Crazy In The Deep – Divide & Kreate

9 Mar

Rolling In The Deep by Adele has taken the UK by storm. One of England’s most exciting homegrown talents, the single was released on the 29th of November last year, and has gone on to be critically acclaimed by almost everyone who is lucky enough to listen to it. Personally, I love Adele because she can actually sing. There’s really no debating the fact that she has a mesmerising voice, and it’s great to see someone with huge natural talent being justly rewarded. To those of you who aren’t so keen on mash-ups, I’m sorry. I know that we seem to have gone a little bit mash-up mad at the moment, but I just had to post this.

We all remember Crazy by Gnarls Barclay. For a while that was the song. We heard it everywhere. Well, just sit back and gawk at how well Divide & Kreate have done to pick these two out and put them over each other. Pretty awesome huh? Drop us an email if you want the mp3, and we’ll try and sort you out. Also, if you haven’t heard the original Rolling In The Deep yet, here’s an awesome live performance by Adele:

Pandamonium – The White Panda

2 Mar

Yup, time to party again because our favourite mashup duo are back with an awesome third album, hot off the press (released yesterday). Pandamonium is a titanic 40-track party soundtrack, featuring a few standout combinations that I’m going to walk you through.

First of all, there’s Infinite Dream, which we already covered earlier. So that’s that one out of the way. Next up has to be Tinie Tempah’s combo with Sneaky Sound System. Like the other’s that The White Panda so often produce, it’s just a good, fun party song!

Another cool tune on the album is called Shake It To Me, which features Ian Carey, Timbaland, and Nelly Furtado. This one’s unfortunately only 53 seconds long, but when it gets into the real thing, it’s a great tune.

If this next track doesn’t put a smile on your face, then I’m pretty sure there’s nothing that anyone can do for you. I Want Brooklyn Back features Jay-Z and the Jackson 5. With the Jackson’s backing, it’s almost impossible to sound bad, but Jay-Z actually adds a great touch.

Now I’ll be honest. I hate the original of Like A G6. But The White Panda save it for me with their awesome tune Why A G6? It’s the Far East Movement’s unimaginative song set to a great backing my Supermode, and you gotta hear it:

Don’t get me wrong, this whole album is packed full of tracks that will make your party. It’s just… there are 40 of them, so I had no choice but to give you my personal highlights. The idea with this album is that you’re supposed to play it all the way through, and each song plays into one another. That’s partly why these tracks here don’t really fully do it justice. And that’s the reason you should download it totally for free from here.

Infinite Dream – The White Panda

4 Feb

Ahead of the release of The White Panda’s new album, they’ve dropped a little preview. Just as Guru Josh Project’s hit was starting to fade from the memory a little bit, this duo have given it a shockingly good revival. The tune mashes Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream with Infinity. This one has to get you up and dancing, it’s a real party song. Smack this on, and enjoy your new reputation as ‘that cool kid who has the tunes.’ They’re also giving it away totally for free, so click here to download it!

The guys are also doing a pretty cool thing where they’re giving a lucky fan a chance to name their new album, so if you’re interested in getting a little fame (who wouldn’t be?) then head on over to their official site and submit your ideas.

Fireflies Goin’ Down (Young Joc vs Owl City) – The White Panda

18 Aug

After seeing how popular yesterday’s Mash-Up post was, we decided to be really nice and give you two in two days. Up next is The White Panda’s Fireflies Goin’ Down which is a mix of Owl City’s hit song Fireflies, and Yung Joc’s It’s Goin’ Down. The White Panda are on fire, having just recently released an album of Mash-Ups called Rematch.

We love it because it’s so happy, and we really like to be happy. We also think that it’s actually better than both original songs, so comment and let us know what you think.

You can download this song here, check out the album here, or look at their official site.

 

Red Hot Chilipop (Lil Wayne & Kanye West vs Red Hot Chili Peppers) – White Noise

17 Aug

For our first Mash-Up post, we’ll give you something insanely good. It’s the driving guitar riff behind the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song Can’t Stop combined with Lil Wayne’s vocals on his mega hit Lollipop. It makes for a truly awesome track, and quite frankly, just works.

White Noise has been coming up with some pretty awesome stuff lately, so it’s worth keeping tabs on him, and we’ll help you out if he comes up with anything else awesome.
