There’s an AC radio station here in Detroit that, sometime around Halloween it seems, switches over to an all-Christmas format. If you tune in to it even occasionally, you realized they pretty much just play a few songs over and over again. (and how is that unusual for commercial radio anywhere? but, I digress…) In […]

Yep, already messed up the rhythm of Monday mash-up postings. Stick with me — I think this’ll make up for it. We don’t reference it a ton, but Moodmat was named for the alternative to radio “formats,” a term The Electrifying Mojo coined and adopted as his DJ approach. His unique take on and Quixotic […]

I’ve been amazingly self-absorbed so far this year, so opening up my feed reader is always a bit of a shock. Other people have lives and things to say about them? Weird. Still, buried in a few hundred music posts, I somehow found McSleazy’s “retirement” announcement. A mash-up pioneer, he very well could have crafted […]

Mashups keep coming back year after year, month after month. In fact, they’re more pervasive than ever, creeping into stranger and stranger places. Don’t believe me? What about that delicious trio of condiments up top? Government and big industry? Autotune and talent? Yes, I think it’s high time we stopped ignoring them and brought this […]

If Recloose weren’t using those genre descriptors to describe his own work, I wouldn’t be linking to this great rarity he’s just unearthed. You keep making your Caribbean-B-boy-techno-funk-jazz-booty, Mr. Chicoine and we’ll keep eating it Midwestern-buffet-style. Goodfellas + Recloose- “Hop Off” (320kbps). via Recloose himself!

This came out late last year, but I’d imagine some of you out there could find a use for this today. So hard to pick a favorite. Enjoy. (via AudioPorn Central)

There are conceptual mash-up albums, and then there are nerd-savants. Granted, this one’s dependent on the audience being familar with Kōji Kondō’s compositions for the 5th game in the Legend of Zelda series — I remember just enough to rank this one of the most brilliant projects of its kind. The only way Team Teamwork […]

It’s shocking something like this hasn’t popped up before. Dert helps ease the harsh realities and temperatures of 2009 by evoking the spirit of everyone’s favorite squeaky volcano-hugger. That’s right, it’s a Björk-inspired beat “tape.” It doesn’t get much better than this, right? Taking a hyperrealistic force of nature and channeling her through the introverted […]

No, I don’t know what I’m doing up so early either. But look who’s all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to greet me. A brand new mix of Ghostly International’s influences from the last ten years, curated by founder Sam Valenti IV and mixed by new signing Michna! Who knew breakfast and Energy Flash went so well […]

drakh With all the download opportunities this week, this blog is more Advent calendar than anything else. This particular link is getting passed around like a Nigella Lawson recipe. You can’t go wrong with ingredients like these. Thanks to!

Harry, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just…let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee. — Agent Cooper […]
