Every time I post a mashup I always start with a disclaimer that I’m not usually in the business of posting mashups, so I guess this time is no different. Maybe I am in that business after all and will suffer eternal denial. Whatever. What’s striking about this one is how perfectly they work together, with the instrumentals of “Video Games” giving depth and sadness to Morrissey’s vocals on “This Charming Man.” Although I couldn’t think of two polar opposite personality types (morose intellectual vs. vapid whatever she is), the themes live in perfect harmony. And while I would normally take issue with screwing around with such a sacred cow as The Smiths, it’s hard to argue in this case.

Maybe it says something about the versatility of Biggie’s luxurious, legendary flow that his records often make great fodder for mashups. And sure, mashups are no longer “en vogue,” and rarely do they ever grace these hallowed walls of HTML, but there’s always the exception to rule.
The Melker Project is about to drop the Skeetles EP, full of Biggie vs. Beatles tracks. This little number leaked early and features “Come On” laid over “Don’t Let Me Down,” expertly spiced with none other than the bluesiest dubstep producer, Gramatik.
I’d like to think that had they been able to meet, John Lennon and Biggie would have bonded over a fat rasta spliff. One can only dream.
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…)
