Kodiak Moment 3: Best of Instamatic & Captain Obvious 2008 – ​2011

Instamatic Captain Obvious - Kodiak Moment 3 cover

The Rise of The Aliases! I wasn’t exactly a stranger to aliases before but something about the second explosion of work around 2008-2010 meant I was wanting to branch out and not get bogged down with past failures while I was learning…many of which I had to fix on Volume 2!

instamatic, Captain Obvious, Dj cONTaMInAtioNs, Mashbusters, timbearland, Buyrite Soundsystem, they are all here, including never released originals for the first 72 which got hacked around in the final mix -and the receipts on what happened there – and various album projects I was part of like APC’s ‘We All Kissed A Girl’ or ones organised like the Joe Strummmer one This One’s For Joe and Fleetwood Mix.

DJ Hero and GYBO challenges get a look-in too, as does a lot of dubstep which ages this compilation. And like Missy and Em in the last one there are a few artists I mashed once and never again but were ever-present – Deadmau5’s Ghosts n’ Stuff, Flo-Rida’s Low, Eric Prydz’s Pjanoo, Ting Ting’s Shut Up And Let Me Go, The Gossip’s Standing In The Way of Control, White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army, that Duck Sauce track….

Surprised at how uptempo this is, very much aimed at Bootie at this point, and how difficult some of it was to master – I was learning Ableton which strangely made it harder to mix and tweak since although I still use that software, I moved platforms since so many plugins don’t work on my Mac – and I was struggling with using electro house – Daft Punk, Justice etc which has all these mid-range frequencies that clash with vocals.

Also I set T-Racks not only to stun but quite often it’s ‘Kill’ setting – this was the middle of the loudness wars! Hence why I remastered gentler versions here – I don’t like my work to be that bricked, even if it does ‘cut through’ dancefloors. 

36 tracks, mostly remastered and for the first time in lossless high quality – 25 album tracks and 11 bonuses with demos, alternate versions and extra tracks that didn’t make the album cut.

Raiders of the Lost Mashup 2: Blue Robot Love (Robyn and Royksopp vs Candi Staton vs New Order)

Raiders of the Lost Mashup 2: Blue Robot Love (Robyn and Royksopp vs Candi Staton vs New Order) blue robot

The second in this series is a history of many versions dating back to when Röyksopp ft Robyn’s ‘Girl and the Robot’ was current in 2009, mashing it with Blue Monday by New Order and Candi Staton’s You Got The Love…the problem sometimes is you do a mashup and it almost works but something about the acapella bugs you, in this case it’s being driven mad by the bells, the bells! from the Candi Staton original ‘You Got The Love’ acapella. I did toy with using Florence and the Machine’s version but one listen revealed how horribly out of tune she is so I wasn’t going to touch that with a bargepole.

Also in this case I did the demo and stupidly didn’t save that version, so about version 2 or 3 I actually preferred the original, with no way of going back – hence why I include the demo here, it’s less structured and rough but there was something about the production I preferred and had a lot of difficulty trying to recreate! Also included is the Dub version with no Candi Staton…which is the 3rd version, so the timeline is Demo – 1st version, Dub – 3rd version, the final version is 4th. A version excursion so to speak! I’d listen to the final 4th version first…
