Archive for the ‘Mashup Of The Week’ Category

I was on the search for a Mashup that I had never heard of before and maybe from a producer I have never checked out before. While on the search, I found a very interesting mashup that instantly caught my attention that I couldn’t resist checking out from a certain Mashup producer again. I am a huge fan of rock band Kiss and Mashup producer Fissunix takes one of my favorite live Kiss tracks in Shout It Out Loud and he combines it with the Martin Solveig & Dragonette track Hello to create this week’s mashup of the week Shout Hello. The first comment that I am going to make about the track is that it is infectious because I keep hitting repeat over and over again. I am absolutely amazed at how well the two tracks work well together as they flow so naturally. So with that being said, it passes my one rule that I have for Mashups which is that it must flow right and sound right. To check out more from Fissunix, just check out his website here and enjoy the dance rock classic Shout Hello below:

This past Mashup Of The Week entries have all been from artists and producers that I respect a lot in the biz because they all follow my one simple rule which talks about flow and consistency. That is also the case for this week’s Mashup Of The Week which comes to us from DJ Lobsterdust who is another Mashup artist that I respect. Like I said, some of the most fun mashups I have seen in the past are when the producers take songs you never thought would work and DJ Lobsterdust does his best with I Will Survivor. The track takes the music from Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive and mashes it up with Survivor’s vocals from Eye Of The Tiger. I was a little skeptical going into this, but as soon as I heard the way it played out, I was convinced. It definitely follows my one simple rule and if you didn’t know either song, you would think that this was the real track. For more from DJ Lobsterdust, check out his website here.

It’s Mashup Monday which can only mean one thing and that it’s time for the Mashup of the Week. I have one for you guys from an Mashup Producer that I respect and it just sounds crazy from the sound of it. What happens when you take Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe and you mix with the prince of darkness Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train? Well that must of have been the same question that Isosine must have been asking when he Frankensteined this one entitled Maybe Train. You all know that my one big and important rule of making Mashups is that they have to mesh well and sound like they belong together and Isosine achieves that with this one. The way he isolates Ozzy’s vocals to be able to match up with Carly Rae’s song is just mind blowing. If you like this one as much as I do wait until you check out some of his other work. To see and hear more from him, check him out on Facebook here and on Youtube here. Otherwise, check out the track below:

I figured since I dedicated the Cover Of The Week to Nick Menza that I would do the same again today with the Mashup Of The Week. So I found an artist that took a Megadeth track from the classic lineup era of Megadeth and mashed it up with another track. Now remember my one rule that I have for Mashups and that is they have to sound right due to the fact that it flows right. The featured Mashup Producer YITT took Megadeth’s Tornado Of Souls from the Rust In Peace album and he mashed it with the Foo Fighters track The Pretender to make his track Tornado Of Pretenders. Now when the track first started, I was a little worried about the flow of things, but as soon as the track kicked in I wasn’t so worried anymore. In fact, it’s actually an enjoyable Mashup where Dave Grohl is singing over the Megadeth track. Every now and again during the chorus he injects a little of teh Megadeth song into it. It’s a very cool Mashup and if you want to check out more from him, then click here. Otherwise check it out below:

For titling purposes for the blog, I had to come up with a title for this week’s Mashup Of The Week because the DJ didn’t. As you all know I am a big fan of Mashups and this week’s Mashup Of The Week is done by someone that I respect in the mashup game in Gothra. Gothra has done some really cool mashups over the past couple of years and I have a good one for everyone today. Today’s Mashup, I called it Da Muthaphukkin Last Resort (again only because it didn’t have a title before) and it combines Papa Roach’s Last Resort with Eazy-E’s Da Muthaphukkin Real. I really loved this mashup because it follows my one simple rule for mashups and that is that it flows very nicely and it works. Hearing how the chorus and the verses of Eazy’s track and how it fits nicely in there is great. It just works so well and if I didn’t know any better I would think this was the actual track. Check it out for yourself below:

I used to do this segment on my other blog and I had a heck of a lot of fun with it because Mashups are a very cool art form. Although do not be fooled by what you hear because it’s not very easy to do and pull off. My number one rule when I decide what is worthy of being the Mashup of the Week is whether it flows correctly and properly. The art of a mashup is taking two or more songs and combining them into one, but if it doesn’t flow right then it’s just trash. The first mashup I chose for this week is from a man that I deem a master of the art of Mashups in Wax Audio. Wax Audio is actually the artist that turned me onto Mashups in the first place and he does them right. For this week’s Mashup, he takes the legendary Bee Gees disco hit Stayin’ Alive and he combines it with AC/DC’s comeback hit after Bon Scott’s death Back In Black to create Stayin’ In Black. When you listen to this track, you will know exactly what I am talking about because Wax Audio makes it seem so easy and flawless. Check it out below and check out Wax Audio’s website here.
