(after Shepard Fairey)

OK I’ve been working on this mashup of Stereo MC’s vs Rolling Stones vs Benga vs Fun Boy 3 for a while – kind of a State of the Nation address in a mashup as regards how I felt in the run up to the US election, Georgia v. Russia, Iran and Iraq, Military Industrial Complex and various things…but history in the fact of Obama being elected president overtook me, so the paranoid worried bootleg seemed a bit at odds with the times.

So I’ve created two – one called (Fear) the full-length extended version with the Chris Rock intro, and a short radio version called (Hope) using Barack Obama’s recent speech in Chicago after he won the presidency – really they are different mashups, with a common basis.

Ground Shelter (Fear) – Stereo MC’s ‘Ground Level’ vs Rolling Stones ‘Gimme Shelter’ vs Benga ‘Lightbulb’ vs Fun Boy 3 – ‘Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum’

Apologies to Shepard Fairey for abusing his wonderful artwork; and love goes out to Ian Fondue who gave me some tips on an earlier version – hope it works Ian!

Neon Sex People (Neon Neon vs Depeche Mode and Latour)

Neon Sex people cover

OK this was premiered at CMP 9 – I think this is fairly obvious and hope no-one has already done it, I finished it several weeks ago and have been scared since then someone would do it as well!

Basically the new Neon Neon (Gryff from Super Furry Animals and Boom Bip) is ace, but the track ‘I Lust U’ is more than slightly influenced by a certain Depeche Mode track, so I’ve mashed People are People and I Lust U together, with occasional interventions from Latour’s People Are Still Having Sex.

I think it’s brill and one of my best, but then I would would’nt I?

And it now has a video:

I did this one ages ago (in 2005) played it on the podcast as an exclusive (show 42 of course!) then never released it. Partly because it was an overused pella, and partly because I wasn’t happy releasing stuff at the time.

Fast forward to a few days ago, played it to a friend that went ‘wow’ and told me to release it…maybe everyone has gotten over the Dirrty Xtina overload 3 years later? Anyway listening back it’s actually very good!

I’m not dead just been busy doing the podcast (it now has a baby also) and very few mashups…well loads of mashups and long mixes, but the mashups never get finished LOL.

Until now, well Xmas – I created two new Instamatic tracks for the mashup compilation I put together called ‘This One’s for Joe’ in honour of Joe Strummer who died 5 years ago on December 22nd. Hope you enjoy them!

Instamatic’s Greatest Misses – a retrospective

A lot of my old boots/mashups haven’t been online for years – most people don’t know I’ve created something like 50+ mashups as Instamatic since 2003, more as DJNoNo and as tbc and various aliases…there have been quite a few mashups ‘retrospectives’ recently, and the odd request to find various tracks so here is my Greatest Misses…tracks that fell down the cracks!

Also a few tracks such as the Jump megamix (Jump x2 and Renegade Trouble) and the Too Many Egos haven’t been properly released before.

stillhaventfoundit Also includes my first released mashup – FSOL vs Peaches, so you can see how far little I’ve developed…I did think ‘shall I redo some of these?’ or fix some of the mistakes I can hear now – I thought not since I hate that when say bands re-release ‘tweaked’ or ‘improved’ versions of old songs. Publish and be damned!
