Have you ever wanted to hear a Gaga-fronted rock band? Have you ever wanted to head bang to Bad Romance? Here’s your chance to do both. Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance mashed up with The Offspring’s Self Esteem.
I started working on this track in April after a night of karaoke with some friends. We desperately wanted to sing Bad Romance, but the karaoke DJ didn’t have it yet. Just then, Self Esteem came on and we started singing Bad Romance on top of it. It’s kind of crazy how well they fit together.
Happy New Year! I have some exciting goodies for you in the coming weeks, but today I’m posting two of my Madonna mixes, previously unavailable on this site.
The first, “What It Feels Like for a Girl” was featured on my June 2009 Robotic Electronic DJ mix. Some of you requested it be made available individually, so here it is.
The second, “Hollywood Wondergroove” is a mashup of Madonna & Missy Elliott’s “Into the Hollywood Groove,” from their 2003 Gap campaign, over Maroon 5’s “Makes Me Wonder.” In August 2007, this mashup appeared on the Club Bootie Top 10 list.
You know you secretly love this Cher song. She deserves credit for popularizing the over processed Auto-Tune sound in 1998, long before T-Pain, Lil’ Wayne, Kanye West and others jumped on the bandwagon.
Here is “Believe” layered with Deadmau5’s similarly electrified track “Moar Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff.” The result: “Believe In Ghosts.”
** As heard on San Francisco’s Energy 92.7. **

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.
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.
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.
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’!
