To ease the waiting time until Future Funk Squad’s “Darker Nights” remix album arrives (soon!) I give you another mashup I created while trying to throw together another DJ set. One day… *sigh*
I also created a playlist of stuff I am probably never gonna finish due to the lack of useable source material. I blame Lulu Rouge for not releasing those instrumentals.
Sometimes a mashup can be more about fixing what’s already there: even though Fisso & Spark already did a remix for Hexadecimal’s “Open Your Eyes” it was a departure from their usual breakbeat style. No need to worry, though – the Dirty Beatmeister and his patented Vocal-B-Gone plugin are here to fill that gap.
Alright, so summer finally has arrived in Germany, bringing with him high temperatures, spontaneous thunderstorms and a great excuse to consume as much ice cream as your body can handle. It’s the perfect opportunity to share another mashup, this time combining British 90’s house pioneers Sunscreem with Spanish breakbeat wizard Colombo.
First, my most recent mashup. Nu-skool breaks vs. not-so-nu-skool anymore breaks. What comes after nu-skool? Middleschool breaks?
And the DJ set it was featured in.
Kid Panel – ‘R ‘U Ready? [The Pooty Club Records]
Colombo – California [iBreaks]
Deenk & Geon – Subtronic [Hard & Hits]
Vize – Killin’ Speakers (Blacklist Remix) [Breakz R Boss Records]
Mutantbreakz – Creation (Kid Panel Remix) [Rat Records UK]
Outer Kid – Panic In Funktron [Elektroshok Records]
Lo IQ? – Around The World [Breakz R Boss Records]
Fisso & Spark – Killer On The Dancefloor [DUBTRXX]
Chelydra – Vulpecula (Colombo Remix) [Acida Records]
Meat Katie & Elite Force vs. kuplay – Divine F*** (c-Row’s infusion vs. kid panel reboot) [CD-R]
Dustin Hulton – F*** U (Kid Panel Remix) [Sound Break Records]
Chevy One – Now I’m Letting It Go [iBreaks]
I had a hard time not turning this into a Kid Panel only set.
Also, sorry for the lack of anything game-related.
Get it while it’s available. 😉
So you might or might not have heard about some of the latest tunes I shared on SoundCloud. If you don’t have, here is one of the latest mashups, this time made entirely from different tracks by the same artist. Would love to do some more of these.
If you already know this one, there is no reason not to give it another spin, right?
Gave the latest Hybrid single a good spin, and look where it landed – combined with Way Out West’s “Only Love” this makes for the perfect tune of a summer yet to come. Received some great feeback already.
In other news, I did another episode of Dirty Beats Done Dirt Cheap. It’s an 80 minute trip of tech funk and breaks and the first episode that really deserves the Dirty Beats tag in my opinion. This one was an exclusive set for Kick 106 – expect more of these in the future.
Last but not least, I broke the 1,000 downloads barrier on SoundCloud. Thanks to everybody who helped raising that number!
Totally forgot to post this here… of course March was no exception from the Monthly Mashup schedule. This time we have Infusion and Gui Boratto, mashed into a tasteful dish which was hinted in my Dirty Beats DJ set before.
Gui Boratto’s “Take My Breath Away” really is one versatile monster – you can throw almost any track at it and it will still sound awesome. At first, I wanted to combine it with the vocals from Hybrid’s “Formula Of Fear”, but Rektchordz got the nod instead, and you all know how that turned out. So instead, I decided for Infusion’s “Dogtown (D-Nox & Beckers remix)” and never looked back since.
I hereby declare March the official Month of Awesome. Seems like my Rektchordz/Hybrid mashup not only got more plays than any of my previous work, it even ended up on Chris & Mike’s own radar somehow, suggesting on SoundCloud they will play it at some point. Their comment also drew several new listeners to my profile, so that’s a double thank you guys!
But there is even more to come – looks like my Dirty Beats dj set will be aired as Progression Guestmix @ 22:00 23/03/10 on www.kick106.co.uk next week. Hope some of you tune in that evening!
