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…).
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.
* 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 straight 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.
