Mashup Monday – We're back again with some of the freshest mashes to start your week off right. These are the mashes that are worth hearing, so stop your searching and instead settle down at your computer… turn up your speakers… and get ready for that sweet nectar that only EARMILK can give ya. Let's GO.
Man it's been a long day. And yet it's amazing how music helps out. Bad news can be eased a bit if you hear the perfect track. Good news can be celebrated with the right track. I've got some new artists that I hadn't heard before and their music, combined with some artists that have been featured before, is what is needed for this Monday.
Starting off with some absolute insanity courtesy of DJ StrongArm. His description of the track says "60 samples in 4 minutes and 42 seconds" yet the track seems even crazier than the 60 samples. It may be a little too hectic for some, but there's no denying the effort that StrongArm put in to create this monster mash. Following that, we got some new D.veloped – who gives us a simplified sneak-peek mash off his upcoming mixtape; we got a hip-hop heavy sample on top of some chill EDM courtesy of Doug Bogan; and of course we got 2 tracks from DOSVEC himself. My preference of the 2 DOSVEC tracks is "Five" but "Mundo" more than carries its own as well.
And now I want to introduce a new masher [for me] – No Pets Allowed. Damn, I was pleasantly enjoying his tracks. Combining samples that one doesn't normally hear together to create a harmonious mash seems to be his specialty. I truly enjoyed his "Dead Siberian Romance" even with Lady Gaga doing her best to ruin the track (not a fan of hers if you haven't noticed), but what really caught my attention was "What Overnight Celebrities Know". Twista is renowned for spitting faster than you'll finish reading the rest of this paragraph, but Twista pairs perfectly with Two Door Cinema Club's "What You Know". No Pets reminds me faintly of DJ Bahler, but until I listen to a wider selection of music I won't make a definitive conclusion. For comparison sake, I've put Bahler's chill glitch mash of The Weeknd and Michael Jackson titled "Naiad".
