Girl Talk Releases "All Day"

Girl Talk All Day - Album CoverMash-up artist Gregg Gillis, affectionately known by millions as Girl Talk, released his latest album All Day earlier today. I couldn’t be more excited. On All Day, Gillis mashes up tracks like Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie” to the 1987 hit “Jane Says,” Portishead with Big Boi, and Lady Gaga with Aphex Twin. His ability to make an un-danceable song danceable is pretty amazing. I’m sure a couple of these songs will find themselves on your weekend playlist.

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

don_diablo_you_will_never_leave_this_place

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.

Mixtape Mondays: Super Mash Bros - Fuck Bitches, Get Euros

super mash bros

Dick Flink and Nick Fenmore - or the Super Mash Bros - describe their group as “Girl Talk’s Hot Cousin.” Despite the abundance of family terminology, they manage to put together some extremely danceable stuff, with samples ranging from MGMT to Death Cab for Cutie to Nelly. With a few of these samples, it’s tempting to write off the group as a Girl Talk knockoff, but once you begin going through the album, listening to tracks like “Meet Me at Fantasy Island” (which samples Blink 182), or “Stop that Booty” (sampling Modest Mouse and Bubba Sparxx) you begin to understand that the Super Mash Bros sample sources much more diverse than Girl Talk. Spanning the spectrum from indie rock to Top 40 to european electronica,_ Fuck Bitches, Get Euros _should be the next mixtape you download.

DJ Earworm's The United State of Pop Mashup Video

DJ Earworm United State of Pop

So I stumbled across this interesting video/song a few days ago. DJ Earworm, a San Francisco-based mash-up artist, created a 4½ minute song from the top 25 hits of 2008, according to Billboard magazine. I was a little hesitant to post it, since most of the music that is included in this mash-up reminds me of how mediocre/boring the year 2008 was for pop music. Nevertheless, DJ Earworm manages to create a decent, catchy mash-up track, and an even better music video to go along with it. The tracklist for this mashup is as follows:
