Instamatic – Still Haven’t Found It (Negativland vs String Quartet 2014 version)

stillhaventfoundit U2 vs String Quartet

With the death of Casey Kasem Negativland released the stems for their litigious ‘hit’ ‘The Letter U And The Numeral 2′, which survived ten days before U2′s legal eagles swooped and had no sense of humour at all. Over ten years ago I mashed this up with the String Quartet version of ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ using a sparse version. Now the stems are out there, it made sense to revisit it….adding in more Casey. (RIP).

Original 2004 version is still on here.

Instamatic – FIFA’s Out Of Control

New mashups on the way from Mr NoNo and Instamatic, but here’s a topical quickie – Pop Will Eat Itself ‘Reclaim the Game’ vs Chemical Brothers ‘Enjoyed’ aka ‘Out of Control’ instrumental remix.

PWEI released the acapella for their track Reclaim The Game, asking people to mash it up. I’m not a football fan but horrified by what’s been happening out in Brazil, the pacifications, the billions for stadiums that will only be used a few times while people live in favelas, the corruption, the tax-free exemptions for FIFA. FIFA is responsible, but doesn’t seem to care, even with a billion in the bank.

I broke the 109bpm rule in their competition, so what, so sue me ;-)

Ms Cyberpink’s Strangeword gets an Instamatic Video (Cameo vs Depeche Mode)

Here’s a video for former Parkade co-owner and DJ Amanda Shinji aka Ms Cyberpink’s great mashup ‘Strangeword’ – Cameo’s ‘Word Up’ vs Depeche Mode’s ‘Strangelove’ – a lot of fun to do. And again you can hear this track and tracks like it on rotation at Radio Clash Live.

I generally don’t tend to post my mashup videos over here, but they are a large part of my output now, expecially with Kleptonite (RIP) and hopefully other VJ gigs. You can find out more of my mashup videos over at my YouTube and Vimeo (both Push Groove and Strangeword would be on YouTube but nasty WMG & UMG stopped that…).

Push Groove now on Soundcloud / Download

My Salt N’ Pepa’s Push It vs Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart mashup is over on Radio Clash Live’s soundcloud page…even got the thunbs up from Lady Miss Kier on her Twitter!

If you like this you can hear this and tracks like it on Radio Clash Live our new 24/7 radio station!

Push Groove (Dee-Lite vs Salt n’ Pepa) video

Originally done for Kleptonite, here’s one of my new mashups which is Salt N’ Pepa’s Push It vs Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart…no HD since the Dee-Lite video is such low quality, even the ‘high quality’ ones!

The idea isn’t original, Half Arsed Beats did this in in the early 00s but I wanted to remake it with a video and refine it as their version was, err, as they say ‘quirky’ and not really DJ friendly with some very erratic off-beat* fill sections.

You can hear more of this over at Radio Clash Live, yada yada ;-)

* Nice way of saying those sections were OOT, as in out of time…or maybe it was an early experimental version of fidget house on the fill breaks, I dunno? It annoyed me that such a great idea wasn’t done as a straignt mashup. Yes it might not be ‘cred’ or 100% original, or even that clever, but sometimes you have to just put your DJ ego aside and do the track as it needs to be done…a good simple cheesy fun floor-filler. As long as that’s not ALL you do *grin*

Also I did quite a few other videos for Kleptonite, not for my mashes although I have a few others coming – here’s a selection:

Really proud of the Compuphonic / Petula Clark and E-Jitz – Def Con Wan ones. You can find more of my video work, including some new videos for old Instamatic/DJNoNo classics on YouTube and Vimeo. Should be a few more to come, including a very silly one and a very moody one.
