Mash-Up Monday #3: Usher vs. Keyboard Cat – Play Him Off, In This Club (Video) & ABX – Billie “Wildcat” Jean (.mp3)

The Hood Internet (ABX & DJ STV SLV), Chicago, Illinois based DJs, producers and masher-uppers have been making really cool mash-ups for the last 3 years (at the least.) Their website is located on the internet at http://thehoodinternet.com.The song in the video is a mash of Usher‘s “Love In This Club” over the music of recent YouTube phenom, the late housecat and musician, Fatso (also known as “Keyboard Cat“.)

Below is another feline mash-up by ABX of The Hood, that combined Ratatat‘s ill instrumentals and geeetar riffs from their song “Wildcat” with the timeless vocals from the Michael Jackson classic, “Billie Jean” to form “Billy ‘Wildcat’ Jean“– kind of a post-humous a.k.a. naming for Mrs. Jean.

Also, I have more independent artistry and .mp3’s coming… I’ve been busy the last few days to appropriately research/compose meaningful write-ups for the artists and their musics. I haven’t forgot.

Throwback Thursday #2: Herb Alpert – Rise (1979)

Herb Alpert is the man. He started A&M Records with Jerry Moss in 1962 (naming it that after they had found out Carnival Records was taken by another company.) A&M stands for “Alpert & Moss.” The A&M logo also pays homage to Alpert’s instrument of choice, the trumpet.

The label houses/housed musical acts such as Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass, George Benson, The Brothers Johnson, Al Green, The Human League, Toby Keith, The Carpenters, Quincy Jones, Joe Cocker, Cheech & Chong, Snow Patrol, Maroon 5, Bill Withers, The Black Eyed Peas, Shanice, Nazareth, Pussycat Dolls, Iggy Pop, Payolas, Queen (to A&M Canada), Sound Garden, Styx, Sex Pistols (only for a week though, right after EMI dropped them), Ike & Tina Turner, Atlantic Starr, MxPx, Mya, The Police, Sun Ra and Janet Jackson. You know, just to drop a few names.

Herb’s and his band, The Tijuana Brass did the title music for the original Casino Royal and Alpert is also the only artist ever to have placed five albums on the Billboard Pop Album Chart at the one time.

According to his Wikipedia article, “(His) musical accomplishments include five number one hits, twenty-eight albums on the Billboard charts, eight Grammy Awards,  fourteen Platinum albums and fifteen Gold albums (and) as of 1996, (he) had sold 72 million albums worldwide.”

The song featured in the video above, Rise was from his 1979 album of the same name won a Grammy and was sampled in the Notorious B.I.G.’s 1997 song “Hypnotize.”

Read the Wikipedia article about Herb or visit his website, http://herbalplert.com appropriately titled [ Music. Art. Life. ] to  learn more about Herb, his contributions to music over the past 4 decades and what he’s been up to now-a-days. Alpert is truly a living legend.

Mash-Up Monday #2: Lil’ Jon and the East Side Boyz – Throw It Up (Lankizzle Remix) (Feat. Young Buck & Pastor Troy) (.mp3)

throw_it_up

I’ve had this song lingering in my iTunes for years. I have no clue where I found it except that it was labeled as “Lankizzle Remix” and a Google search for Lankizzle comes up with a few, songs, from a mixtape titled Lankizzle Presents Video Game Remixes V2 that contained rap acapellas over beats that contained samples from classic video games. The song featued in this Mash-Up Monday is a combination of the vocals from Lil’ John and The East Side Boyz’Throw It Up” (Feat. Young Buck & Pastor Troy) mixed with a beefed-up version of the Koji Kondo composed Sanctuary area music from The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past on the Super Nintendo. I hope to stumble across both of Lankizzle’s VG Remixes mixtapes one day.

Throwback Thursday #1: The Pharcyde – Drop (1995)

Spike Jonze directed this video waaaay back in the mid 90’s. I was 7 or 8 when it came out but I still remember it from being played on MTV and The Box and recently (a few years ago), The Work of Director Spike Jonze DVD from Palm Pictures.

I also know of Mr. Jonze from his directing, filming and editing of the legendary skateboarding video masterpiece “Video Days” that came out in 1991 from Blind Skateboards feating the likes of Mark Gonzalez, Guy Mariano, Jason Lee and others. I first saw it as a 174px QuickTime video that circulated online during the early 2000’s and it was still damn good even when pixelated as fuck. He also is the co-founder of Girl Skateboards and does direction for their skateboard videos and also is an established Hollywood producer, actor and director with such movies as Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Synecdoche, New York, and the upcoming Where the Wild Things Are due out in October.

Okay, this post wasn’t really about the video, but the video is still a classic and the behind the scenes/commentary on the Spike Jonze DVD is definitely worth the purchase.
