Mashup Music - Part 1

A direct result of the internet age and home computers is the emergence of do-it-yourself music. One such type that has created a huge underground buzz is "mashup" or "bootleg" music. That's where you take a vocal track of one song and literally "mash it" with the instrumental track of another. The end result is a mixed up, bastard pop gem. A great one is David Bowie's "Fame" mashed with Britney Spear's "Slave." Who woulda thunk?

Take a look inside the "mashup" scene with help from DJs Adrian, Mysterious D, and Mr. Fab. This is part 1 of a 2 part series.

    Thanks to Adrian, Mysterious D and Mr. Fab for participating and for inviting me to the Bootie LA Event. It was great.

    I have a fondness for mashup. It's fun to see what happens. they have a show on indie 103 friday evenings called smashbox where that's all they do for an hour.
