  • First of all, let’s get this out of the way: I can’t even bring myself to say the name of the song that’s been combined with an old Ike & Tina Turner number, but I bet you can guess it. (via Mashuptown.com)

  • Okay, clean your ears out with some lovely and innocent holiday-themed bootlegs: it’s another “Santastic” compilation, edited by Boston’s DJ BC and featuring the work of Go Home Productions, Freddy King of Pants, and a special “Dick In a Box” mix from A Plus D! Come to think of it, maybe this isn’t so innocent. (Santastic3)

  • Not street enough for you? Well, SoCal’s DJ Skee has put together a version of Jay-Z’s latest album American Gangster using music from another well-known gangster movie: it’s American Godfather, and while I’m a bit put off by Skee’s ego (“often cited as the definitive DJ for the West Coast”?!) Radar seems to like it. (Download at SendSpace)

  • Now here’s what mashups are really all about: actual musical craft. Lenlow’s smooth combo of Led Zeppelin, Buffalo Springfield, and a bunch more stuff feels like a whole new song, so shut up about this being a “cringe-inducing fad,” Radar. You’re cringe-inducing. Nyah! (Via Lenlow’s site)
