FEBRUARY 27, 2008
!GRACIAS MÉXICO!
Y no sólo para los tacos. I managed to stop sampling the local cuisine long enough to actually do a couple DJ gigs around Mexico last week, in the Puebla area and Monterrey, as part of the run-up to the MX Beat festival, four concerts around the country that feature international artists like M.I.A. and Cut Copy as well as Mexican combos like Plastilina Mosh and Instituto Mexicano del Sonido. Since the promoters of the gigs were interested in having me play some of the music from the bands on the lineups, and I'm also all about making special mashups for the countries I'm lucky enough to visit, I threw together a simple track using good old M.I.A. and the aforementioned Plastilina Mosh, a Monterrey band who were appearing at the Puebla festival date.

Me and the P-Mosh guys at their bar, Rubber Ducky Records, in Monterrey's old town

So, imagine my surprise when I arrive in Monterrey and mention the mashup to my local contacts, they say "hey, P Mosh are are buddies and we're actually planning to stop by the bar they own before your gig, you can totally meet them." Crazy! So, yes, we went there and yes, I met them, and yes I gave them a CD of the mashup which they put on the stereo immediately. Unfortunately I'd just made a new version of it that day on the laptop and hadn't listened to the whole thing so the first verse was a little off the beat (roops!), hopefully nobody noticed. But look: we got a picture!

Anyway, like I said, this is a pretty simple little mashup, but I figure if the stars aligned so weirdly that I actually meet the band then I guess I should probably post the track here.

Millionaire Galang

Plastilina Mosh vs. M.I.A. - "Millionaire Galang"
7MB 192kbps mp3

"Millionaire" was a big hit for the Mosh in 2006 I guess so perhaps this is a little old for everybody in Mexico but it's a jaunty little tune and look, M.I.A.'s ya-ya-hey's are in the same key.


Crazy, huh: lately I'm getting kind of randomly lucky with original artists at least being aware of and giving public props to my work, whether or not I put my foot in my mouth with them. Still waiting for that call from Noel Gallagher, though. Anyway, thanks a bunch to Adan, Jose Antonio, and Marianna for their work in helping to put together the gigs, and thanks Mexico for all the tacos al pastor.
