Figured it was time to refresh the Mashup Monday artwork. Bears are cool, right? I’ve been kind of into them lately. Hit the jump for your fill of this week’s top mashups!
1. The Scars of Your Love [Purity Ring + Adele + e-dubble + John Legend] – DJ Bahler
2. Get It On Night By Night (Chromeo vs Marvin Gaye) – Mashed and Confused
I went out with a couple friends on Friday night and one sat down next to me and said straight up, “Lydia? I don’t like everything you post on Sunset in the Rearview, but when I do, it’s almost always Mashup Monday.” And you know what I did? I punched him in the face. When he started to look at me like he was going to kill me, I turned back and said, “Don’t worry, you’ll feel better when you hear what I have for you on Monday.”
1. “DOSVEC Dani California” (B.o.B x Red Hot Chili Peppers) – DOSVEC
The only thing that bothers me about this one is some of the RHCP lines sounding off-tune. Otherwise, pretty smooth. Surprisingly so for these two tracks.
2. “Colours (Remix)” (Skizzy Mars x Biggie Smalls) – DJ 21azy
The Grouplove sample from Skizzy’s track + Biggie. No complainin’! Download here.
3. “The Way I Am” (Eminem x Kid Cudi) – White Lotus
Cudder plus Em? Yes. That is a punch in the face.
4. “My Dangerously Melodic Anthem” – D.Veloped
My Dangerously Melodic Anthem by D.VELOPED
Oh.My.God. My buddy D.Veloped (North Carolina! Raise up!) just killed this. I don’t even know where to begin naming the artists on this track. Move over, Gregg Gillis.
Disclaimer: The above story is somewhat fabricated.
“Suicidal Thoughts” has always been one of my favorite Biggie songs, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s also one of my favorite Biggie songs to hear mashed up. The song’s grim theme and short length (I think) protects it from falling victim to generic, shitty party remixes. But either way, this mashup is surprisingly sweet and simple, with the vocals layered over Kanye’s also wonderful “Runaway.” Take a listen. I’ll also post the original, as well as my favorite remix of the song, a mashup with the XX’s “Fantasy.”
