DJ Tuto (of Costa Rica) continues to impress me with his mashups, but he is starting to add music videos that have the quality of a PANOS T edit. Let It Go includes samples from Dada Life (both the original Rolling Stones T-Shirt and the CAZZETTE remix), Dirty South, Pendulum and even Justin Bieber. Now that I have had to listen to Boyfriend for the umpteenth in a mashup, I realized something. Bieber sounds like a young Justin Timberlake, please don’t crucify me for saying so; but think back to the 90′s I think we can all say we were annoyed by JT at one point or another. Granted, boy bands were getting kind of old so it was a good move to break a part from the rest. But the resemblance is there, JT got PUNK’d and Bieber did the PUNK’ing in the new season; and Bieber has already been on Saturday Night Live, I’m sad now that I’ve made the connection. DJ Tuto’s mashup is not sad, I’m going back for another listen!
3LAU just released his Dance Floor Filth 2 (#DFF2), the second installment of the budding series. A few days ago he released, H8, as a teaser to the release. After listening to it, I found myself skeptical of the release; I felt the song came up short. Luckily, there are plenty of other bootlegs on the album that make up for my weak anticipation leading up to the release. I had already heard Action and Jupiter Unison well before this album, I was surprised that they were included at first but they definitely deserve their respective spots.
There were a few other songs that left me in a good mood after listening to them for the first time. Guilty Pleasure is just that; although I don’t feel guilty about it! It has samples from Paris & Simo, Archie, Krewella, Pendulum and Dada Life; it’s a fun and upbeat track. Another track you have to listen to is, Lick It, with samples from Skrillex & Kaskade, Lucky Date, Krewella, Hypercrush, and Major Lazer; which starts off right away with a Dance heavy rhythm that I can see being picked up by club DJs.
Finally, there is Set Fire, a very quick paced mashup that pits Michael Calfan against Adele. A simple “A versus B” mashup that is put together masterfully by 3LAU. Let’s face it, Dance Floor Filth 2 is a compilation of Mega Mashups and that is something we can get behind! Overall, I would say that #DFF2 gets a 4.25 out of 5.
