Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes / Philip Glass Animals

A double shot of downtempo punnery again for the Crumplbangers Discord Challenge – it’s the only reason I make mashups nowadays seemingly!

One Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes – a combo I am surprised has not been done before, and the clever pun of Philip Glass Animals, after the New York composer and the London artist.

Did someone say Fleetwood Mac? What would the Fox Say? Well he’d say Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes is the shiz. If rather horizontal.

Also some cultured Rime of the Ancient Mariner engravings by Gustav Dore as the artwork. Ooh fancy! If I ever do that Fleetwood Mac remix album I’ve been threatening for literal decades, this will be on it.

And here is the Philip Glass vs Glass Animals downtempo mashup no-one was asking for! (Well the challenge did say genre clash was important, and nothing is more genre clash than modern classical /soundtrack vs EDM pop?).

Heatwaves is a surprising jam, with a very odd video about living and performing in a lockdown…yes the PTSD of that is basically staining all my work now, like a grain running through it all.

Over Reckoning (Fleetwood Mac vs Radiohead)

A mashup I started and pretty much finshed in 2021 for a Crumplbangers Challenge and never released. I rediscovered it yesterday on my backup MP3 player and went ‘why did I never release this?!’

It’s not the first Radiohead vs Fleetwood Mac mashup I’ve done, not even the first vs Christine McVie (Surprise Daddy is the first)! But it’s my first using Reckoner and Over and Over, and has a real vibe.

I even snuck in the Tusk dog on the artwork 😉

Daft Punk Everywhere (Daft Punk vs Fleetwood Mac)

I did this mashup of Digital Love vs Fleetwood Mac – Everywhere back in November, and hung onto to it although it got debuted on the Radio Clash podcast. But now DP are no more it seemed the right time to release it in their honour. Salute!

P.S. this isn’t the only Everywhere mashup I am working on…or indeed the only FM mashup generally. Depends how many work but was thinking of working on an album or EP of them.

Kodiak Moment 3: Best of Instamatic & Captain Obvious 2008 – ​2011

Instamatic Captain Obvious - Kodiak Moment 3 cover

The Rise of The Aliases! I wasn’t exactly a stranger to aliases before but something about the second explosion of work around 2008-2010 meant I was wanting to branch out and not get bogged down with past failures while I was learning…many of which I had to fix on Volume 2!

instamatic, Captain Obvious, Dj cONTaMInAtioNs, Mashbusters, timbearland, Buyrite Soundsystem, they are all here, including never released originals for the first 72 which got hacked around in the final mix -and the receipts on what happened there – and various album projects I was part of like APC’s ‘We All Kissed A Girl’ or ones organised like the Joe Strummmer one This One’s For Joe and Fleetwood Mix.

DJ Hero and GYBO challenges get a look-in too, as does a lot of dubstep which ages this compilation. And like Missy and Em in the last one there are a few artists I mashed once and never again but were ever-present – Deadmau5’s Ghosts n’ Stuff, Flo-Rida’s Low, Eric Prydz’s Pjanoo, Ting Ting’s Shut Up And Let Me Go, The Gossip’s Standing In The Way of Control, White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army, that Duck Sauce track….

Surprised at how uptempo this is, very much aimed at Bootie at this point, and how difficult some of it was to master – I was learning Ableton which strangely made it harder to mix and tweak since although I still use that software, I moved platforms since so many plugins don’t work on my Mac – and I was struggling with using electro house – Daft Punk, Justice etc which has all these mid-range frequencies that clash with vocals.

Also I set T-Racks not only to stun but quite often it’s ‘Kill’ setting – this was the middle of the loudness wars! Hence why I remastered gentler versions here – I don’t like my work to be that bricked, even if it does ‘cut through’ dancefloors. 

36 tracks, mostly remastered and for the first time in lossless high quality – 25 album tracks and 11 bonuses with demos, alternate versions and extra tracks that didn’t make the album cut.
