Soo, my friend recently attended a password training at work, led by a coworker and friend of his. As he listened to the examples, he got this idea to mash up his coworker's announcer voice with the old banjo tune King Kong Kitchie Kitchie (a version of froggy went a courtin') to make a 1 minute dance mix ditty.

For song #8 of Unu Kanto Po Semajno, we answer the question, "What happens when not_on_display figures out he can just drag .mp3's into Garageband and manipulate them?" Some funky goddamn psychedelic shit, you'd better believe. [more inside]
Made this in about 20 minutes. With Casio MT-70 drums, recording of "I Miss The Old Kanye" from the unreleased "The Life of Pablo", and samples of "No Good" from Oneohtrix Point Never's Garden of Delete.
Dream dripping floating melting flying… All of these are feelings that might come to mind if you close your eyes while listening to this current track. Somewhere between the mellowest of Pink Floyd and the catchiest bit of Billy Bragg, I hope you'll enjoy Ummagma 'Colors'. [more inside]
Dream pop meets hip hop full on, and the mesh essentially delivers what feels like a natural sound, as if that is how it was intended to be all along. This track is somewhat on the dark side, accentuated by both the underlying music and vocals, hear's an earbite for you, care of Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma & Canadian rapper Drake. [more inside]
A dizzy concoction, born out of doing something else. I saw this and thought that's pretty cool. So I made this. Made in Adobe Premiere. [more inside]

Ostensibly a mashup or remix of "Rhythm is a Dancer" by Snap! and "Mr. Vain" by Culture Beat, this is really something distinct altogether: sure, it rips off pretty much every hook in each of the two songs, but I did the instrumentation entirely from scratch and the central chorus in this song isn't directly taken from either source song.

For Aphex heads: a trancy edit/mash-up of Xtal with z-twig and the Quoth beat for some reason, done 12 years ago with Goldwave and Rebirth.
For Valentine's Day, 2012, a ragtime arrangement of two unlikely bedfellows: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and the 1817 JC Lowry tune Pisgah (58 in The Sacred Harp). [more inside]

Kind of a Mash-up. Inspired by a lame joke a friend made. [more inside]
One of the tracks off the bizarre algorithmically-reconstituted album I
recorded constructed today called The Seattleward Spiral. Because the world needs more industrial pop reconstituted from Frasier audio clips. [more inside]
Samples. It all started with "Now's the fucking time!" from Kill Bill. Then Prince joined in, and then it got out of hand. Elvis has the last word.

On the heels of onehalfjunco's Lithium Spanish Flea, Jay-Z's "Money Ain't a Thang" sung to the tune of Boots Randolph's "Yackety Sax"
A mashup of Nirvana's "Lithium", and Herb Alpert's "Spanish Flea." [more inside]
Two and a half years after this, here's another mashup made for fun: "Single Ladies" vs "I want candy." [more inside]
A mashup of ELO and another well-known artist. [more inside]
An oldish mashup of some dated electro ala Busy P and rhymes by the Beastie Boys. Kept current by the always timeless Donovan.

Oh, I made this just to annoy y'all.
One of four sound collages I put together in 2005-2006 under the "Jimmy O'Clock" brand name. Kinda puts a smirk on my face when I listen to it. [more inside]

"Because", "Fame" > "Because of Fame"
Mashup I made for fun, had laying around on my hard drive, and remembered while reading this thread. The tracks are "Crash" from Gwen Stefani's "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." (written by her and Tony Kanal) and "Mr. Xcitement" from They Might Be Giant's "Mink Car" (and featuring Mike Doughty on vocals.) What I like about it is that neither track is an acapella track, and that both singers (like both music tracks) are overlapping throughout, but it still works -- other than a tempo (but *not* pitch) change to speed up "Crash" and a few measure movements/cuts, no other changes were necessary. Note that release of the TMBG/Doughty track predates the Stefani track, and that I cut off the spoken word intro and painfully long musical ending of the TMBG track (which the Stefani track did not overlap) to save you all download time.
by Fantastic Plastic Mims; my first foray into the mashing of up. Please be kind, this took me well over ten minutes.
A Toni Basil/Inspectah Deck mashup from 2003 (live mix).
Oh, will I ever regret this one. A couple of years ago in AskMeFi, I referred to a joke version of "Rapper's Delight" I once did, combined with the riff from the Cure's "Fascination Street". This is that very "rap". It is very rough -- we just did it as a joke for Halloween 1991, and we practiced it... maybe... once. (You know those goofy things you come up with in practice that crack you up but should never be played in public? Yeah.) So there are lots of screw-ups in the recording. Lots. But it was a huge hit with our friends, and so for the remainder of that band's short life, we had to play it at every gig. Unfortunately, it was only recorded the first time we played it. Recording notes: this was recorded by someone in the audience on a boombox, but it's not bad considering that. Definitely not high fidelity, though! Also, there's some talking for a minute at the beginning of the track. Despite everything, I think it's kind of fun. But painful. Definitely painful. "Enjoy." (can you believe we were totally sober when we did this?)
This disco-fied zombie-dodging mash-up adventure takes Feist's "Inside Out" and lets it hang out with Sufjan Stevens' "They Are Night Zombies!!". Turns out, these two tracks were born to be together.
I always thought that Tom Waits should do a duet with Sarah Slean. So here's a mash-up for being sad to: Tom Waits "I'm Still Here" with Sarah Slean's "Your Wish is My Wish."
This track is part 2 of a 23 minute mega mash up with a steady beat and some obscure samples. When I played this set live, I was happy to see people breakin' to it. Cool! http://www.albertoforero.com
