Gregg Gillis on the Girl Talk Live Show

07/18/2012

I’ve been seeing a continuous discussion over the last couple of weeks about live electronic performance. I’m not really interested in debating anyone’s points, but I thought I’d break down my own approach. I’ve gone over various aspects of this countless times in interviews, so this is nothing new, really, but I thought it might Read More

Kanye // Pretty Lights

Torpeedoh – Sky High (Kanye West // Pretty Lights Mashup)

05/02/2011

Ya can’t get much better than Pretty Lights remixing Kanye, but a PL // Kanye mashup is a close second. In this mash, Torpeedoh remixes Kanye’s “Touch the Sky” with PL’s “Maybe Tomorrow”. I didn’t know if he could pull it off at first and, although, it does seem cluttered at times, overall it’s a Read More

SOJORN – Bittersweet Collage

03/24/2011

I’m not usually into super mashups. I like focus. This kind of has a focus: it’s a tribute to 90’s music (mostly hip-hop). Sojorn: “Bittersweet Collage” [audio: http://www.box.net/shared/static/q404sfnkr6.mp3] Set to the beat of a “Bittersweet Symphony,” SOJORN’s “Bittersweet Collage,” brings us back to the simpler days and that 90’s nostalgia (if you can remember the Read More

Front man and the creative mind behind the group, Josh Hodges, describes the album as “happy music about death.” Nice. Recently, Hodges has been posting original Read More

[Remixes] Bon Iver & Matt Kim

11/24/2010

“It’s the remix BITCH!” Hard to imagine “spicin’” up Bon Iver. Then again, who would have thought a folk singer from Wisconsin would collaborate with Kanye West? This remix of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” by Das Kapital is a perfect balance. It would be easy to over weigh Bon Iver’s acoustic and minimalist sound with Read More
