fingertrouble: every nun needs a synthi (holy synth)
[personal profile] fingertrouble


I decided to stop doing mashups - for good this time, as in I took down all my old mashups and my own videos - back in August but felt sad for the tracks that almost made it, were nearly finished when I downed tools. So here are a few that I've tarted up for release - these are more downbeat but planning to finish the DJNoNo - Ballroom EP that was partly dropped at Crumplstock live mix I did last month

So here's Dark Dreams, which is Fleetwood Mac - Dreams vs a track from Dark Night Of The Soul, which is Sparklehorse vs Dangermouse and David Lynch. It might not last long on Soundcloud being FM, so here's a direct download.





And Lost At The Beach, which happened fiddling around with Lost In The Supermarket by The Clash (one of my favourite songs...ever!) and realising that it didn't work with Steely Dan but Beach House - Myth works just fine. Download here. Also on Soundcloud, but given SC has turned it's back on the mashup and bedroom remixers that made it's name, might not be there for long.

Why the fuck would you ever stop doing mash ups? You have fantastic taste.


These are fabulous. I would like you to show me how to do this.

It's a long story...in every scene or group you have people who are 'in' and those who are 'out' - I was always in the 'out' group, never accepted. I kind of accepted that until I finally got stabbed in the back by someone I thought was an old friend, which woke me up that most of these 'friends' were nothing but.

Thanks! It's not that hard, especially with Ableton but it just takes a lot of time at first, although Ableton's warping facility makes it much easier now. The hard thing is finding the combinations, either hearing them or trying things, and knowing whether to keep fiddling with them, or drop it. I started with Acid Pro which made things a lot harder, and had to learn the hard way about not forcing combinations, but after a while you get an 'ear' for what might work.

Well, I think you're wonderful. You can be "in" my group, if you'd like. Not many people. But, it's not due to exclusivity. lol

" The hard thing is finding the combinations, either hearing them or trying things, and knowing whether to keep fiddling with them, or drop it."

I suspected there was no way out of this crucible. But I'd hoped.

You're are just lovely. And, so are some of the mashups you posted. Thanks. You have much more cultivated taste than I do. :)

I'm so sorry you're stopping, because these are amazing. I've always loved your clever and creative mashups.

I've enjoyed your mashups for many years as well. I also understand the issues that you encountered.
