Rapid ramp up for feature selection

I was asked to find good features for predictions related to the recommendations algorithms at Outbrain
What are good tools for pouring data and getting significantly influential features to stand out?

What I'm basically trying to do is to automate feature selection in a rapid manner in order to check out some log hanging fruits.

I have a lot of sympathy to SNoW from my M.Sc. related work as well as C4.5

What about WEKA?

I'd be happy to hear proposals from your experience.
