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!
Hello ladies and gents! Hope y'alls Mother's Day celebrations went without a hitch this weekend. But now it's Monday, the beginning of the work week. For those of you who are dreading having to go through another long, frustrating, what seems like never-ending week, hopefully this new batch of mashups will help get you through it. For those of you finishing up classes and are gearing up for finals, well then I bid thee good luck. We've got an assortment of tracks (make sure you go all the way to the bottom) that will keep you focused, and counting down the minutes for when it is all done.
First up, we've got a new face to Mashup Monday, and he goes by the name of Rudebrat. This Bay Area artist feeds us a high energy, bass hitting, trap-trastic mashup featuring the likes of ƱZ and former mashup artists, and now sucessful remixers The Jane Doze. Titled "Can't Stop Defiant Order", Rudebrat throws caution to the wind and dares us to not get up and get crunk. Can't believe I just said that, but such is the beauty of this mashup.
Speaking of The Jane Doze, they dropped an infectious mash of their own during my time away from Mashup Monday. Of course, that doesn't mean that it should go unnoticed, and more importantly, it shouldn't go unheard by you guys. While categorized as an edit of Betty Who's "Somebody Loves You", the masterminds behind The Jane Doze (Claire and Jen) have expertly fused Audien's "Wayfarer" to give it a more EDM vibe. While Betty Who's original is decidedly more 80's pop, both the original and this edit are capable of inducing a dance frenzy. So how about it,? Get on out of that chair…

If you're looking for something a bit different, then take a gander at The Hood Internet's "Stonergramme". It's…interesting, to say the least. Taking Young Thug's "Stoner" and incorporating Breakbot's "Programme", The Hood Internet have taken both samples out of their normal element. No more is "Stoner" strictly Southern hip-hop, and no more is "Programme" electro funk; instead "Stonergramme" is a strangely successful melding of the two. For some it'll be a disastrous mess, but for those who are not afraid to challenge themselves, this could be the mashup of the week.
Continuing with our selection, I want to highlight a mashup album released by the GLDN Collective. Consisting of tracks from the likes of Penn Wallace, Ricky Cervantes, Frail Limb Purity, Isosine, and many other mashup artists that have received ample coverage here on Mashup Monday, this album titled SPRING 2014 has a little bit of everything. If you're looking for something smooth, then listen to Cervantes' and Frail Limb Purity's "Good Guys (Wedding Bells)". Looking to set an upbeat mood, look no further than the opening track "Orbit" done by Penn Wallace. If you're a fan, then grab the project in its entirety here.

We've got a bunch of other tracks below, so get to listening as each track are stand out in their own manner. It's good to be back, so be on the lookout for another batch of mashups coming to you next week. And as always, hit me up in the comments letting me know what mashes y'all were feeling, which tracks didn't hit the mark, and, most importantly, suggestions of tracks that I may have missed out on.
