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…

Instamatic Katamari Sound Machine (Rhythm Is Gonna Funk You) (Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine vs Katamari Forever) mashup bootleg latin bastard pop Senor Coconut

Last week’s challenge was video game tunes, so of course I chose my favourite games – although in this case, it’s my favourite game soundtrack, I’ve never played Katamari Damacy or sequels!

Yes this is Senor Coconut remixing Katamari on the Funk it’s on the game soundtrack for Katamari Forever…and works perfectly with Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

I wanted to do a mashup with Katamari on the Rocks, this is my third attempt since the 00’s, but it’s just too busy. So hence Senor Cocounut’s more stripped back take on Shibuya-Kei (this in fact probably was my first musical experience of that genre back in the mid 00’s) worked better.

Merengue! Cha Cha Cha!

Fun fact: as an 80’s teen I was a MASSIVE Gloria Estefan err, fan. Had several of her – well Miami Sound Machine’s – 80’s albums including Anything For You that included ‘Rhythm…’.

Making her into the King (Queen?) of All The Cosmos is all kinds of funny though for the artwork….
