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!
Another weekend has come and gone (much too quickly, mind you), but we've got another installment of Mashup Monday to help ease the pain. With newcomer Leeya's "Something Worth Dreaming Of", we begin with a somewhat subdued mashup that employs Santigold's vocals from "L.E.S. Artistes" as well as the Hawaiin sensation Mr. Carmack. There's something heartfelt with this mash that left me craving more, so of course I had to search for more from Leeya. Her second mashup, "Make Me Go", is decidedly more upbeat but equally as touching. I'll certainly be on the lookout for other offerings from this talented female masher.
Next up, we have a month old mash from the maestro Carlos Serrano. Titled "Believing Flies", Serrano instructs us on how to correctly combine Community star, and hip-hop artist, Childish Gambino and UK sensations AlunaGeorge. The overall vibe is cool as the other side of the pillow, leaving your ears more than refreshed. If you haven't been subjected to the wondrous musical selections of Carlos Serrano, then checking out his Soundcloud page is an absolute must.
Searching for a little bit of old school hip-hop vibes? Look no further than DJ Chamber's "Tic-Toc The Mould" and his mash of The Nextmen and Lords of the Underground. Utilizing "Break the Mould" (The Nextmen) and "Tic-Toc" (Lords of the Underground), Chamber successfully brings a groovy instrumental and induces an instantaneous urge to bob your head. So don't be afraid to take a quick drag (or two, or three…) and allow yourself to be transported to a different time.
We've got many more tracks for y'all to check out with other recommended tracks being Goodie's "I Luv Stayin' Alive", Bonez McCoy's remix/mashup "Ride, Swerve, & Smile", Colatron's "Sir Kook", and DRA'man's "Fall In Love With Him". They've each got something a bit different, so hit up the comments section with what you were digging and what you weren't.
