Here’s a new mash-up that I put together today. Britney Spears’ “If You Seek Amy” on top of “Rock With U” by Janet Jackson. Enjoy!

Alanis Morissette – You Oughta Know 2009 (DJ ZAX vs. Wideboys Club Mix)

It is rare for an Alanis acapella to see the light of day, so when the vocals from “You Oughta Know” surfaced nearly 15 years after the song was released, I knew I had to do something with them.

In case you missed it or want to re-live the night, here are two hours of my set at the BOC last night, recorded from 11 PM – 1 AM. It’s a mix of banging Electro beats with a sprinkling of Hip-Hop.

Stream the audio here, download to your computer, or load it up on your iPod to take to take my beats out and about with you.

Alanis Morissette’s “Humps”

humps

 

 

 

 

I am a huge Alanis Morissette fan, but it is rare to have an opportunity to remix or mash her songs up because she rarely releases acapellas or instrumentals. When she parodied The Black Eyed Peas in 2007, I was inspired to make this mash up combining the two versions. It was released as a Bootie exclusive on their April 2007 Top 10 list.

In case you were living under a rock in 2007, here’s Alanis’ classic viral video.

“When Doves Cry” Electro Remix

Prince vs. Otto Von Schirach

Otto Von Schirach did a dirty electro cover of Prince’s “When Doves Cry” called “Sliced Doves On Codeine.” Otto’s mix is cool but his vocals on the track are a little too scary for me, so I mashed up Otto’s beat and Prince’s original version into this.

“Freak Like Me” Freaky B’more Mash

Adina Howard vs. DJ Class

This is another one I’ve been playing out for the last month and that was featured on one of my recent mixtapes. I’ve always loved “Freak Like Me” by Adina Howard. When I heard the beat from DJ Class’ new track “I’m The Ish,” I thought Adina’s vocals would sound nice over top, turning the song into a B’more stomper.

Get Loose & Get Fresh // MIXTAPES

Both of these mixtapes were recorded live during my set at the BOC on Sunday, January 11, 2009.

It’s a dual release. “Get Loose” was recorded earlier in the evening and features pop and R&B hits, while “Get Fresh” was recorded during later in the evening and features more high energy electro beats — which side do you prefer?

“Hollaback Cameo”

gwen-cameo

This mashup was my first to gain some traction. It was blogged about quite a bit, including notable mentions on Stereogum and USA Today’s pop culture blog.

I made it in 2005 after buying a used 12″ of Cameo’s “Word Up” at Amoeba. I began spinning the instrumental and wondered what would fit with it — I played the “Hollaback Girl” acapella and it sounded pretty cool. So I decided to do a proper mashup. Sometimes it’s easy like that.
