-made ringtone industry is a pantless, animated amphibian
("the latest proof that Brits will purchase anything", Entertainment Weekly
justifiably sniffed when Crazy Frog crossed the Atlantic last month), America's
phone users get one of the most talented producers in pop. Timbaland, the studio
maven behind Missy Elliott among others, has just launched Get By, a "mobile
album" of seven specially crafted ringtones.
Get By is the inaugural offering from Made Hear, a ringtone provider launched by
mobile media company Zingy Inc (www.zingy.com) with MTV. It's a shrewd choice.
Not all music is suitable for ringtones - somebody once had the dreadful idea of
mimicking the fluid guitar riff from Guns N' Roses' Sweet Child O' Mine with
tinny bleeps - but Timbaland's simple, nagging synth riffs weather the
Even through phone speakers, the tones sound respectable; previewed on a
computer they're fantastic. The sinuous Snake Charmer is a bite-sized sequel to
Timbaland & Magoo's Indian Flute single, The Showdown and The VIP Room are
strident mob dramas, and Block Party is meaty, beaty electro. Almost all of them
could be extrapolated into Missy Elliott hits. No news yet on Made Hear's future
signings, but Lil' Jon, king of crunk and pathological brand-extender, has
produced some patience-testing vocal ringtones (featuring such well-loved
catchphrases as "Yeah!" and "What?") for a company going by the comically
inevitable name of BlingTones (www.blingtones.net).
Whereas Crazy Frog's demographic appears to be prepubescents and blithering
idiots, people intending to receive calls while getting crunk in da club are
clearly more demanding. Lil' Jon, who is also developing a phone-only golf game
featuring his good self, told the LA Times: "It's definitely new and innovative
to make music strictly for your cellphone. I can make songs about my momma
calling, my girlfriend, so many different things, so many different levels."
Truly, a golden age of creativity beckons. And readers of a nervous disposition
can rest assured that, unlike their aquatic rival, Timbaland and Lil' Jon are
both expected to keep their pants on.
