Bounce (Ryon Lawford Remix) – Calvin Harris ft. Kelis

December 6, 2013

Kelis
I’ve been sitting on this for over a week now, and it’s about time I posted it, already! Opening with a moombahcore beat, this remix of Kelis and Calvin Harris quickly adds intensity with an techno/electro build. Ryon Lawford showcases Kelis’s vocals for a verse and then brings back the build which drops into an amazing bell toned synth breakdown. You have to get to that breakdown before you judge the song because that’s where it goes from pretty good to awesome. Check it out!

A Rapid Burst of EDM IV

August 16, 2013

UV makeup - perfect for a rave
Happy Friday folks! I hope everyone has had a great week and has great prospects for the weekend. If those prospects don’t include EDM, allow to rectify that oversight. Here we go.

3rd Prototype‘s remix of “Apollo” hits all the right notes for me. It has gorgeous, gentle vocals, backed by a lovely house synth progression with an electro break down. It’s a well rounded track that keeps your attention. If you like what you hear, you should know that 3rd Prototype recently dropped a new EP, “Victory“. Check it out

I’ve been enjoying SirensCeol‘s take on Avicii’s “Fade Into Darkness” for quite some time now. I thought it was time I share it with you all. Following the chord progressions of the original, SirensCeol gives this track a heightened energy and a fun techno edge that it didn’t have before. It’s as catchy as the original with a playfulness that really adds to it. Enjoy it!

Minnesota dropped this dubstep remix the other week, and it’s pretty much what we’ve come to expect from Minnesota. The track is well produced and engaging. The track is wobbly but sticks to a chord progression, not just indiscriminate dubstep. The song emphasizes the reggae roots of dubstep and the original song, which is always nice. Give it a listen!

Hyperbits remixed Carousel. How could I say no to that? Starting right off with Carousel’s signature sweet, smooth, and gentle vocals, Hyperbits backs with simple piano chords which blossom into a standard prog house rhythm and triumphal synth lines which build in turn to rippling electro house synth domination. It’s an awesome ride. Hold on tight. Check it out!

I haven’t blogged any moombahton in an age or seven. But Vice put this remix together and got me jamming to it. Maybe it’s the entrancing vocal line; maybe it’s the hopeful synths; maybe it’s the lovely chopping and screwing; maybe it’s just been too long. Whatever it is, this track is pretty damn great. Enjoy it.

Down On Life (Vice Remix) – Elliphant / Or from SoundCloud

PRFFTT & Svyable came out with a track featuring Crywolf two days ago, and it is gorgeous. With a sparse opening of atmospheric synths and piano chords, the vocals begin. They seem fairly standard until the beat drops and the emotion picks up. As they sing harder and more passionately the beat returns and builds to a frenzy as bass wobbles along with the vocal samples. The song needs a breather after that epic-ness but they soon return to it. Check this song out!

Gazzo and Kalkutta teamed up to do a number on Miley Cyrus’s latest hit. I watched the original video with a sense of “meh”. That is something I absolutely cannot say about this remix. This remix is amazing. First they back her vocals with a synth I adore, stark and beautiful. This synth broadens and flattens out for the chorus and drops into a holding pattern in order for a crunchier electro house synth to come to the fore, leaving Miley’s vocals suspended and pulsing. This song is the song I want to dance to at every party. Enjoy it and have an awesome weekend.

Billy The Gent, Dillon Francis & Kito ft. Reija Lee – Bass of Hearts (5 & A Dime Bootleg)

January 24, 2013

And here we have a bit of Moombahton! We’ve heard about 5 & A Dime before on this site, but I must say that this is my favorite 5&AD track so far. I love moombahton, and I think it deserves far more recognition than it gets. Dillon Francis is one of the masters, and this mashup is pretty spot on; if I didn’t know the original tunes than I probably wouldn’t be able to tell it was a mashup at all. Check it out!

Fear Not the Dubstep XXXV

March 15, 2012


Happy Thursday folks! Have some dubstep.

Andrix is a sixteen year old girl from Norway who makes massive sound. I’m rather jealous that a sixteen year old has such talent, but I’m certainly enjoying it. This bass and eventual 8bit section is just so dirty! Check it out!

Sunsets (Andrix Remix) – Borgore / Or from HulkShare

Here’s another one from SubVibe. This one starts with an almost moombahton beat and then swiftly pulls in some progressive house synths. If you’re wondering where the dubstep comes in, just wait for it. You can get the whole EP here. Give it a listen.

Gangsters – SubVibe / Or from HulkShare

Singer Silver Medallion and producer Feature Cuts team up to make this dramatic track, the first in a planned project. I look forward to hearing more of the duo. Enjoy!

Drop Out, Kiss Girls – Silver Medallion & Feature Cuts / Or from HulkShare

Combining Nero, Forever Kid, and Kill the Noise, N3AKO makes a fun and highly enjoyable track. This track builds until it reaches a high energy peak that you can dance to or just nod your head. Check it out!

Must Be Dying – N3AKO / Or from HulkShare

Acetronik must really prefer mashups to remixes, because “Acetronik vs. Smash Mouth” doesn’t really imply a remix. Now I was initially resistant to the idea of this remix because this track is pretty sacrosanct to me. But if I enjoy it for what it is, namely a wobbly bass heavy track sampling some nostalgia, I really like it. Give it a listen and decide for your self.

All Star – Acetronik vs. Smash Mouth / Or from HulkShare

And to make sure you’re ready for mashups tomorrow, I thought I’d include a new track from No Pets Allowed. It samples “Slam the Door”, which I included (a remix of) two weeks ago in the dubstep post. Enjoy!

Since You Slammed The Door – No Pets Allowed / Or from HulkShare

BONUS: Here’s a mashup of a ton (if not all) of Skrillex’s songs. When they hit that first chorus, I understood why they call it rage.

Suddenly Mashups. Everywhere. XXXV

October 24, 2011


OK, so I realize it’s Monday not Friday. But Midterm Syndrome (or MS for short, it’s not like that acronym is used for anything else…) killed any chance of blogging for almost a week, so I’m posting mashups anyway. Think of it as a bonus. A mashup Monday post, if you will. I’m celebrating being done with midterms! If you’re not done yet, here’s some motivational music.

First of all, I went through a huge Paramore phase, so I really like this one. The Catalina Rhyme Mixers must enjoy Paramore, because Hayley’s vocals are really featured and shine through on this track with an excellent progressive house background. Also. If you haven’t checked out their mashup album Mash-Stache yet, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. Check it out.

D.veloped has some serious skills; the title of this track is entirely merited. I’m not entirely sure how he keeps all the elements he’s working with straight, but he makes it work. This is a must listen to track. Do it. Now. And enjoy it.

My Dangerously Melodic Anthem – D.veloped / Or from Mediafire

Kap Slap has been gone for a month or so, so I stopped checking for new content. My loss. This track is awesome. I love what he’s done with the “Yeahs” starting at 1:44. Beautiful use of autotune. I could listen to that section over and over again (and I have). Give it a listen.

Chris Brown’s Temper (Rihanna x Axwell & Dirty South x Temper Trap) – Kap Slap / Or from Mediafire

This mashup is so cool. I remember when all mashups were either A+B or sounded like a DJ had ADD (that would be you, Girl Talk). But these days, DJs are doing incredible things with production. OMGosh (I’m rather put out that I can’t find an artist page…) slowly builds a tender and strange instrumental that remixes “All Things Go” even as it mashes it up with some Kanye vocals. At the same time it evokes the autotune experimentation that Kanye has explored. [Of course if OMGosh is just mashing up Kanye with someone else’s remix, someone should tell me. But it sounds great.] Spotted on Earmilk. Check it out.

Homecoming (Mashup by OMGosh) – Kanye West / Or from Mediafire

I feel like I posted way too many mashups of these songs last week, so here’s one mashup of the two together. Both have stellar hooks. And now Basic Physics has put them together as one. It’s a match made in pop heaven. Enjoy!

Without Jagger (Maroon 5 // Usher // David Guetta) – Basic Physics / Or from Mediafire

You all been missing some Moombahton? Or have you been bored by Moombahton lately? DOSVEC turns over one of the slickest Moombahton tracks I’ve heard in a mashup. It’s got an almost ominous sound to it. No ominous vocals but you could totally spin this for a Halloween party. I highly recommend giving this track a listen.

Whos Afraid of Encore (Jay-Z vs Claude VonStroke (Mud Mix)) – DOSVEC / Or from Mediafire

Mashup-Germany put out his three CD Greatest Hits compilation the other day. I had forgotten how many of my favorite mashups were made by him. So here’s his most recent track. It’s pretty, sweet, and tinged with sadness. Stilller has a real talent for evoking a mood with his music. Check it out.

Who knew someone like you… – Mashup-Germany / Or from Mediafire

BONUS: Not to make this sappy or anything, but this mashup makes me think of my girlfriend. No not because of the lyrics. Because the show we watch religiously together is Community (in which Childish Gambino acts) and we love “Manners”. So of course I had to post DJ 21azy‘s mashup of the two. The music blogs all seem to agree that this is a great mashup but has way too abrupt of an ending. So I gave it a fade out. All better. Enjoy!

Sliding Scale – Doc Adam

October 5, 2011


So I haven’t posted much Moombahton in awhile and I thought I’d fix that. So I go where I usually go when looking for good Moombahton, Moombah-Thong. I found this lovely gem by Doc Adam inside a compilation entitled Moombahluv Volume One. As the title suggests, this is not exactly pure Moombahton (if such a thing exists); instead it follows the trend of “luvstep” in that it is a softer, more trance-y version of its parent genre. I find it really smooth and easy to listen to, if not to categorize. Check it out.

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.
