Again, a personal mashup about alienation, state of the world….and mental health.
DJNoNo’s Anti Angry set (starts 7 mins in) for the still-going Crumplstock 9 is up – yes didn’t take him weeks to post it! And he goes HARD and intense and fast – think silly plunderphonic mashcore, donk, Does It Bang?, gabba, breakcore, bootleg, white label, classical techno, even a bit of disco and strange Xtian music. And that’s just the danceable bits.
Extreme BPMs, dumb noise and very angry and a wee bit offensive. To anyone with ears, basically. Can you survive the DJNoNo Set Survival Challenge?
It’s made of WRONG. So it’s very crumpl. pure Crumplbangers! ;-(

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 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.
Again MrNoNo is too lazy to post this himself, so muggins here has to do it. He did leave a note:
“Brought to you by the Watermelon Marketing Board, why not leave home for a watermelon tonight? Exit Planet Pips, bring your girl a watermelon, or maybe your Chemical Brother some watermelon flavouring.”
No idea what that means.
Again for the 60+ years time difference Crumplbangers Discord Challenge, DJNoNo wandered in with some 78’s and a copy of Exit Planet Dust and made a Proper Old Skool Crumplbanger. There’s a track from 1925 – Savoy Havana Band – I’m Gonna Bring A Watermelon To My Girl To-Night and 1995 – The Chemical Brothers – Leave Home, 70 years difference. And some TED Talk rabbiting on about being too busy…I think DJNoNo didn’t like his work being called that, so he got in early…They have TED Talks in Nantwich now?
“Fuck electroswing”, says Mr NoNo. Yeah he’s not a fan since those posh twats in suits took it over.
(This is the original song that the Bonzo Dog Band coverered)
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.
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).
Instamatic – Ready or Not For The Afterglow (Take It Slowly) (Nextmen & Eva Lazarus vs Fugees vs Smash & Grab vs Fak Scratch & Mooncat)
Created for the Spoken Word challenge at Crumplbangers Discord, probably the first and only Nils Frahm mashup in existence?

This almost became a Captain Obvious track, because to me, the new one from Lil Nas X – Sun Goes Down is basically Wonderwall by Oasis? It was either this or the Verve’s Lucky Man, there’s a real Britpop vibe with this song about struggling as a queer teen in the closet – I can totally relate. Maybe because when I was a struggling queer teen, Britpop was my soundrack.
This is a real lighter in the air track! I made it with the first night of clubbing in mind in June….as a sort of drunken ‘everyone come together’ closer. And also a first – I have never done a Wonderwall mashup in nearly 20 years. Came together really quickly because I suspect someone will do it very shortly…like other Lil Nas X tracks I put it out there and just hope it’s in key 😛 I think this one is….
Thanks to IamJstncrdble for the acapella.
3rd place inthe Crumplbangers Discord ‘reverse’ challenge which was a hard one – use a reversed instrumental or acapella in a mashup. Not many things sound good reversed, and beats were a tricky issue…it was hard to get something listenable beyond 30 seconds of reversing, the novelty wears off fast.
I’ve always wanted to work with musical palindromes (music that plays the same backwards as well as forward) and although most of them are classical pieces, there are a few modern tracks like Boards of Canada’s Music Is Math from Geogaddi (an album full of Satanic Reverses – spooky reverse/backmasking songs – interestingly this doesn’t seem to have any). It’s like a mirror song, you can see it in the waveform, part backwards, part forwards.
So following the mirror theme, I looked for tracks that reference beginning and ends, Smashing Pumpkins and NIN didn’t work, but a new track by Crosses did. I knew nothing about Crosses til I found it, it’s the side project of Chino Moreno of the Deftones. And it’s a cover of Cause & Effect.
I also then found the Black Sabbath track, which together give it a doomier feel and something of a paean to the planet and it’s destruction and return to the ‘new normal’ as we come out of lockdown.
Is it the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? We need to repair the system, as Ozzy says…again a personal mashup from me about the status quo.
