Kickstarting a cover of GRIM GRINNING GHOSTS with mashup legend dj BC and friends!

You might know me from the mashup albums The Beastles, Ziggy Stardust Remixed, Wu Orleans, the Santastic Christmas Collections, and others. Up next is a glorious 7" vinyl record package, in a limited edition of 500 (100 purple, 400 black). And it's LEGAL!" Read the rest

Cassette Store Day is coming, when you'll be able to pick up the Beastles "Ill Submarine"!

dj BC (previously) writes, "You might be familiar with my Beastles mashup project from some years ago. The album "Ill Submarine" is dropping on TAPE on Cassette Store Day, October 13th 2018! I guess tapes are unpopular enough that no one anticipates copyright lawsuits. Speaking of copyright fear, the vinyl editions of this project, and of Wu Orleans, are not being pressed any more. So if you see one, get it." Read the rest

Christmas mashups: Santastic 8

dj BC writes, "I just dropped Santastic 8, the 8th annual Holiday mashup album in the series (10th if you count 'Menorah Mashups' and 'Re:Compostition').

This year we offer 14 new Christmas mashups, and one old one which was reissued because it is great and it matches the album cover so well. Contributors come from California, Atlanta, New York, Boston, Vienna, The Netherlands, Stockholm and Nashville."

There's some outstanding work here -- don't miss mojochronic's Lou Reed tribute at Track 12: "Lou Christmas (Without You)." Read the rest

Beastles get nuked by the RIAA - the merciless, indiscriminate boot of Big Content stamps on humanity's face, forever

Remember The Beastles, the amazing Beastie Boys/Beatles mashup? Hope you got a copy on your hard-drive because the RIAA's gone on a totally predictable jihad against a piece of delightful, noncommercial creativity.

Tim sez, "RIAA and Universal are pulling dj BC's Beastles across the web. Radio Clash has gotten a nastygram from the RIAA, Mega has pulled a mirror and also the Soundcloud has been disabled. In fact on his Facebook page, dj BC has announced pulling down the links tonight! It's amazing that in this day and age that a non-commercial fair-use project is still being stomped on by the blue meanies. Looking to see how I should respond...but also looking for a new host in Russia, although how that is better post-PRISM I'm not sure :-/"

Sorry, Tim, Russia just passed its own SOPA on steroids.

Moe Pope mashed with Big D and the Kids Table

Mashup virtuoso djBC sez, "Here's a new mashup album- and it's legal. I merged the concious raps of Boston MC Moe Pope with the soulful 'Fluent In Stroll' record from Big D and the Kids Table. The result is probably one of my strongest efforts- an organic sounding record that is convincingly live sounding, as if Moe walked into the recording sessions at Camp Street. With the guest talents of Edo G, Dana Colley (formerly of Morphine), Maestro 1-Ton (Agari Crew), The Doped-Up Dollies, Project Move, and Christopher Talken. Thank you. I am extremely proud of this effort and I hope to get it in some ear holes."

Holy smokes this is good music.

dj BC mashes up Jay-Z and Brian Eno: ANOTHER JAY ON EARTH

rageear writes, "dj BC returns with his latest mashup album that crosses the works of Jay-Z with Brian Eno.

Known for his previous works 'The Beastles', 'Wu Orleans', and 'Glassbreaks', dj BC continues to make fantastically interesting music and shows no signs of stopping."

I just downloaded this and gave it a spin, and as with all dj BC projects, the amazing thing isn't the incongruity of the two sources he combines, but how he finds their underlying similarities and brings them to the fore. I love dj BC's work, and a new album is always cause for celebration.

Python script turns any song into a swing number

dj BC sez, "Tristan Jehan from M.I.T. has created a unique and simple music hack, which my buddy Solcofn stumbled across on Paul Lamere's excellent 'Music Machinery' blog."

White Rabbit - The Swing Version by plamere

One of my favorite hacks at last weekend's Music Hack Day is Tristan's Swinger. The Swinger is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing. It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half. It has quite a magical effect.

Check out the examples from the likes of The Police, Daft Punk, Metallica, and Prince.
