feb five.

maaan…i haven’t done one of these in a sec! i’ll start gettin’ back onnit. anyway, here are five mashups and remixes you can find on SoundCloud that i think are thoughtful and/or well-done and have been fixtures in my sets at both AFRO FUNKE’ and ECLECTICA this month. they’re all recognizable tunes that work great as sticking points within a context of deeper tunes or as great segue tools when genre-hopping. mad props to the artists and folks who reworked the originals!

1) “Work It Out [dj vintage rerub mashup]” – Beyonce vs. Tenor Saw
