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 you're 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.
So last week we had The Hood Internet's "Pesobedear", and this week I felt it was necessary to give y'all Sean Johnson's "Golbiedear" which uses A$AP Rocky's "Goldie" instead of "Peso". Now I'm conflicted as to which A$AP Rocky track uses Purity Ring's "Obedear" more effectively, but I'm leaning towards Sean Johnson. But in the grand scheme of things, it's your opinion that matters more so help me decide which mash you enjoy more.
Continuing on this huge list, I want to present an exclusive track download from Loo & Placido off of their Retro Future Shock Vol. 1 Mixtape. The track, titled "Skrillex Rock", employs samples from Queen, Daft Punk, House of Pain, and the divisive Skrillex (divisive in that you either love him or hate him). The intro to this track was slightly suspect because I didn't know what exactly to expect, but once I heard the integrated drop of Skrillex's "Reptile Theme" I was sold. Loo & Placido, along with DJ Hero, successfully bring together a classic from Queen with the unreal sounds of Skrillex.
Two interesting mashes on the list are that of Scott Melker of The Melker Project as well as Fissunix's new track solely for the fact that both mashes employ huge name bands that I've never really listened to. Scott Melker mashes Jay-Z with The Beatles while Fissunix mashes Led Zeppelin with The Doors. I wholeheartedly admit that I was never really introduced to The Beatles or Led Zeppelin because I was raised on Spanish artists/music, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying these exquisite mash combinations.
Speaking of exquisite mashes, DJ MashHawk gives us a stunning mashup using Deadmau5's new "The Veldt" track, that I personally think is going to start making its rounds in various forms of bootlegs, remixes, mashups, etc. until it's overdone. But for now, MashHawk pairs it nicely with the simple and smooth vocals of Coldplay's "Waterfalls" creating a happy synergy between both acapella and instrumental. Another mash within the list that stands out is G-Rex's "Juicy Adventure" that pairs the unbelievable melodies of Adventure Club with the rough hip hop sounds of Three 6 Mafia. I was a little hesitant at first, but the vivacious sounds of Adventure Club is unparalleled and serves nicely to counter balance the roughness of Three 6.
Other tracks that need to be noted are that of DJ Fergie Ferg, who always seems to come out with something different compared to his last track; an older track from The Kleptones that employs the sensual vocals of Marvin Gaye; a magnificent mash from wait what using Passion Pit's new "Take A Walk"; and newcomer ricky! who reignites my love for The Glitch Mob by pairing it with Mims. And finally, I wanted to post Triple Six Sound Club's "Mercy" bootleg solely for the fact that it sounds amazing on speakers. I'm a fan of bass, and while I'm not 100% sure that this bootleg is a mashup, I felt the urge to add it regardless. So take a listen to the 27 tracks below and hit me up in the comments, via Twitter, or via Facebook with your thoughts.
