I Love The Outlaws!

Too Many Fools Following Too Many Rules is a great mixtape created by Bristol DJs The Outlaws. It's a bit like this popular little number but with great combinations of dance music, pop tunes and a bunch of old classics. It's recieved some good reviews and there is an option on the site to donate some money to the DEC Tsunami appeal if you like it. This rather beautiful and mental interview sheds a little more light on them. They seem, quite appropriately, to be fans of these guys too.

Fabulous interview!

In a similar vein, but with far more interesting music: How To Kill The DJ (Part 2) by the Optimo DJs.

Slight disclaimer: I was for many years a regular at Optimo

The party never stops when you're listening to mashups.

I listened to this mix while biking into the office. It was great and I made it here in 26:15 -- a personal record.

So far it sounds a lot better than just mashups -- they play more like very good remixes. The guy rhyming on the first track was pretty mindblowing and the When Doves Cry treatment was a-ok.

Trust me, these are mashups.

I think the bittorrent tracker on the website is down... something feels wrong about downloading an 80mb mix direct.

Young MC has never sounded so good.

What I said was that they sounded better than *just* mashups. I know what a mashup is. The production quality is too high in my estimation for there not to be beats and tones added in that are not from the source material. Just one opinion. My point was that they sound very very good.

Oh spooky! I was just listening to this the other night.

Also worth a checkout: Strictly Kev's Raiding the 20th Century -- a history of the cutup/mashup from John Cage and W.S. Burroughs all the way to Soulwax and Go Home Productions (torrent here) and the new Kleptones joint, From Detroit to J.A.
