Like the third season of Game of Thrones, the mashup scene is very much over. But unlike the many beloved characters that George RR Martin ruthlessly kills off, The White Panda still remains. And they’re back with a new album, featuring this awesome chop up of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and the Game of Thrones theme. And you thought the Chvrches cover was cool…

Don’t know a whole lot about this, just that it surfaced on some obscure mixtape a while back. But when you’re dealing with the Notorious B.I.G. and Frank Sinatra, you’re dealing with a timeless sound. Taking time off from collaborations with Miley Cyrus, Biggie pairs up perfectly with another New York City legend for a great mashup.
Typically I stay away from posting mashups on Electric Panda Music but some fusions are just undeniable. I want to listen to this track riding across the Brooklyn bridge in a Rolls Royce sipping on Moet. Guess I’ll just settle for bumping it on the soundsystem at home. Enjoy!
Ah, what a great way to start the week! Friend of Electric Panda Music, DJ Invisiboy, sent us an exclusive mashup upon request. We were looking for something from blog favorites and NYC producer kings The Knocks and Invisiboy didn’t disappoint. He came back with “Dancing with the DJ” mashed with Tag Team’s “Whoop! There it is,” adding some Jesse Marco for effect.
Do we really need to wax philosophical about this one? Fanboy alert: anything with The Knocks is a win in my book.
Rumor around town is that Invisiboy has some big things in the works so keep an eye out on this upcoming Portland DJ and mashup artist. As for today? WHOOP! THERE IT IS! (That never gets old…)

This little jam came out in 2006, so I’m going to go ahead and declare it worthy enough for Flashback Friday status. What is that in blogger years, like 20? Mashups are on the way out, but this is so delicately done that it hardly even counts. Sam Flanagan, known for his brilliant mixes, takes Lily Allen’s bird-like voice and sets it down against the Madchester kings Stone Roses. The result is one of those rare products that sound like it should have been the original song itself.
On such a warm, sleepy Friday afternoon what could be better? It’s a nice primer for a night out or winding down for a quiet evening inside. Give it at least 36 seconds, where it really kicks in to something memorable.

Thanks to Raven and Crow for the find!
Turntable.fm is one of the most exciting things to happen to the music scene in some time. Artists, producers, music lovers and even entire companies are getting in on the social music action. It’s still in closed beta, which means you can meet some really interesting people and is not yet perverted by the hordes of dipshits of the internet. Which brings me to DJ Invisiboy, a rad dude I met in a Turntable.fm room and has since become a regular friend on the site.
Almost forget to mention, the dude cranks out some awesome mashups. Today’s Music Monday/Mashup Monday track is “Low Bots” – a dope mashup of Robyn’s “Fembots” with Flo Rida’s “Low” and a little helping of Freezepop in there. Perfect little mashup to start your week off with an upbeat, fun tempo. This is just a sample of DJ Invisiboy’s rad selections, check out his website for more or his Twitter account to find out when he’s hitting the Turntable.fm decks.
