Electroswamp - Talking Heads vs Goldfrapp

When I was listening to Ooh La La by Goldfrapp I thought that the chorus could probably match very well with the chorus in the Talking Heads song Swamp.
What I did not expect was that the two songs would match entirely so well.

In my opinion Swamp is one of the weaker Talking Heads' songs, but in this combo I like it a lot.


Talking Heads - Swamp (from Stop Making Sense)
Goldfrapp - Ooh La La (extended remix and Phones re-edit)

Summer Booties 2008

Last year BBI released the album Summer Booty, a 3 CD monster collection of tunes around a summer theme. This was the first album I was featured on, the album was a huge succes, even though (or maybe because) not all tracks were flawless. I think it worked as a kind of jumpstart for a lot of mashup-artists who were just starting or not very well known and were featured along arrived bootleggers.
This year there will be two Summer Booty albums, due to some differences of opinion between the facilitators of the first edition. The first one has just arrived, DJ Useo presents Summer Booty 2008 and features one track of mine:

Lebanese Thieves Don't Lie
Shakira - Hips Don't Lie (vocals)
Thievery Corporation - Lebanese Blonde (instrumental)

It's on my myspace player but not yet available for download. You can download it by going to the summerbooty site

Soon Sound UnSound Network (The successor of BBI) will present their Summer Booty compilation as well on which I also will be featured.

So even though this little quarrel might have stirred some rivalry the bootleg afficonados ultimately profit by having more to listen to.
For the record, both sides have laid down their quarrel and are in support of each others product.

Mistah Pok's video to Psycho Robots

A while ago after I had made the mashup with Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads and Robots by Kraftwerk, Mistah Pok made a video to this, which you can see here. I recommend to take a look at his My Space profile, he has lots of excellent videos.

What Goes Around In A Hurt World (Madonna vs Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake)

I made this quite some time ago, but never came to finish it completely, when other projects took over. I am not entirely sure about this one, it seems alright to me but also very regular as if it misses something. Maybe I have heard it too much already. So I did finish it and you can make up your mind about this one.

What Goes Around In A Hurt World
Madonna - Drowned World/Substitute For Love (instrumental)
Justin Timberlake - What Goes Around (acapella)
Christina Aguilera - Hurt (acapella)
