Best Mashups of 2010

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , , .

This is Culture Bully’s sixth annual list of the year’s top mashups, and this time around I thought it’d be nice to switch things up a bit. Instead of simply compiling a list of my own personal picks, I invited a slew of mashup producers to vote for their favorites from 2010. Quickly, here’s how voting worked: I asked everyone to send in a list of their favorite two or three mashups from the past year (I deleted picks which selected mashups that were released in past years). If they sent in more than three I still listed them below on their individual ballots, but only three picks counted toward the final totals. Whether the track received a first or third place vote, it only counted for one point toward the final total. I also tallied total votes for individual producers; again, only counting individuals’ first three votes. Lastly, no one was allowed to vote for themselves.

Over 50 bastard pop producers sent in their picks, and by a wide margin the highest rated mashup of the year was Fissunix’ “Whole Sex Lotta Machine,” which combines Zeppelin and a little J.B. with Run-DMC & Aerosmith’s classic rap/rock collaboration. Below you’ll find download links for each individual track that made the final list. Please search around among the links: I promise you’ll find something fantastic that you’ve never heard before!

List by Fissunix

The Reborn Identity “American Days Are Over”
Wonderful! Very well executed and tugs at the heart strings. Breathes new life into both tracks, despite having heard them both hundreds of times. Fantastic.

The Kleptones Downtime
The whole album. It’s great, it’s too hard to pick a favourite, I love “Untired and Correspondence” in particular, but the journey they make up is terrific. Pretty much everything on it is unique and extremely soulful as well as being very well produced. Music to stare out of windows on trains to.

Fleetwood Mac “Everywhere (Psychemagik re-edit)”
Another track I have to mention despite not being a mashup as such is Psychemagik’s re-edit of Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere. Quite how they’re managed to take just one track and make it more emotional, dreamy and sublime yet at the same time turning it into a dancefloor groover is beyond me entirely. Awesome.
