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.
The original version of “Touch My Body” was too slow to really get the club jumpin’, so I set to work crafting it into the club banger I’d been hoping for. The relatively obscure instrumental of Australian pop-singer Ricki-Lee’s “Can’t Touch It” was the perfect fit. I also added in Fatman Scoop to hype up the track — he always manages to drive people into a frenzy on the dancefloor. This remix was released on a special promotional remix vinyl.
Sibley is one to watch. A Bay Area native, she’s now working hard in L.A. launching her music career with legendary producer Marc Kinchen. “Donuts” is a catchy, sweet pop song that’ll have you on a run to Krispy Kreme in no time.
“I eat donuts man, I eat donuts. I eat donuts man, I eat donuts. Your car, your cash, your ice, don’t want it. Donuts man, I eat donuts.” Word!
Check out the house mashup I made with Mason/Princess Superstar’s “Perfect [Exceeder].”
A friend challenged me to turn Chromeo’s brief “Mommas Boy” acapella into a house stomper. I laid it over Illicit’s remix of Madison Avenue’s “Who the Hell Are You,” did some effects with the vocals — and here’s what came out. Now start stompin’!
