Diving back into the virtual crates for the elusive sound of the party in your head.

okiokinl – Satisfy Me (Fischerspooner vs. Elvis Presley).mp3

Netherlands DJ okiokinl hitches Elvis Presely’s swaggering A Little Less Conversation to Fischerspooner’s lurching electronic breakout hit, Emerge, with spectacular results. Be sure and check out his Official.fm page (linked below) for no fewer than 166 tracks (at last count), including an incredible (or incredulous, if you prefer) set of tracks marrying Joy Divison’s post-punk melodies with today’s pop tarts (Katy Perry, Destiny’s Child, Fergie, etc.)

smash – R U Gonna Be My T.V.mp3

Smash, an on-again, off-again mashup pioneer (mostly off — the last post on his site before dropping this track was from August 2010), found this kicking around his hard drive and released it, saving us all the trouble of mixing Jet’s iPod-whoring track RU Gonna Be My Girl with Tim Curry’s inimitable camp icon, Dr. Frankenfurter. Which is good, because we’d have just fucked it all up anyway.

More smash mashups.

The Kleptones – Welcome Back.mp3

The Kleptones have cranked out enough truly classic mashups in just the past two years that I could easily just rename this series “Kleptones of the Week” and still have enough material to run out the end of the year. It must be the unrepentant techno-head deep inside me that loves hearing Axl Rose’s twist his snarling whine around the acidic tones of early underground club classics like Joey Beltram’s Energy Flash and LFO by (oddly enough) LFO.

Full sample list:

  • Boney M. – Rivers of Babylon
  • Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Karn Evil 9
  • Guns ‘n Roses – Welcome to the Jungle
  • The Chemical Brothers – Hey Boy Hey Girl
  • Basement Jaxx – Where’s Your Head At?
  • Missy Elliott – Lose Control (which samples Cybotron – Clear)
  • LFO – LFO
  • Meat Beat Manifesto – Radio Babylon (which samples Boney M – Rivers of Babylon)
  • Joey Beltram – Energy Flash
  • The Future Sound of London – We Have Explosive



  1. Sitting here, mouth agape…s-p-e-e-c-h-l-e-s-s…OMG, this is SO GOOD!!!!

    Best Mother’s Day present ever!! EVER!! And a Happy Mother’s Day to Mrs. Tamer!!

    P.S. I’m going through a little domestic crisis…what a delightful diversionary distraction this has been. As always, thank you. You are the music maestro.

    • Well, Happy Mother’s Day to you, elizabeth! It was sweet of me to inadvertently get you a gift. With a little more forethought, I could have themed this to go with the holiday (although I can’t imagine which tracks I’ve got that would actually convey a “Mother’s Day” feel..).

      Good luck with your move. God help me, I’m hoping I don’t have to go through that experience anytime soon. Try to leave the crises behind as you head to your new place. You can always get new crises. No need to drag along the old ones.

  2. I’d never heard of Fischerspooner; I had heard of Elvis of course, but never the song, “A Little Less Conversation”. Sounds great though–probably better than Presley’s original!

    • It might sound a little better. The King had an almost-looplike drum sound on the original, which is pretty interesting. If I’m not mistaken, the original appears on the soundtrack of Soderberg’s “Ocean’s 11,” in case you’re trying to hunt it down.

      Thanks for the visit and comment, Scott.

  3. […] The impossibly tight leather trousers. Smash (who we last heard pinning the over-the-top vocals of Tim Curry to Jet’s inescapable iPod-pushing hit) finally lets him have his way, sort of. She Sells Sanctuary, the pinnacle of the Cult’s […]
