So last week Max Tannone released a new set of tracks called “Mic Check 1234!” Max is the artist that released Jaydiohead (possibly my favorite all time Black album remix). I got a lot of response from people about how much they like the album, Jaydiohead, and the rest of his stuff, which I enjoy but thought was sort of “old hat”. I mean Jaydiohead is 3 years old. So I thought I’d take a second to share some of my favorite mashups, all of which are legally provided for free download by the artists who created them.
He also has an album “Something For Everyone” that I really like, but I can’t find a direct download for it.
There are days where E-603 is all I want to listen to. He is less vulgar than GirlTalk, just as creative, but not quite as intricate.
A couple of things I should probably mention about GirlTalk:
1) The first two are free albums, the others are “pay what you want” which means you can download them for free or pay for them. I recommend downloading either Feed the Animals or Night Ripper for free first, wrap your head around the complexity and awesomeness of what is going on and then consider paying for the other albums.
2) The content of these albums can be vulgar, but I guess what do you expect when 80+% are mixed samples from popular rap music.
3) I saw GirlTalk live at Bonaroo a few years ago. It was EPIC!
Enjoy, and please share any other mashup artists you like. Or any other artists that offer up their music for free download.
