Fever Ray and The Knife

The Knife is a Swedish band who has been around forever and won a ton of awards. Fever Ray is Karin Andersson's (one half of The Knife) solo project. Videos follow.



Note that all of their videos share the same themes. Some examples: masks, symbolic language, man's place in nature.

Here's his remix of Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek, which I like much better than the original.

Stefani Before Gaga





The Lady Gaga Forum has a post with links to the AAC and MP3 files of the unreleased Stefani Germanotta Band - Red And Blue EP (2006),or you can watch them on Miqui212's YouTube channel. I like the songs here better than her pop stuff. Hopefully she formally releases this or gets back to it someday.

Eric Prydz


Been listening to Eric Prydz/Pryda.
Songs: Call On Me (Eric Prydz Vs Retarded Funk Mix), Muranyi, Balaton - Original Mix*, Pjanoo (Club Mix), F12, Ron Hardy Said - Eric Prydz Remix*
*Got from beatport.com and the rest from iTunes.

Eric Prydz gained attention from his "Call on Me" featuring a sample from Steve Winwood's "Valerie."
From the Sunday Mail:
In 2004, Steve reached a new generation of music fans when DJ Eric Prydz sampled his 1982 classic Valerie for dance hit, Call On Me.
"I re-recorded the vocal specially and sent it to him by email. I've still never met him," said Steve. "I couldn't believe it when it got to No. 1."

More on this DJ: Wikipedia, ericprydz.com, Pryda label, Myspace, call on me video

He also goes by the name Pryda.
On Youtube: Balaton, Muranyi, Genesis, Call on me (original mix)

Allmusic.com Bio:
Swedish DJ and producer Eric Prydz releases singles and EPs under a variety of project names, including Pryda, Cirez D, Sheridan, Dirty Funker, Moo, A and P Project, Axer, Hardform, Dukes of Sluca, and Groove System. Most of these singles are released on his own labels, which include Mouseville, Pryda, and Pryda Friends. Under his own name, however, Prydz favors straightforward, club-oriented house with a line in remakes of mildly cheesy pop songs from the 1980s. Prydz's first release in this style was 2004's "Call on Me," a sensation in Europe upon its release. Built on the hook from Steve Winwood's 1987 hit "Valerie" (with new vocals by Winwood), "Call on Me" hit the top of the singles chart in both England and Germany, spurred in large part by a somewhat controversial video consisting of an overtly sexual aerobic routine that had no less a personage than U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair publicly commenting on its salaciousness. Prydz followed this in 2005 with "Woz Not Woz," a beat-heavy instrumental revamp of the 1980 Was (Not Was) single "Wheel Me Out" that was less commercially successful but more musically inventive. This was followed in 2006 by "Proper Education," a remake of Pink Floyd's smash "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" that sets Roger Waters and the schoolchildren chorus to a considerably funkier backbeat; this single was also released in a Daft Punk remix.

Feed The Animals

I downloaded Girl Talk's Feed the Animals from illegal-art after following a link from one of the music sites, but it wasn't until today, after reading yesterday's NY Times article, that I started listening to it. It reminds me of the excitement of finding out about mashups back in 2004, but a more wrapped up, commercial version-- a more accessible, updated, and less clowny version of DJ Yoda's Amazing Adventures. Like most mashups, GT's songs capture the best moments of popular contemporary songs to stir up your emotions in a post-post-modern we-play-everything radio play for the short-attention span, multitasking, always-online, text-messaging twitter generation.

checking old links. found new ones.

Checking to see if old links still work &
saw that Alex-C moved.
He thanked Bristle’s Blog from the BunKRS
for featuring him.
looks like it's half-mashup mixes, half-political blog.
Meanwhile, Alex-C has gone multiple, his two other personalities are Dubstep Project - 'DFRNT' and
Experitronica.

Jimmi Jammes

Jimmi James moved last year to MySpace. He's the artist who gave us I am your father, a Darth Vader mashup, and Sgt. Pepper's Paradise, combining Gun's & Roses' Paradise City with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Check out his stuff. My current favorite is Just a Umbrella.

Bohemian Rhapsody -- Kleptones

Heard an amazing version of bohemian rhapsody remixed by the kleptones. They took a lifetime of recordings and condensed it into one song. Tried to find it on their site, but could only find Night At The Hip-Hopera, which has a bunch of Queen mashups (tracks from Waxy). It came up almost 30 minutes into illegal songs 20.
Their site pointed to mirror sites for other records, including:
klepshimi, which has a lot of mashup links, but was last updated jan 28 05. most of the links are now dead :(
The other funny item on the mix was ni9e's edit of nwa's straight outta compton, with just the explicit content left in.

Searching for Ronson's boots

Listening to Mark Ronson's kylie_ronson and OOH WEED mashups.
Looking for more from 2003.

From Boomselection.info care of the way back machine:
Mark Ronson- Lionel Vinyl (vs Kylie's Slow) = kylie_ronson.mp3
Mark Ronson - DJ Tiim (vs Missy's Dutch) = OOH WEED.mp3

From above:
DJTims downloads

Apparently the wayback machine does not store mp3s. The links go outside. I was fooling myself. There are no shortcuts in life :(

From boomselection.info, care of the Wayback machine:
Elektrobank
From Elektrobank:
Fakeid
Lionel Vinyl
Nadia Ksaiba, which linked to Our Disco

Ton more links from Elektrobank:
Culture Deluxe (bootchart)

That's right, you can download some mp3s from Boomselection on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
Still can't find the Beach tape, though.

Well, if I can't find it, I might be able to stream it from BBC 1's BBC Radio Player.
Aside from The Essential Mix, Annie Mac's is a popular show.

VARIOUS - The Best Mashups In The World Ever Are From San Francisco

from the cached boomselection page

boomselection got hacked and lost its data awhile back, but google still has cached pages. Here are the sidelinks I found:

DJ Yoda

I'm addicted to DJ Yoda's latest boomselection release, annie max mini mix (MP3).
I want more but I can't find it. Apparently he's selling his mixes these days rather than putting them up on the internet. Well, it happens to the best of them, I suppose. And I'm coming into this really late in the game too so I can't expect much.

I found the old boomselection info on him and would love to hear tje DJ Yoda & Dan Greenpeace Essential Mix 22/06/03. I'll begin my search for this now (scroll down on
Google's cached page for the info).
