Like every year here’s a collection of links from sites that think I have produced something good in the previous year. Click here for the years before if you are interested.

So here is a brand new album named “80s NOW!”. The concept of this compilation is to mix vocals from the 1980s with current electronic music, mainly house, electro house and even drum & bass.

For the DJs I made a couple of extended mixes too. These only contain longer beats at the beginning and the end. They do not contain any longer vocals bits or such. Also note that extended version are only available for 9 out of the 15 album tracks. DOWNLOAD THE EXTENDED VERSIONS HERE [Zippyshare]
If you aren’t sure what to expect from the album take a look at the trailer where short bits of all 15 tracks are included.
Just 2 weeks left until Halloween! So here we go, “KNASbusters” is ready to rock the dancefloor at those special parties around that time of the year. It’s a mix between SHM’s Steve Angello and, of course, Ray Parker Jr.’s movie classic. Oh and this will also be the first release of an EP I am currently working on called “80’s now!”. The mashups on this EP (release: mid November) will contain mixes between 80’s classics and current electro house tunes.

Ok, I said I would never ever mash Justin Bieber but I really had to do this one here. Sorry ;) You may have seen the Youtube video where Billie Joe from Green Day freaked out because his band had to cut down their show. If not click HERE. I saw this video earlier today and instantly thought of mashing these Green Day scenes and Bieber.
Cro is Gemany’s newcomer of the year, already having a #1 hit with the first single from his debut album “RAOP” (which is a word combined of rap and pop). You already may have heard my take on the “Intro” of that album. Now I have been asked to contribute on an official mashup album that uses the tracks of “RAOP”, with support by Cro himself and his label Chimperator. The album features the before mentioned “Intro” plus 2 brand new Schmolli tracks, “Sie bleibt nie mehr” (Sido vs. Cro) and “Wunderbare Mädchen waren hier” (Cro vs. Peter Alexander vs. The Supremes vs. Scorpions vs. Jan Delay vs. Iggy Pop), as well as 13 further tracks by the likes of Mashup-Germany, DJ Morgoth, MashMike, DJ J alias YJ and Marc Johnce. You can stream the tracks via the Soundcloud site below and DOWNLOAD THE FULL ALBUM HERE (Zippy).
Here’s a pretty mainstream party mashup for you people! It’s based on Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” and adds current chart toppers like Zedd and Jessie J plus classics by Cutting Crew and Heavy D & The Boyz. Oh and did I mention there’s also “Gangnam Style” by Psy in it? ;) Enjoy,

This will be the last single release from “Pirate Nation Vol.3”, it is based on the R3hab remix of Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” and features vocals by R.E.M., Queen, Chelley and my mates DJs From Mars. Please note that the video version is a bit shorter than the mp3 you can grab below, the mp3 is more DJ friendly ;) Also I am having troubles with Youtube since they are blocking my stuff quite often lately. You can watch the video on Youtube but I had to camouflage the Katy Perry bits (audio & video) so if you wanna see the original video watch it on Vimeo.
Watch the original video version here on Vimeo.
