Unfortunately, the yousendit link is only going to last a short time so anyone looking to download will have to go elsewhere (themixingbowl.com has it)

This is the Annie Mac show from BBC Radio1 broadcast on January 26, 2006.

That's how the link was sent to me, i'll find the link to the mixing bowl version of it.

Cool feat. A bit too ADD for me to appreciate it as anything other than an excercise, though.

Oh, and:

"Ohw. Moy. Godt." ;)

Brought a smile to my face.

Yeah, I liked this in spite of myself. And the yousendit link is still working fine.

Has anyone tried to ID all the songs?
posted by smackfu at 7:32 AM on January 30, 2006


This made for a fun listen. I remember trying to put together something like this as a teenager, armed with only a stack of CDs and a portable radio with a pause button. I didn't get very far.

There's a full tracklisting in the Mixing Bowl link, if you don't mind signing up for an account.

Neat.

Any legal implications about doing something like this?
I want to see the lawsuit...

If he was distributing the mix, there would be legal issues. But this was done for BBC Radio 1, so it falls under the same rules that any dj playing music on the radio does.

Here's the song list, for those who don't want to create an account just to see it.

Isn't this just a beat with 150 odd vocal tracks one after another? I was expecting a bit more of the original songs to remain. Maybe I don't know enough of the the songs used to recognise them.

It's not just one beat through the whole song. But yeah, he does keep the music going from some songs for much longer than others.

About 15 years ago some friends and I decided to try to catalog every sample in The Beastie Boy's Paul's Boutique. I'm pretty sure we never even came close.

Obligatory "John Oswald did it first" links.

I bet DJ iTunes-Signature could kick his ass.
posted by jenovus at 9:44 AM on January 30, 2006


Glad theres 2 Atari Teenage Riot tunes in there if only because of Alec Empires use of the gabba bass drum.

All in all - its a bit rubbish. Perhaps a bit interesting and then boring real quick - these people need something better to do with there time.

I agree with jenovus.

It's just Aquasky, no DJ - it's (at last count) three chaps.

Ableton Live has made it far easier to do things like this nowadays. Not to detract from what they've done - it's still fun.

Oh wait.. The Killers just arrived. It's like they just shat in my coffee. Oh well.

I still prefer Freddie Fresh's far less technically accomplished and super-obscurist 500+ tune full length mixes, though.

sourwookie, perhaps you'd be interested in this work of Paul's Boutique scholarship.

Small quibble: The name of the Osymyso track is actually "Intro-Inspection". It's a much more enjoyable track as opposed to a technical challenge.

Serously, let's see it with vinyl guys...

It was interesting to listen to once. Not something I'd play at a party either, unless the crowd was hyperactive.

If you enjoy mashups, try out Party Ben's stuff. He is part of the staff at KITS 105.3 (in San Francisco); amongst the more enjoyable stuff he's done or been part of (imho) is the Subsonic show (hosted by Aaron Axelsen that is, sadly, no more.
