I love a mash-up, man. I can listen to all kinds of crap bands if they're mixed just right -- and it's not an ironic hipster "hey, dig me digging this band" thing, either.
Here's some of the best recent mashups I found last night, sitting here in the dark in a dirty t-shirt and just looping aroiund the Web like a marble in an empty bathtub:
From The Best of Bootie, 2006:
A plus D – Sexy Peek-A-Boo (Justin Timberlake vs. Siouxsie & the Banshees)
DJ Moule – Black Sabotage (Beastie Boys vs. Led Zeppelin)
Disfunctional DJ -- You're the One That I Want In the Next Episode (Snoop Dogg vs. Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta)
From CultureBully's Favorite Mash-Ups, 2006:
DJ BC -- Free Adidas (Tom Petty vs. Run DMC)
A plus D – Beethoven's Fifth Gold Digger (Kanye West vs. Beethoven vs. Walter Murphy)
Soulwax is, in my mind, the greatest bunch of mashup artists in the world -- their latest album, Nite Versions is a mashup of ITSELF, a remix of previous Soulwax work that is even better than the original stuff. Here's a video of a previous incarnation of one my favorite songs:
Happy Friday, folks.
