Happy New Year for 2010 - Back to Business

Well, hello to everyone out there. Hope you are all well and had a most enjoyable New Year.

I didn’t post anything until now, because I have been job hunting.

I haven’t forgotten my duties though. I have been scouring the internet looking for New mashup’s, and I have found a few old favourites as well.

Those of you who are fans of the ramdomthoughts podcasts, will know that I brought to Scott’s attention a mashup artist by the name of Calmucho (formally known as Ken ‘Kendoll’ Carson). I’m sorry to say that he hasn’t produced anything new since the summer of 2008, but fear not, his Youtube channel is still running and his tracks are still available to download on his blogsite at calmucho.blogspot.com.

It seems that mead-vice.com is becoming popular with fans of mashup in Russia and Poland. I have received comments from many people (using Google Translate as I only speak english) and have received positive comments on the site. I wish to extend my gratitude to you all, Thank-you for your feedback, it’s much appreciated.

Fans of Colatron can find his long awaited Tenebrism, released 14th December on his website, but be warned that he’s been a busy boy, and has released seven tracks since December. So go to www.colatron.com and scroll down the page.

Also, over at maddisco.blogspot.com, Apollo Zero brings us his latest offering Donna Summer VS U2 – She works hard on New Years day. Also amongst the treasures you can find LeeDM101 – The One I Looped and also Womanizer on fire, two great tracks.

From the Godfather of Mashup, Bobby Martini, we have plethora of amazing mixes. Recent inclusions are La Roux in Pain and also a favourite of mine Sound Pollution this Time, Baby.

I have to say that if you visit www.bobbymartini.co.uk, check out the long mixes, especially Joy of Decks. The three Long Mixes on this page are on my ipod. They are, along with E.V.P. And the Political HipHop Mix, the soundtrack to my life.

The Political HipHop Mix is one of those classics, a piece of Mashup legend (up there with dangermouse’s black album), but people are having trouble finding it. If you are one of these people, try the link below

enjoy!!!

Dropping down from the No1 one position in the mashup charts, is the DJ’s from Mars, with Run this Town, a mashup of Jay-Z ft Rihanna (Run this town)VS Johann Sebastian Bach (Toccata and Fugue in D minor). Very well mixed, and Rihannas got a great set of pins on her.

I dont go much in the way of video mashups, if I’m honest, but I have stumbled across a couple of really good ones. I have uploaded them to mediafire for your enjoyment. Check them out at the links below
