Being a Man Of Many Aliases (some of which have never been shared, dear reader) after DJNoNo and before I was Captain Obvious (and round about the same time as DJ Contaminations) I did a single spoof track by Buyrite Soundsystem, a spoof of a few friends of mine and their Rolex/Wiley connection, and the general tendency for neon, whoop-whoop lazer noises and deep basslines predominant at the time. Except rather than a cool 4×4 UK bass (yes that’s what they called it, 4×4 rather than 2-step, silly term) mashup, Zig & Zag got in on the mix.
Must have been doing something right as APC posted it back in the day, but now I can confess it was I, L’Eclair. Although anyone with half a brain probly worked it out, given that it sounded like DJNoNo Goes Neon Hoxton Rave.
Just back from Egypt and South Africa (hey they put on a revolution just for me! So nice!) but I’ve still been busy in my absence. DJNoNo’s spooktastic Xmas mashup ‘BlacKmas Dub’ went up yesterday as part of the inaugural post for the 13 Days of Creepmas – a Halloween protest against the creeping of Christmas into other seasons. In fact I was really surprised in South Africa (and obviously Egypt as a Muslim country) there were no Xmas decorations, so when I arrived at Heathrow I had a shock as the deluge of Xmas-related eye-tinsel had already started….Anyway also on the mashup EP are mashups from Sticks Downey, Cheekyboy, G4Gorilla And DJ Useo. You can also download my track here if the link goes AWOL in future.
Reanimating THAT Eminem acapella back to life as well as Zombie DJNoNo for a Ghoulish Horrible (in all senses of the word) mash, as part of the GYBO Halloween Challenge, here’s ‘The Gonk’ from Dawn of the Dead vs Eminem ‘My Name Is’ – My Name Is Bub!
Originally for the excellent Mashed n’ Slashed compilation last year, this is DJNoNo using Sesame Street’s Count von Count again with Batty Song and taking a more dancehall twist with Weedy G’s Sleng Teng refuelled riddim. One two three….batty!batty!batty!batty!
DJNoNo‘s frankly quite worrying love affair with Aphrodite (not as dodgy as his obsession with Julie Andrews, the stalking court hearing is in a few weeks) continues with this ode to the Asylum ‘Those Were the Drums’ mashing Mary Hopkin’s 1968 classic ‘Those Were the Days’ with ‘London Massive’ by Aphrodite – and craftily sneaking in some Osymyso talking about Bastard at the Asylum for Swiss TV all those years ago…
Yo! Yo! Yo! Ere iz mah new mashup, a funkee lil gully numbah which is reet clart, m8. I took mah home-boy Hugo Montenegro (in da hizzle!) n’ mixed im wiv Aphrodite, drum & bass GOD(ess?) and a little known grime GANGSTAH! groop called The Osmonds? Nevah heard of ‘em but dey are super-smart funky m8, gr8 bassline. Not so shure aboot dose haircutz an flares, but who knose. Oh an’ it reminded meh of dem liverpoolian scouse gits the Beatles so I dropped in somefink direct from the street, totally bangin’ m8, the Swingle Singers doing Daytripper. PROPAH JOKES!
