bangers and mash

Justin Sloe- Not For Chinstrokers MP3

The whole DJ "mash up" craze has died down considerably since everyone and their mother made a mediocre mash using the accapela's from Jay-Z's "Black Album". Danger Mouse brought it to the mainstream with his mashup of The Beatles "White Album" and Jay-Z's "Black Album" creating his own "Grey Album". This video that somebody made with tracks from the Grey Album is great:GreyVideo

Long before Danger Mouse and the zillion other bootleggers on the internet were making mashup's, DJ Z-Trip was pulling it off impeccably live. He owned the first Scratch tour with his impressive blends of rock, hiphop, scratching, and more, sometimes playing up to 3 tracks at once and 100% on the fly. It may be a bit old now, but Z-Trip and DJ P's mash-up masterpiece, "Uneasy Listening" is a great party jam.

I hadn't heard a mix of mash-ups that has impressed me in a long time until I heard this new mix by DJ Justin Sloe. He really nailed the blends and he uses a nice mix of hiphop, downtempo, and rock. MJ (the billie jean demo!), Biggie, Hall and Oates, Chic, Fat Boys...even Khia is up on this piece! The whole Blondie>The Doors>Method Man segment is incredible. This is one of the most creative dj mixes of the year.
