(Sorry, I started doing this page before, like, blogs were a thing, so it's all a bit unwieldy. Most mashups are on the downloads page but some are buried deep in the past.)

OCTOBER 3, 2010
EVERYTHING SLIGHTLY OLD-ISH IS SLIGHTLY NEW-ISH AGAIN
Except me!
We at Party Ben Information Systems pride ourselves on being a dedicated part of America's vibrant Service Economy, successfully accommodating consumers' needs through massive integrated customer preference research data systems, as well as, um, people e-mailing us to tell us what they want. In fact, since we have this whole "self-esteem" problem and generally hate all our own work, we rely on you, the consumer, to determine what, if anything, about us has any worth whatsoever, since it has been scientifically proven that popularity equals quality.

What this means in practical terms is a) if I made a track as part of a long mix or radio show a while back and people keep e-mailing me asking about it, I may eventually release it individually, and b) if something I did a half-ass job on gets played on a major nationwide radio morning show, maybe I'll then consider spiffing it up a bit. With the latter in mind I give you:

Party Ben

Duck Sauce vs. Michael Jackson
"Beat Sauce" (NEW VERSION!)

Click to play:

First of all, the actual "original" Duck Sauce track hit the interwebs so I got to use that instead of the Manila Killa edit which I had been using, and secondly, I was able to track down a higher-quality Jacko acapella, making the whole thing much cleaner. Smarter or less ill-advised, not so much.

Also here are a couple random items:

  • Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone (Party Ben's Alone in Baltimore mix)
    Right-click to download: 12MB 320kbps mp3

    First heard as part of my guest mix for Jules Dance Show back in June of 2009, I actually have received quite a few e-mails about this one, and also kind of like it, actually, myself, but for some reason never got around to posting it individually. It's way too late for most people to probably care but here it is.

  • Cali Swag District - Teach Me How to Dougie (Party Ben's Bmore Remix)
    Right-click to download: 8MB 320kbps mp3
    On further listening I wasn't really that happy with my first rework of "Dougie" which was in the style of Bart B More's MC Flipside remix, so I just decided to do a quick Baltimore-style edit. You heard it on House Nation last night, and here it is.
  • The xx vs. Débruit - "You Got the What"
    Right-click to download: 15MB 320kbps mp3
    Hey here's two things I actually really love, put together for, well, mostly my own amusement. Leave it to a recent DJ set to discover that last year's xx version of Florence + the Machine's "You Got the Love" (itself a cover of the original Source and Candi Staton track from 1986, which I'm old enough to remember, speaking of old) goes great with the neo-Afropop funky beats of French producer Débruit's "Nigeria What," a track that is one of my favorites of the year. It's not much of anything, my little combo, but perhaps someone out there in internet-land will enjoy it.

Thanks for shopping, and for choosing Party Ben Information Systems for your dance party needs.
