Starfucker – Mixtape #1 (mashups/remixes)

June 27th, 2011 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie, Mashup, Mashup Monday, Remix |

A few months back, Starfucker put out a mashup/remix project, Mixtape #1, which features the Portland, Oregon band taking an indie rock tone to most of the songs they mix up or mix together. They usually use their own instrumentals from one of their songs with hip-hop vocals. Here’s a few of my favorite songs off of Starfucker‘s latest project, Mixtape #1 (DOWNLOAD).
Soulcrate Music/Sleep Awake /Strength/Marianne(starfucker remix)
E 40/Shawty Lo/Break ya Ankles /Starfucker/White of Noon
50 Cent/In Da Club /Starfucker/Julius
50 Cent/I Get Money /Starfucker/Mona Vegas
De La Soul/Itzsoweezee / Starfucker/Teen Challenge

Eddy B & Tim Gunter – Just Another Day

June 19th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Once again, Eddy B & Tim Gunter knock it out of the park with “Just Another Day”. Seriously if these guys opened for Chiddy Bang, easily could see them having similar popularity. Loving the Starfucker sample as “Just Another Day” becomes a dope summer anthem and their newest single off their upcoming Overseas EP, cannot wait for that!

indie update *Joywave, Starf*cker, Bedouin Soundclash, Young Empires, More Amor

March 30th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie |

Somebody told me we hadn’t done an indie music update in a while so here’s five indie songs that I downloaded within the last couple months, that I really like and have yet to post. As usual, most of these bands are emerging musicians in the industry.

First we got 5-member mashup group out of Rochester, New York, Joywave, who utilized indie electro-pop artists Miike Snow and LCD Soundsystem to create a mashup that just has wonderful over-lapping sounds and has this great instrumental flow. “Betelgeuse” comes off their latest mixtape 77777 (download). (via IndieShuffle)
Joywave – Betelgeuse (Ft. Miike Snow and LCD Soundsystem)
Next we got a new Starfucker track, “Death As A Fetish”. I have never been the greatest fan of the vocals but have almost always loved the instrumentals Starfucker assembles.
Starf*cker – Death As A Fetish
I have known about Bedouin Soundclash since 2007 when my friend Felon Fresh gave me a great introduction to indie/alternative music in a mix she made for another friend of mine. “Mountain Top” instantly became my favorite Bedouin Soundclash track with the instrumentals and the lyrics which make we want to climb atop a mountain for some strange reason.
Bedouin Soundclash – Mountain Top
I realize most indie music I enjoy because of the instrumentals that catch my ears then the vocals not being annoying is the 2nd reason I enjoy the track. Young Empires make original tracks as well as dope remixes and are still a bit raw with what seems like a fairly simple sound at the moment. However I see Young Empires only getting better as they better figure out their music style. (via TBIS)
Young Empires – Rain of Gold
Lastly comes a group that reminds me of Oasis, especially when it gets to the chorus. More Amor is a young indie pop group and in “Young Hollywood” they sing about falling into the Hollywood scene. More Amor is a mix of Oasis with Owl City but they have an originality that we should keep an eye on. (via P&P)
More Amor – Young Hollywood

DJ Mashups – DJ Bahler, DJ Phresh, DJ Ryno and DJ Invisiboy

February 28th, 2011 by | Dance, Mashup, Mashup Monday, Remix |

Four mashups from four mashups artists who have DJ in their name. First mashup is by one of my favorite mashup artists, DJ Bahler, who really knows how to make the most out of a song he is using in a mashup. He uses Tyler The Creator vocals and instrumentals with Gold Panda and Caribou in his latest mashup “Cellar Door” (song above). Download because DJ Bahler had the guts to use Tyler the Creator. Download “Cellar Door”

DJ PHRESH does more of a remix than a mashup when he uses upcoming hip-hop duo Dean & Ravo’s catchy song “Walkin’ Around” vs Capone. Not really sure who Capone is but I’m sure DJ Phresh used some of his vocals with Dean & Ravo. Solid electro instrumentals but I’m more a fan of the Dean & Ravo vocals.

I like DJ Ryno because he uses several songs pretty well and you can easily point out the songs he uses. However easily identifying the vocals and instrumentals also means the transitions are a bit slow but overall DJ Ryno is solid and if you like the mashup below, then you can download his last mashup mixtape, Nocturnal Concepts.
Next to Last by DJ RYNO
DJ Invisiboy recently reached out to us and at first I didn’t like the mashups because it’s music ADD overload with how crazy some of his mashups are. However “Rawnald Where You At” is my favorite featuring Lil Wayne vocals overal Starf*cker‘s insanely catchy indie rock instrumentals which Invisiboy sped up.

Daily Mash – The Next Starf*cker

November 5th, 2010 by | Mashup |

Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg vs Starf*cker. An older mashup by The White Panda (it was made five months ago), but I really love it and it’s my birthday.

As a birthday bonus, here’s one of my favorite (and lesser known) Hoodie Allen songs, “Owen Wilson”. Hoodie raps over the same Starf*cker song used above, just reminds me of summer joy.

Owen Wilson (feat. Starf*cker)

3 Awesome covers with 3 different sounds

October 25th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie |

One cover is straight 80’s pop, and immediately you might be thinking Madonna… well you’re right. Starf*cker covers Madonna’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” to make for an indie pop song I enjoy more than the original (maybe because I’m more comfortable singing along to this one).

Starf*cker – Girls Just Want To Have Fun

The next song covers house group Sweedish House Mafia’s “One” by indie pop group Foals.

Foals – One (Swedish House Mafia Cover)

Next Ben l-Oncle Soul takes on The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” to make for a jazz/soul type of feel to it.

Ben l’Oncle Soul – Seven Nation Army

Whatever reservations you have for the original versions of these three song, leave them behind for these interesting covers.

HIdden Gem: Hoodie Allen

August 4th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

If you don’t know Hoodie Allen by now, today is your lucky day! This NYC hip-hop duo which samples a vareity of music from indie (in “Your Are Not a Robot” featuring Marina & the Diamonds) to hip-hop music (with “Evil Women” featuring Mike Posner) as the basis for its songs. Hoodie Allen’s sound instantly reminds me of Chiddy Bang with a white rapper.

If you like Hoodie Allen as much as me, then you should be happy to know that come September, they will release an entire album. It will be titled Pep Rally and will feature even more creative samples than the ones mentioned above.

In follow up to thier first single “Your Are Not a Robot”, Hoodie Allen released his second single yesterday, “Words of Wisdom”, sampling one of my favorite up-and-coming rock bands Two Door Cinema Club, basically the second coming of Phoenix.  Words Of Wisdom (feat. Two Door Cinema Club) by HoodieAllen  You Are Not A Robot (feat. Marina & The Diamonds) by HoodieAllen  Evil Woman (Remix) by HoodieAllen

ENJOY and leave comments on which song you like the most
