  1. so how are you building these?

    i just got a macbook and this looks like a good exercise that would make learning how to use it more fun.

    thanks. rick.

  2. I was looking for this: “In technology, a mashup is a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool; an example is the use of cartographic data from Google Maps to add location information to real-estate data from Craigslist, thereby creating a new and distinct web service that was not originally provided by either source.”-from Wikipedia

  3. Howie, same idea but in music: “a musical genre of songs that consist entirely of parts of other songs.” There’s a full Wikipedia article.

    Rick, I used GarageBand.

    Scott, I wouldn’t presume to say these are as good as DJ Earworm, or anyone else for that matter. I think they’re pretty different from Earworm, who obviously puts a lot more popcraft into his stuff. These are simpler. But you can judge for yourself.

  4. thanks bart. i’ve been screwing around with garage band a little bit but had no idea it could be used to this extent.

    if you ever get a chance check out “brain freeze” and “product placement” by two djs named cut chemist and dj shadow.

    it uses a lot of obscure louisiana funk , r&b , and even some zydeco.

    it’s a fun way to hear a new take on old music .

  5. Are there suggested programs/sources to separate the vocal tracks from the music tracks on a regular mp3? I think I’ll be doing some research, and trying to make some music today, love your songs B-man.

  6. Scottica, I don’t know any way to do what you want aside from heavy EQing — which is something I haven’t messed with for these tracks. I just combined instrumentals with acapellas.
