Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. LXJanuary 18, 2013
It’s been a while folks. But today’s a Friday and I have mashups to share! You’ll find that several songs recur. If you didn’t know what songs mashup artists have been getting stuck in their heads lately, this should give you a pretty good idea. Let’s do this!
First off, Mashup-Germany. Of course, who else would I start with? This track is fast pop meets funk added to electronic sensibilities and a hip-hop / R&B song. It’s whimisical and catchy as anything. Enjoy!
Next up a simple and unassuming track from DJ 21azy. He combines Passion Pit with Phillip Phillips, mashing up vocals with guitar, which is one of the trickier things to combine. It’s well worth a listen. Check it out!
Monsieur Adi recently dropped a couple mashups (and sort of remixes, knowing him). This one is chilled out and beautiful. It is mostly driven by Goulding’s vocals, with atmospheric synths and hints of guitar backing it. Give it a listen!
DJ C-Squared put together this lovely mashup a couple days ago. I think the best way to describe the union of the progressive house synths and the various vocals (from Foxes and Krewella) is *satisfying*. Everything fits. Enjoy!
Here’s another arrangement of Foxes for you. This one is from the Jane Doze. Their version is a bit harder-hitting. I like the rage they add to back the vocals. Check it out!
Here’s one from Broomestix. Porter again, this time with Cobra Starship. This one is a pretty simple A+B mashup but it is catchy and fitting. Cobra Starship’s instrumentals are a step away from EDM anyway. Give it a listen!
DJ Kontrol hit a soft spot for me on this one. I’m not sure why, but I quite like Jeremih. Zedd’s track fits flawlessly in with Jeremih and the end result is pretty great. Enjoy it!
Here’s one from Dan Salva. Parts of it are a bit rough but the aggressive trap beat mixed with Ke$ha is hard to pass up. And I think that’s our President’s voice narrating his book in there… Check it out!
And finally, “Momentum”. This DJ Tuto track has been in rotation on my playlists for the last few weeks. It is crisp, clean, and ready to smash the dancefloor. It doesn’t hurt that I already love the track “Sparks” that he pulls the vocal hook from.
BONUS: But wait! One more song! A yearworm from Mashup-Germany! It’s pop! It’s progressive house! It’s R&B! It’s Britney! It’s epic! It’s Gangnam Style! Have a great weekend!
