DJNoNo – Those Were the Drums (Mary Hopkin vs Aphrodite)

DJNoNo‘s frankly quite worrying love affair with Aphrodite (not as dodgy as his obsession with Julie Andrews, the stalking court hearing is in a few weeks) continues with this ode to the Asylum ‘Those Were the Drums’ mashing Mary Hopkin’s 1968 classic ‘Those Were the Days’ with ‘London Massive’ by Aphrodite – and craftily sneaking in some Osymyso talking about Bastard at the Asylum for Swiss TV all those years ago…

DJNoNo – Those Were The Drums(Mary Hopkin vs Aphrodite)

This was played back in November at the 72 night, not got around to posting that and the other tunes I did until now…rest will follow hopefully 😀

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!

Thanks to RevMenagerie who requested my Negativland / String Quartet mashup…

NOTE: Some of these tunes are severely NSFW – especially FCUKK Fashion…

  1. The Future Sound of Peaches (FSOL vs Peaches)
  2. Missy Wants A White Horse (Missy vs Laidback and jacky – one of my personal faves)
  3. Fragile Tomorrow (Kings of Tomorrow vs Fragile State)
  4. FCUKK Fashion (Prodigy vs Bowie and DJ Yoeri) (as Instore – with the Kate Moss situation strangely topical now!)

  6. Still haven’t Found It (Negativland live vs String Quartet)
  7. Blancmange Milkshake (Kelis vs Blancmange)

  10. Altogether Let it Be Me (An exercise in combining songs inspired by Pachelbel’s Canon – Nancy Sinatra vs The Farm)
  11. Radio 4Play (Shannon vs Radio4) I got kind of obsessed by Shannon’s ‘Let the Music Play’, and then Kelis’s Milkshake…shows huh?
  12. My Muppet Band (Tokyo Ska Orchestra vs D12 – originally over at Strangely Familiar website)
  13. Infidel Milkshake Party (Wyclef & Missy vs Kelis)
  14. Work it Tiger (Le Tigre vs Masters at Work)

    Kid Carpet / Ludacris vs Kriss Kross / House of Pain vs Kriss Kross / Wildchild vs Beasties)

and from the DJNoNo canon, a few rarities:

  1. I Love Happy Hardcore (Fuck Happy) – first DJNoNo boot, done for a Happy Hardcore competition where mrNo shows how much he likes Happy Hardcore…
  2. Too Many Egos full version (various based on the odd acapella version of EgoRocker and a pisstake of several Ego-Rocker boots – a short 70s version that eventually appeared on Marty Batfreak’s 100 mix)
  3. Em is a Naggin Fly (Crossover vs Eminem vs Roy Orbison – pisstake of Eminem boots and mrNo trying to prove Bush No.10 wrong when he said Eminem boots now didn’t work. Did thaNo succeed? Erm, pass…)

Burn Your Radio (Leftfield vs Queen and Public Enemy) – new mashup!

I wasn’t dead, only sleeping 😉 Just wanted to come back with something good and I think this might do the trick…

I played this at Bastard to end my recent set, seemed to get a good response so I thought I would release it into the wild – this is the mastered and slightly tweaked version. Also think it might have been played at Bootie (?). Definitely one for the dancefloor – it was inspired by podcasting, and especially the Radio Clash podcast I do.

Includes Queen – “Radio GaGa”, Leftfield “Open Up” and Public Enemy “Burn Hollywood Burn”

Instamatic – Burn Your Radio(192kbps, 5:59)

And has a great video now courtesy of Mistah Pok – thank ye kindlee!

EDIT: In 2012 I remade the video at higher quality, using clips from Leftfield and various Atomic Age clips:

Peaches n’ Orbs (Roy Orbison vs Peaches)

OK so I might not be an Outkast obsessive but I am a Peaches fanatic and have used her in at least 4 mashups before now – but none as weird as this. It came to me where I was working at the time there was a 60’s golden oldie station and Roy Orbison’s ‘You Got It’ came on…and it shows you my warped mind that my first response was ‘that’s the same beat as Peaches’ ‘Set it Off’….so Peaches n’ Orbs was born.

It was played (badly by me) at Bastard in February 2004, it went down well despite my nervously bad DJing…I have become slightly better at it since then. 😀


Peaches n’ Orbs

Push it Slut

An old one now, played at Bastard in Feburary 2004 I seem to remember, this is Avenue D ‘Do I Look Like a Slut’ vs Salt n’ Pepa ‘Push it’. I’m still rather fond of it despite planning to revisit it sometime to make it tighter as it’s a bit creaky now…not sure I ever will tho so catch it while you can!
