Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. LXIVMay 4, 2013
Mashup-Germany starts strong with a combination of Macklemore and “Crocodile Rock” and doesn’t get any weaker. Macklemore had a stellar instrumental for “Can’t Hold Us” and Mashup-Germany obviously had fun adding verse after verse to it. Check it out!
How could I ignore a mashup of “Chumbawamba”? The Catalina Rhyme Mixers knew I couldn’t. They also knew that adding “Gangnam Style” would make it even more irresistible. They don’t stop there, but don’t take my word for it. Give it a listen!
I’m new to Fatwave, but every track of theirs that I’ve heard is great. It’s been awhile since I’ve really gotten into “We Found Love” but this brings it all back like it was only two years ago. Enjoy it.
I like funky mashups and DJ Schmolli made one last month. Featuring Justin Timberlake’s signature song at the moment, Schmolli exploits the funky rhythm of his vocals and gives it more a more appropriate backing. Give it a listen!
3lau masterfully merges more than half a dozen songs to make this one. The progressive house build drops into an exciting festival track that sounds like a call to arms. This militant air is dropped and a vulnerable side is emphasized with practically acapella airy vocals. The contrasts in this song are great. Enjoy them.
Doodle Monster brings “Radioactive” an intense dubstep sound by combining it with the sound of Spektrem. The melodramatic vocals of “Radioactive” match the the intensity of “Dirtybuzz” in a very satisfying way. Check it out!
Troika has some amazing mashups out there. This is one of the simpler ones but its simplicity has its own appeal. Brostep meets popstep in a very enjoyable union. This is dubstep at its most accessible. Give it a listen.
DJ Ellipsis streamlines these songs into a single track so tight it’s hard to remember that they were once separate. The bass and 808s makes this the most aggressive I have ever heard “Flashback”. This track is hands down amazing. Enjoy.
BONUS: And here’s DJ Bahler‘s track which inspired Change‘s track above. I really like the eerie sound that Bahler emphasizes out of Phoenix’s instrumental. It’s hard to highlight much more than vignettes of this mashup because of the sheer number of songs in it, but most are great and they are all good. Enjoy it and have a great weekend!
