Mixes


Info

Date

Hot Chip "Over and Over" (Party Ben's Smell of Repetition remix)

[Mashup]

This is obviously a bit of a riff on the Boyz Noise mix of Kaiser Chiefs, but it's also got "I Feel Love" in it.


01-10-2006

Mylo vs. Miami Sound Machine - "Conga Pressure"

[Mashup]

Machine
Well, this cracks me up at least. See cause there's that other one by those Phil 'n' Dog guys that was like a mega-smash... perhaps when they spin at Bootie in November we can have a "pressure-off"?


01-10-2006

Gnarls Barkley vs. Donna Summer - "I Feel Crazy"

[Mashup]

This uses Karl G's bootleg remix as a jumping-off point and basically just layers the synth loop from Ms. Summer's legendary little number over the whole thing. I know there's like 500 "Crazy" boots out there but my excuse is this was part of the Rinse mix so it's not like a real mashup or anything and plus it sounds more like a dance


01-10-2006

Gorillaz vs. No Doubt vs. Deep Purple - "Hella Dare You to Smoke"

[Mashup]

Something silly I made for Bootie that people ended up asking about enough for me to overcome my shame and post it here.


01-10-2006

Switch vs. Khia vs. Laid Back -"Get Laid with Khia (2006 remix)"

[Mashup]

Made specially for Club Future's Country/Electro theme night


05-04-2006

Yeah Yeah Yeahs vs. Company B -"Fascinated by Gold"

[Mashup]

Certain former music editors for the East Bay Express and current music editors for the new New Times-y Village Voice (?!?!!!!) may think this sucks before they even hear it, but, they're dumb.


05-04-2006

Veruca Salt vs. Pussycat Dolls -"Dontcha / Seether"

[Mashup]

The original is almost two years old at this point so I figured why not throw in the latest track to sample the Original Bongo Band's "Apache."


05-04-2006

Yeah Yeah Yeahs vs. Green Day vs. Oasis vs. Love & Rockets vs. Samantha Fox - "Golden Boulevard"

[Mashup]

This is pretty silly and I wish I had the actual a capella, but the Diplo mix stands in okay here I guess.


05-04-2006

Yeah Yeah Yeahs vs. Green Day vs. Oasis vs. Love & Rockets vs. Samantha Fox - "Golden Boulevard"

[Megamix]

Certain former music editors for the East Bay Express and current music editors for the new New Times-y Village Voice (?!?!!!!) may think this sucks before they even hear it, but, they're dumb


05-04-2006

Death Cab for Maddy -"Hung Up on Soul"

[Mashup]

Wanted to make a Death Cab remix; got distracted by Madonna


18-02-2006

John Denver -"Thank God I'm a Country Boy (Party Ben's City Boy Remix)"

[Remix]


18-02-2006

The White Stripes vs. Eric B & Rakim - Pump Up the Doorbell

[Mashup]

Back to my usual throwaway dancefloor sellout mashups using obvious tracks and silly breakdowns.


10-02-2006

D4Lvs The Surfaris-Wipeout Taffy

[Mashup]

D4L's "Laffy Taffy"
The Surfaris "Wipeout."


10-02-2006

Louis XIV vs. Devo vs. Fatboy Slim vs. The Knack -Finding Out Sharona is Blind

[Mashup]

A little sloppy (a little?) but an attempt to make a dancefloor track out of Aaron Axelsen's original idea of putting "My Sharona" with the Louis XIV track. I like that Louis XIV song, by the way -- lots of people are hating on them for being indie rock posers, or whatever, but that song reminds me of The Fall circa "This Nation's Saving Grace," and that can only be good


10-02-2006

Led Snooppelin-Drop It Like It's a Whole Lotta Love

[Mashup]


10-02-2006

Nine Inch Queens-Insane, Medicated Hand

[Mashup]

Two QOTSA album tracks ("Medication," "Everybody Knows That You Are Insane") in unholy union with Trent's ubiquitous vocal from "The Hand that Feeds."


10-02-2006

Coldplay vs. Kraftwerk - "Computer Talk"

[Mashup]


19-12-2005

New Order vs Madonna - Bizarre Light Triangle (Party Ben's Please Dance mix)

[Mashup]

(New Order "Bizarre Love Triangle" vs. Madonna "Ray of Light".. made specially for Bootie 1/14/04)


14-01-2004

Eminem - Without Me ( Nobody Listens To Techno Mix)

[Remix]

Featuring One Up Front, Plump DJs and Moby. Conceptualized during an endless drive back from Coachella, listening to "Without Me" on the radio.


Yeah Yeah Yeahs vs. Andrea Doria - Bucci Maps

[Mashup]

More of a blueprint for somebody with actual talent and maybe a drum machine to make a good mix of "Maps." Anyone? Slide? Hello?


Linkin Park vs. Luke Chable - Somewhere in Melburn (Party Ben Didn't Do Much Mix)

[Mashup]

Aaron Axelsen of LIVE 105's Saturday night electronic music show Subsonic played the Luke Chable song at like 3 in the morning, and I was like, "What is that sample from? Hmmm..." Three hours later I figured it out: Linkin Freakin' Park. So I thought, why not add some more?


Beastie Boys vs. Afrika Bambaata & Soulsonic Force - Ch-Check Out the Rock

[Mashup]

Not quite as frenetic and hyper as the "Old Skool Mix" , this is a little more dancefloor-friendly.


Fugazi vs. Destiny's Child - Independent Room

[Mashup]

I don't understand why there aren't more "Waiting Room" boots - the damn thing's got like 2 full minutes of instrumental sections, it's exactly at hip-hop speed, and it's a freakin' classic. This one seemed kind of obvious, so hopefully someone else can come up with something better.


U2 vs. Lyrics Born - Callin' on Sunday

[Mashup]

The phenomenal East Bay hip-hop genius and all-around nice guy gets the Party Ben (mis) treatment with "Sunday Bloody Sunday" -- yes, I already did one with U2 and Janet but you can ignore that one because this one's way more better.


Khia vs Laid BackGet Laid With Khia

[Mashup]

Credit to Bay Area bootlegger DJ Earworm for reminding me that bootlegs don't all have to be totally retarded A+B mashups, but can use three or more songs, for more added fun times. This is still kind of retarted but at least has three great tunes in it.


Eminem vs. Stereo MCs vs Eagles - Just Lose My Mind (One of These Nights)

[Mashup]

My whole point here is really to show the similarity between the bassline in Stereo MC's "Elevate My Mind" and the Eagles "One of These Nights," so don't make fun of me for making another Eminem boot.


Green Day vs. Oasis vs. Travis vs. Aerosmith vs. Eminem - Boulevard of Broken Songs

[Megamix]

Ballady! You know, I went looking for the real original Aerosmith "Dream On" song to stick on the end of this, and I was under deadline for the Sixx Mixx and all, so I couldn't go to the record store, and it wasn't on iTunes, so I thought "where can I get me some Aerosmith," and then like a special mashup delivery boy, Eminem brought me all the Aerosmith I needed, and even shouted a little bit over it, to signify his approval. Thanx Em. Friends 4 evah.


Blursabian - There's No Other LSF

[Mashup]

That's Blur vs. Kasabian mind you. A polarizing little mix, with some apparently anghlophilic souls gushing with praise, and some apparently anglophobic types running away screaming.


Daft Punk vs Queen - Another One Bites da Funk

[Mashup]


U2 vs. Way Out West - Vertigo (Breaks Mix)

[Mashup]

If I had a drum machine, I'd make my own beee-eee-eeats, so I wouldn't have to steeeeal them, all over this laaaaand! I'd hammer out remixes! I'd hammer out boo-oootlegs! I'd hammer out original tracks that sound like the Chems, aaaa-aaa-aaall over this laaaaaaaaand…


Faihless - Mass Destruction (George W Mix)

[Remix]

Faithless - Mass Destruction
Samples from Geoerge W Bush

(05:52)

The Cure vs. Black Box - Everybody Inbetween

[Mashup]


Incubus vs No doubt (Plus Devo!!!) - Hellamaniac

[Mashup]

I've been telling anyone within earshot that Incubus totally stole the riff in "Megalomaniac" from Devo's "Freedom of Choice," and nobody would listen to me. "Yes yes, sure they did Ben," everyone said, "now put down the bottle and go back in your little room and make more farty noises for our big deal radio station." But then along came a No Doubt a capella (thanks McSleazy!) and it all came together. Now everyone has to listen to me. I was right, you fools, ahhh ha ha ha ha ha!!!


Beastie Boys vs. All Sorts of Vintage Techno -Ch-Check It Out" (Old Skool Mix)

[Megamix]

Making the new Beastie Boys single slightly less annoying! (Techno tracks include: Fast Eddie "Yo Yo Get Funky," Royal House (Todd Terry) "Can You Party," Inner City "Good Life," 808 State "Cubik," LA Style "James Brown is Dead." These songs are from when Uncle Ben used to go out to" raves," children! Way before iPods and everything!


Rapture vs. Tiga - Hot Lovers

[Mashup]


The Crystal Method vs. Howard Dean - Keep Dean Alive (Party Ben's Tom Harkin mix)

[Remix]

TCM's "Keep Hope Alive" + the Iowa speech) One of like 12 million Dean Scream bootlegs out there right now. It's nice to be a part of something greater than yourself.


Hot Hot Heat vs David Bowie -Let's Dance With Me (Party Ben's Get It, They Both Say Dance, Mix)

[Mashup]

(Hot Hot Heat "Talk To Me, Dance With Me" vs. David Bowie "Let's Dance") You know, the kids from Hot Hot Heat actually gave me a copy of the acapella from this song and I never made anything that great out of it. I think they might have been expecting some superstar David Morales-style megamix which I am unfortunately incapable of.


Beyonce vs Alphaville - Crazy In Japan (Party Ben's 10 Months Too Late Mix)

[Mashup]

Beyonce "Crazy In Love" vs. Alphaville "Big in Japan) Should I have called it Alphayonce? "Big in Love?" Beephaville? Mmmm, beef.


Lumidee vs Audioslave - Show Me How To Leave (Party Ben 11 Months Too Late Mashup)

[Mashup]


U2 vs. Janet Jackson - Control Bloody Control (Party Ben's Stuck in the 80s mix)

[Mashup]

U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday
Janet Jackson- Control


Outkast - Ben Ya

[Remix]

Inspired by Adam Freeland's brilliant dub-style reworking of Nirvana, "Smells Like Freeland"...this is not that good by about a zillion goodness-points


Jurassic 5 -What's Tricky

[Remix]

Featuring High Contrast & Run DMC


The Roots - The Seed 3.0 (Party Ben remix)

[Remix]

Featuring Lee Coombs' remix of New Order's "Crystal," and some other stuff I can't remember.


Fischer vs Nirvana - Smells Like Emerge (Party Ben incompetent mashup)

[Mashup]

Too my credit (?), I remarked on the similarities between the Spooner and Nirvana before Adam Freeland told me he was trying to mash these two up when he made "Smells Like Freeland." Apparently Tommie Sunshine has his own version that's much better, but this is all I have.


Fatboy Slim vs. Rolling Stones & stuff - Satisfaction Skank (Party Ben copycat mashup)

[Mashup]

For the record, I never claimed to have thought this idea up. I read about Fatboy's mix and decided to make my own, before even hearing his, incidentally. Turns out mine keeps the tempo of Rockafella Skank while his slows down for the Stones. This mix also erupts into silliness towards the end with a guitar solo from the soundtrack to "The Interns," some gonzo '60s party movie.


The Hives vs. The Prodigy - Hate To Smack My Bitch Up (Party Ben poorly executed mashup)

[Mashup]

Went through a couple revisions and never quite came together although the kids at Popscene have been known to shout "Smack my bitch up" during The Hives.


Chic vs. Beastie Boys vs. Franz Ferdinand - Chic Franzie Boys

[Mashup]

Once upon a Sixx Mixx, in June, 2004, I threw together Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out" and the Beasties' "Triple Trouble." "Funny," I thought, "they're like in the same key and stuff. Hmm, maybe I want a sandwich." About a month later, genius bootlegger and Friend of Bootie (TM) McSleazy announced his latest mashup item: Franzie Boys! Now, I take Mr. Sleazy at his word that he hadn't listened to that specific Mixx and came up with the idea on his own, and ultimately if I didn't have the brains to take a 1-minute segment of a Sixx Mixx to a full-length mashup, then it's really my own fault either way, and I wish him nothing but the greatest success. But, so, anyway, fast forward to like November of 2004, and I'm getting sick of reading reviews of the Beasties that mis-state the origin of the "Triple Trouble" sample as Chic's "Good Times," so instead of writing an angry letter to the editor, I just decided to make my point via the magic of audio, and it turns out you can put Franz Ferdinand over the top of it. Neat! So while you may accuse this item of being too similar to McSleazy's, I feel that our concurrent discovery of the two original tracks' similarity gives me some leeway. Plus he seems to like it. Am I boring you? Want a sandwich?


Coldplay vs. Punx -God Put A Smile Upon My Face (Ben X Parties On Your Face Mix)

[Mashup]
