♬ Mashup-Germany – Top of the Pops, 2011

Mashup-Germany, aka Ben Stilller of Frankfurt, has produced some pretty astounding mashups. With each new track, Stilller adds more songs in more varying genres and mashes them together seamlessly. He’s got the technique down pat. What with SHM@MSG just around the corner, figured I should also post this old fave..

♬ Mashup-Germany – Save Somebody’s Sunshine World (Swedish House Mafia vs. Counting Crows vs. Kings of Leon vs. Dance Nation)

So the cat’s outta the bag; those three dots are synonymous with Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia, soon making an uber-hyped-up landing in the UK and at Madison Square Garden here in New York, where the trio managed to sell out all 15,000 tickets in under just 10 minutes…during a facebook presale. Yep, you read all that correctly. These three are setting new records for EDM music. So in case you haven’t heard of them yet, you will soon…

♬ Glee Cast – Rumour Has It/Someone Like You (Adele Mashup)

Even though I caught a preview of this last week, I was still mad impressed when it aired this past Tuesday night. Forget however you feel about Glee; there’s simply no denying the crazy-dancy-goodness of this mashup of Adele’s’ “Rumour Has It” and “Someone Like You”. Sorry for the delay… enjoy your thursday night television, Amurrica..

♬ Adele – Rumour Has It
★ Adele – Rumour Has It (Atom Christie Remix)

♬ Adele – Someone Like You
♬ Adele – Someone Like You (DJ PS1 Bootleg)

Gonna get mashed up

It’s my humble opinion that the words in songs have little to no real relevance to the overall satisfaction of the listener. You can reach absolutely epic heights with the most basic of choruses, just as easily as a beautifully-worded song falls flat, a disastrous mess. Trashy songs like “I’m blue, abu dee abu di” become world-famous on a daily basis. And what about the entire rap genre, whose elegantly euphemism-laced words are so carefully scripted, yet quickly turn on us, becoming antiquated, monotonous and less and less inspiring. What sticks? The harmonies that chilled our spines; the bass drops that re-synced our heart rhythms; the melodies that forced our mouths to sing when we hardly knew the words. And this is where mashup artists can come to the rescue; with their clever additions of pop melodies and rhythms, they rebuild our discarded treasures into memorable collages of the best.

♬ Field Mob – Georgia (feat. Ludacris)
★ Lil Wayne ft The Fray – You Found How to Love (DJ 21azy Remix)
♬ Musicmatician – Not Romantic (Afrojack x Deadmau5 x Chromeo x Enrique feat. Luda)

Happy 11·11·11 :)
