Happy XMash & A Kodiak Moment New Year

Part of a series called ‘let’s make the life hard of those who finished their festive mashup compilations in October’, – finally live, the Xmash compilation new and old Christmas Classics in ‘high’ quality – well we are in part talking DJNoNo here so quality is extremely subjective – but two new mashups from me, including one that has only just been finished and not previously released – the Massive Attack vs Greg Lake one.

Yes I made Massive Attack’s Teardrop simultaneously upbeat and festive and more depressing…how strange the change from major to minor. It is very much a Lockdown Xmas Coronacoaster bittersweet track…

Some old classics and two new mashups now in high quality in a single downloadable package! From bah humbug mashups and downtempo chilled dubby ambient mixes to upbeat drum and bass and party tunes, to a set of covers by TBC Poundsystem – and there even is a Secret Santa gift if you download the whole album!

Have a Happy Christmas and New Year in lockdown, and be as safe as possible…it is going to be a weird one, and this one goes out to those who have a love/hate thing with this time of year. I see you – and even better I have warped festive tunes for you!

Masters of Mash interview with PimpDaddySupreme

Pimpdaddysupremeย  PDSMix Masters of mash interview screenshot with Instamatic

Just a reminder that I’ll be talking to beardmeister Pimpdaddysupreme who is interviewing me part of his Masters of Mash series (who? me?) for 2 hours from 7pm BST this Wednesday 27th May (there might be something special if you turn up early though ๐Ÿ˜‰ at his Twitch – PDSMix.

Pretty sure we’ll be talking mashups/bootlegs/bastard pop history, my background history and firsts, Bastard and UK bootleg scene, Bootie, this very blog and podcast, Bootleg Archive, videos and mashups I’ve done…unless we get distracted by our wonderful beards that is! ๐Ÿ˜‰

A lot of tea will be dished (and cake, plenty of cake unless I eat it first). Be there or be somewhere else with a lot less beards. And where’s the fun in that?

Quickie #1: Fela Down The Chippy (Swears He’s Hot) – Fela Kuti vs Hot Chip

Quickie #1: Fela Down The Chippy (Swears He's Hot) - Fela Kuti vs Hot Chip felachippy

First quickie mash as part of Jez CMP’s Weekend Challenge (to create a bootleg in a weekend) and as I don’t release things enough (sit on them for months > years) I thought like the CO bootleg to just get this out there to the usual deafening silence ๐Ÿ˜›

The instrumental given was Hot Chip’s ‘One Pure Thought’ and it’s afrobeat drums reminds me of Fela Kuti, the king of Afrobeat, so here it is mashed with ‘Lady’ and a little bit of ‘Schuffering and Schmiling’. Given the sources probably about 0.5 people will get it, but if it makes one person (or 0.5 of one) check out Fela’s back catalogue such as Black President then job’s a good ‘un.

Oh and usual pop service will continue shortly ๐Ÿ˜‰

A new mashup for Pride – Standing in the Way of Jack White (Gossip vs Jack White)

Standing in the Way of Jack White cover

Just a quick one which I held back from playing in Saarbruecken, but it being Pride Month it seemed appropriate to release it, it being The Gossip’s expression of defiance about gay marriage and rights ‘Standing in the Way of Control’ vs The White Stripes ‘Seven Nation Army’ remixed in naughty bootleg form by Tim Deluxe. Oh and a little of Jack White berating hipsters not listening to the Greenhorns at a live show, on cue and amazingly perfectly in time with the music, preacher style. I was going for a very much club/DJ production on this, quite proud of how it sounds, and the little cutups and loops of the vocals. Would sound great from a Pride float *nudge nudge*

Standing in the Way of Jack White (The Gossip ‘Standing in the Way of Control’ vs ‘7 Nation Army’ – White Stripes Tim Deluxe remix)

Special thanks to Ian Fondue on this one, because him dragging me to Kaleidoscope and hearing the bassline of 7 Nation Army on their fairly dodge PA inspired this bootleg.

Florida Ghost Tour (Flo-Rida vs Deadmau5)

floridaghosttour

One of the new tunes I played in Saarbruecken *cough* sorry DJNoNo played in Saarbruecken – was this new one – I’d not heard Deadmau5’s ‘Ghost n’ Stuff’ – great spooky electro action a la Phantom – but when I did and heard his great Salt n’ Pepa bootleg I thought I could go one better – so here’s one of my guilty pleasures, Low by Flo-Rida with Deadmau5’s ‘Ghost n’ Stuff’ appropriately called ‘Florida Ghost Tour’

Ground Shelter (Hope & Fear) – two topical mashups (Rolling Stones vs Stereo MCs vs Fun Boy 3 vs Dubstep)

Ground Shelter (Hope & Fear) - two topical mashups (Rolling Stones vs Stereo MCs vs Fun Boy 3 vs Dubstep) groundshelter fear

(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 (Hope) Stereo MC’s ‘Ground Level’ vs Rolling Stones ‘Gimme Shelter’ vs Benga ‘Lightbulb’

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!

Instamatic – White Witch Dub (Skream vs Fleetwood Mac)

White Witch Dub

Yes it’s like buses, you wait for bootlegs for ages then several come at once ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ever wondered what Fleetwood Mac would sound dubstep style? Well click below to find out!

White Witch Dub (Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon vs Skream – Dub Period – apols to both!)

First heard in it’s original form on Skip to the End, this is quite a different sort of boot from me – dubby, moody and atmospheric; and about a mythological Welsh (Dub) Queen…with a lot of dubby production from yours truly, with some help from that Skream bloke ๐Ÿ˜€

And also has an accompanying video:

Spook! (Count von Count vs Dillinja vs Aphrodite)

the-bride-of-monster-mashup-halloween-frankenstein

Scary – Ah’ve been featchurred on a Halloween Monster mashup bootleg thingummy called ‘Bride of Monster Mash‘ or summat, with a nu DJNoNo track – ‘County Sound‘ with MC Count von Count chattin’ over Dillinja and Aphroditee-hee. Chek it!

Also kickin’ da classix are DJ B.C., Urn Monkey, Fett and the dog, Hurleyburd, Pilch-hard, Meestah F-A-B, the boys from Essex and Cheeky and soulcoffin & many more homies I can’t get tha names right eether….all well good doh.

Dunno why asthmatic ducks are largin’ it on da homepage though…is that a new moosikal stylee? Very Count Duck-u-like.

And now da peepz over at Boing Boing have bigged it up with my track as their fave! BRAPBRAPBRAP!!!!

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…
