DJNoNo Crumplstock 10 set

Crumplstock 10 - DJNoNo set Phoning In From The Apocalypse

There was a good reason why DJNoNo’s Crumplstock set was called ‘Phoning In From The Apocalypse’ was called that, an angry upbeat set – it was meant to be more positive and it is in parts with the Happy Hardcore, but the apocalyptic theme was there from the start I just amped it up.

I played a lot of originals, mashups, remixes, metal 8-bit and symphonic covers, bits from CONELRAD and Kids in the Hall, rave, breakbeat, 80’s doomy pop, and started with a Pansy Division track ‘Smells Like Queer Spirit’ for Pride/current events I’d heard the night before at Duckie. Good tunes for the end of the world….

There’s a few unreleased tracks in this Crumplstock set, the HardCure track ‘Let’s Go To A Whispering Forest’, NoNo Limits and a new demo using Wikka Wrap vs Doja Cat – and All My Lubbers totally violating the Twitch TOS, but fuck it.

Bootie Top 10 – Genesis vs U2 vs Negativland

Instamatic Still Haven't Thrown It All Away (Genesis vs U2 vs Negativland) mashup cover Bootie Top 10

I am seriously behind posting my mashups to my site and here – check my Sowndhaus page for the up-to-date latest releases, but this recent mashup made the Bootie Top 10 for June – surprised because it features Negativland, not the usually most ‘pop’ of artists (although they are popstars in my heart…) but the rest is very radio friendly.

It mixes Genesis with more memories of 1986 with ‘Throwing It All Away’ – one of my first albums was Invisible Touch and I still stand by that album – mixed with U2’s stadium-bothering I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and the lawyer-bothering ‘The Letter U and the Numeral 2’ acapella and ‘radio edit’ which U2 famously nuked and is a part of mashup/copyright history.

I even did a ‘booper’ radio version – I asked The Weatherman if I could use some of his booper and he said yes, so I took some bits to edit out the rudeness, still think those bits are too strange for radio, but Stranger Things have happened (see what I did there?)

Pride Mashups: Relax And Take The Easy Cure (Aurora vs MIKA) & Lizzo vs Patrick Cowley & Sylvester

Instamatic - Relax And Take The Easy Cure (Aurora vs MIKA) Pride mashups

As it’s Pride month (well in the States/the Stonewall anniversary, our Pride is the start of July in London, Brighton is in August.) so here’s two new mashups/ First is a mashup and video of not one but TWO queer artists – MIKA and Aurora .

Her song ‘Cure for Me’ is about conversion therapy, so it’s sadly very apt for these times. No Cure for Me! MIKA – who recently presented Eurovision, his Relax, Take It Easy song which contrast the Aurora vocal, like a call and answer, and has some quite alarming lyrics to contrast the chorus. It’s intentionally bittersweet pop vs pop with a deeper message.

It got it’s exclusive first play on DJSQWRL’s Bootie stream early this morning, and went down well, so here’s to many more! And it has a video – had a lot of fun with effects and layering, it’s one of my best.

And also this is the second mashup I made for Pride this time from Captain Obvious – my Lizzo vs Patrick Cowley ft Sylvester – Do Ya Wanna Funk mashup, very 1978 disco like the Lizzo song – About Damn Time – in two versions, extended and shorter ‘radio’ edit (as if I’d ever be played on the radio!)
