BREAKING NEWS: Chris Likes a Mashup….

Vincent and Dylan will have never seen this coming. I have, as they mentioned in their mashup posts, vehemently opposed mashups for years. I see mashups as being artistically uncreative, and many of them are. John Williams has made millions as the foremost purveyor of musical piracy. He is the original mashup artist. Anyways, I was not expecting a whole lot when I heard that two musicians had collaborated to mash 80’s post-hardcore stalwarts Fugazi with the original Odd Future, probably the greatest hip hop collective of all time, the Wu Tang Clan. Low and behold, I gave it a listen and damn. It’s some good stuff. The producers have done a lot to make sure that both artists aesthetics are maintained in all of the tracks while creating something new out of recycled music. I haven’t heard another mashup that does that to this effect. Give it a listen, download it for free, and enjoy it.
