On the way into work this morning, I listened to the mutantpop.net podcast for the first time. All I can say is WOW. Mashups are really getting amazing.
Jungle brothers mixed with Ray Charles, Gorillaz w/ some Brit rapper I can’t remember, this is seriously good shit. Extremely well produced.
I guess, the thing is, if you’ve got someone sifting through the mashups, only playing you the best ones, you end up with the cream of the crop.
Oh, and I found out something interesting. Dangermouse, the guy who made the Beatles/Jay-Z mashup, The Grey Album, is the producer for the newest Gorillaz album, which I’ve been listening to. It’s decent — I don’t think it’s as good as their first album, but it’s pretty good.
