DJNoNo’s First Album – Accordion Hero

DJNoNo’s First Album – Accordion Hero! (well if you don’t count Ballroom as an album, it is more like mini-album or long EP…that will be posted after this for the full DJNo ‘experience’). 16 years in the making it covers the best and a little of the rest of 2004-2020.

Silly mashups, bastard pop, soundclown, or crumplebangers – take your pick of label he spans the all! from the little red bootleg robot. Mixing accordions, hip hop, drum and bass, Julie Andrews, kid’s themes, rude songs, Muppets, cheesy golden oldies, dub reggae, rave and happy hardcore, balllroom big band ALL together! And making a totally dumb mess while doing it.

30 tracks including 3 bonuses and 5 unreleased or rare tracks that never made it past the podcast or a fleeting blog mention! Now all in HQ lossless – and only 3 of them are from MP3, the rest have been painstakingly sourced from lossless, remastered or tweaked/re-exported.

Available to download at my Bandcamp or the Bootleg Archive.

Happy XMash & A Kodiak Moment New Year

Part of a series called ‘let’s make the life hard of those who finished their festive mashup compilations in October’, – finally live, the Xmash compilation new and old Christmas Classics in ‘high’ quality – well we are in part talking DJNoNo here so quality is extremely subjective – but two new mashups from me, including one that has only just been finished and not previously released – the Massive Attack vs Greg Lake one.

Yes I made Massive Attack’s Teardrop simultaneously upbeat and festive and more depressing…how strange the change from major to minor. It is very much a Lockdown Xmas Coronacoaster bittersweet track…

Some old classics and two new mashups now in high quality in a single downloadable package! From bah humbug mashups and downtempo chilled dubby ambient mixes to upbeat drum and bass and party tunes, to a set of covers by TBC Poundsystem – and there even is a Secret Santa gift if you download the whole album!

Have a Happy Christmas and New Year in lockdown, and be as safe as possible…it is going to be a weird one, and this one goes out to those who have a love/hate thing with this time of year. I see you – and even better I have warped festive tunes for you!

Download at Bandcamp or over at the Bootleg Archive.

Final Mashups #6 – Imperial Nanny (Star Wars vs Julie Andrews)

DJNoNo Imperial Nanny (John Williams vs Julie Andrews) mashup cover

And last but not least, here’s my second Star Wars mashup, this was started in 2005 as part of the ill-fated Boot In 60 Seconds project, but never really worked, was a bit of a car-crash. It was semi-released as part of that mix, and other places, but this is the final version.

It combines Spoonful of Sugar from the Disney movie Mary Poppins (topical!) with John Williams Imperial March theme, as Orbital and 2 Bad Mice as the droids you aren’t looking for!

Appropriate to end on something complete silly…Would love to say doing these has rekindled my love of mashups…but no, although fun to see these finally see the light of day, it’s also reminded me what a faff it is.

So that’s me out – bye! Thanks all for listening over the years.

Final mashups #3 – Impact Mode (Depeche Mode vs Presets)

Instamatic  Impact Mode Depeche Mode Presets mashup

Started 6 (!) years ago, this mashup of Depeche Mode’s Just Can’t Get Enough vs Orbital – Impact (Live) has been featured on mixes, usually from the Parkade but never released – until now. I was never happy with any mashup it has to be told, despite what some people say – stuff that got released either was ‘oh sod it – I’m so fed up with this, that’ll do’ or in some cases had been hanging around for years, and on the 3rd, 4th or 5th iteration.

I estimate I didn’t release almost half of my mashups or more because I wasn’t happy…sometimes I think to their detriment, some of these are perfectly fine. I got rather obsessed with quality – partly because the disdain some of the mashups community showed me and my work, I wanted to ‘show them’. Silly really.

No-one ever did the 30 minute mashup in fact (good ones anyway) – that was a lie, I call bullshit on everyone who said that, you knew they’d spent hours if not days on it. That’s the kind of weird competitiveness that was rife in GYBOland…and beyond.

This one is dedicated to the Parkade and all the DJs there.
