Collected Mashups Vol. 4b: The Shitcase Cinema Remixes

My musical collaboration with Johnny Shitcase and Professor Bruce of Shitcase Cinema began in 2009. I don't recall the precise circumstances of our initial contact, but I think it had something to do with my search for Youtube footage of Donald Sutherland's notorious eye-roll scene in Virus, the sci-fi-horror flick of 1999, stumbling across a Shitcase Cinema review of the film in the process, and consequently watching a whole bunch of Shitcase. I absolutely love(d) their humorous, do-it-yourself approach to reviewing (mainly) bad movies, which showcased (and still features) John's well-written scripts and thick Yorkshire accent, Professor Bruce's "science" segments and role as comic foil, their silly over-the-top skits often involving a cast of characters such as Caveman Wayne, a heavy dose of Pythonesque absurdity, and (of course) a propensity for creative cursing.
DOWNLOAD (alternate link in "comments").

This led me to contact Johnny Shitcase, and after some friendly back-and-forth messages, I offered (or agreed, I don't remember) to do some mashups of Professor Bruce's already perfect theme song with some soundtrack tunes. Over the course of the next couple years, I did a total of seven short Shitcase Cinema Theme Song mashups/remixes, six of which were featured in various Shitcase reviews. At some point, with the Google takeover of Youtube and its private message system, John going on a long trip overseas, and me having various other things on my plate, our collaboration petered out, so I thought I'd take this occasion to duly celebrate it with this collection. And what better way to introduce uninitiated not-I fans to Shitcase Cinema than with a series of Shitcase videos that feature my little remixes? (See end of post.) DOWNLOAD (alternate link in "comments").

Collected Mashups Vol. 4b: The Shitcase Cinema Remixes is a mini album (only 36 MB) intended for die-hard not-I collectors and Shitcase enthusiasts, which includes the following mini-maxi mix of all the remixes:

Collected Mashups Vol. 4: Sleeper

Good Morning! The next installment of the Collected Mashups series has finally arrived! I've called this collection "Sleeper" because of: 1.) "Sleeper (noun): someone or something unpromising or unnoticed that suddenly attains prominence or value"; 2.) Klaudia Gottwald's portrait of me featured on the cover; and 3.) My love of deep sleep whenever I can get it. Download itDisc 1 Disc 2 (alternate links in "comments").

These mashups are all from 2009. This was a great year for me in terms of my development and new place in the mashup game. My previous work was finally getting recognized, as was my new stuff. I performed at Bootie Munich and at Bootie Vienna and played out several of the mashes featured on this album live, including "Nanafushi Bulletproof" and "Chop Synergy Dare," which are being released here for the first time. I ventured back into the 80s with the popular "Spin Shout Right Round!" and "He Got Scream," and explored uncharted territory with epic jams like "MORE Cowbell," "100 Million Butterflies," and "Raising The Small Things In Life." My mashups had decisively shifted to the melodic. I still showed love for hip-hop, but also for the pioneering adventures that had come to define my style (e.g. "Three Skies A Lady," "Phantom Sanctuary").

Despite my occasional pop stylings and apparent pangs "to be liked", I think most of these mashups are utterly uncompromising, and all the better for it.

Don't make music you think people want to hear, make music you want to hear!

Love, DJ not-I

P.S.i I couldn't decide how to order these mashups, so I (mostly) arranged them according to increasing beats per minute (BPMs).
P.S.ii Don't "sleep on" Disc 2. It's not filler and includes two previously unreleased tracks.

Collected Mashups Vol. 2: The Videos

Following up on my last post, here are all the extant videos for Collected Mashups Vol. 2a and Vol. 2b (no videos have been produced for Vol. 2c). I made two of these myself, but most were made by people who liked my stuff enough to make fan videos and/or use them as soundtracks to whatever cool things they were doing, and were decent enough to credit them. To me, there is no greater compliment, and I have duly credited these video-makers.

All of the featured mashups are available for free download as part of the albums in the links above or individually via hearthis.at.

Enjoy & Have Fun! Love, DJ not-I

(P.S. My three recommendations are marked with *)

1.* Trans Planet Insomnia (Kraftwerk vs. Faithless vs. Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force) (Video by not-I)


Six more videos after the jump!
