Don Diablo's New Mashup: Phoenix vs. Jay-Z - 99 Fences


New Phoenix tracks seem to be popping up left and right these days, which makes sense because their new remix album is slated for release this Tuesday. Phoenix is seriously having a hell of a year.

Anyway, this new mash-up by Dutch producer Don Diablo, will not be featured on the official remix album. It should be though, because it’s just as good (if not better) than some of the other Phoenix remixes. On it, Diablo mashes up the King of New York‘s classic “99 Problems” with the French rock foursome’s smash hit “Fences.” Listen and download below.

Phoenix Performs "1901" on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien

Phoenix band

Last night, French alt rock band Phoenix made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and performed their hit song “1901.” I was glad they finally stopped by The Tonight Show to play for Conan and Andy, because lately it seems like they’ve been popping up everywhere else.

Earlier in the summer, the group was seen touting Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix on shows like Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and even Saturday Night Live. And just the other day I saw that they’ve been featured in a Cadillac commercial. Have they sold out? Maybe. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that “1901” is an awesome song. Besides, if Santogold (aka Santigold) can be featured in a crappy light beer commercial and still retain her credibility, then Phoenix has nothing to worry about.
