  • First of all, let’s get this out of the way: I can’t even bring myself to say the name of the song that’s been combined with an old Ike & Tina Turner number, but I bet you can guess it. (via Mashuptown.com)

  • Okay, clean your ears out with some lovely and innocent holiday-themed bootlegs: it’s another “Santastic” compilation, edited by Boston’s DJ BC and featuring the work of Go Home Productions, Freddy King of Pants, and a special “Dick In a Box” mix from A Plus D! Come to think of it, maybe this isn’t so innocent. (Santastic3)

  • Not street enough for you? Well, SoCal’s DJ Skee has put together a version of Jay-Z’s latest album American Gangster using music from another well-known gangster movie: it’s American Godfather, and while I’m a bit put off by Skee’s ego (“often cited as the definitive DJ for the West Coast”?!) Radar seems to like it. (Download at SendSpace)

  • Now here’s what mashups are really all about: actual musical craft. Lenlow’s smooth combo of Led Zeppelin, Buffalo Springfield, and a bunch more stuff feels like a whole new song, so shut up about this being a “cringe-inducing fad,” Radar. You’re cringe-inducing. Nyah! (Via Lenlow’s site)
  • DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

    without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

    In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

    If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
