Couldn’t leave this blog Christmas post-less, so here we go, a quick
list of fun mashes and remixes for the holiday season.
My favorite Christmas mashup. Putting little Michael over the Cee Lo
beat works so well, since they happen to have such compatible swings
to them. Really a holiday gem.
EDM Christmas song… just passing through… Yeah, it’s a bit
gimmicky, but if you like Mid-Tempo moombah-ish tracks, it’s worth a
listen. If you don’t know what that means, give it a shot anyway.
Now you know I love me some Schmolli – his choices for sampling work
beautifully. There’s a general lack of seriousness in his tracks
which comes without the typical stupidity of forced-joke mashups.
Anyways, this Christmas themed one is no different… although the
matching viedo is admittedly pretty silly.
MojoChronic is actually a commonly featured artist on Santastic
(Schmolli has been featured too, actually) – a Christmas-themed
mashup compilation that gets released (almost) every year. There’s a
lot of material in this collection, and I encourage anyone with a
free afternoon to skim through an album or two to find some favorites
of your own. Both of these tracks are great because they carry their
zeppelin/christmas theme without sounding forced or overly gimicky.
Dirty Boyz – All I Want for Christmas (Is to Get it Crunk)
I don’t have anything to say about this, other then you should
probably keep it off the playlist for the family christmas party.
