Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXXI

September 16, 2011


Happy Friday! Now it’s time to party and I have just the mashups to get you started on that. Ready? Good.

First off it’s time to hear from the Hood Internet. This is the best song I think they’ve put out in a month or so. It’s got a great concept and a great follow through. Taio’s vocal hooks blend seamlessly with the People’s frantic synth lines. So good. Give it a listen.

I have a soft spot for “Levels” and a soft spot for Spanish songs. Come to think of it I also have a soft spot for the Friendly Giant; he’s just so friendly, right? This track really gets you bouncing. It’s rather cold here right now (52F!) so singing about the beach feels a little out of place, but hey, viva la summer! Enjoy!

Have another track from Yoni. It’s totally worth it. Moving from summer to winter here, we still manage to have awesome music, and that’s really what counts, right? Weezy asks us the eternal question, what is a goon to goblin, to a lovely understated electronic beat which shapeshifts to fit multiple artists. Check it out.

I know, I know, another “Rolling in the Deep” mashup. But give UpTill a chance; this track really rocks. However I promise no more “Rolling in the Deep” variants from now on. However the “Pressure” addition really makes this one a lot more interesting. New vocals keep it fresh. Give it a try.

Here’s one from the vaults. A plus D gives Pitbull an electric slide makeover and it totally works. Funny how songs sort of get recycled every year or so. For instance if you replaced the word “shake” with “shots” you have a different song. Meh. This song is fun and a great party starter under the right conditions. Enjoy.

I haven’t heard “Owner of a Lonely Heart” in quite some time, but DJ Y alias JY brings it back in true style. I bet you could fit “Snakes on a Plane” into this track as well but you sure don’t need to. This track is unbelievably smooth which is a big deal with a rock mashup. Check it out.

The White Panda
is back better than ever. This is not a dance song. This is a late night cruising song. I love when they change up their songs. The production is stellar as usual and it just sounds good. The choice of mixing Kanye with M83 more electronic sound is great because Kanye has a long history of toying with electronica and his vocals just fit. Have an awesome weekend and enjoy!
