Another anniversary of the Katrina disaster has come around. DJ Le Clown has produced a track and had this to say in rememberance:
I don't know what to say part that when us French saw what happened to
New Orleans, we were deeply shocked to see such a disaster in the most
developed country of ze World and that the rescue made more than 2
days to come... Then Ray Nagin interview was on all TVs here in europe,
so i couldn't resist to use it with Indian reservation (a wonderful
song released in 1972 ! ) and make a kinda political boot with it , so
this boot (which is more a remix indeed) is for my New Orlean's bro
& sisters (black or not) and for this town of N.O. which is for us French a symbol of music and brotherhood between our 2 nations...
I’m sure you’ve heard a few mashups of Rhianna’s “Umbrella”
at this point, because there seems to be a billion out there
(approximately). My choice is a pretty
straightforward mash from the appropriately self described “human mashup
machine,” DJ Topcat. Next time you get
that wedding DJ gig and someone requests some top 40 ish, and someone else
requests “Red, Red Wine,” you know what to throw on.
Our very good friend DJ Paul V. just delivered a brand new mashup, that he recently whipped together for us over here at M-Town. Paul V. is a very busy man now a days in the Los Angeles area, between putting on his very popular radio shows "Neon Noise" and "The Smashmix" on Los Angeles' Indie 103.1, DJ'ing at some of the hottest clubs in the area and of course putting together stellar mashups such as this one.
-This mashup started last week, when I stumbled upon this really cool Boston guy named Twink, who makes tracks using toy pianos, xylophones, Casios, and 8-bit gaming sounds. He'd posted up his version of 'Axel F' and I loved it! As I was in the middle of making a "Neon Noise" mashup set, my brain said 'Mash
it with something!' So I kept it in the 80's pocket by using the vocal from George Kranz's 'Din Daa Daa'. I hope you find it fun, smooth, 'n creamy - just like cheese from a can!" -DJ Paul V.
