It was nearly a month ago that we first heard James Illusion and his Austrian mixing capabilities. Now he’s out with a new bootleg that brings quite the dance energy to a Coldplay classic, Fix You. Even with the energy that this mashup adds to the samples used, it also has a calming effect that I’ll count as a qualifier for a Recovery Sunday track. Outside of the original Fix You single, James Illusion includes Jakob Liedholm’s Ibiza Mix and Alesso’s remix of Pressure originally produced by Nadia Ali, Starkillers, and Alex Kenji. This might actually be the perfect song to put on your iPod for when you commute to work tomorrow, it’s giving me that extra boost I need and it’s not even Monday yet.
Earlier today we ventured over to Italy for some International Tuesday fun and while we were over there, GiObAT reached out and wanted us to take a listen to his mashups. After careful review, I found a few tracks that were worthy of a feature. How To Roll The Dice is an older mashup of his, more than 6 months old to be more precise. While, there is a problem with the audio sample of The Fray, I really enjoy the direction that GiObAT chose with this one (if he can find a better quality sample and re-master this track I’m sure a lot more people would favorite it without question). Moving from March to May, the next mashup is entitled The Bad Pressure Circuits with The Bloodhound Gang, Quintino & Moti, and Nadia Ali. I like how it sounds like Nadia Ali is backing up Jimmy Pop (lead vocalist of The Bloodhound Gang), there’s a good harmony between the two.
Finally, we’re left with the original mashup that led us to GiObAT, I Don’t Like Aural Psynapse, which has Deadmau5 facing off against Eva Simons. This is over seven minutes long too! I can really sit back and zone out to this one; which can be much needed after a busy day. GiObAT is new to us, but not to the fans of Italy’s Progressive House movement. We will be keeping an eye for more of his releases!
This is the first official Mashup Monday of the new TMP 2.0 and we have a few mashups that we need to feature today! The first is a mega mashup produced by DJ Eli of New York City; this one is entitled Workaholic, with 8 different samples utilized we can see how this would take a lot of effort to perfect. DJ Eli used the following artists: Nadia Ali, Mac Miller, Cobra Starship & Kay, Hyper Crush, Na Palm, Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen, Dannic, and Hardwell; it’s quite the eclectic bunch! Plus, it’s over 5 minutes long so you definitely get a listen’s worth of music in just one play.
Another mashup that was dropped in the past week was from Compson Sound, Fade Into Coming Back, includes samples from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Taylor Swift, Avicii, and Calvin Harris featuring Example. The music video is provided above, I am enjoying the fact that more and more DJs are providing professionally produced video mashups to include with their releases; it makes the mashup just that much more marketable!
Finally, I want to feature VitaminPacks’ latest release, Sick Cataracts, which is a classic A versus B mashup (The Cataracts’ Top of the World vs. Troll – Sick Individuals Remix). Which an EDM heavy remix that is just simply fun to listen to. You should also his other mashup entitled, Carly vs. The Aliens when you get a chance; not included on this post because I can only officially get myself to succumb to a Carly Rae feature every once in a while, and with DJ Eli’s mega mashup; I’m at my quota.
