I Go Hard in the Spaceman, that’s what she said! I couldn’t help myself. That mashup is Michael Fury’s new ‘less is more mashup’ with only two samples, Wacka Flocka Flame and Hardwell. We first featured a few of Michael Fury’s mashups back before the site crashed, so I’m happy to get him back on the website! Next up is the new one from KosherKittens, he surpassed the 4k download milestone recently so he decided to release a new one, to help him get a thousand more. Work It Back to Cali samples Notorious B.I.G., Jurassic 5, and Dave Matthews Band. If you’re like me, you’ve been seeing the direction that KosherKittens has been developing as a fresh mashup artist. He likes the old school sound of Biggy and 2Pac; he may still be a young college student, but he hasn’t forgotten the music that got us to where we are today!
Finally, we have a mashup from Costa Rica DJ, DJ Tuto. Let’s Go Back features Tiesto & Allure, James Egbert, Ne-Yo, and Wynter Gordon. It’s a great production, and like everything that DJ Tuto does, we know a mashup video will be coming soon! Look at what I’ve done here, I started with an ‘a vs. b’ mashup, added ‘c’ in the next one, and ended with four samples. That’s the beauty of mashups, you can keep it simple or have multiple angles, it still sounds good.

And now for something a little different, or a lot different depending on your perspective. There is a new quartet of DJs in the industry and they go by the name of FourMore. It’s your classic barbershop quartet, except no one is singing (I hope), they are just making sweet sweet nectar in the form of music bootlegs and mashups. Currently, they are DJing from four different cities and four different time zones. We can appreciate that concept, we try to share good music from all over the United States (and the world, because we seek world domination – no, not really, though it would be cool, just saying). But they are able to produce music from four different areas in this country. FourMore is made up of brothers Kyle & Jared, plus their college friends Eric and Alex; currently representing the Bay Area, Honolulu, Texas, and Boston. We’re already familiar with Kyle’s work, or should I go by his stage name, T.Ski, a guy that we’ve featured in the past.
I discovered this new Fantastic 4 (only with musical powers instead of the ability to ignite into fire or form a rock wall) through T.Ski’s SoundCloud account and liked what I heard! Spectrum of Love is not another Zedd knockoff, rather it is a mega mashup of major mixing proportions. I takes samples from Zedd, Justin Bieber (we can overlook this if you can), Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Akon, David Guetta, Afrojack, and Will.i.am. This mashup meets their goal of sharing EDM music that makes you want to party and rage. I need a few more rage tracks though, it’s hard to rage to just one song, so FourMore, keep pumping them out and we’ll keep listening!
It was just over a year ago that I started conceptualizing the layout for this website; what to call it, what music we’d feature and how I’d find the music. Well, one year ago to this very day, we officially launched The Music Phoenix to the public and have been going strong ever since. We are in our 2nd version (TMP 2.0) of the original concept, the music we feature has remained the same but the layout looks a little different (and a little better if I do say so myself). We have added key players to the team and resident DJs to help with the process. We’re incredibly happy with the success we’ve had in such a short amount of time! So, thank you, each and every one of you that continue to check us out for music week after week; if you’re brand new to us, thank you for taking the time to check us out.
That being said, it is our favorite day of the week, it’s Mashup Monday! I figured it was only right to feature Bootleggers Music today, two days ago (September 1st), Teddy Vrountas and Wayne Fysh celebrated their one year anniversary of teaming up and creating bootlegs together. They released Pump It Up! for their fans and supporters, which includes 14 samples from a variety of artists: 2 Unlimited, Salt ‘N’ Pepa, Tag Team, Jennifer Lopez featuring Pitbull, Technotronic, Ying Yang Twins featuring Greg Tecoz, Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo, LL Cool J, Chemical Brothers featuring Q-Tip, Public Enemy, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, House Of Pain, and Joe Budden. That is quite the lineup of early 90′s Hip Hop (and some current heavy hitters).
So, again, thank you for stopping by and we hope to continue to build the brand around what you like to listen to and discover! Happy (continued) listening!

It has been a while since we’ve done a DOSVEC (DJ Whatt) feature and now that well, Summer Is Over, as he put it on his latest mashup; I figured it was time to let him take us into the new season. The season of test taking and parties, last-minute cram sessions and weekend benders, the decision to attend class or not and which house party to drop in on. Yes, we are getting underway with college courses again; let’s just hope you pass more classes than you did at the end of last semester and to the Freshmen, let’s hope you make it past the first semester without being placed on Academic Probation. The music video above the previously mentioned track by DOSVEC which includes samples from the Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull (featuring Marc Anthony), Kelly Clarkson, and Carly Rae Jepsen (I know, last time you heard from me I was hoping to be done with her for the day… I just can’t avoid it, sorry); all of these samples flow interchangeably over Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo’s Let’s Go.
Another mashup that brings me excitement for what’s to come is the latest from the Catalina Rhyme Mixers. They are planning on releasing their new album on Sunday, September 30, 2012 (mark your calendars now). It’s the followup to their “Mash-Stache” mixtape; this one will be entitled “Mullet Mash;” business in front, party in the back! Rocking Horse is the first preview we are getting of their latest project; I’m glad they decided to give us over five minutes of a taste instead of less! This thing is sampling Ellie Goulding, Afrojack and R3hab from what I can tell.
