Mashups?

Follow-up to Call For Submission: Mashups from á la discothèque

Ah, so it’s all mashups round here at the moment is it? In that case you’ll be wanting to look at Good Blimey a possibly illegal, but certainly interesting website which collates loads of brilliant, and not so brilliant mashups, from a wide variety of DJs.

Now to save you all some sifting I’ve dug up a few of my favourites, but there’s certainly others on there you might like more.

Peaches vs. The Rapture – ‘Fuck The Jealous Lovers’ by unknown

Ok, the mixing here ain’t the best. Peaches is too low in the mix, but the timing and the idea are rather fine. In fact this one is crying out for a proper version, or hell an actual performance from the two acts. Contains some high class swearing, but it involves Peaches so what were you expecting?

Dizzee Rascal vs. Interpol – ‘Live Stand Up’ by McSleazy

Now this is a bit of class. Well put together, and Dizzee sounds good against the New Yorkers’ dark indie. Also as it’s not a massively well known Dizzee track it functions with less of the novelty element that some mashups can have – it works well enough on its own.

Green Day vs. Opus 3 – ‘It’s a Fine Holiday’ by Divide and Kreate

Actually my favourite mashup of all time, partly because as a small thing I really loved the Opus 3 dance version of this track, and amazingly this works despite both songs being in different time signatures, and being rather unlikely bedfellows. No idea who came up with the idea (someone called Divide and Kreate) but it’s brilliant.

Kelly Clarkson vs. Rammstein – ‘Since You’ve Been Rosenrot’ by DJ Schmolli

Yes, you read that right. American Idol warbler Clarkson and industrial camp metal German dudes Rammstein, all mixed up and sounding sufficiently over the top for fans of both. Try it, you might like it!

The promised mash up tracks

Follow-up to Call For Submission: Mashups from á la discothèque

In the comments to this entry I promised “I’ll be on this like a mofo, mashups are probably my strongest area of musical expertise. POSTS TO COME!” then never delivered. Consider this the first instalment.

First up we have I’m Real A Little While, by Huerzo. This is a mash up of U2’s “In a Little While” with J-Lo’s “I’m Real”.

I don’t know who Huerzo is, but I sure like his mashups. You can find more here.

I first heard that mash up on the 4th Make Some Noise podcast, a brilliant selection of mash ups and remixes presented by Andy Churchill, one of whose tracks I’ve chosen to feature next. This is a favourite of mine, Cleaning Out My Fly, Eminem’s “Cleaning Out My Closet” VS Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away”. Simple, but I like it.

Finally I want to introduce you to a classic: Soulwax’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit vs Bootylicious” (Nirvana vs Destiny’s Child). I first heard this on Soulwax’s excellent Christmas Hang The DJ Mix on Radio 1 back in 2001. However, it’s a little unclear if the mashup is actually theirs so any advice/correction on that would be appreciated. Here’s a video mash up for double fun (the editor seems to have made the video Destiny’s Child heavy, which, given their yumminess, I have little complaint about).

Actually, I’m pretty sure the music used there is an inferior edit to the one used on the Hang the DJ set, but I’m leaving it anyway.

That’s enough for now. I hope you like.

Call For Submission: Mashups

I hereby demand mashups! They can occasionally be better than the original, which makes them wonderfully special.

As first contributor to this, I give you a Loo and Placido mashup of The Beatles’ (Girl), Black-eyed Peas (Let’s Get It Started), Ludacris and Kelis. Much better than the original version of Girl :)

Loo & Placido – Black Beatles
