APRIL 26, 2009 FINALLY, SOME NEW STUFF Or maybe it's too soon, I don't even know. Contrary to popular opinion, I've actually been working on new boots, edits, and remixes, for reals. However, thanks to random factors like Coachella and a whole truckload of freelance work taking precedence, I just haven't had the gumption to get them mastered and make little covers and post them up here for your perusal. But I finally set aside a few hours for Dreamweaver, and here are a couple items to tide you over until I come up with anything better.
The Cars vs. Lady Gaga - "Poker Face (Just What I Needed)"
Click to play: And the award for "laziest mashup title" goes to... Well, damn, you try and think of a better one. "Just What I Poked"? Anyway, I've been wanting to make something out of this classic Cars track for a while, but there's no instrumental, so I kind of had to build one out of sticks and gravel. I don't know if it "adds" any "thing" to the "song" but there it is.
Evelyn "Chapagne" King vs. Kid Cudi - "Shame (At Nite)
Click to play: And the award for "laziest mashup" goes to... Okay, not like there's anything wrong with the Crookers mix, but sometimes you don't necessarily have a peak-time dancefloor ready for such a banging megajam, right? This doesn't really go anywhere, but it's, you know, pleasant enough.
Coming soon: info about a couple DJ dates in Boston at the end of May, and hopefully, final word on the June/July European tour.
