Katamari Sound Machine (Rhythm Is Gonna Funk You) (Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine vs Katamari Forever)

Instamatic Katamari Sound Machine (Rhythm Is Gonna Funk You) (Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine vs Katamari Forever) mashup bootleg latin bastard pop Senor Coconut

Last week’s challenge was video game tunes, so of course I chose my favourite games – although in this case, it’s my favourite game soundtrack, I’ve never played Katamari Damacy or sequels!

Yes this is Senor Coconut remixing Katamari on the Funk it’s on the game soundtrack for Katamari Forever…and works perfectly with Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

I wanted to do a mashup with Katamari on the Rocks, this is my third attempt since the 00’s, but it’s just too busy. So hence Senor Cocounut’s more stripped back take on Shibuya-Kei (this in fact probably was my first musical experience of that genre back in the mid 00’s) worked better.

Merengue! Cha Cha Cha!

Fun fact: as an 80’s teen I was a MASSIVE Gloria Estefan err, fan. Had several of her – well Miami Sound Machine’s – 80’s albums including Anything For You that included ‘Rhythm…’.

Making her into the King (Queen?) of All The Cosmos is all kinds of funny though for the artwork….

Whistle Loudly/Quietly Through The Night (Drumsound & Bassline Smith vs Pablo Beltrán Ruiz)

DJNoNo - Whistle Loudly / Quietly Through The Night Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Through The Night vs Pablo Beltrán Ruiz - El Silbido (El Pito) mashup bootleg bastard pop Senor Coconut boogaloo boogalu latin drum and bass swing and bass

EDIT: This won the challenge! Although I do find it interesting that I win the challenge yet both have gotten get zero likes on Sowndhaus. :-/

DJNoNo decided to have another go at the Crumplbangers Discord Spanish Challenge, he felt more bangin’ drum and bass was needed, but after a failed attempt to meld Cuando Cuando Cuando with Shy FX (watch this space, likely a non-Spanish version might appear in future) he then found this track called El Silbido (El Pito) (The Whistle in two languages?) by Pablo Beltrán Ruiz, the Mexican bandleader who wrote the song that became “Sway”.

So he mixed it with Drumsound & Bassline Smith – Through The Night, but very strangely for him also liked the non-banging version just using the synths and acapella from that. He hopes this track is in Spanish, he can’t make out the words? It’s quite a short set of lyrics…but definitely by a Spanish speaking artist.

It’s Drum n Boogaloo, or Swing n’ Bass, Latin bugalú meets drum and bass, I have to say I am fast preferring the synthy less busy and less beat-y quiet version more and more.

So here are both, they are separate entries and mixed and tweaked differently – one a quiet whistle, another a loud one. Very much inspired by Senor Coconut and London Elektricity.

And again, DJNoNo never makes political statements but he feels that this needs to be dedicated to the people of Ukraine, who need help to make it through the night atm.

Which is far too serious for a DJNoNo mashup! But we live in serious times.
