mashing up history
check the slogan on the label of this version of the original Jem 77 tune -
"Proper Bloodclaart Pirate Radio Bizness"
this other recent Rave 2 the Grave tune is better than the Jem 77/Cubic 22 one I think
of course there were tracks that were effectively mash-ups - aka rip-offs - happening in real-time back in the old skool days. i can't think of any examples off the top, but there were quite a few that were composites of existing killer tunes.
This Mickeybeam75 chappie is slinging this kind of thing up there, along with a lot of high-quality uploads of original-era tunes
this one - not a mash up but a new-old tune - is quite devastating, beats and bass-wise. really like it
Here's the whole Wetman EP on Vivid
