I did this mashup of Daft Punk – 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 Daft Punk 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.
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.
No you’re not seeing things, yes I’ve still stopped doing mashups – but I thought I’d finish and post the mashups I was working on when I downed tools…some of them are too good to just leave on my hard drive forever!
So the first one is one of two planned follow-ups to Her Breath Is The Wind from 3 years back (!), this time with Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams – which I feel a lot of mashups and remixes miss the more darker, deeper, psychedelic and trippier possibilities of that track. So I paired it with ‘Everytime I’m With You’ from one of my favourite albums, Dark Night Of The Soul – Sparklehorse (RIP) and Dangermouse’s amazing collaboration with David Lynch.
This is a hybrid of mashup and remix really, using both parts of the original and extra sparkles added by me. This will be available for download for a while…maybe Soundcloud if I can find an account I don’t mind being nixed.
This one is dedicated to Mark Linkous and Vic Chesnutt.
Watch this space because it seems the last 2-3 mashups bar the last (which was actually created before all of these, just to confuse!) have a theme and the next one is in keeping, I hope it goes down as well as that one! Certainly temped to do Fleetwood Mix 2, Electric Boogaloo on my own at this rate…
Thanks A+D! And I of course will be attending Bootie London in a week’s time – see you all there?
A rarity a new mashup from me…a sequel of sorts to the Golden Mirror this I think works better…it’s Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon vs Sia’s Breathe Me, a simple A vs B but I think has a great ambient mood, and makes me think of birds and wind and welsh goddesses.
Not sure if this should belong in the tbc or the Instamatic realm, it’s ambient so filed it under tbc. I’d thought I’d posted this, actually it was only posted on Twitter and Facebook just before I left for Egypt in November.
This is a rarity for me – an Elbow bootleg (!) given my “love” for that band but the music is really good here and bonus you don’t get to hear Guy Garvey wail. I’ve paired ‘Mirror Ball’ with Fleetwood Mac’s Gold Dust Woman, gives it an eery edge and as the original blurb for this said on Facebook it’s dedicated to Hathor, Mami Wata and Hatshepsut.
Yes it’s like buses, you wait for bootlegs for ages then several come at once 😉
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 😀
