John's been talking a lot about harmonic blending lately and it reminded me of my favorite mash up DJ. IMHO, nobody blends better than this guy! Originally from Israel, he now reigns from New York City and has a blast digitally deconstructing and reconstructing music (he's been doing it since 2006).
I hadn't been to his website for quite awhile and felt like a kid in a candy shop with all the new tracks available since my last visit.
Choosing a brand new mash up of Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen and Michael Jackson (appropriately titled 'We Found A Good Beat'), I was anxious to use it in my class. They loved it! Coming in at 4:06 and 71 bpm, it makes a great out of the saddle climb. My class really enjoyed the surprise of the next song to be mashed into the background of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'.
It would be easy to do an entire class of all DJ Lobsterdust mash ups. Here is his website, so you can check everything out for yourself. Let me know if you end up doing an entire Lobsterdust profile! 🙂
And here's your free download for the 'We Found A Good Beat' track:
