#Mashup Monday - Week 76

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!

 It's December, 2012 is winding down and I'm going to make it my mission to not miss another week until the end. Yeah, it's only 4 more weeks but might as well start 2013 on a roll (granted the Apocalypse doesn't happen and the Mayans are wrong...here's to hoping). Start planning your resolutions and cue up the mashups, I've got 27 tracks with 1 mashup mix for you waiting below.

 Starting off this week, we have Compson Sound's "Chasing Relentlessly" that continues the EDM trend of mashups/remixes that use the released stems for Zedd's "Clarity". However the highlight of the track is really the fluidity from sample to sample, and I hear it instantly from the vocal sample of Krewella's "One Minute" transitioning to the aforementioned "Clarity". The usage of Usher's "Numb" along with R.E.M.'s "The One I Love" adds a more more mellow and emotional feel to the track. If I had only one word to describe this mashup, I would have to say 'clean'. There's no aspect that seems to be detrimental and the flow is just clean. Spicing up the playlist is a "gift" from Savoy through their Facebook page. I'm personally a fan of seeing established artists dropping these unexpected gems because it's a change from their original production. The first gift from Savoy combines their own "Senator" track with Die Antwoord's "Fok Julle Naaiers", and it's a straight jam. I've had it in my library for the past week or so, and I must say it did a great job of really energizing the atmosphere. It seems to be a simplistic A v B mash, but I dig the hell out of it. Second gift combines Savoy's "Devils on Horseback" with The Knocks' "Brightside", which is a nice mash in itself.

Probably one of my favorite mashes of this week's segment is newcomer Xam, providing "I Love Firework". I don't know why it is, but it seems as though some of my preferred and most played mashes tend to have artists that I can't really listen to individually. Once again, we have Katy Perry providing the individual artist I could live without, but pairing her with some Icona Pop gives us a rather spectacular mash. It would certainly seem to cater to a more feminine crowd, but it's a natural high-energy track that is accented wonderfully by "Firework". An extremely good find for a Monday, and certainly a track that would be a good way to start your day.

If there has been a genre that has rarely, and I mean rarely, made an appearance on Mashup Monday, I would have to say it is Country. Even though there is a whole geographic region that plays it almost religiously - I'm looking at you Southerners- it seems as though mashers have for the most part stayed away from the genre. Not really complaining seeing as I'm one Southerner that could live without it, but a group of mashers have done the near impossible. I recently stumbled upon an album that seems to be completely comprised of country samples paired with various other genres ranging from Top 40 pop, to EDM, to others. And (un)fortunately, 3 of those mashes have made their way to Mashup Monday. So kudos to Ryan Nellis envision for his "Run From The Maneater" (Hall & Oates vs George Strait), Amoraboy for his "Domino Home" (Jessie J vs Blake Shelton), and envision (once again) for his "Not Pretty Enough to Call" (Maroon 5 vs Kasey Chambers). Don't expect to hear this at parties, but if you're looking for some softer, and more chill, mashups then these are perfect to check out. Download  listen to the entire album, titled Tracks that are rarely travelled... here.

There are tons more mashes ranging from The Jane Doze, Dan Mei, Lobsterdust, Penn Wallace, Mashup Germany, as well as an almost 50 minute mashup mix provided by Elocnep for your listening pleasure. So as always, get to pressing 'play' and hit me up in the comments with your preferred mashups. Enjoy your week!

thank god you're back again. i miss this post when its not weekly.

Mashups are my fav type of music and i, like you, tend to really like those mashups that have people that i'd never listen to on their own (like Katy Perry).

i wish that, if possible, for A vs. B (vs. C) mashups you'd tell us the artists involved and tracks too. i like to know that stuff =]

The Rino mashup is pretty cool as is the Xam mash

Thanks for the comment Phips. I'll see what I can do about getting the samples written down for each track at the end of each post, but that'll be quite a list. I'll do it for next week and see how long it takes, and the response I get.

Oh and I expect MM to happen more often (ie back to it being weekly) since I've finished with some outside obligations

sweet! i know for stuff like Mashup Germany the samples will be off the wall. i wouldn't expect you to want to do that but for something like the Xam mashup, its only "I Love it" vs. "Firework". i know it could be a lot of work and i'll definitely take mashups and links over the sample list. =]

I really dig Mashup Mondays. This, along with Wobble Wednesdays, are the reason I started to frequent Earmilk in the first place. I really appreciate mashups as their own genre of music. Most people don't appreciate it as an art form but it really takes a keen ear to match up melodies like this. Thanks again, Nicolas!

Cheers for the love guys... although I will let you know that both the Maroon 5 AND the Hall & Oates mash were made by me (envision.), so it's awesome seeing them both make it in there!

My bad Ryan. For some reason, I accidentally attributed "Run From The Maneater" to yourself. Apologies!

For those wanting a Ryan Nellis mashup, check out Ryan's contribution in "Tracks that are rarely travelled..." here - https://soundcloud.com/ryan-nellis/somebody-rolls-gotye-vs-garth

I could've sworn Home was a song by Michael Buble and not Blake Shelton (in reference to the mix by Amoraboy) Sick list btw!
