djBC and friends release a legal mashup album on vinyl

djBC writes, "My mashup record with Boston MC Moe Pope and ska/punk legends Big D & The Kids Table was picked up by Asbestos Records! It's 100% legal, too. And there are some great guests like the legendary rapper Edo G and saxophonist Dana Colley of Morphine. Asbestos Records did a lovely job with two different vinyl colorways- black/clear (100 available) and blue/clear (500 available). They even produced one of those 'word' videos for the jaunty single 'Fuckin' Love Music' featuring guest vocals from The Doped Up Dollies. GET IN!" Read the rest

Nerdcore Ghostbusters rap video starring the Atlanta Ghostbusters

djBC writes, "Atlanta nerdcore rapper Tribe One teams up with producer and mashup artist dj BC for this Ghostbusters-inspired rap joint. The video was shot at Bootie Dragon Con and on location at an abandoned farm on the outskirts of Atlanta, and stars members of the Atlanta Ghostbusters cosplay group. If you want to add the song to your Halloween playlist, it's free to download." Read the rest

Dragoncon mashup mix: 1:15 of nerdy, brilliant, illegal tunes

Mashup demigod djBC writes, "Pimpdaddysupreme (PDS Mix), myself and Jabulani (Bootie Boston) will be spinning the opening night rave at Dragon Con this year. Here's a collection of mashups- an online 'mixtape' if you will- for Dragon Con! Of particular interest to folks are the 'United States of The Jedi' and 'We No Speak Cantina' tracks, but you might enjoy the simple pleasures of the Paul Frees voice over from the Haunted Mansion ride plopped on the instrumental sections of Bauhaus's 'Bela Lugosi's Dead.'"

Oh god, this is brilliant.

Here's that Beastles album you've been waiting for!

Last weekend, I let you know that a new Beastles album was forthcoming from djBC, who was reprising his mid-2000s project to mash up the Beatles and the Beastie Boys, which disappeared thanks to legal threats from EMI. Now, djBC writes,

The third and final Beastles album, Ill Submarine, is now out. 20 songs mashing the Fab Four with the B-Boys.

Some folks seem to be discovering this stuff for the first time, which is cool. I guess that makes sense- its been about 9 years since the first album came out- 2004! and 6 or 7 years since "Let It Beast." It seems like ages ago.

For those who are catching up, Silence Seven from Beastiemixes.com is kindly hosting the first two albums of Beastle mixes as well.

Dedicated to the memory of Adam Yauch.

I've been listening to this all week now. I suggest starting with No Sleep Til the Sun Comes Up, Brrthday and Twist That Train.

I recommend starting with track 14, I Wanna Be Dentated - Blitzen's Bop (The Ramones vs The Three Stooges vs The Ray Conniff Singers) or track 6, Riders On The Sugar Plum (Sugar Plum Fairy vs The Doors vs Maroon 5). But it's all fab, and free. Here's djBC's writeup:

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.

What's Opera, Doc? the mashup

djBC, the archduke of mashup, has created a video to accompany his 2005 "wemix" of the classic Chuck Jones 1957 Bugs Bunny cartoon "What's Opera, Doc?"

Santastic Six: killer mashups for the holidays

djBC has released the sixth Santastic collection, a set of holiday mashups from some of the greatest sonic plunderers in the world (earlier efforts). As always, the Santastic mixes are fantastic. If you want my favorites, try Divide and Kreate's Santatage (MP3) (mashing Otis Redding vs The Beastie Boys vs Run DMC); ATOM's Wonderland Walker (MP3) (mashing Peggy Lee vs Fats Domino vs Bjork); and djBC's Mashing Christmas (MP3) (mashing Danny Elfman vs The Supremes vs Jimmy Stewart).

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.

Santastic 5: more holiday mashups

Mashup impressario dj BC and friends have just released the fifth installment in their much-anticipated annual Santastic series of totally illegal, totally wonderful, totally unauthorized Christmas mashups -- this year with videos. They're all groovy, of course, but if I were you, I'd start with the last track, mojochronic's Motown Christmas.

MixMixGangBang: Parisian mashup artists recreate great album covers with luchador masks

djBC sez, "My friends ComaR, Yold Bibba, Gatt and Gandpamini have been running a mashup/cover/remix night in Paris called "Mix Mix Gang Bang." It's at a really cool Mexican Wrestling Bar called La Lucha Libre, they wear the iconic wrestling masks, and they set up the decks in a ring. The flyers are not to be missed. And each month they recreate an album cover, seemingly from scratch. Check out the gallery."

Sesame Street meets Pakistani "Sufiyan English" film theme

Romantic V-day song

djBC sez, "For Valentine's Day. Ska/Punk brats Big D and The Kids Table grow up and invent 'Stroll Music,' a fusion of classic R&B, ska, reggae, jazz, and rock. This tune reminds me of the best things about 'Exile On Main Street' - it's a paean to the healing power of travel, adventure and instant relocation. The video was made on a shoestring budget (the flashing lights outside were controlled by kids flicking light switches in time with the music), but they was somehow able to wrangle an airplane, and much of it was shot in the same building as Saw 2 (!). Favorite quote: 'You're much happier when you sing / about how much you dig everything.'"

Hardcore hip-hop Xmas

djBC writes, "As you probably know from the steady stream of Holiday mashup albums I've been compiling over the past 5 years, I dig Christmas music, and I keep remixing it. In this case I took the Big D and The Kids Table Christmas paean to Red Sox, victory, drinking, heavy Boston accents and holiday merriment in general, cut it into a hip-hop beat and enlisted rapper Black Element to bust rhymes. Anyway- I finally did it! I made a Christmas single! AND video! Woo! I hope people get a kick out of it and it ends up on some holiday mixes right next to 'White Christmas.' Or something.

Menorah Mashups: djBC's seasonal copyright infringement with a little Klezmer

djBC writes, "After four years of Christmas collections, and with a 18/mo little girl, I decided it was time to take a stab at a Hanukkah mashup/remix collection. The 8 tunes (8 days, 8 tunes, get it?) have a sort of klezmer/traditional Kewish music meets dub/house/pop/hip-hop sort of feel, and the two bonus tracks are for laughs.

One high point is Brasilia's FAROFF with his House of Pain vs Amsterdam Klezmer Band mash, with mp3 and video."

I love the description: "Ingredients: Frank Yankovic and His Yanks, Gwen Stefani, House Of Pain, Frank Zappa, Amsterdam Klezmer Band, Pa Brapad, several iterations of The Dreidel Song, several iterations of Hava Nagila, South Park, a dash of Chingy, Adam Sandler, The Star Trek Theme, Van Halen, James Caan, Charlton Heston, Fonzie, Sarah Silverman, Trio, Three Weissmen, Craig and Co, Alan Sherman, Pudie Tadow, and two seconds of Black Eyed Peas."

djBC's Muppet mashups

djBC, consistently my favorite mashup producer/creator (he's the guy behind the Beasties/Beatles remix "The Beastles"), has released an entire album of remixes of Muppet music! He sez, "In honor of my daughter's first birthday- and one month late- I'm rolling out 'Muppet Mashup.' Ten mashups, remixes, and covers of music from The Muppet Show and Sesame Street. With the legendary McSleazy (of MTV Mash and GYBO), Dunproofin, ATOM, Martinn, Uncanny Valley and yours truly, dj BC. I'm particularly proud of my 'I'm Happy' track, which is built on Edwinn Starr loops, Muppet Show samples, and a fun, funky playground acapella from some little girls on Sesame Street."

I've just listened to this straight through, with the baby, and we were both captivated. Bravo!

Mashups, remixes, and covers of music from The Muppet Show and Sesame Street.
