Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXIV

July 15, 2011

Happy Friday folks! I’m on the road today so here’s the first installment of pre-written posts. Since I didn’t have as much time as usual you only get four songs instead of the usual seven. But they’re all quality. It’s a day for mashups, so mashups you shall have.

First off, here’s a sweet track that Mashup-Germany put together. He’s never made a purely instrumental track before. I’d say he succeeded quite admirably. The saxophone really gets rid of any need for vocals. It wails harder than most vocalists. I found this a novelty as well as pleasant track to listen to. Check it out.

Cecil Otter and Swiss Andy have put together a great concept project entitled Wugazi. The Wu Tang Clan meets Fugazi’s instrumental album. Many rejoice. This track, for instance, fits together into a smooth union that you cant help but bob your head to. I first spotted this over on Pigeons and Planes. Listen to this.

Honestly, since I don’t know the original Britney song, and don’t feel like taking the time to listen to it, I couldn’t tell you is this wasn’t just a Britney song featuring Eric Saade. But I trust Earmilk, and Robin Skouteris if they tell me that this is a mashup. It’s one of those mashups that makes you realize how similar pop is. Sharing melodic hooks makes this mashup an easy mix. Listen for yourself.

Kap Slap‘s new album is filled with primo mashups. This one might be favorite. I love Miike Snow’s “Silvia” and that’s a great start. Using one of the best drops from that song, Kap Slap works Britney’s hook into Swizz Beat’s and then juxtaposes “Till the World Ends” with “ Save the World”. Clever. And enjoyable. Try it out.
