DJNoNo – Ballroom remastered, big band jazz vs hip-hop

An Xmas Eve treat – a remastered lossless version of DJNoNo’s 2015 Ballroom EP, my silly concept ‘album’ mixing big band jazz, exotica, latin jazz, easy listening, bossa nova, cha cha, samba, swing, space age etc with hip-hop and rhythm and blues. It was supposed to be the first DJNoNo album but never really worked like that, too short anyway.

Planned as the first DJNoNo album in 2005, I finished Stripper Jackson and Cha Cha Like It’s Hot to a chorus of mass apathy so the project got shelved, although most of these tracks were planned back then.

Given that ten years later I was retiring – it didn’t last long – I revisited it and completed it with a few extra tracks – the Death Grips is definitely one of those as D.G. didnt exist in 2005! But the rest are pretty much as they were planned in 2005.

Listening back reminds me how I hated the humourless electro-swing toffs that came later and stole all of our ideas and then claimed they were there first! Big reason why it took ten years, didn’t want to touch electro-swing with a vintage antique barge pole!

I was surprised no-one had done this project in that period – given the rise of Strictly Come Dancing I thought it inevitable that someone would do it, saving me the bother. Nope.

If you like this then check out the first DJNoNo album proper.

DJNoNo’s First Album – Accordion Hero

DJNoNo’s First Album – Accordion Hero! (well if you don’t count Ballroom as an album, it is more like mini-album or long EP…that will be posted after this for the full DJNo ‘experience’). 16 years in the making it covers the best and a little of the rest of 2004-2020.

Silly mashups, bastard pop, soundclown, or crumplebangers – take your pick of label he spans the all! from the little red bootleg robot. Mixing accordions, hip hop, drum and bass, Julie Andrews, kid’s themes, rude songs, Muppets, cheesy golden oldies, dub reggae, rave and happy hardcore, balllroom big band ALL together! And making a totally dumb mess while doing it.

30 tracks including 3 bonuses and 5 unreleased or rare tracks that never made it past the podcast or a fleeting blog mention! Now all in HQ lossless – and only 3 of them are from MP3, the rest have been painstakingly sourced from lossless, remastered or tweaked/re-exported.

Available to download at my Bandcamp or the Bootleg Archive.

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!

Final Mashups #4 – DJNoNo – Ballroom

DJNoNo – Ballroom mashups big band jazz easy listening cha cha bossanova Strictly Ballroom Come Dancing

Planned 10 years ago, the Ballroom EP (now album) has been a long time coming…two of the tracks were released (here in a remastered or better quality form) but the rest laid in the Unfinished folder.

Mixing ballroom music – big band, jazz, bossa nova, exotica, swing, easy listening and classical pops – with hip hop and r n’ b years before the term electroswing was invented, I’m surprised no-one has done an album concept like this in the last decade?

Instamatic’s Greatest Misses – a retrospective

Kodiak Moment - the Instamatic CD - Artwork by Pheugoo

‘Kodiak Moment’ promotional Instamatic CD – Artwork by Pheugoo

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!)
  5. Kylie’s Ass is a Spaceship (Kylie vs SFA vs NERD)
  6. Still haven’t Found It (Negativland live vs String Quartet)
  7. Blancmange Milkshake (Kelis vs Blancmange)
  8. Satan Bush Blair (Bootie edit – original featured over at Bushwhacked)
  9. Ludakriss (Kid Carpet intro)(here’s the original with the Kid Carpet ‘Jump’ intro)
  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)
  15. Egyptian Jet (Bangles vs Jet -a month later a mix of this appeared on 7″ – dunno if it was mine?)
  16. Shannon’s Knuckles (Shannon vs Rankie Knuckles)
  17. Madison Heartbreak (Maisonettes vs Madison Avenue)
  18. Brightside Slippy (never totally finished since I was afflicted by a sudden inexplicable hatred of the Killers)
  19. Fire (Bootie edit of a minimix – DJ Zebra mixed into Fire mix (Grandmaster Scott vs Radio4 vs Electric6 vs Trammps)
  20. Jump minimix – Ludakriss / Jumpx2/ Renegade Trouble – first time online! (Made for Uprising 3.5, also played in part at Bastard –

  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…)
