Fatboy Slim dropped this awesome 27-minute DJ mix celebrating the 25th anniversary of his 1998 album You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby. The mix incorporates excerpts from Right Here, Right Now, Praise You, and The Rockafeller Skank, as well as music from Gorillaz, Eminem, The Rolling Stones, Ramones, and more.
Get up, come on, get down with the Muppets! DJ Cummerbund cleverly combined Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s Muppet Show version of Mahna Mahna with scratchy wails of Disturbed’s lead singer David Draiman to give us another musical mashup we had no idea we needed so badly.
Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was beloved for his incredible vocal talents and songwriting skills. Now Andre Antunes has taken part of his performance of Akhiyan Udeek Diyan and blessed it with a heavy metal companion track. The result is a sublime mix of two very different cultures. Turn on captions for the translated lyrics.
Two of our favorite bands are Daft Punk and Beastie Boys. So when Dangerous Minds turned us on to this 2014 remix album by producer Peter Chapman aka COINS, we had turn it up loud. The free-to-play album includes eight amazing remixes, kicking things off with a groovy combo of Alive and Intergalactic.
South African musician The Kiffness enjoys adding his own musical tracks to viral videos. In this clip, he took footage from a guy known for his beachside beverage sales technique and turned it into a smooth tropical jam. For some reason, we’re craving Coca-Cola Light now.
Remix artist William Maranci created this musical mashup which uses the catchy music from The Home Depot commercials as its hook. The track incorporates diverse sound bites like Funky Cold Medina, You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, Work Bitch, and Here in My Garage. From William’s new album The Flamingo Café.
Musician Astrophysics takes songs from various genres, and slathers them with a thick layer of 1980s electronic sounds, then complements them with appropriately retro graphics. There’s lots of great stuff to enjoy on their YouTube channel, but this synthwave remix of Outkast’s 2003 hit Hey Ya! is our favorite (so far.)
Just when we finally purged Los Del Río’s mind-numbing hit Macarena from the furthest recesses of our brains, remixer Bill McClintock had to go and put it right back in. Only this time, it’s been combined with the Disturbed track Stupify. Yep, this is definitely another disturbing creation.
Dustin over at There I Ruined It absolutely annihilates another classic song by turning it into the worst version of itself. His terrible Dixieland jazz version of Queen’s We Will Rock You will certainly have Freddie Mercury turning over in his grave.
There I Ruined It continues to live up to their name with another cursed reimagining of a popular song. This time, they took the Disturbed track Down with the Sickness and made it sound like a bubbly 1950s Doo-Wop tune. Love it or hate it, consider supporting their fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
As we’ve learned before, everything is a remix. In this particular case, digital artist Hayati Evren remixed pieces of classical works and transformed them into a popular meme. The finished image will be part of the Evren’s “Clash of Time” NFT collection on OpenSea.
After The Kiffness remixed the gurgly sounding Alugalug Cat and subsequently upgraded it with an international symphony, the track continued to make the round on social media. It eventually landed in the hands of MiMo, who stitched together Kiff’s beat with a bunch of other musicians from TikTok and enhanced it with a funky mix of jazz and rap.
Back in the day, The Beatles rarely licensed their music for use in television or movies. But if George Harrison had lent his music to a TV series, it might have sounded something like DJ Cummerbund’s reimagining of My Sweet Lord as the theme song from Full House.
The latest remix from The Kiffness takes an Altai throat singing video by Bai Terek and gives it a funky new beat. The words of the original track are a blessing of goodwill to their native Siberian land, and we consider videos like this a blessing to the Internet.
Filmmaker Kirby Ferguson reboots his 2011 documentary series on remixing, sampling, and borrowing. With the advent of social media platforms like TikTok and improvements in streaming media, it was time for an update of the concept in the context of today’s technologies.
Wax Audio blended together the sounds of two very different bands with seemingly little in common. But both Iron Maiden and Frankie Goes to Hollywood share more than just British roots and 1984 hit albums – they both created music inspired by the works of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
The Kiffness remixed another internet video, this time starting with a clip of workers in Thailand doing manual pile driving while singing a song. Kiff’s take on the track adds just the right amount of drum, bass, and tamborine, along with appropriate lyrics. Gotta get that pole in the ground!
Musician The Kiffness continues his trend of remixing funny-sounding cats, this time creating a groovy backbeat for the gurgly Numnum Cat. After making his solo remix, he was once again joined by musicians from around to globe to add a little international flavor to the track.
Boom boom, akalaka laka boom! Remix master DJ Cummerbund goes prehistoric with this mashup, combining music from Mötley Crüe, Was (Not Was), The Gap Band, Pantera, and Soundgarden. Featuring bonus cameos by Jeff Goldblum, Mario and Luigi, Bob-Omb, the cast of Dinosaurs, and of course Randy “Macho Man” Savage.
