Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXXII, Part II

September 30, 2011


But wait there’s more!
On a very special episode of Paper Mash Music….
Surprise!!
I couldn’t decide which to start with so I put all of them here. I felt bad about lack of mashups last week so I thought I’d fix that with a double feature. Ready? It’s still Friday, despite the fact that I have to work tonight (grumble, grumble, money, swag). So here we go!

More Mashup-Germany today! This track is just awesome. Pop, dutch house, reggae, and Vanilla Ice all together? Definitely worth a listen.

It got to be bum – Mashup-Germany / Or from Mediafire

Doug Bogan is taking a stab at pulling Moombahton into the pop world. And he does a pretty good job. It’s not really Moombahton any more but it’s awesome, and that’s what mashups are all about. Check it out.

Moombology – Doug Bogan / Or from Mediafire

Yup. Sex Ray Vision does mashups too. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Enjoy a very flippant sounding Shady.

Good Vibrations Without Me – Sex Ray Vision / Or from Mediafire

I’m digging any sample of “Top of the World”, such a good song. 3lau works in a plethora of songs turning this into a pop-packed, star-studded track. Enjoy!

Yacht Week In America – 3lau / Or from Mediafire

Seriously I just cannot keep up with DOSVEC. I have about four of his tracks on the queue to post. It’s ridiculous. This one’s a little slower with some soulful background to the rapping, not to mention some dubstepped grumbling in the distance. Check it out!

Fresh Leone (Flo Rida & Lil Wayne vs Mt Eden) – DOSVEC / Or from Mediafire

Ready for another from the vaults? Mark J (I think that’s the right DJ…) made this one back in the day when “Who Let the Dogs Out” was popular. Oh yeah. It’s a fun one. You can hear for yourself.

Brimful of Dogs – (Cornershop vs. Baha Men) – Mark J / Or from Mediafire

Guess what. More “Levels”! Loving the Madhouse addition of “No Hands”. Waka! Have a great weekend you all!

No Levels (Avicii vs. Waka Flocka) [MadHouse Mashup] – Solow & Zalem Hest / Or from Mediafire

Apparently that last track is under a cloud. DJ abSRD says that he made this mashup first. I can’t tell who made it first since both tracks say they were posted 6 months ago (as of 2/1/12) on SoundCloud. Also they’re not identical. abSRD’s version pulls content from other songs as well. They could have both just chosen the same tracks to work with. Lord knows those tracks were popular enough, I wouldn’t be surprised. Decide for yourselves.

Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXXII, Part I

September 30, 2011


Well I have a surprise for you all to help you celebrate this Friday. Can you guess what it is? I hinted in the title… Oh you’ll figure it out in a bit, don’t be too hard on yourself. Happy Friday y’all! A big thanks to The Burning Ear for supplying many of these mashups in their Mashup roundup. OK, mashup time!

Here’s another spin of the hottest beat of the summer, “Levels”. Mashup-Germany gives his mashup a different direction by using a remix of the original leaked sample from Avicii that eventually turned into “Levels”. Well done. Check this out!

Leveled Without You – Mashup-Germany / Or from Mediafire

3lau‘s blown up in a big way and I for one am very pleased. His knack for drawing tons of songs into one comes with great responsibility to make tons of songs. Here’s another awesome track from him drawing mainly upon female pop tracks. Enjoy!

Girls Who Save The World (Alesso Feat. Adele, Britney, SHM, Dragonette, Nadia) – 3lau / Or from Mediafire

The Hood Internet‘s niche seems to be rap on indie tracks. I like this niche. Here’s another successful track from them. The chorus makes the whole song feel balanced when the rap without may feel a little one note. Try it out for yourself.

World Of Swimsuits (The Cool Kids vs Ford And Lopatin) – the Hood Internet / Or from Mediafire

DOSVEC supplies another driving song for you. I guarantee you’ve never heard Kelis like this before. The bass is unbelievably repetitive yet strangely addictive. I’m hooked. You? My one quibble is the drop of all sound in the middle. A little too odd for me. But the rest of the track is pure gold. Enjoy.

Stupid Milkshake (Kelis vs Wallpaper) – DOSVEC / Or from Mediafire

All right, let’s back off the bass for a bit. Here’s a slick little progressive house number from ZHU. Beltek supplies the length for the song (7 and a half minutes) and Calvin Harris provides a hook in the form of his great vocals. Check it out!

Flashback to ZHU’s Eclipse (Beltek vs. Calvin Harris) – ZHU / Or from Mediafire

Let’s follow that with a mashup using a very familiar instrumental for less familiar version of another familiar song. We’re all familiar here right? Inspired Flight is really good at remixing not just original work. Enjoy.

Wonderwall Remix – Inspired Flight / Or from Mediafire

The White Panda has more for you. And man is it good. Not much else to say other than that yet again, they’ve knocked one out of the park. Have a great Friday!

Mo Free Mo Fallin’ – the White Panda / Or from Mediafire

Slaughter House (TC Remix) – Joker

September 29, 2011


So I’m pretty sick. Here’s a cool song. Remix by TC. Spotted on Earmilk. Enjoy.

Somebody That I Used To Know (Hannes Fischer Remix) – Gotye Feat. Kimbra

September 28, 2011


A bit different from many of the remixes I post, this one is quiet and almost secretive sounding. The background creeps about furtively and the vocals are quiet and accusative. It’s beautiful. And long. But Kimbra’s vocals shine through so listen to at least 3:35. Unlike the original of this song (which is also gorgeous), Hannes Fischer‘s remix never has the loud resolving harmonies. Instead it stays quietly angry. Perhaps it’s a little more passive aggressive. It’s awesome though, so check it out.

Chicago – Lucy Wainwright Roche

September 27, 2011


I have been busy busy busy! I’m sorry there was no mashups post this past week. It will happen this week. I’ve just been all over the place. I am procrastinating on some homework right now to post this. But it will make me feel better and that’s what counts. One of the places I was the other day was seeing Lucy Wainwright Roche give a concert. If you don’t know where she’s coming from, here’s a quick rundown: her mother is Suzzy Roche of the Roches, her father is Loudon Wainwright III, and her brother is Rufus Wainwright. Most of her family are musicians of some sort. She is a folk artist who has toured with such names as the Indigo Girls, Girlyman, and Brandi Carlile. I’ve seen her play in Oberlin at least four times. Her shows are always unbelievably fun. Aside from the music (which I’ll get to) her shows inevitably include fun, silly, and awkward anecdotes that keep me laughing almost as much as listening. She loves it when crowds are willing to engage with her, which makes the atmosphere of the show almost that of friends hanging out. Her music is simple (several times she has made jokes that she wrote a song too hard for her to play on guitar) but beautiful. Her vocals are overwhelmingly powerful in person. After the show I asked if I could blog a song of hers and she said, yeah, of course. If this comes up on your Google Alerts and you didn’t mean “free download” when you said “blog” then do tell me, Lucy! This song is one of my favorites. None of her recordings quite capture the power of her vocal presence that dominates her performance in person. But this one is gorgeous and always makes me a little homesick. If you want a chance to hear her vocals at full power, check out her tour schedule. She came out with an album last year entitled, “Lucy” which is available on iTunes, Amazon, and BandCamp. Check it out.

Chicago – Lucy Wainwright Roche

BONUS: I also wanted to post her version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” but didn’t want to put up multiple tracks up so here’s a stream-only version. Enjoy!

Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The People Cover) – Cris Cab

September 21, 2011


I fell for “Pumped Up Kicks” last year. After numerous remixes and mashups, I still preferred the original. But then I heard this. Cris Cab covers Foster the People in style. Using clean and minimalistic reggae instrumentation, he changes the whole attitude of the song. Clean is a really key word for this cover. The production is spotless and his vocals are clear and sweet. Now that I can really hear the lyrics, I realize how violent this song is. I never knew. But this version is unstoppably beautiful. Spotted on Decently Dope. I know you’ll enjoy this one.
