Mashups of the Week: Spice Girls & "Fleetwood Mashed"
Regardless of whether or not you're a fan of mashups, or just want something fresh for your jam-box, this taste-test from the new Fleetwood Mac Mashed album should sit well with you. The first track from the mix debuted this week (as did the entire album) at A plus D's monthly Bootie Top 10 mix; here's what they had to say,
"We've been waiting forever for Radio Clash's Fleetwood Mash album to come out, and this "Bootie Exclusive" from Bootie Boston's DJ BC has helped fast-track its release ... finally! We've been spinning this in our early sets for months now, and are so glad to not have to keep it to ourselves anymore -- we can now happily share this awesome track with you!"
Since its release in 1995, there are few songs that have been warped, twisted and manipulated more than "Wonderwall." Adding Beyonce's unusually delicate "Halo" is Dan Mei of the Mashup Industries collective; the final result is a remarkably soulful reinterpretation of the played-out Brit pop classic.
