Norway’s answer to The Lonely Island or The Conchords Ylvis are viral darlings at the moment, and I love their tracks, very funny…so you’ll hear ‘The Fox’, ‘Stonehenge’ and ‘Someone Like You (Dubstep)’ on rotation on Radio Clash Live 😉 But watch the videos first, they are really funny pisstakes of EDM like LMFAO, dubstep and inane ballads. And you might learn something!
DROOOOOOOOOOOP! That’s the sound of the Beastles arriving, well probably with that THX style chord from The End mixed in…dj BC has released ‘Ill Submarine’ and mighty fine it is too. Downloady here, and also on Soundcloud (and also proud for Radio Clash to help mirror it – I like thumbing my nose at those Blue Meanies EMI because they C&D’d me back in the day…nyah nyah *raspberry*!)
These are my favourites:
OK a good sign of a mashup if it makes me smile. ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret?’ (which was already a silly song, sorry Beatles fans, it is – dunno why Lennon had a go at Macca’s ‘Granny Music’ when he penned that), pervy ST:NG and Red Dwarf samples and Intergalactic? *g*
Good intro to the album, ‘Here Comes The Sun’ always a ready made intro, with ‘No Sleep…’ certainly as I was scheduling the early morn on Radio Clash Live this was the most appropriate intro at 6am on Beastles Day. I’m guessing people might make it their alarm clock music….
Flying is strangely one of my favourite Beatles tracks, and it was written by Ringo! Early Moog-age too. Love this Macca sampling track, which chilled and eclectic wouldn’t be out of place on Paul’s Boutique…
Great tribute to MCA that ends the album, Don’t Let Me Down with some very laid back rapping…elsewhere on the album MCA says ‘I’m back from the dead!’ which even as a non-Beasties fan (it’s why I could ‘t tell you all of the Beasties tracks here), well it pulled me up sharp.
Excited that dj BC has dropped a new Beastles track, there’s a new Beastles album on the way…and we’re hoping to bring you an exclusive on that 😉
In between the mixes we rotate mashups, songs we love and various covers and originals.
New this week are:
- Pom Deter – Call Me A Hole – featured in the inaugural RCL broadcast, it’s since gone over 1 million listens and is viral as fuck. And Pom is lovely and was already interested in doing stuff for RCL which he might do in between the helicopters and the whores and the cocaine…but we knew him well before the fame, his mashups have been featured on Radio Clash for years 😉
- Midnight Beasts – Fuck the Harlem Shake – well it is SO tired, and went down a storm on the 1st live broadcast, so it’s a cert. It’s also a good song too…catchy!
- Digital Debris – added the old shows from Tim’s Radio Clash – more experimental, but we’re all about that mashup of radio styles and music. There are rumours of new dd coming soon, if it arrives it’ll be part of the Radio Clash slot (9:30pm GMT weekdays, 8:30am Sundays)
- Skee-lo and Clyde – DJ Y Alias JY – not new but new to us, played on the 1st broadcast also, it’s from the excellent Bootlegs.Fr Je Deteste Serge Gainsbourg mashup album.
We also have new mixes from Joel Crookes (Notre Jam – 11:30pm GMT weekdays/2am Sundays) and Solcofn (A Little Bit of Sol, 2am GMT/10am & 11pm Sat) who has done a special Radio Clash Live 2 and a half hour mix and Ian Fondue has reopened the Lloydbrary (4:445am/8:15pm GMT Weekdays) for number 14, 15 soon to follow.
Just two mashup things we’re digging and went down a storm on the RCL first broadcast – first Fuck Harlem Shake:
and PomDeter’s excellent mashup WRONGNESS of Carly Rae Jepsen & Nine Inch Nails – works so well, and appearing everywhere – Boing Boing, Bootie, Stereogum…! It’s a hit!
