Run The Jungle (Run The Jewels vs Dwarde & Tim Reaper)

Run The Jungle (Run The Jewels vs Dwarde & Tim Reaper) mashup bootleg drum and bass bastard pop

Another lost mashup – this Jungle/drum and bass remake of the then current Ooh La La by RTJ got played on the podcast in demo form in 2020 but never released.

Here is the updated and tidied up version, it’s a lot cleaner and has an ending, of sorts!

Over Reckoning (Fleetwood Mac vs Radiohead)

tbc aka Instamatic - Over Reckoning (Fleetwood Mac vs Radiohead) mashup bootleg bastard pop ambient AOR

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 😉

End Credits (Well Happier) (Billie Eilish vs Taylor Swift)

Rolling the credits on 2021…as Billie Eilish says, Fuck You to 2021.

tbc aka Instamatic End Credits (Well Happier) (Billie Eilish vs Taylor Swift) mashup bootleg bastard pop downtempo cover 2021 All Too Well Happier That Ever red scarf man underwater

There was a Crumplbangers Discord challenge last week to make an ‘ending’ mashup for 2021 using only 2021 sources, so I decided to use two tracks I loved and actually only heard this year – Taylor’s Version of ‘All Too Well’ and Billie Eilish’s hit ‘Happier Than Ever’.

I realised while I was tweaking it what it was about, I lost a close longterm friend a year ago over his behaviour which had been a problem for a long time, but I had been dealing with it alone, keeping it under wraps. He then chose to escalate it to the circle of mutual friends and tread over my boundaries, which was far from acceptable. It wasn’t acceptable to begin with, but I felt if I could control it, keep the peace, it’d be fine (stupidly), but as soon as it broke those bounds I couldn’t really see how I could carry on pretending it’s OK anymore.

Yet I never closed the door and made it clear what my boundaries were but that he could contact me when he wanted to be a friend and be there for me. Sadly a year later it’s still total radio silence, so this has very deep personal meaning since the anger at what he did is still there, and the sadness of that loss was basically my 2021.

But also feeling better without that negativity, because I didn’t realise how much manipulation had gone on til I stopped and had to explain it to that mutual friend. I realised how much it was affecting my mood, it was a weight lifted. To be constantly aware that any positive thing about myself would be pounced on as ‘bragging’ or get bitchy criticisms when drunk I could not answer to because then the tantrums and sulking would start.

So this is the end credits on 2021 but also unless a miracle happens, probably rolling the sunset end credits on that friendship.

BTW this combo has been done before (as far as I can find) but only as the reverse – Taylor Swift’s vocals over Billie Eilish’s instrumental, so I think this is an original and not a reboot.

P.S. All original artwork, well the photos are CC Zero – background from Engin Akyurt and the red man is from khezez, but the montage and post production is all mine. It took a lot to find an image relating to the ‘red scarf’ of All Too Well, the man overboard is my friend (or me), and the underwater part is from video of Happier Than Ever.

I do think about these things far too much! Then again, looking at Billie Elish’s video and Taylor Swift’s short film, so do they.

New Order vs Madonna – Nothing True Really Matters (Instamatic Mashup)

Instamatic - Nothing True Really Matters (New Order vs Madonna) mashup bootleg bastard pop Nothing Really Matters True Faith
Madonna in Squished By A Giant Gold Leaf SHOCKAH!

This is a mashup for the current Crumpbangers Discord Weekly Challenge which this week is set by reconthuse – he wanted us to take a favourite mashup, then reboot it using the same artists (or album, although that rule has been relaxed) in an adjacent alternate reality combination.

I chose Party Ben’s Bizarre Light Triangle (Madonna – Ray of Light vs New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle), and strictly True Faith wasn’t on the same album as it was non-album single (but it was on Substance and the Deluxe version of Brotherhood later) but Nothing Really Matters was on the Ray of Light album.

It bangs, and I think it works really well, I was asking myself ‘What Would Party Ben Do?’ when doing this. And ironically it’s almost a reboot in itself, because I came up with the combo then later found back in 2010 Eden did this combo but as a DJ club remix with the full tracks, not a A vs B mashup as you can hear it is very different.

Let me know if the Grand Mashup Council thinks I should credit this in the title as a reboot – I mention it in the comments in the MP3 & Sowndhaus, but I personally think it’s a stretch to say it’s a direct reboot, but it’s a grey area…

Captain Obvious Adele Sevenfold (Dear Adele) (Adele vs Avenged Sevenfold) mashup bootleg bastard pop diva country metal

Return of the Cap’n!

An obvious mash of country diva metal – of Easy on Me vs Avenged Sevenfold’s Dear God. That Easy on Me track works really well with country tunes.

I had more fun doing the artwork tbh. OBVIOUS!

One for the Tiktoks methinks…not that I’ll post there, I won’t past the age bar 😛

Thanks to Vixoriadrift and Reconthuse for timing advice on the first version which was slightly off beat – please download again!

EDIT- and I made a video – woah….long time not making one of those! Boo video blocked on YouTube….another DMCA appeal with SME. Always SME!

While waiting for that appeal, here’s Vimeo:

High & Dry Feeling (Bo Burnham vs Radiohead)

Lewis Wake’s has released ‘Outside’ a mashup album of songs from Bo’s moving (if tonally weird) Netflix special Inside.

I was surprised my favourite song ‘That Funny Feeling’ wasn’t included (I like it so much it’s featured on the next podcast, the list show #2), so I’ve given it the Radiohead rock treatment.

Again, a personal mashup about alienation, state of the world….and mental health.

Taylor Swift vs Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Instamatic on Summer Booty 2021

Taylor Swift vs Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Instamatic Summertime Shake mashup bootleg bastard pop

Just a reminder I have a track on this year’s Summer Booty from DJ Useo – very proud of it, it’s called ‘Summertime Shake’ and it’s Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ vs DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince Kool and the Gang sampling ‘Summertime’ – the whole 3 album set is good, a lot of summer jams (and one winter jam ;-( ) – you can download it here https://audioboots.org/Albums/SB2021/

Useo asked me to be on the album which is really kind, but nothing came to me until the night of the deadline. I was going through tracks for last week’s Crumplbangers challenge and left Summertime playing while I was listening to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off and went ‘hold on…this works!’. I am a massive Kool & The Gang fan (I even own a 7″ of Jungle Boogie, blame Pulp Fiction for that) and Summertime is basically Summer Madness so it was Kool and the Gang by proxy for me..

You can see the cover I made for it above.

Driving Miss Crazy (Olivia Rodrigo vs Patsy Cline)

tbc vs Instamatic - Driving Miss Crazy (Olivia Rodrigo vs Patsy Cline) - Crumplbangers discord challenge mashup bootleg bastard pop country pop

A track from last week’s Crumplbangers Discord Challenge, it made second place! And I think one of my best ones, The challenge was to use sources 60 years or more apart – this was almost exactly 60 bar a few months, 1961 vs 2021, Patsy Cline – Crazy vs Olivia Rodrigo – Driver’s License. I am a massive Patsy Cline fan, her early stuff is eerie, so I’ve always wanted to do a Patsy mash. And Olivia works well with Patsy…

And I couldn’t resist the Driving Miss Daisy pun, I realised it made a better title than ‘Crazy Driving’ when I was doing the artwork so it got renamed.

Fugees Reggae Mashup Unlockdown Summer #1 – Ready or Not for the Afterglow

Nextmen & Eva Lazarus - Afterglow Dub Fugees - Ready or Not Smash & Grab - Ready or Not Fak Scratch & Mooncat - Ready Or Not mashup bastard pop ragga jungle cover Reggae Mashup Unlockdown Summer #1

It increasingly looks like the unlocking of the lockdown will be delayed…which makes this yearning ragga jungle call to return back to clubbing either very topical or very redundant. Created for the Crumplbangers Reggae Challenge, I loved the new reggae cover of 2013’s Wilkinson single Afterglow by Nextmen featuring Eva Lazarus so much, I made a ragga jungle version!

This calls back to DJ Zinc’s Fugees 2003 bootleg by recreating it with two other Ready or Not sampling jungle tracks with the original Enya-sampling track. Are you ready for the Afterglow? Or not? Take It Slowly (like the probable date for opening up).
