Kodiak Moment Vol 2: Best Of Instamatic 2003-2008

So here finally is the second Kodiak Moment with my mashup work for the first 5 years – 2003-2008 as Instamatic and tbc..

Picking up where the first one left off with also a look into the pre-history of my first mashups – included is my third ever mashup, and there is earlier in the secret bonus section *only* with the full album download.

Includes: Exclusive unreleased bootlegs and annotations for each bootleg, extra bonus demos and alternate versions, and I have remixed and remastered many of them to make them all nice and shiny for 2020.

I have sourced 36 of the 38 tracks from lossless sources, many for the first time as they existed only as low-res MP3 on here.

It is like a bootleg box set!

And there is more to come in this set, I have deeply raked over the last 17 years of making mashups.

Download at my Bandcamp or over at the Bootleg Archive

Old tracks revisited / reposted

As part of the big cupboard cleaning mentioned in the main post, I found some old tbc tracks, including a redo I did of one of my Boards of Canada tracks, Saturday Sunshine (2012 Retweak) (Boards of Canada ‘Hey Saturday Sun’ vs Roy Ayers ‘Everybody Loves the Sunshine’) which had a re-rub a few years back, to give it a happier, sunnier sheen.

Early on, sometimes I’d abandon tracks and post them as they were…this happened to ‘I Try But The Words Weigh Too Much’ – Macy Gray’s ‘I Try…’ vs Kings of Convenience – ‘Weight of my Words (Four Tet Remix) – which was online in 2004 or 2005, as part of my old multiply site, but not since. Tuning issues, but then again that’s not always easy with Macy Gray…

Rare unreleased mashups (Sage Francis, Britney Spears, Fela Kuti, Sugarcubes, N.W.A. and more!)

Having a clear out of the dusty mashup cupboards at NoNo/RadioClash Towers, and found quite a few unfinished or finished but unreleased mashups, or stuff that was on my old Multiply site and never got reposted.

So I’ve uploaded some tracks that fell off Soundcloud, were never really posted/uploaded apart from GYBO, or demos and rarities as well as the other tracks you (don’t) know and (don’t) love. First few are from the GYBO Weekend Challenge where you had only 1-2 days to create them using one or both of the posted acapella(s) or instrumental(s), and so are a bit rough and ready, like demos – but quite good all the same. I tended to only post the winning entries (I won the Weekend Challenge twice, with Bollywood In Space and the first one, Fela Down The Chip Shop. I Heard You Were Ill was another entry, but didn’t win.

First up is Zombie Britney (Britney’s ‘Hold It Against Me’ vs T>Power’s ‘Blissed Out Snacking Zombies’) which was for Weekend Challenge #38 in 2011, wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but it works really well actually. Didn’t win though.

francis

Another for that challenge is Francis In The Desert which is Controlfreak ‘Desert Fox’ vs Sage Francis ‘Slow Down Ghandi’. Works pretty well, Controlfreak loved it – but it does go a little OOT towards the end, but remember all the challenges had to be done over a weekend.

swat

And from Challenge #14 is S.W.A.T – Sugar Cube With Attitude (Compton Hit) – Sugarcubes – Hit with N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton. This works really well, didn’t win though.

Another demo that’s been hanging around for ages (since 2008!), was on this site’s player but not for download (officially) and probably won’t be finished is Silence Anywhere, Depeche Mode vs Presets.

A friend was trying to do a mashup/remix album about bass, and so I did Alternate Justice using Altern-8, Dizzee Rascal and Justice. I think it words surprisingly well, if a bit rough in places. I never really did a Justice track I was happy with, actually apart from DJ Contaminations which tbh was partly a DJ Hero rip!. This is not perfect towards the end, and shows it’s unfinished state, but most of it shows old skool rave flavour!

Another long-lost mashup is another Depeche Mode one, favourite of the Parkade is Impact Mode (Orbital – Impact vs DM’s Just Can’t Get Enough). Had a few goes at this, it’s 99% there. I probably should’ve released it properly, but as ever I just lose interest! EDIT: I did finish this and you can hear it here.

And last but no means least is Star Wars Gurls, a track I’ve had a few goes at and like the last ‘demo’ is pretty much there but got lost in the, err, ‘rush’ *ahem*. It’s Meco’s Star Wars theme vs Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg – California Gurls. I was intending to make a video for this, but again that never happened…in a galaxy far, far away, maybe. EDIT – I also finished this, well as finished as it was going to be.

And don’t forget to check out the one unreleased and the other reposted ambient mashups over at the tbc site.

Losing My Sledge parody mashup (Michael Jackson vs Lipps Inc vs LCD Soundsystem) gets a video

Yes in time for Christmas – it’s a new remastered version of Losing My Sledge by TBC Poundsystem (myself and Jeb 50 Pound Note) – a Xmas cover version & mashup of LCD Soundsystem’s Losing My Edge – this time with remastered/remixed audio, and funky dancing Santa lipsync video with pink tinsel, fairy lights and other kitsch campness! Those with long memories will remember this from 2006 but not sure I posted it here – well here it is in much better remixed form!

Mashup also features MJ’s Don’t Stop If You Get Enough & Lipps Inc’s Funkytown, as well as sleighbells by moi and vocals by Jeb. It’s the first net release from Jeb’s Kuma-Chan records, KUMA 1000. More to come from Kuma-Chan – watch this space (well the links down below).

PRESSIES! Download the remixed 2012 track with a new dub instrumental b-side and amazing 4 page artwork by Jeb! Spread – upload – share – annoy neighbours, play over the turkey, dance like a santa-loon etc.

Happy Holidays From Tim and Jeb! And all at Kuma-Chan and Radio Clash! (same thing, LOL)

Captain Obvious – Madonna Has A Kiki (Madonna vs Scissor Sisters)

Madonna Has A Kiki cover

Captain Obvious Strikes Again! His latest mashup is so unapologetically gay it would spontaneously set a Chick-Fil-A on fire with it’s glamourous flamboyant hot mess campness!

It’s Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ vs Scissor Sisters ‘Let’s Have A Kiki’ – I so LOVE the Kiki track still, it’s not true so when I found the acapella I had to make it even camper. In fact camp as a row of tents but then so am I when at a Kiki 😉 BIG AIR MWAHS to Ronald Koenders and CjR for various *gorgeous* accessories.

Captain Obvious – Madonna Has A Kiki (Madonna vs Scissor Sisters)

BTW I re-created the Scissor Sisters Kiki artwork in under 30 minutes…it was the easiest thing about this!

Not my first Scissor Sisters mashup (I’ve done four others and a demo – Light of Pleasure, Comfortable Run, Mama Believe Me Now and Ghetto Sister Peach which became Ghetto Tits and Cowboy Mary and not my first Madonna mashup using a sneaky bit of Junior Vasquez either. Which strangely got ripped off by someone years ago but they’ve disappeared with their copy of my mashup with it, so.

EDIT – now with video!

tbc aka Instamatic – Her Breath Is The Wind (Rhiannon’s Breath) – Sia vs Fleetwood Mac

tbc aka Instamatic - Her Breath Is The Wind (Rhiannon's Breath) - Sia vs Fleetwood Mac rhiannons breath

A rarity a new mashup from me…a sequel of sorts to the Golden Mirror this I think works better…it’s Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon vs Sia’s Breathe Me, a simple A vs B but I think has a great ambient mood, and makes me think of birds and wind and welsh goddesses.

tbc aka Instamatic – Her Breath Is The Wind (Rhiannon’s Breath)

Imagery is provided from Egypt, a collage of photographs I took of birds at Abu Simbel – keeping it related, pagan wise 😉

EDIT: And it now has a video:

tbc aka Instamatic – the Golden Mirror (Elbow vs Fleetwood Mac)

tbc aka Instamatic - the Golden Mirror (Elbow vs Fleetwood Mac) thegoldenmirror

Not sure if this should belong in the tbc or the Instamatic realm, it’s ambient so filed it under tbc. I’d thought I’d posted this, actually it was only posted on Twitter and Facebook just before I left for Egypt in November.

This is a rarity for me – an Elbow bootleg (!) given my “love” for that band but the music is really good here and bonus you don’t get to hear Guy Garvey wail. I’ve paired ‘Mirror Ball’ with Fleetwood Mac’s Gold Dust Woman, gives it an eery edge and as the original blurb for this said on Facebook it’s dedicated to Hathor, Mami Wata and Hatshepsut.
