Remember the last KSXi track I posted? That one is still my favorite but here’s another good one. Have a fun dose of some retro techno. Enjoy!

Happy Friday folks! It’s a mashup day here on PaperMash and I’ve got some good ones for you.
I’m starting out with an old White Panda because they’ve been pumping out so many fabulous new tracks I haven’t had time. So here’s one of their great ones that takes T.I. and Passion Pit and makes something awesome. Enjoy!
Next up is a track from the Friendly Giant‘s new album. It’s not new but he’s tweaked the mix to something vastly superior to the previous version. It emphasizes the good parts and irons out the key conflicts in the middle. An excellent version of “Beautiful Girls”.
I am so glad that it’s summer again. So is Mashup-Germany. Here’s his new ode to welcome in the summer. Fun and layered. Enjoy!
I think I’ll end with an instrumental. I love progressive house and I don’t get to post it enough so here’s a progressive house mashup! Yay! Have a great weekend.
Well this has been a productive day for me. It’s my day off so that’s why I’ve posted so much. My summer will really start in about three weeks and then I will be able to sustain a few posts a day. It will be great. Consider this a preview. It’s about time for a dubstep post!
First off, I bought the Orange Box from Steam the other day and played Portal for the first time. Such an awesome game. So here’s a dubstep homage to Portal from J-Slice777.
Next up is a remix from our friends over at Robotic Pirate Monkey industries where chill high quality dubstep is produced. This time they’ve sunk their electronic claws into the classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers. So good. Spotted this one (and the next) over at Earmilk. If you missed their first mixtape, check it out here. And their new (mini)mixtape is on their site.
I love Skylar Grey’s voice. This is just some weird juxtaposition though. Her voice, then industrial synths. Not sure I like this. But I would totally dance to it. Mashup? I think it is.
Now to recover, some smoother dubstep. Following that, how about a Fleet Foxes remix. Sound good? I thought so. Think of it as a bandaid for your ears.
Nancy Sinatra? Dubstep? Sounds like a good idea. Sounds real good.
Now let’s slow down a little. Slow dubstep is always really chill and relaxed but feels so cool. When t.A.T.u comes into the mix it’s interesting indeed. KickShifta has spun t.A.T.u in a completely different way for me. I’ve always heard more happycore sounds from them. This is a great remix. Enjoy.
And to finish the post off, here’s a track off of Earmilk’s latest Filthy Friday. I swear I get 70% of my dubstep over there. Quality blog. Anyways this is a remix of Oh Land’s “Son of a Gun”. I love the original so I really approve of this. Oh Land is touring with Sia this summer. I really want to go. We’ll see how logistics go. Have a great day all!
The mysterious man the Weeknd is at it again. According to Earmilk, there’s a new project coming from the Weeknd, entitled Thursday. I for one cannot wait. Remember his first mixtape? Simply excellent. This song has all of the amazing soul that his previous songs did, not to mention the simply astonishingly good production that periodically reminds the listener that this song is not acoustic. Check this out.
I think it’s time we took a break from mashups and posted an original song. Cliff Notez has a very soulful story to tell in this song and the beat to back it up, made by DJ Ryseup. My only problem with this song is how short it is; it just leaves me wanting more. The lyrics go from topic to topic very smoothly while sticking to the theme of his lifestory and the way people have always treated him. Many rappers have trouble linking their rhymes so well to the story they’re telling and meander from topic to topic without much forethought. Cliff Notez is not one of these rappers. Check out his well crafted song.
So on Saturday I finished finals and I thought I’d be able to blog. But then Sunday I had to move out and Monday I had a 9 to 5 and then Tuesday I had a 9 to 9 and you get the idea. Anyways, hopefully I’ll be able to keep up and blog with better commentary now. I’ve had about four awesome tracks to post since Saturday and if I’m productive I’m gonna post a bunch tomorrow. Today I’m introducing a DJ to continue my mashup dominated week with the talented 3lau.
Justin Blau aka DJ 3LAU is an electro “dubpop” DJ from Las Vegas who is currently enrolled at Washington University in St. Louis, MO…Drawing inspiration from many DJs, 3LAU uses his customized “APC 80″ set-up to provide a unique sound defining his style.
This track also fulfills your requisite Ellie track for the week. This song has to be one of the best tracks 3lau has made but definitely check out his SoundCloud, there are some great tracks there that you will probably see on coming Fridays.
Hadn’t heard from the Friendly Giant in awhile? Well this is probably why. He’s fixed up a bunch of his mashups and made five new ones to put into a full mashup album. All his old tracks are in a shiny 320 kbps format so check out the download. This album is high quality in more ways than fidelity. Here’s my favorite new track. Enjoy!
