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:

Stone Cold Roses (Stone Roses vs Outkast)

Another Bootie track, this has been cleaned and tidied up a little since, and made shorter…it seemed to divide opinion at the time; it seemed a rather obvious mashup using Outkast’s Roses (sheesh I must sound like I’m an Outkast obsessive, I like em but I’ve done 3 bootlegs using them so far!) and Stone Roses funky ‘Fools Gold’

I must have done something right tho, as Partyben span it before I went on (I’d already planned not to play it, but was using it to promote my Bootie appearance) and it’s been in not one but 2 of his SIXXMIXXes. Thanks, Ben! So I feel slightly happier with it now…

Bootie pt 2 – Smells Like Sylvester (Nirvana vs Sylvester)

bootie_14_back

At Bootie I had a great time, met loads of great local bootleggers – some of the US’s best DJs and remixers – such as Adrian and Mysterious D, DJ Tripp, Partyben, Matt Hite, Dada and loads others….I was staying with DJ Jay-R – I still miss SF and hope to get back there soon. I was proud to be the first English bootlegger to play there (I think that’s right?) and I seem to have started a trend what with GHP, Payroll and Lionel Vinyl all going out to play since then! (not that I’m in their category, oh no…but I’m really proud that I was one of the early international guests at Bootie :-D) .

Smells Like Sylvester gets an honourable mention because it got me my airplay on XFM; and was my intro for Bootie. It’s Nirvana vs Sylvester ‘Mighty Real’ and the intro is Sandra Bernhard’s great tribute to the gold-lamed afro’d one. This is the rare full version played on the night, which mixes in Pansy Division’s ‘Smells Like Queer Spirit’ – the shorter version was the one played on XFM.

Bootie pt one – TripleSpin (Marilyn Manson vs Dead or Alive vs Hi Tek 3 featuring Ya Kid K)

bootie_14__front

The next two were done for Bootie – I DJed at Bootie in San Francisco in September 2004, was a big thing for me, my first international gig and it went down well…which is good cos I was shitting myself. 😉

Triple Spin is so called because it comprises a trilogy of ‘Spin’ tunes – the I-Blame-The-Toitles classic ‘Spin That Wheel’ by Hi Tek 3 featuring Ya Kid K over the top of Marilyn Manson’s ‘Spin Me Round (Like A Record) ‘ and the Dead or Alive original mixed in for good measure. What is it with Marilyn and goth-guitar cover versions? Anyway this is one of my faves…and then follows…
