Missy Elliot vs Martin Brew – Work It (DJ Soo’s Hopscotch Blend)

Are you ever in the mood to hear a song you used to listen to in high school? Sometimes I’ll put on a “Y2K” or “Millenium Hits” playlist and jam out to songs that were prevalent during my adolescence. The familiarity is nice; this nostalgia feels good every so often. Missy Elliot’s “Work It” is one of those songs […]

Oliver vs. Ellie Goulding – Control the Lights (Chris Carter Edit)

There is a sound to summer, and it is sweet. It’s the sound of a jolly homeless man singing “Let It Be” in the streets, the ripple of conversations heard outdoors as you wonder how everyone is able to brunch everyday of the week. It’s outdoor seating for restaurants, and skater dudes with cool tricks. […]

RRod – With The Suit & Tie On (Marvin Gaye vs. Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z)

Here’s the thing. Both Marvin Gaye and Justin Timberlake are two of my favorite musicians in the whole world. I stand by that statement for. Ever. JT’s debut album was one of the first CDs I owned. It wasn’t the first one, okay? Shakira holds that spot, but only because I found that CD first. I’m an honest and loyal supporter of Mr. […]

The Hood Internet – Pyramidspeak (Purity Ring x Frank Ocean)

The first time I listened to Channel Orange, I knew that Frank Ocean was three levels ahead of his contemporaries. The whole work blew me away. It was enthralling. Each track deserves its own recognition and praise, but “Pyramids” is what “Back to Black” was for Amy Winehouse. Pure, raw artistry. It’s a true gem […]

Black Van – Inside (Oliver Remix) vs Goldroom – Fifteen (ft. Chela) (Silenx mashup)

Greetings from the beautiful state of California! Los Angeles has been my place of destination for the past week and I have to say, having lived on the east coast my entire life, this place is magical and filled with sunshining possibilities. The soundtrack for this trip has been eclectic to say the least, but […]

Marvin Gaye vs. Pryda – Too Busy Thinking About Leja

Think less, do more. I tend to over think things. Whether it’s where to go to eat or what song to listen to while I’m working out, I’m constantly plagued by indecisiveness and procrastination. Maybe it’s the English major in me, but I tend to analyze every aspect of my life, from where my life […]

Beyonce vs. Beastie Boys – Girls on Girls (Captain Cuts Remix)

Take an unstoppable force like Beyonce already mixed with something as dancey as Major Lazer, and then throw some Beastie Boys in there. Two songs that already have a knack for getting stuck in your head, placed together to give you the beauty that is a modern day mash up with all the right ingredients. […]

The Twelfth Hour

Will someone please explain to me the phenomenon that is time while at work? Doesn’t it feel like right before you get to work time is flying and you can’t move fast enough but the second you sit down it’s like you go into some alternate world and it takes an hour for 5 minutes […]

Chromeo – Call Me Up (Bag Raiders Remix)

Every time I listen to Chromeo I’m reminded of those old school smooth soul R&B/Funk bands. You know, like the Barry Whites, Fatback Band, Major Harris, the Persuaders. All the guys whose sole purpose as artist was to sing about the many complexities, dimensions and details of macking it to girls on a daily basis. […]

Dead Prez vs. Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks Of Hip Hop

I’m not usually into mash-ups but my friend Will sent me this a few weeks ago and I thought it was great. Dead Prez is an underground hip-hop group known for their socially conscious and politically charged lyrics. Though never achieving much commercial success they’ve garnered incredible respect and street credibility from both fans and fellow […]
