New mashup videos on YouTube

Following the post of the tbc mashup videos to Youtube, here’s two Instamatic videos that are rather more upbeat – well sorta, the next one is more of a tbc track in all but name, but like a lot of recent mashups has not been posted here but has been posted over at Sowndhaus,

Joji vs P!NK What Glimpse Of Us – ostensibly about a empty relationship vs the same but also a cry for justice, becomes a song about the planet and climate change as the animals in the video look at us accusingly and say ‘what about us?’. With COP27 on the way and last night reading a great interview with Bjork and Greta Thunberg it was on my mind.

The allgator eye was the image from the Joji single so was the starting point, but I couldn’t find enough croc clips – so I diversified and it became something else.

More upbeat is this video for Something About The Wikka Cat (Evasions vs Doja Cat vs Daft Punk which is one of my favourite recent tracks, finally successfully making a Daft Punk track that works 100% and mixing in Evasions novelty funk tune, Wikka Wrap which is a fave of mine. Doja Cat was unknown to me until fairly recently, but ‘Say So’ is TOTAL disco so works with the Chic Good Times nods.

And the video? Well it’s just a tropical good time party, where I wish I was rather than damp cold grey England…

Back to YouTube – New Mashup Videos

I have neglected my old YouTube channel somewhat – I’ve done the odd Live stream but not many proper videos for my mashups. Feeling I should make some quick ones, and at first planning to just make simple artwork only videos, I got sucked into making visualisations, or simpler videos for my work. I have created 3 major videos in the past 24 hours, and two artwork ones. Here are the tbc ones, the Instamatic ones ar in another post.

I also haven’t been posting many of my works here or over at my mashup blog, just dumping them on Sowndhaus so good to dust them off and push them out there a bit more.

First up is American Dream Part 3 mashup (LCD Soundsystem vs Paul Simon vs Elvis vs Idlewild vs Suicide vs Taylor Swift vs MKTO) – but of course, this was the only one to get blocked, so a revisit to an old dusty Vimeo account as well!

All these videos are experiments in not using band or artist footage which tends to bring the blocks faster than you can say ‘Lego party’. I am using either longer shots or re-using footage and not getting too hung, or totally reframing the mashup with a new narrative.

And a simpler one, I found these falling leaves on Pexels so thought it was perfect for my ES vs ES mash, Autumn Man (Elliott Smith / Heatmiser vs Ed Sheeran). Surprised this hasn’t had more legs, it’s been mostly ignored – I preferred the Carpenters vs Elliott one but totally knew that the mood meshed perfectly with this one. I had a weird feeling it would be the one that would ‘fly’ but no, it’s the other one.which incidentally just got an artwork video.. Not sure that needs a full one.

DJNoNo Crumplstock 10 set

Crumplstock 10 - DJNoNo set Phoning In From The Apocalypse

There was a good reason why DJNoNo’s Crumplstock set was called ‘Phoning In From The Apocalypse’ was called that, an angry upbeat set – it was meant to be more positive and it is in parts with the Happy Hardcore, but the apocalyptic theme was there from the start I just amped it up.

I played a lot of originals, mashups, remixes, metal 8-bit and symphonic covers, bits from CONELRAD and Kids in the Hall, rave, breakbeat, 80’s doomy pop, and started with a Pansy Division track ‘Smells Like Queer Spirit’ for Pride/current events I’d heard the night before at Duckie. Good tunes for the end of the world….

There’s a few unreleased tracks in this Crumplstock set, the HardCure track ‘Let’s Go To A Whispering Forest’, NoNo Limits and a new demo using Wikka Wrap vs Doja Cat – and All My Lubbers totally violating the Twitch TOS, but fuck it.
