Listen to Copycat "Singing That A-ha Melody" Mash Up


Mash up artist Copycat was on a Scandinavian kick this weekend and mashed up Norwegian pop classic "Take On Me" by A-ha and "Swinging That Melody" by Swedish artist Swingfly.  He is a rapper originally from New York who has been living in and out of Sweden. Swingfly is a member of the band Blacknuss Allstars and he’s also touring as a guest artist with Robyn, Kleerup and Teddybears STHLM. A-ha and Swingfly makes up an unusual combination, but like with most mash ups, an odd coupling usually gives the best results. Download and listen to "Singing That A-ha Melody" here. It's very, very good.

Listen to Brand-New DJ Earworm Mash Ups


Lucky us!

San Francisco mash up artist DJ Earworm just posted a bunch of new mash up remixes on his web site that are completely, totally and utterly off the hook. I first posted about Earworm back in 2005 when I met him at an MTV VMA party in South Beach where he brought down the house with his classic "No One Takes Your Freedom," a mash up of Scissor Sisters, George Michael and Aretha Franklin.

Check out his new turntable delights:

"Just Dance To New Order" mixes up the sounds of Lady GaGa, New Order, Queen and Mary J Blige in perfect symmetry (This one is my favorite)

"Gimme Freaks" combines a Rolling Stones "Gimme Shelter" remix with Moguai and Tocadisco's "Freaks".

"Fedde Le Freak" has Rick James singing "Superfreak" over a remix of Duthc DJ Fedde Le Grand's "Put Your Hands Up For Detroit" by TV Rock and Dirty South.

"Girl is Rockin'" features Wyclef Jean and Akon singing over the beats of Erick E, remixed by Gregor Salto.

"Got to Give up the Dancefloor" fuses Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give it Up" with Stylophonic's edgy "Dancefloor".

"Intergalactic Human" features the Beastie Boys rapping over an remix of Daft Punk's classic "Human After All"

"Low Lovin'" is a straightforward club treatment of the pop chart topper by Flo Rida, with instrumentals provided by a Yuksek remix of Chromeo.

"Bust a Noise" is Young MC's "Bust a Move" over another club track by Erick E.

"Bad Ego": Michael Jackson's "Bad" with Alter Ego's electro house classic "Rocker"

"Say it Right Away" features Nelly Furtado singing over The Egg's "Walking Away", (better known as half of David Guetta's famous mashup "Love Don't Let Me Go/Walking Away")

Listen to Fast Ood Rockers "Song 4 Kylie (I'm In Love With A Girl In A Time Machine)"


"On Christmas Day, Kylie Minogue will climb inside the Tardis and save the planet in a maid's outfit."

Fast Ood Rockers produced a very accomplished mash-up to celebrate Kylie Minogue's upcoming appearance in a Christmas special of BBC's popular Dr. Who television series.

They put together Kylie's "2 Hearts," a cover version of Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine, The Killers' "Smile Like You Mean It" and The Timelord's "Doctorin The Tardis," which is based on Rob Grainer's 1963 composition of the Dr. Who television theme.  To add to all the time-traveling madness, Fast Ood Rockers also included some Christmas effects and rave horns.

(The Fast Ood Rockers should not be confused with the Fast Food Rockers who take their burger and cheese to a whole new trashtastic level.)
