Avicii update with Special Features, The Friendly Giant and Pixel Cheese

October 6th, 2011 by | House, Mashup, Remix |

So the post title probably was a bit confusing but hopefully I got your attention with Avicii as this post is filled with 5 songs that consist of remixes, mashups and a couple originals from Avicii. All the songs are originally from Avicii.

First we start off with a Special Features bootleg to the Avicii & David Guetta smash hit, “Sunshine”. Special Features adds some cool beats and synths to it, enhancing the original just a bit more.
Sunshine (Special Features Bootleg) – Avicii & David Guetta by specialfeatures

Next is a bootleg of “Coming Home” with Avicii‘s “Flash”. It’s called “Dirty Flash” and I love how the vocals to “Coming Home” are good but then Avicii takes it to another level with his DJ skills shown all over this track.
Dirty Flash (Avicii ‘Heavy Touring’ Bootleg)

Here’s a Friendly Giant mashup between Avicii‘s “Levels” and Loona‘s dance hit “Vamos A La Playa”. I don’t know anything about Loona, I know “Levels” may be Avicii‘s best song, overall this is a banging mashup from The Friendly Giant.

Avicii put this track out in early September, and it’s banging as usual. Here’s “Morphine”.

Lastly Pixel Cheese did a bootleg of “Sunshine” from Avicii & David Guetta versus “Till Tonight” from Laidback Luke. Pixel Cheese took an acapella from “Till Tonight” and a MIDI of “Sunshine” and then made this.

Sorry if I used the word banger a lot, tried to keep the song descriptions short so you can get the party started.

Mashup Monday: The Friendly Giant – No More Fairy Tales

July 11th, 2011 by | Mashup, Mashup Monday, Mixtape Monday |

Mashup artist, The Friendly Giant released his latest mashup mixtape, No More Fairy Tales about a month and a half ago. I finally found time to post this must-download mashup mixtape that has track after track filled with catchy mashup fun. His catchy fun mashups is a big reason why we featured one of his mashups in our last compilation mixtape, Best You Never Heard III: Spring Edition.

Here’s my five favorites off No More Fairy Tales (DOWNLOAD).

Mashup Monday: The Friendly Giant, John Marr, Party Ben

February 21st, 2011 by | Mashup, Mashup Monday |

For this week’s mashup monday I decided to dedicate it to three emerging mashup DJ’s: The Friendly Giant, John Marr, and Party Ben. I have 2 songs I like a lot from each artist below to listen and download.

First we got John Marr, a UK DJ whose first mashup below adds a more elelectronic feel to Snow Patrol’s hit single “Chasing Cars”. In the second mashup it’s more a remix as Mike Posner originally used the Miami Horror song in another song of his. I like the party feel of it.
John Marr – Chasing Kylie (Snow Patrol vs Kylie Minogue)
John Marr – Sometimes Cooler Than Me (Mike Posner vs Miami Horror)
Next DJ is LA-based The Friendly Giant who is really good at mixing two catchy songs into a dope mashup. Two examples below.
The Friendly Giant – Forever (Drake vs Jack Johnson)
The Friendly Giant – Don’t Stop This Plane (Wiz Khalifa vs Journey)
Lastly Party Ben is probably my favorite of the three just because he’s been around the longest from what I know. Here’s two of my favorites by him, they are kind of old but still great.
Party Ben – Shame (At Nite) (Evelyn Chamagne King vs. Kid Cudi)
Party Ben – Live Your Life Punk (Rihanna/T.I. vs Vampire Weekend)
