Katamari Sound Machine (Rhythm Is Gonna Funk You) (Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine vs Katamari Forever)

Instamatic Katamari Sound Machine (Rhythm Is Gonna Funk You) (Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine vs Katamari Forever) mashup bootleg latin bastard pop Senor Coconut

Last week’s challenge was video game tunes, so of course I chose my favourite games – although in this case, it’s my favourite game soundtrack, I’ve never played Katamari Damacy or sequels!

Yes this is Senor Coconut remixing Katamari on the Funk it’s on the game soundtrack for Katamari Forever…and works perfectly with Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

I wanted to do a mashup with Katamari on the Rocks, this is my third attempt since the 00’s, but it’s just too busy. So hence Senor Cocounut’s more stripped back take on Shibuya-Kei (this in fact probably was my first musical experience of that genre back in the mid 00’s) worked better.

Merengue! Cha Cha Cha!

Fun fact: as an 80’s teen I was a MASSIVE Gloria Estefan err, fan. Had several of her – well Miami Sound Machine’s – 80’s albums including Anything For You that included ‘Rhythm…’.

Making her into the King (Queen?) of All The Cosmos is all kinds of funny though for the artwork….

Marvin Gayle (Gayle vs Marvin Gaye)

Instamatic Marvin Gayle (Gayle vs Marvin Gaye) ABCDEFU What's Going On mashup bootleg bastard pop soul fuck you

I was trying to make Gayle vs Gaye Bykers On Acid – dunno why but given this is probably the best thing I’ve done this year, I’ll take it. Had fun recreating the cover as well, finding that rather odd Germanic typeface.

I did google/YT it, I don’t think it’s been done….She goes all soulful, her singing seems to suit a slower tempo, all drawn out. I didn’t like ABCDEFU when I first heard it, but it’s grown on me.

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 😉

GOh Beat! (The Linda Lindas vs The Go Go’s)

GOh Beat! (Linda Lindas vs Go Go's) mashup instamatic bootleg bastard pop new wave punk

Probably the first Linda Lindas mashup?

This was done for this week’s Crumplbanger’s Challenge which was from Will Battle – and he challenged us to use a track from a band on the When We Were Young festival. A lot of bands I am not into, but at the bottom is The Linda Linda’s which I LOVE.

Listening to their last but one single ‘Oh!’ I was reminded of the Go Go’s and We Got The Beat, so I mashed the two together. A short pop punk gem, if I say so myself.

This was awarded 4th out of a massive week of 35 entries! Very proud of that.

Run The Jungle (Run The Jewels vs Dwarde & Tim Reaper)

Run The Jungle (Run The Jewels vs Dwarde & Tim Reaper) mashup bootleg drum and bass bastard pop

Another lost mashup – this Jungle/drum and bass remake of the then current Ooh La La by RTJ got played on the podcast in demo form in 2020 but never released.

Here is the updated and tidied up version, it’s a lot cleaner and has an ending, of sorts!

New Order vs Madonna – Nothing True Really Matters (Instamatic Mashup)

Instamatic - Nothing True Really Matters (New Order vs Madonna) mashup bootleg bastard pop Nothing Really Matters True Faith
Madonna in Squished By A Giant Gold Leaf SHOCKAH!

This is a mashup for the current Crumpbangers Discord Weekly Challenge which this week is set by reconthuse – he wanted us to take a favourite mashup, then reboot it using the same artists (or album, although that rule has been relaxed) in an adjacent alternate reality combination.

I chose Party Ben’s Bizarre Light Triangle (Madonna – Ray of Light vs New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle), and strictly True Faith wasn’t on the same album as it was non-album single (but it was on Substance and the Deluxe version of Brotherhood later) but Nothing Really Matters was on the Ray of Light album.

It bangs, and I think it works really well, I was asking myself ‘What Would Party Ben Do?’ when doing this. And ironically it’s almost a reboot in itself, because I came up with the combo then later found back in 2010 Eden did this combo but as a DJ club remix with the full tracks, not a A vs B mashup as you can hear it is very different.

Let me know if the Grand Mashup Council thinks I should credit this in the title as a reboot – I mention it in the comments in the MP3 & Sowndhaus, but I personally think it’s a stretch to say it’s a direct reboot, but it’s a grey area…

Captain Obvious – Peaches To Die For (Sam Smith vs Justin Bieber)

Captain Obvious Peaches To Die For (Darko Edit) (Sam Smith vs Justin Bieber) mashup bootleg bastard pop cover

This was made back in May for another project but never finished, so I tidied it up for the newly resurrected Captain Obvious.

I didn’t release it then cos I hate the Biebster but like the instrumental of ‘Peaches’ and love the Sam Smith song, so another dark uptempo happy/sad bittersweet groover with cheesy pop – with extra Donnie Darko spoken word, cos that’s where Sam Smith got those bits.

Captain Obvious – Adele Sevenfold (Dear Adele) (Adele vs Avenged Sevenfold)

Captain Obvious Adele Sevenfold (Dear Adele) (Adele vs Avenged Sevenfold) mashup bootleg bastard pop diva country metal

Return of the Cap’n!

An obvious mash of country diva metal – of Easy on Me vs Avenged Sevenfold’s Dear God. That Easy on Me track works really well with country tunes.

I had more fun doing the artwork tbh. OBVIOUS!

One for the Tiktoks methinks…not that I’ll post there, I won’t past the age bar 😛

Thanks to Vixoriadrift and Reconthuse for timing advice on the first version which was slightly off beat – please download again!

EDIT- and I made a video – woah….long time not making one of those! Boo video blocked on YouTube….another DMCA appeal with SME. Always SME!

While waiting for that appeal, here’s Vimeo:

Solar First (Lorde vs Bobby Goldsboro)

Solar First lorde solar power bobby goldsboro summer first time mashup bootleg bastard pop cover

A nostalgic mashup for the end of summer, and originally made for Useo’s Summer Booty but not finished in time – so doubly fashionably late for the beach party!

Solar Power meets Bobby Goldsboro’s The First Time, a forgotten classic from 1973. Even has the same hint of menace/weirdness at the end like the original Solar Power track.

Toxic Love Shack Skank (Britney Spears vs B-52’s)

Toxic Love Shack Skank mashup bootleg bastard pop remix Britney Spears Toxic Bluebeaters B-52's Love Shack Thriftshop XL reboot

Purely out of the blue I decided to recreate Thriftshop XL’s Toxic Love Shack bootleg from 2004. Remember that? I’m sure everyone has forgotten it by now.

Anyway I have never done a B-52’s – Love Shack nor a Britney Spears – Toxic mashup *clutch pearls – I kno rite?* so with this mashup I put that right forthwith. Using The Bluebeater’s excellent ‘One Drop’ ska version of Toxic, with the original vocals for a ska/dubby summer jam.

Oh and FREE BRITNEY (well seems like she is, but who knows by the time this gets published – btw I am writing this in advance as I’ll be on holiday when this goes out). (Also might be why the player isn’t visible as I will try to switch it to public on some remote cliff somewhere – but might not get any signal!)
