The Hood Internet continues their awesome series of retrospective music mixes, as they dive a little deeper into the 1990s. This time out, expect to be serenaded by the likes of Big Audio Dynamite, PM Dawn, Nirvana, De La Soul, Blind Melon, Whitney Houston, Radiohead, Faith No More, and more.
THE BEST Remixes
We try to avoid politics here on, but we think most people agree that the winner of the 2020 U.S. Vice Presidential debate was the fly that parked it on Mike Pence’s head. Remixer Eclectic Method got to work quickly recapping the most notable event of the night with this amusing little ditty, vocalized by Kamala Harris herself.
Remixer and Internet sensation Neil Cicierega fills our minds and ears with a fantastically immersive track that deftly combines all kinds of sounds from pop culture from the familiar Yahoo! yodel to the theme from Spongebob Squarepants to Psycho Killer. Hit Play, crank up the volume, and get ready for a wild ride.
The music video for Fatboy Slim’s track Weapon of Choice is one of our all-time faves. Between Spike Jonze’s understated direction and Christopher Walken’s dance moves, it’s a true classic. But what happens when you swap the 2nd and 4th beats of the track? Steve Badach did just that, and the result is just as infectious.
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.)
Oo-ohh, here he comes… Remixer DJ Cummerbund presents a love letter to Danny Devito’s “Man-Cheetah” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a track that manages to blend Hall and Oates, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and Chris Isaak into a deliciously spicy bowl of musical gumbo.
Microsoft Windows has a long history of throwing annoying and cryptic error messages at us. Video artist 4096 decided to memorialize some of the operating system’s various foibles over the years with a fun-filled electronic music remix inspired by this Japanese video. MacOS even gets into the game at 1:24.
(PG-13: Language) Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia melds pop, disco, and funk into a chart-topping dancefloor banger. But Kyle Brauch gave the album a whole new sound by deftly remixing every track with 1990s hip-hop. The mashup includes raps from DOA, Xzibit, DMX, Dre, 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, and more.
If Van Halen made disco music, it might have sounded something like this crazy mashup by DJ Cummerbund that blends together the hair band’s rock hit Jump with Gloria Gaynor’s dance floor anthem I Will Survive. It’s hard to believe these songs were released just 5 years apart.
Remix artist William Maranci did a great job combining the warm and inviting sounds of Wintergatan’s musical marble machine with Gorillaz’ track Feel Good Inc. As its musician and inventor cranks it up, Maranci has to fool with the BPM a bit, but that’s part of the fun.
Bob Marley music has a distinctively reggae sound. But in the hands of electronic remix artist Eclectic Method, it takes on a whole new vibe. This wonderfully chill edit was actually put together back in 2004, but the Method’s Jonny Wilson says he forgot to upload it until now.
Terminator: Dark Fate might have underwhelmed at the box office, but we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the franchise. Now, thanks to editor Fabrice Mathieu, multiple T-800s are sent back in time by Skynet to protect Cyberdyne, but John Connor has reprogrammed them to attack each other for our amusement.
Everybody’s rockin! Get up! Everybody’s gonna move their feet! Remix artist DJ Cummerbund brings us another unlikely pairing: KISS and The B-52s, two groups at their peak of popularity around the same time, but each with something very different to bring to the table.
Daft Punk are true maestros, but so much of what they’ve achieved wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the funk, soul, and disco songs which provided sampling material for so many of their tunes. Tuneid compares some original tracks with Daft Punk’s remixes.
YouTube has some pretty strict rules about including copyrighted music in videos, but if the snippets are short enough, you can get away with it. To see what he could get away with, remix artist Eclectic Method decided to make a whole new song entirely out of tiny bits of Jimi Hendrix tracks.
Musical mashup master Bill McLintock’s track will drive you mad. It’s another impossible combination that somehow just works, as Kool & The Gang’s Celebration meets Quiet Riot’s Metal Health. Crank it up to 11 as funk and metal make beautiful music together.
On July 16, 1969 at 8:32 am Eastern Time, Apollo 11 lifted off and headed towards the moon. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking mission, and astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, Eclectic Method created a track using sound samples from the mission and the events leading up to it.
We loved just about every moment of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, including the opening scene where Miles is singing along with Post Malone and Swae Lee’s Sunflower. Eclectic Method sliced and diced up the track and footage from the animated flick to create a whole new EDM track.
