Six Song Mash-ups Richie T |

Six Song Mash-ups

Have you ever wondered what one band’s song would sound like with one another artist’s music and/or lyrics mixed in? Well that is called a “mashup.” It is always interesting to hear your favorite song mixed to the music of someone else. Just like a cover song, sometimes they suck, sometimes they rock, and sometimes they’re just… “meh.” Here are six mashups that have been handpicked for your listening pleasure:

“Car Radio” by Twenty One Pilots/”Heartbeat” by Childish Gambino

This features the music of “Car Radio” with the rap melodies of Childish Gambino combined with a verse from Twenty One Pilots. You can listen to more Twenty One Pilots/Childish Gambino mashups here. They all go really well together.

“Speed Of Sound” by Coldplay/ “This Twilight” by Nine Inch Nails

We hear the sounds of Coldplay mixed with the vocals of Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. If you have ever listened to the original version of “This Twilight” the instrumentals are a lot darker, giving the track a more sinister feel. Coldplay’s instrumentals provide a more upbeat version to the Nine Inch Nails song.

“Islands” by Young The Giant/“Intro” by The XX

If The XX were to put vocals to “The Intro” I’d imagine that it would sound a lot like this. Sameer Ghadia’s falsetto vocals work perfectly with the beats provided by The XX.

“Do I Wanna Know?” By Arctic Monkeys/“Waiting For The Rapture” by Oasis

It wouldn’t take a lot of effort to mash these songs together, considering they both have the same beat and tempo. Oasis’ vocals work well with the tune of “Do I Wanna Know?” as well as being mixed in with the vocals of Alex Turner.

“Little Secrets” by Passion Pit/“What You Know About That” by T.I.

This mashup changes a rap song into an extremely catchy dance song. T.I.’s rap has been mixed with the sounds of Passion Pit along with the chorus of “Little Secrets.”

“Animal” by Neon Trees/ “Still Into You” by Paramore

These two go together a little too well. It’s almost as though Neon Trees re-wrote “Animal” to the tune of “Still Into You.” Haley Williams does sing the chorus once, towards the end. Other than that, this features the vocals of Tylar Glenn with the instrumentals of Paramore. But it’s not too far off from something that Neon Trees could have written.

Do You have a favorite mashup that hasn't been included here? Let us know! We would love to hear it!

We Sure Will Miss Our Old Studio Richie T |

We Sure Will Miss Our Old Studio

Yes, the rumors are true: we are moving! Moving is always a time filled with nostalgia, reminiscing "good times", and reverence. Just kidding, moving BLOWS! We couldn't be more excited to get out of this dump. here are a few things that we will *ahem* "miss" about our current studio:

The "amazing" wiring throughout this building:

        

 

We will definitely miss all of these loose wires hanging out of the walls everywhere. Nothing says home like safety hazards!

All the random dead plants:

        

Are these suppose to be some kind of ironic motivational posters? Plants are suppose to add atmosphere, life, and creativity to your environment. The only thing these bring to our workplace is death; reminding us all that we are gonna die, so might as well quit our jobs now and rot away.

Our broken appliances:

        

Listen, the only things that a flat screen TV is good for are netflix marathons and Call of Duty tournaments. Neither of these happen on that TV, so it's useless. No one knows how to use that copy machine (no one is sure if it actually works, to be honest) and what good is a printer that DOESN't ACCEPT PRINTER PAPER!

Our "Motivational" posters:

        

We really don't know how these got here... but we can't wait to have them GONE. FOREVER. Even if calling Justin Beiber a Lesbian is kinda funny, we'd still not prefer to see his face around here.

All this random s***:

        

 

We are done with all these rusty sinks, randoms rooms full of other station's crap, and empty pizza boxes lying around that give me nothing but FALSE HOPE!!!! Some days, it's almost like we need the guys from hoarders to come help us out because some people can't organize their crap! AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DIS!! On a side note, I could really go for some pizza right about now.

...And whatever this is:

I see this everyday... and everyday I wish I could unsee it.

We will start moving next week. Our new address will be 50 West 300 S in Salt Lake City

The Grammys give Trent Reznor an apology jon | Mid Day

The Grammys give Trent Reznor an apology

 Ok before I get to the story, I have to point out that i'm not allowed to use pictures on  my blog because of stupid copyright laws.  So I made my own.  That's right, in addition to being a DJ, I'm a world class artist with MS Paint.

Alright so even though the final performance of the Grammys gets cut off EVERY YEAR..  Grammy Executive Producer Keith Ehrlich gave a big fat "I'm sorry" to Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor.  Trent had a saggy diaper that leaked overthe way this year's broadcast ended. Trent sent out a profanity-laced tweet letting everyone know he felt disrespected after his closing performance with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham was cut short at the end of Sunday's ceremony. Now Ehrlich -- who says he was thrilled to finally get Reznor to perform at the Grammys -- is telling "The Hollywood Reporter" his side of the story. He says they let the rockers know they'd keep the performance on air as long as possible, and he thinks they got pretty close before the credits started rolling.  You'd think Dave Grohl would have warned him. he's been int he final super group performance for the last three years.    Ehrlich says the all-star jam lasted about five or six minutes, and they got within about a minute-and-a-half of the end.

Stone Linkin Pilots? jon | Mid Day

Stone Linkin Pilots?

Usually when a band gets a new lead singer it's bad news.  Just ask Alice In Chains how they've enjoyed the last ten years.  But in THIS case, I think it's an improvement.  Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has been hanging out with a de-heroined STP for the last few months, and now it looks like we're getting an album!  Or at least an EP.

The band says their first EP with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington will be called "High Rise," and is scheduled to hit stores on October 8th. The collection will feature five new tracks, including their previously released single "Out of Time" and another new song called "Tomorrow." But before fans get their hands on "High Rise," they can catch the Stone Temple Pilots on the road. The band kicks off a U.S. tour September 4th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. 

 

10 bucks says it's at a fair.

 

XOXOXOX
