Dark Dreams (Fleetwood Mac vs Sparklehorse and Dangermouse)

darkdreams cover

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.

I’m in the Bootie Top 10!

My mashup ‘Her Breath is the Wind’ – (Fleetwood Mac’s Rhiannon vs Sia’s Breathe Me) made the latest Bootie Top 10 – well 20 since this is a bumper March/April edition – and love the comment: ‘This one has “late-night closing song” written all over it. Gorgeously epic.’ *blush*

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?

Her Breath Is The Wind (Rhiannon’s Breath) – Sia vs Fleetwood Mac

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.

Imagery is provided from Egypt, a collage of photographs I took of birds at Abu Simbel – keeping it related, pagan wise 😉

EDIT: And it now has a video:

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.

As part of my Fleetwood Mac mashup album ‘Fleetwood Mix’ I’ve got a new track out called ‘Go Your Own Steinway‘ which is Eric Prydz ‘Pjanoo’ (Fred Falke mix) vs Go Your Own Way.

Also included is the original version of ‘White Witch Dub’ which you can get the later ‘Dubmatic’ version on this very site!
