You know when those hip hop songs come out and you look at the list of features and your jaw drops? Like “holy shit, seriously…ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE ON THIS SONG?” But you’re super excited about it because it’s just about every rapper you’re obsessed with right now. Yes, I’m thinking of “1 Train” right now. But I’m also thinking of the new mashup from Ivo Robotnik, featured first in today’s Mashup Monday. I’m not sure I could listen to this song many times, because frankly I don’t love the production, but if only for the features it’s got on there, I had to post it. But then again…I kind of kick myself for doing that, because isn’t that what mashups get shit for after all? Just throwing together the best snippets into a less than ideal result? Ugh, conflict. Whatever. At the very least it’s something to think about, right? (Sorry, Ivo. Not my jam this time around.) Plus, Bobby Fisher brings justice back to Kendrick in the second featured song.
1. Bugg’n For The Night (Spaceman Dranks) [A$AP x DJ Carnage x Hardwell x Kendrick x Chiddy Bang x Dom Kennedy x Birdy Nam Nam x TNGHT] – Ivo RobotniK
2. Swimming Youth (Kendrick Lamar x Lana Del Rey x Nervo x Kanye x Nicki x Santigold x Avicii) – DJ Bobby Fisher
3. Carried Home (Phillip Phillips vs Passion Pit) – DJ 21azy
4. Teardrops [Avicii x Coldplay x Matthew Koma x Krewella] – Troika
Ay caramba. I’ve been in my death bed for the past four days with what seemed to be the plague, or perhaps the black lung, but I’ve finally managed to lift myself out of it and mosey on over to the couch (#PowerMoves), where I’m now watching football, posting this Mashup Monday, and preparing myself for the Bachelor premiere. I am SO 2013. Hit the jump to see all of the mashups!
