Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXV

July 29, 2011


Happy Friday folks. TGIF, right? I’ve been falling more and more for Katy Perry lately. Maybe I’m just hopping on the party bus. But she’s like an (I’m not sure I want to say classier but maybe:) upgraded Ke$ha. Thus this mashup Friday, I’m going to post two “TGIF” mashups. Hope you don’t mind!

This song is just such a party anthem… “It’s a blacked out blur, but I’m pretty sure it rules.” Yeah that sounds about right. This first Katy mashup is enhanced with the presence of the electronic-ly awesome Mord Fustang. The early rave feel to his track brings out the high energy underground party feel that this pop song can feed off of. The Catalina Rhyme Mixers really hit a home run on this one. I’m so onboard. Check it out.

Now let’s take it down a notch. Remember Wugazi? This track has gotten a lot more acclaim than my favorite from two weeks ago. It is worthy of all the acclaim, though. The track is relaxed and matter of fact, bringing an almost mournful (but not too sad) sound to the classic Wu-Tang. Try it on for size!

Keeping with the lower key chill vibe, here’s the Hood Internet‘s latest mashup offering. I’m digging the old Genesis in this track. It really works with this rather monosyllabic rap(?) song. Together it’s a purposefully disjointed yet musically attractive track. Enjoy.

This track quickly pulls the mood of the last two songs into something more whimsical with the aid of Eminem. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the sheer amount of music that Mashup-Germany puts out, not that I’m complaining (it’s always great). This one might sound rather simple but look at everyone who’s in it: Lloyd ft Lil Wayne & Andre 3000 vs. Doobie Brothers vs. LaBelle vs. Eminem vs. Usher feat. Pitbull vs. David Guetta feat. Snoop Dogg vs. S Club 7 vs. Franz Ferdinand vs. Donna Summer. Crazy right? Check it out!

Jimi Needles is back with another fabulous mashup to share around. Enjoy a little Michael sound with a stronger voice. Definitely a party sound.

Ok, I know you were starting to worry that I wouldn’t feed you some Ellie Goulding, but fear not, for here it is. And this Ellie is prepared by the finest of DJs, the White Panda. The mood of this instrumental fits her vocals far more than many other DJs have arranged and is altogether satisfying. Enjoy.

Alright now let’s keep the pace going up. With this intense Beetroots track, DJ Y alias JY gives “Alors on danse” an amazing new urgency to it. I was bored of that song as soon as it was out. Now I’m impressed with this DJ’s work on it. Check it out!

Bloody Stromae [The Bloody Beetroots vs. Stromae vs. The Whip vs. Refused vs. Eskimos & Egypt] – DJ Y alias JY / Or from Mediafire

I bet you thought that was it. But I have more to play for you, and I figured you wouldn’t complain about another sweet song added. Plus I already told you I had another “TGIF” for you. Dan Mei and Marc Johnce bring this track home in an amazingly smooth fashion, as usual. Have a great weekend everyone!

BONUS: In honor of the life of Amy Winehouse, Mashup-Germany reworked a mashup by amoraboy.

Fear Not the Dubstep XVI

July 28, 2011


Happy Thursday! It’s a day of wobs and rages. My poor iPhone has been announced dead after a week of furious rice treatments. In its honor we will raise our bass and blow our speakers. Never forget. It will be remembered always and its sacrifice will not be for nothing. For it has made way for a replacement iPhone that has not died while being waterboarded. Huzzah!

First off an excellent dubstep remix by the German DJ Chaikov. If you haven’t yet, check out the post on him I did a couple of days ago. It’s another remix of “Unleash the Fucking Dada” but this version includes all the wobs and bass you could ask for. Enjoy!

Not a lot needs to be said about this one. It’s Calvin Harris’ smoothness astride Nero’s bass. It’s a beautiful union of awesomeness. Check it out.

Feel So Close (Nero Remix) – Calvin Harris / Or from Mediafire

Remember “It’s a Fine Day”? Well it’s back and rebooted for bass drop that follows the hook. Omega brings it together in a big way. Enjoy the bass!

SoniXx is back and ripping it up with the help of Kaskade’s beautiful progressive house synths. Enjoy.

Everyone see Harry Potter by now? I wasn’t impressed by it terribly. But I was pretty impressed with this song by Virtual Boy. 8-bit, or perhaps 16-bit dubstep is pretty sweet. Check it out!

Hedwig’s Theme (Virtual Boy Dubstep Remix) – Harry Potter / Or from Mediafire

So I heard Ke$ha doesn’t listen to her own music because it’s too sleazy. Sounds right to me. Enjoy the sleaze and filth that Wick-it adds.

Remember this one? Candyland brought it back to give you something fresh to turn up. Have a great Thursday all!

Do It All Again (Prod. by The Two Friends) – Gabriel Stark

July 27, 2011


Remember the Friendly Giant? We at Paper Mash are big fans of his work in the field of mashups. He recently sent me an email to update us on his current projects.

I’ve recently taken a break from making mashups as The Friendly Giant in order to team up with my friend Matt Halper to make sample-based hip-hop beats. We bought Pro Tools at the beginning of this summer right after we graduated high school together and have been working extremely hard to make exciting and unique beats. Our first beat uses Matt and Kim’s “Daylight” which we chopped up to give it a whole new spin. We sent the finished beat to Gabriel Stark who did an amazing job adding in verses and a catchy chorus to make the track complete.

Keeping in line with TFG’s handle, these two go by The Two Friends. Their production starts out pretty simple, with few changes, but quickly works into something completely unique. Gabriel Stark‘s verses ground the song, leaving a polished finished product. Check it out.

Tongue Tied (Video) – GROUPLOVE

July 27, 2011


I don’t usually post videos because I am way more sound oriented than visually. But I have a soft spot in my heart for GROUPLOVE. Ever since I first heard Captain Cuts’ remix of “Colours” I’ve been smitten. So when this turned up in my email I just had to share. So I don’t think that’s what I’d see if I ate a funny brownie but I guess it could have been super lucid, super fast acting acid brownies. Also, why did he take his shirt off? Obviously I’m don’t get the whole visual media, but the music is good.

PS Check out Captain Cuts’ two new remixes!

Deliverance (Chaikov Moombahton Bootleg) – Bubba Sparxxx

July 26, 2011


Time for a little more Moombahton. To that end, meet Chaikov. He’s a DJ from Russia Germany, here to share some well worked remixes with you. This song swells very easily into the basic sound of a classic Moombahton track using subtle elements from “Deliverance”. Check it out.

The Life Sketches EP – Mecca:83

July 25, 2011


Mecca:83 (Evan Jones) also known as the UK artist Rise sent me a slick EP last week. Unfortunately I was just heading out of town and couldn’t include it but now that I’m home to the land of wi-fi once more, I can give it some attention. Jones’ tracks are smooth mostly intrumental tracks on this EP with snippets of talk and rap that echo in the dub style. The EP is unbelievably relaxed, making it easy to imagine making up the ambiance of some expensive club with classy looking people talking quietly over drinks. Check out these two songs that show some of the range in this chill EP and then download it here.

Rave N Roll On The Floor – Kap Slap

July 22, 2011


Happy Friday! I’m afraid I’m still without wi-fi. Enjoy this mashup in place of a full mashup post. Kap Slap‘s mashup album is still pleasing me so here’s another track from it. You just have to love it, something so rave-y and club-y with a little dose of Skrillex. Enjoy the weekend, Monday I should be back to normal posting.
