Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. LVIJuly 27, 2012
You know what I haven’t done in far too long? That’s right! Blogged mashups. It’s been almost two months! That’s far too long in my opinion. So ready or not here come the mashups. And you know what the long wait means right? I’ve been accumulating quite a few mashups and so I’ve got the creme de la creme for you in this post. Ready? Here we go.
How better to start than with the Lion King opening? I know this is ancient but it is hysterical and worth a rehash for anyone who hasn’t heard it. djDOYOU (now going by SmithAgentSmith) has a full album of Disney mashups which are fun but this is definitely the best of them. Also the video is perfect, and I usually don’t say that, so consider checking it out. Give it a listen!
The Two Friends have been enjoying quite some success and recently put their first single on iTunes. To celebrate they dropped several excellent mashups and this is my favorite. Who knew that Third Eye Blind would match Matisyahu so flawlessly. This is a must-hear track. Check it out.
Now let’s let “Starships” get a progressive house rerub. 3lau just released his latest mashup album and it is excellent. This might be my favorite track on the album. Catchy and dance-y, 3lau just can’t go wrong. Enjoy!
Mighty Mike has been a favorite mashup artist of mine for ages, and this mashup just reinforces that. It’s weird and fun and fits strangely well. Men At Work and M83… Huh. Give it a listen and I promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
I can’t go two months without mashups without posting a track from Jimi Needles. The king of funky mashups does it again with this attitude filled rendition of “Single Ladies”. Check it out!
San Dalva is a new group to me, submitted via email. With this track Dalva proves that they deserve to be heard by all. “Rack City” has never sounded so hardcore. Enjoy.
I’ve heard a lot of remixes of “Wide Awake” and I’ve heard some amazing versions of it. This one of those amazing ones. Madeon can make anything sound epic and TeeTs makes sure that this is one of those. This track feels epic now which is not a term easily applied to Katy Perry. Give it a listen.
Mashup-Germany has put out a ton of mashups in the last two months that deserve a listen or three, but we’ll start with this one. Basing a track around Blink 182 is a good start in my book, and adding current pop music just seems to make sense. Check it out.
Now I have to end on a dramatic note, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard a mashup quite as dramatic as this. Dan Mei combines Marilyn Manson with Nightwish in a mashup that is as over the top as it is good. Enjoy it and have a great weekend!
