Whistle Loudly/Quietly Through The Night (Drumsound & Bassline Smith vs Pablo Beltrán Ruiz)

DJNoNo - Whistle Loudly / Quietly Through The Night Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Through The Night vs Pablo Beltrán Ruiz - El Silbido (El Pito) mashup bootleg bastard pop Senor Coconut boogaloo boogalu latin drum and bass swing and bass

EDIT: This won the challenge! Although I do find it interesting that I win the challenge yet both have gotten get zero likes on Sowndhaus. :-/

DJNoNo decided to have another go at the Crumplbangers Discord Spanish Challenge, he felt more bangin’ drum and bass was needed, but after a failed attempt to meld Cuando Cuando Cuando with Shy FX (watch this space, likely a non-Spanish version might appear in future) he then found this track called El Silbido (El Pito) (The Whistle in two languages?) by Pablo Beltrán Ruiz, the Mexican bandleader who wrote the song that became “Sway”.

So he mixed it with Drumsound & Bassline Smith – Through The Night, but very strangely for him also liked the non-banging version just using the synths and acapella from that. He hopes this track is in Spanish, he can’t make out the words? It’s quite a short set of lyrics…but definitely by a Spanish speaking artist.

It’s Drum n Boogaloo, or Swing n’ Bass, Latin bugalú meets drum and bass, I have to say I am fast preferring the synthy less busy and less beat-y quiet version more and more.

So here are both, they are separate entries and mixed and tweaked differently – one a quiet whistle, another a loud one. Very much inspired by Senor Coconut and London Elektricity.

And again, DJNoNo never makes political statements but he feels that this needs to be dedicated to the people of Ukraine, who need help to make it through the night atm.

Which is far too serious for a DJNoNo mashup! But we live in serious times.

Crazy Loco (Gnarls Barkley vs Luisa Fernandez vs El Risitas)

Oh dear who told DJNoNo about a certain AI extraction site for the Crumplbangers Discord Spanish challenge? o.O

DJNoNo Crazy Loco (Gnarls Barkley vs Luisa Fernandez vs El Risitas) mashup bootleg bastard pop spanish disco laughing man

He wanted to have a go, and he took his favourite Spanish Disco Poppet (TM) Luisa Fernandez – Loco Por Ti (more famously know as Lay Love On You, it’s English version) and mixed it with Gnarls Barkley – Crazy and the legend that was El Risitas to create a 1978 Spanish disco crumplbanger.

It’s actually the English version as a background, but it’s almost identical to the Spanish version, but he used the Spanish lyrics for Luisa, and basically recreated the original.

He wants to dedicate this to the ‘Spanish Laughing Man’ Juan Joya Borja, aka El Risitas who we lost last year, Now out on his own net record label, ‘You Won’t Like It’

Instamatic vs iWillBattle – Beatles Got Back

Instamatic vs iWillBattle Beatles Got Back (Sir MixALot vs The Beatles vs Channel One) Paul McCartney Got Back mashup bootleg bastard pop

Probably the world record for fastest reboot/remix?

I asked iWillBattle if it was OK to reboot his mashup ‘Paul McCartney Got Back’ , a brilliant combo of The Beatles with Billy Preston – Get Back vs Sir MixALot’s Baby Got back inspired by Paul McCartney’s Got Back tour poster. That was released just 24 hours ago because I wanted to take it in another direction. He said yes, and is happy for me to release this (I checked with him because the first time I did this the person wasn’t happy with it, only really done this 3 or 4 times in nearly 20 years!).

Here is his original:

And here is my take:

I wanted to add the beat from the original, which turns out is a sample itself – an early house track by Juan Atkins and Doug Craig (Carl Craigs brother) aka Channel One -Technicolor, and add more Beatles in, and generally beef it up.

This is very much the ‘maxi’ extended version to the original, which still stands up as a classic A vs B, but I wanted to have fun glitching to the beat and making more of an Instamatic version. Also his doesn’t have the intro, so I added that back in, because I think it’s a really iconic part of that track, but spun to the Beatles studio chat…. ‘Lorreta!’.

Proudest bit is in the drop – sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!

Anyway it’ s been interesting talking to Will comparing our different approaches, and looks like he might make a video of this, so it comes back around 😉
