Like a G6 Remixes

Jesse James vs DJ Philistine vs Disco Fries vs Basic Physics

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months (and it’d have to be a rock without access to the internet or mainstream radio), you’ll have been exposed to Far East Movement’s “Like a G6“. Love it or hate it, well, that doesn’t matter – it’s topped charts everywhere. Personally, when I first listened to it (unaware of the hit it was to become), I thought it was catchy enough, but it was relatively uninspiring, and grew old after a few listens. It was banished to my music library wasteland that is “three stars”. Well, it become a hit, and with any huge hit, comes a shitload of remixes […]

Chiddy Bang featured on Need for Speed

Opposite of Adults in Hot Pursuit!

This may be old news to you Chiddy Bang fans, but damn did I get excited when I heard them on the television. Chiddy Bang was recently featured on a Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit commercial. The commercial features Chiddy’s relatively known remix of MGMT’s “Kids”, appropriately titled “Opposite of Adults.”

The videogame clip wasn’t all that impressive considering just the game, but hearing Chiddy over the clip got me going – it’s nice to see someone you’ve supported over the last year actually get some notoriety. I’ve said this in many past posts on Chiddy, these guys have so much potential, I just hope they keep up with […]

The Next Best Thing to Pretty Lights

Diamonds and Glass EP by Archnemesis

Tell me this doesn’t sound like something Derek Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights would do. It sounds so damn Pretty Lights that I was a little skeptical that it may be, at first. There are, however, a few minor differences.

Archnemesis’ Diamonds and Glass EP is a rich sampled set of songs. One of the main differences that set them apart from PL is their use of pop hip-hop samples. You see this a lot in sampling artists, but as much as Pretty Lights samples, he usually doesn’t go with the mainstream hip-hop. I can’t say I prefer one over the other, but the next difference is what sets Archnemesis just a slot below PL […]

C.R.E.A.M Theme (The Hood Internet Mashup)

- Wu-Tang Clan vs Javelin -

C.R.E.A.M may not have been the most original track to mash, but Javelin’s “Intervales Theme” is one fun beat for the Wu Tang flow. It sure can’t beat the original, but I love hearing a new vibe to a long loved classic.

Have fun with this and make sure to check out more Hood Internet’s work, they’ve whipped up some other fine mashes.

Fool’s Gold vs NASA – Surprise Gift (team9 mashup)

featuring Kanye West, Santigold & Lykke Li

A few months back I ran into this mashup by team9 on Racecar Spacecar, and my first thoughts were “this dude sounds like Kanye” (I actually commented in the post). I assumed since the track featured N.A.S.A, it was just some dude that sounded a hell of a lot like Kanye. But I knew I must’ve been mistaken, so I digged around a little.

Apparently, team9 & Stereogum have been teaming up for the past couple of years to create a mashup of that year’s hit tracks. In 2009, they mashup “Surprise Hotel” by Fool’s Gold with N.A.S.A’s “Gift”, which features… you guessed it, Kanye West.

Enjoy this mashup packed with many good musicians. Also make sure to lookout for the 2010 set, which may drop soon – the 2009 dropped around this time last year – depending on if they release one this year.

Reggae Wayne vs. Electro Weezy

Stunnin' with The Wailers, Pretty Lights & Phoenix

After putting two Busta Rhymes “Dangerous” remixes against each other, I knew I had enough remixes stockpiled to do another. I’ve never been a Lil’ Wayne fan, but mash him up with some of the best and ya can’t hate on something so gooood.

It may’ve taken Bob Marley & Pretty Lights to get me listening to him, but damn does Weezy flow well to these. I’m not gonna say which I like better, yet, but both bring out a different side to him – one for smokin’, one for ragin’ – well, I guess both are good for either, but you know what I mean. If you want me to tell ya my favorite of the two, post in the comments below and I may just do that.

Up From Low (Busta Remix), Originally by Rench

Country gone Electronic?.. well, kinda/not really.

My favorite Alt Rock groups usually incorporate electronic instrumentals, but this is my first Country singer with an electro remix that I liked. I honestly couldn’t tell that Rench’s original, “Up From Low”, was a Country song, though I doubt most can. His voice actually reminds me of Damon Albarn’s of Gorillaz & Blur, probably because the mix of a detached, tripped-out vocalist with electro instrumentals was pretty much perfected by the guy.

As for what Busta has given to Rench’s vocals, he’s done a job on the original and has created something I’m sure Rench would never have imagined. I wouldn’t consider this dubstep, but it definitely has […]

Boombox (Datsik Remix) by Bassnectar

This is some eerie shit!

I feel like I have a dubstep addiction. For the last month or so we’ve been flooded with dubstep, remixes or a combination of the two. Not that I’m sick of it, but we’ve got so much other shit in our backlog and somehow dubstep keeps floating to the top.

Well, at the very top of the list is Datsik’s remix of “Boombox”, originally by Bassnectar. My first impression was that it was just another industrial grimer that went off on those dubstep tangents I […]

The Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby (4centers Remixxx)

A tribute to John Lennon

Last night I went to First Avenue in Minneapolis and saw a group cover John Lennon for the memorial of his death 30 years ago. It was a little more lively than I thought a bunch of 60 year olds would be, but it was a hell of a time.

So I decided to do a little tribute myself by collecting the best Mixes & Mashes of his work with The Beatles, as well as his solo work. Until that’s complete, here’s one of the best dubstep remixes I’ve ever heard, Beatles or otherwise […]

Songs from Louie’s Season 1 Finale

Let's find this shit!

I first caught Louis C.K. on his HBO show, Lucky Louie, when it debuted back in ’06. It wasn’t my favorite show to hit HBO, but the two main characters, Louie C.K. & Pamela Adlon (now on Californication), made a good match. The show was canceled after its first season, but was picked up by FX last year.

The show was revamped for FX, straying away from the sitcom (thank god) and going for a more realistic look at the sarcastic downfalls of a comedian – not far off from Curb. The backstory also changed with Louie as a newly divorced father of two young girls.

The first season’s finale wrapped up in September and caught my attention for this article, not just for the story, but more for the music that accompanied it. Two songs feature that caught my attention […]
