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.
