Friday Playlist: Monster Mashups

Worlds collide.

Mashups are the peanut butter and chocolate of music—two things that you wouldn’t expect to go together are combined to make something magical.

    Minna’s stuff is great as always. I’ll listen to the playlist when it isn’t 4 am in my time zone, but it looks promising!

    my favorite mashup is “communist future” with tyler the creator’s yonkers and nmh’s communist daughter-it’s absolutely hilarious hearing nostalgic horns paired with serious rap!

    great mix! since everyone seems to be sharing, my favorite mashup is smells like beach boys. it is smells like teen spirit with vocals from sloop john b, and it works terrifyingly well.

    My favourite mash up is Stardust Kids by A Plus D – It works so amazingly well!

    A Plus D have a club called Bootie where they play nothing but mash ups. A friend of mine in San Francisco went to the one there and she had a fantastic time. So for you Rookies who are above 21, look into it :)

    This is perfect. I think the peanut butter and chocolate coincided together very well this time :)

    The best mashups in my opinion is this ellie goulding x muse “undisclosed lights” and a dance Gavin dance x wiz kalifa (or how ever you spell that name) “uneasy hearts weigh the most” there both great, check em out!
