Amped On: Rad Mashups

a

Hi everyone,

How about some mashups for breakfast today? As you know, the mashup has become a wildly popular musical style and I’m obsessed. A mashup is basically bringing together the best elements from different songs and creating an entirely new awesome song. Think of it as remix times a million.

If my mashup definition is confusing, here are some of my fave Mashups at the moment and you’ll see what I’m talking about:

1. The Jackson Pit by Xaphoon Jones

This is one of my absolute fave mashups featuring “I Want You Back” from the Jackson 5 and “Sleepyhead” by Passion Pit.

2. Pop Culture by Madeon

Madeon Pop Culture mashup came out a while ago (Here’s the original live mashup in case you haven’t seen it!) but this video adds a fun visual aspect to the song. There are way too many songs to name in this one but see if you can recognize any:
 

Aren’t these awesome? I love how mashups can reinvent classic songs with contemporary components – really makes you appreciate them in a whole new way.

Did you like my mashup picks? Maybe I’ll start doing some mashup mondays, who knows? Leave me some links to your favorite mashups in the comments so I can check them out and maybe feature them in the future!

Peace, Love and Sparkles,
Chelsea
