Final Mashups #4 – DJNoNo – Ballroom

DJNoNo – Ballroom mashups big band jazz easy listening cha cha bossanova Strictly Ballroom Come Dancing

Planned 10 years ago, the Ballroom EP (now album) has been a long time coming…two of the tracks were released (here in a remastered or better quality form) but the rest laid in the Unfinished folder.

Mixing ballroom music – big band, jazz, bossa nova, exotica, swing, easy listening and classical pops – with hip hop and r n’ b years before the term electroswing was invented, I’m surprised no-one has done an album concept like this in the last decade?

Dedicated to Mr Fab, Evolution Control Committee and all the Crumplebangers Crew.

Burn Your Radio (Leftfield vs Queen and Public Enemy) – new mashup!

I wasn’t dead, only sleeping 😉 Just wanted to come back with something good and I think this might do the trick…

I played this at Bastard to end my recent set, seemed to get a good response so I thought I would release it into the wild – this is the mastered and slightly tweaked version. Also think it might have been played at Bootie (?). Definitely one for the dancefloor – it was inspired by podcasting, and especially the Radio Clash podcast I do.

Includes Queen – “Radio GaGa”, Leftfield “Open Up” and Public Enemy “Burn Hollywood Burn”
