A few years ago I made a track mixing together Girls Aloud ‘Jump For My Love’ and a cover of the Yazz super-hit ‘The Only Way is Up’ by the Kinky Boys – The result was quite a good mash up that still gets played today – it’s quite a thrill watching people dance to your own work in a club!
Mash up’s are also something my friend, DJ Spook, is quite fond of too, one of his best being Upside Down World We Live In – which if you haven’t already guessed is a combination of Diana Ross and Alcazar – something he completed around the same time I did mine.
Fast forward a couple of years to last week and I find a half finished mix, sent by DJ Marky Manc, waiting for me in my inbox. Consisting of nothing but mash-up’s, it gave me an idea… I adapted what I had received, slightly, and added my own tracks. There’s so many artists and tracks in this mix it really is hard to see where one track finishes and the other starts. It works quite well. But I probably won’t ever do it again…
