I’ve got a lot of love for my recent mashups on Mixcloud, but the daddies of the craft inspired me to do this mix.

New York AV8 records have been making cut & paste party tracks for over 20 years & they’ve been as much a part of Stump Juice as Booby Bird & The Brand New Heavies.

It’s a tribute to their craft & the shops I bought the stuff from.

Can You Guess?

Another upload Another mix.

The second of my mashups done using very basic equipment. This is essentially the ‘first pass’. The final version I remember got props when I first pulled it off, and I’ll probably put it up. Hoever, I think this is just as good.

Say STET!!

Just put up a mix today from the archive (again)

Back when I was a young buck & studio technology was beyond the reach of us lesser mortals, I played around with the idea of remixing (now they’d be called ‘mashups’ of) several records.

The basic track or half the edits laid down in one take, recorded to a tape machine & then bounced onto a second machine, where the overdubs were then done in a second take. This is one of several I did back then.

Nowadays with the power & affordability of computers & music/audio software, this sort of thing can be done quickly, easily & painlessly.

That said, I think the limitations presented by the set up I had when putting this together helped me make think creatively & hone my skills.

I like it anyway…………………….
