Lyrics BornA SPECIAL LYRICS BORN VALENTINE'S DAY TREAT
I hope he got the box of chocolates I sent him. As LIVE 105 listeners and readers of this fine website know, my history with Bay Area hip hop artist Lyrics Born (aka Tom Shimura) is a long one. His 2003 track "Callin' Out" made its radio debut when I played it on Subsonic, and by the way to get it on the air I had to spend an hour making a "radio edit" since I all had was the original with its repeated chant of "make this shit happen right here right now," which is naughty. Eventually I tracked down the clean a capella, and started mixing it over just about everything in the good old Sixx Mixx; later, a version using U2's "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" emerged as a favorite. Amazingly, neither Tom nor his label Quannum (represented to us by the awesome Lydia) were perturbed about my mucking about with his song--on the contrary, they started tossing a capellas and instrumentals at me like I was a one-man hit machine and not just a dippy DJ who sometimes stumbles onto amusing combos.

In the intervening years, I made a total of four separate mashups and remixes of the track, and one of them has now shown up on a new Lyrics Born mixtape. The Lyrics Born Variety Show features my 2005 remix of "Callin' on Sunday," and while they're having some website issues over at lyricsborn.com right now, once they fix it you can download the whole thing for $1.99 if you act soon.

Plus, their news page is totally making me blush: they give me a major shout-out and call me the "Mash Up King" which I've said before isn't exactly right: I'm more like the Mashup Court Jester. But anyway, jeez, thanks guys.

So in celebration of mutual Lyrics Born-Party Ben lurrvvvv, I've remastered and compiled all my versions of "Callin' Out" as well as a brand new crazy techno mix into one exciting EP:

Callin' Out

Can't Stop Callin' Out: The Complete Party Ben vs. Lyrics Born Experience
ZShare RAR file link includes all 5 tracks:

1. U2 vs. Lyrics Born - "Callin' on Sunday" (Original mix) mp3

2. U2 vs. Lyrics Born - "Callin' on Sunday" (2005 Remix) mp3

3. Average White Band vs. Lyrics Born - "Callin' Up the Pieces" mp3

4. Average White Band vs. Lyrics Born - "Callin' Up the Pieces" (Baltimore Remix) mp3

Bonus Track: SebastiAn vs. Lyrics Born - "Callin' Ross" mp3

That's right, you get the original 2004 megamashup, the 2005 remix made specifically for a big show where Lyrics himself was playing, the silly Average White Band mashup I threw together for my Party Ben: A New Beginning set in 2007, and the wacky B-more remix thereof. Plus act now and get a ridiculous bonus track: a crazy stuttery edit using SebastiAn's thumpy hit "Ross Ross Ross" that doesn't really go anywhere but is kind of amusing in a remix-y kind of way.

What a bargain! Anyway, I was just e-mailing LB, and with his new album Everywhere At Once coming out on Anti- in April (plug, plug), we might have more exciting PB/LB stuff later this... er, spring. So, thanks Tom, Justin and Lydia for putting up with me, and everybody please go spend lots of money on Lyrics Born and Quannum stuff right now, and hey, even Anti- stuff too, while you're at it.
