PARTY BEN SURVIVES EUROPEAN TOUR
Despite best efforts of Germany where I believe they were trying to poison me with spicy mustard that came in a toothpaste tube.Paris Zut alors, as they say in another country whose name I can't remember right now: I just got back from the European tour and boy is my DJ finger tired. Think how many times I must have pressed "play"! Seriously, it was an amazing time, from Warsaw to Tourcoing, and it was great meeting all the co-conspirators as well as attendees at the events, thanks to all of you. If anyone's interested in reading about, like, what I ate in Prague or what I think about Calatrava, you can delve into the mundane details of everything from the trip over at The Party Blog, but let's keep this fine website a little more focused, shall we?

In that spirit, there were a bunch of things I was playing around Europe that I hadn't yet posted here, some of which generated a modicum of interest. First of all, my admittedly-late-to-the-scene fascination with Baltimore beats (I'm like Diplo minus the whole "being cool" part!) found its expression in a couple new mixes; then, there was something I made specifically for Germany that actually just seemed to confuse the Germans but I still found highly amusing.

Callin Up

Lyrica Born vs. Average White Band - "Callin' Up the Pieces" (Party Ben's Baltimore Remix)
Yes, this is item number four (4) that I've produced with the good old Lyrics Born a capella, although really there's just the AWB and the U2 versions which each have a "remix." But still, yes, I'm a hack, and I hope Tom isn't getting sick of me doing this. Anyway: Call, call, callin' out!

Star Guitar

Block Rockin

The Chemical Brothers - "Star Guitar" (Party Ben's a Big Bright Shining Star Remix)
A while back Electrosound asked me to take part in a bootleg tribute to the Chemical Brothers, and while I don't usually have time to contribute to these projects, I'd had an idea rolling around my head for elucidating the Baltimore sound that kind of bubbles under in "Star Guitar" for a while, so I was happy to have a deadline to whip me into shape. So, first I made the (mostly) instrumental version which I handed off to the project, and then I thought "hey this could use some Ludacris," so I threw "Stand Up" over it and played it a bunch all over Europe. Whee!

Go here to grab tracks from Block Rockin' Boots with contributions from GHP, Moule, BC, Dunproofin' and more.

Modern Barkley

Modern Talking vs. Gnarls Barkley "Crazy (If You Want)"
So in an attempt to ingratiate myself with the many nations of the EU, I tried to put together something appropriate for each location on the tour: "Polska Boys" for Poland, a "Boulevard" mix with MC Solaar for France, and this ridiculous thing for Germany. Not familiar with Modern Talking? They're only the
most successful pop group in German history, and it turns out "You Can Win If You Want" is basically the same exact chord pattern as "Crazy." I played it at Bootie Munich expecting a rousing ovation and, sadly, it almost killed my floor; are Germans now embarrassed by Thomas and Dieter?

So, will Party Ben return to the EU for more gigs, possibly sometime when it's a little warmer? Stay tuned...
