Sound of Gangstas (Blank & Jones vs. Yung Bruh Feat. The Game & J-Holiday)
Sound of Gangstas (Blank & Jones vs. Yung Bruh Feat. The Game & J-Holiday) by DJ Dain
What do you get when you combine a cheesy 90's Classic House track with the vocal from a modern rap single? Something like this I suppose. Rap vocals always sound better over four-on-th-floor beats to me.

Big Girls Got Soul From Their Mamas (Hasim vs. Bow Wow vs. Will.I.Am)
Big Girls Got Soul From Their Mamas (Hasim vs. Bow Wow vs. Will.I.Am) by DJ Dain
Kickin' it Old-Skool with this one. A little digging around (and a lot of chopping and reediting) paid off. I managed to get the two vocal tracks to complement each other with alternating verses/choruses. Thank goodness I had a long version of that Hasim track!

Do Your Voyager Thing (Daft Punk & Dominique Torti vs. Basement Jaxx)
Do Your Voyager Thing (Daft Punk & Dominique Torti vs. Basement Jaxx) by DJ Dain
Yet another Daft Punk mash-up - but this time its a special remix exclusive to the Japanese release of "Daft Club." Dominique Torti's Wildstyle edit incorporates some funky beat-repeating effects that flow very well with the scat-like vocal renditions that pepper Basement Jaxx's "Do Your Thing." It's fun and funky without being too intense either - just a nice light-hearted groove throughout.

Droppin' The Tardis (The Timelords, KLF & Dada Life vs. DJ Laz Ft. Flo-Rida, Pitbull & Casley) [Clean]
Droppin' The Tardis (Mash-up) [Clean] by DJ Dain
...and we're back! Sorry for the extended delay - I've been quite busy overseas at Harlow studying (and sightseeing, partying and shopping too), but I'm back on the island and ready to rock again! I figured this track would be a good way to kick off another semester. Dada Life's remix of the classic mash-up dance hit "Doctorin' the Tardis" has a great club-stomping beat and bass-line to it, but it felt it still needed a catchy vocal hook. Thankfully artists like Flo-Rida and Pitbull seem to be producing catchy club hits on mass. I'm honestly not sure how I feel about their original track sampling Benni Benassi's "Satisfaction," considering that old track has arguably become the new "Children" by Robert Miles - but that's a discussion for another day.
Remember to revisit this blog every Monday for new mash-ups!
