M Is FOR MASHUP - August 12th, 2009

Yo Ho Ho & A Bottle of Mashups!

By DJ Useo

You know, a lot of people have this perception, false or not, that bootlegging music by mashing or whatever is no different than just outright stealing. To investigate this belief I am going to 'pirate' all the parts of this article from other posts. See if you can tell the difference.>>>>>>>>>>

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest Sound Unsound community compilation "Summer Unsound". For this compilation, the chosen theme was "Reggaeton". Consisting of 12 tracks from members of the Sound Unsound community, Summer Unsound will bring a bit of that "Latino Feeling" to your rather damp (if your in the UK) summer.

Founded in 2006, Mashup Industries is run by Clivester, DJ Schmolli & Krazyben. Their website is looking good lately and has a schwack of good mashups on it, so make sure to go get 'em here - (§ionid=5&id=17&Itemid=36 )

They also feature other artists from around the globe such as Marc Johnce, who lays down this first monster which is a mash of Evermore's "Hey Boys And Girls (Diamond Cut Dub)" and Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Comin'.",Electro Priest.Next up is a new one from founder KrazyBen and his take on the popular source material of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams." It's definitely in key and a great mix - the bassline from M People's "Movin' On Up" fits in like a glove, and adds some much needed juice to the original, making it sound almost more like a remix than a mashup. I wouldn't mind a little less sax, but ya gotta work with the material, and I can't say it doesn't fit.Last up is another one from one of the founders, this time Clive$ter, who combines Autokratz's excellent new single "Always More" with Indeep's classic "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life." This here is the "healthy version." He made the track originally with some coughing from Scotch's "Disco Band" but I guess some people thought it unnecessary. Probably true, you don't need more than this right here.

Dj Fac 'You Got Another Bang Comin'(Brevi vs. Judas Priest) Stix Review By: DJ Not-I

Pros: Dub and British metal - in this case, a winning combination! JP flows comfortably over the Brevi loops and the dub is tough enough to support the vocals. The additional guitar bits and gunshots are a nice touch and the sound is rock solid, making this an enjoyable track.

Cons: Despite the extras, this mash doesn't really develop, let alone climax. I kept waiting for the full drums to kick in and was a little disappointed to hear the same repeated loop instead.

Tips: None. I'll just say that compared to some of your other mash-ups, this one sounds a tad routine. It's a very good mash, don't get me wrong, but in my opinion lacks the extra push (e.g. some drum samples or a few more elements from the JP track) to make it great.

Matt Hite - I dropped this one at Electro Bootie last weekend and it went over huge. I thought it deserved a proper release and so did the kind folks at Audioporn Central. In fact, it's featured today on the APC as an Illegal Sunday World Premiere!

FM ("Girls on the Dance Floor") vs. Tone Loc + Peaches ("Wild Thing") vs. Prince ("Erotic City") vs. Yazoo ("Goodbye 70's")

Wild Thing on the Dance Floor (DJ Matt Hite Mashup) D# Minor, 120 bpm

Thanks to Simon Iddol for the terrific cover!

Hmmm, it doesn't read quite the same. More new useo articles soon. :)

Mix Of The Week - James 'H!ighl!fe' High makes his long-overdue premiere this month on Presents! James has been a devoted member of since the early days, and during this period his skills have increased exponentially. This rapid growth is wildly evident in his Presents mix, as he wiggles through various genres effortlessly - every base is covered here. The overall groove and melodic foundation is so strong that we must inform all listeners that is in no way responsible for any family interventions that may arise after this addictive mix gets you in it's grisp. Groove at your own risk, and enjoy!

Mashup Tip : Mashup developers are still like a bunch of kids playing in a sandbox. That's the thing about mashups, almost all of them are illegal.

Health Experts: 'Sarah Palin Should Be Evaluated by a METH Panel'


Recommended Reading

from Bruce

Jim Ridley: Is Phil Lee the best songwriter in Nashville? If not, you tell him (
About three years ago, Phil Lee's wife said he needed a hobby. He was now in his 50s, she reminded him, and a man that age needs something to occupy his time-an activity to fill those spare, quiet moments as he contemplates the dimming sunset. By God, you're right, Phil Lee thought. He started throwing knives.

ALEX WITCHEL: Anne Heche Is Playing It Normal Now (
Anne Heche sat in a chair while a former professional soccer player from Israel drew dots on her scalp with a black marker. Piny (pronounced PEE-nee, one name only, like Cher) of Beverly Hills has been a guru of wigs and hair extensions since he started here in 1975, with clients like Liberace and Dolly Parton. He also created John Travolta's flowing mane in "Pulp Fiction."

Will Harris: A Chat with Rich Sommer of 'Mad Men' (
On being cast in "Mad Men": "It was my final audition of the pilot season. It had been three miserable, horrible months where I had zero callbacks, zero positive reception, one of those pilot seasons that makes you pretty sure you are never going to be an actor and never want to be an actor. And then that happened."

RICHARD ROEPER: Hughes' 'Ferris' is one of Roeper's favorites (
For years I've had people ask me, "Do you really think 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' is the greatest movie ever made?" Of course not. I never said that -- or if I did, it was said in jest. But what I have said, and what I still say, is that "Ferris" is one of my favorite movies of all time. It has one of the highest "repeatability" factors of any film I've ever seen. As is the case with "The Godfather" movies, with "Caddyshack," with "Pulp Fiction," with "The Maltese Falcon" and with a hundred more of my favorite films, I can watch it again and again.

Roger Ebert: PAPER HEART (PG; 3 stars)
To describe Charlyne Yi as a whimsical comedian doesn't quite capture the full flavor. She may be the first female in the history of MySpace to claim she is 10 years older than she really is. She appears naive, clueless, a little simple, but she's playing us. She embodies that persona in "Paper Heart," a quasi-documentary about love that is sweet, true and perhaps a little deceptive.

Since the beginning of time, man has sought fruitlessly for the Fountain of Youth. Today legions of scientists of all persuasions believe that it is various concoctions of vitamins, minerals, hormones and other molecules that can retard the aging process. Almost all are bogus, and even approaches to make our skin look younger are purely cosmetic.

Ask Joe Weider (
Q: A well-known doctor has advocated drinking up to four cups of coffee a day, saying that it's not only not hazardous, but healthy. Do you agree with this?
A: I certainly enjoy a good cup of coffee after a nice meal, primarily for the taste and experience. However, I am also familiar with the health benefits of coffee. In fact, a 2005 study by researchers at the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pa., determined that coffee accounts for most of the antioxidants Americans receive!

She reportedly has been a model prisoner completing all available prison programs and assisting other inmates with these programs. She has earned two college degrees and has maintained a clean disciplinary record. She has accepted full responsibility for her actions...

Trevor Project Donation

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe has made a donation to a US charity which helps suicidal young gay men and women.

The 20-year-old Harry Potter star made a large donation to the Trevor Project, which runs a 24-hour helpline offering support to "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning" (LGBTQ) young people to try to reduce the number who attempt to take their own lives.

The actor recently told Attitude magazine he "loathed" homophobia and said he hoped his support would raise the charity's profile.

"It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.

Young will be saluted at a dinner and concert in Los Angeles on Jan. 29, two days before the 52nd annual Grammys. The event marks the music industry charity's 20th person of the year tribute.

Finale Date Set

"King of the Hill"

Fox's animated comedy "King of the Hill" will bow out after 13 seasons with an hour-long finale on Sunday, September 13, at 8 p.m.

The show revolves around the family of Hank Hill (Mike Judge). In the finale, "The Boy Can't Help It" / "The Honeymooners," the Hills' teenage son, Bobby (Pamela Adlon), is being teased by girls in his class who pretend to be interested in inviting him as a date for the homecoming dance. Hank, meanwhile, is shocked when his mother announces she is marrying a man she has known only for a few weeks.

The Emmy-winning "King of the Hill" was created by Judge and Greg Daniels.

More House Arrest

Aung San Suu Kyi

A Myanmar court convicted Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi on Tuesday of violating her house arrest by allowing an uninvited American to stay at her home. The head of the military-ruled country ordered the democracy leader to serve an 18-month sentence under house arrest.

The 64-year-old opposition leader has already spent 14 of the last 20 years in detention, mostly under house arrest, and the extension will remove her from the political scene when the junta stages elections next year.

The sentence, which drew international condemnation, was handed down along with a stretch of seven years with hard labor for the American intruder, 53-year-old John Yettaw.

In the end, Suu Kyi's term was less severe than the maximum sentence she faced - five years in prison - and shorter than the one the court initially ordered Tuesday - three years with hard labor.

Banned From Travel

Lubna Hussein

Sudan has barred Lubna Hussein, a woman who faces 40 lashes for wearing trousers in violation of decency laws, from traveling abroad, she said Tuesday.

Hussein said she tried to leave for Lebanon Tuesday after a television channel asked her to appear in a program there.

"It emerged when I tried to get an exit visa that my name was on a blacklist," she told Reuters. "There is no way to get out of Sudan."

Hussein was arrested at a party in July and, with 12 other women, charged with being indecently dressed. A former reporter, Hussein has publicized her case, posing in loose trousers for photos and calling journalists to support her.

Cable Coverage Differs

Health Care

Fox News Channel cut away from President Barack Obama's town hall meeting on health care reform Tuesday as he faced a far more polite crowd than has attended many meetings hosted by members of Congress recently. CNN and MSNBC carried the session in full.

The loud public debates have been a tonic for cable news networks during normally quiet August. The audience for Fox's Bill O'Really last Thursday was a half-million more than on a typical evening this year, and he credited his network's willingness to listen to health care reform opponents for helping bring in viewers.

The loud protests have dominated coverage and put the White House on the defensive. Nearly 60 percent of the time on cable and radio talk shows last week was spent on health care, much of that time debating whether the angry protests were genuine or orchestrated, according to the Project for Excellence in Journalism.

Welcome !

You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.
Make yourself home, take your shoes off...
Go ahead, scratch it if it itches.

The idea is to have fun.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican musicians?
Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
This is your place.

(In other words, submissions are welcome.)
