Mash Hits # 219 – American Boy (Abba-esque disco mix)

This is the most commercial & least crazy, mashed or tainted one i’ve made for this project so hit me with the negative feedback if ya like. But let me say this i openly admit “I really like Estelle’s ‘American boy’ ” It’s a feel good song and has a good flow to it.

All i did for this bootleg was put a Erasure song on top of of it and mucked about with some standard DJ FX (Highpass filter and spinback) .. Sometimes less is more.

Erasure – Abba-esque (13/6/1992)
Estelle Ft Kanye West – American Boy (29/03/2008)

Mash Hits # 217 – The demise of the singer

Before you say it .. Yes this does sound like V/vm. I love V/vm, he is up there in my top 5 inspirations for making the music i do. So there.

The demise of the singer is a new song that follows Don Mclean down a path of cognitive dissonance.

Made entirely from samples and/or parts of the following British No 1 singles…
Don Mclean – Crying (21/6/1980)
Simon Park Orchestra – Eye Level (Theme Van Der Valk) (29/9/1973)
Rule Ft. R. Kelly & Ashanti – Wonderful (6/11/2004)

Mash Hits … the audio unit!!! (Max4live, Stand Alone, OSX, PC)

Mash Hits … the audio unit!!! (Max4live, Stand Alone, OSX, PC)

Shitmat & Beatwife are proud to present our new audio unit with is capable of recycling pop music into wig out music. Mash Hits cuts your audio file into hits which you can then sequence, mash and twiddle on the fly using a slider based sequencer with a handy wavetable to see which slice your triggering. You can rearrange and alter your sliced audio with many options such as : Number of Slices, Attack, Velocity, Randomize slice choice, Timing, Gate, Legato, Sequence length and Morph between presets. The results can be syncopated and at other times more abstract depending on how you decide to use it. it comes with some presets but we advise you just mess around with it, link it to your midi controller and go off on one!

The Effects…

Vinyl Richie
Tweak and screw your creations up with the two knobs; Scratch and Speed. You can also draw in automation curves for your scratch.

Gary Glitter Filter
This dodgy sounding FX is infact a handy filter; lowpass, highpass, bandpass & bandstop

Delay Guetta
This FX is actually nothing to do with the floppy haired nauseating producer, it’s an effective delay unit.

Leo Slayer
Fat and hairy distortion with 2 drive knobs and a lowpass filter.

Phil Collins Phaser
Experience another day in paradise with this nifty FX

Mash Hits # 214 – (It’s nearly) Xmas (…and i hate it)

Ahhhhhh that time of year is nearly here again. Iceland adverts featuring kerry katona, people consuming more food and drink in 3 days than they did in the entire year, a plethora of god awful seasonal songs, wasting money, family arguments, wasting time, disappointment, xmas eastenders…. In fact i do quite like xmas eastenders so it’s not all bad i guess.

Anyhow what made me think of all this was that when i was down Morrisons earlier (i followed the star of david) i spotted a mars xmas calendar (in the reduced section, wtf?) when i returned back to the house i am staying at (i’m homeless right now) and searched through my ever decreasing uk #1 folder (at last it’s a manageable amount) for a track to work with.. i noticed that i still had that very annoying xmas song you all must of heard loads of times before as it’s got to the number one spot a unprecedented three times over three decades (were due another one soon!!! urggg) … and the composition (mean mashup) just grew from there …. So here it is, an early xmas pressent from me to you.
