I Kissed A Molecule

Summer 2008 in Germany: Katy Perry´s hit "I Kissed A Girl" is gonna be THE BIG THING for the next few weeks.

Summer 2008 in Germany: "Tanz der Moleküle" by German pop band "Mia" is still a classic for the dancefloor.

Summer 2008 in Germany: TBP mashed the two sources, using Katy´s acapella and an edited version of the Mia - Song.

TBP - I Kissed A Molecule

Let Me Think About American Boys !

Well, not me, but Estelle.

As an example of what I produced recently, here´s Estelle´s "American Boy" mashed with "Let Me Think About It" by Fedde Le Grand & Ida Corr:

2004 - How it all began

It´s how this serious mashup thing started for me back in 2004: I had a DJ Gig in front of 3000 people and the party´s topic was "90´s ´til nowadays". I thought of giving the people something special to dance to. That´s how these two tracks were born:

Ricky Martin Vs. Safri Duo - Maria Is A-Live

Nelly Furtado Vs. Dr.Alban - Powerless Hallelujah

The Beginning of it all - A Weird Medley from 1999

As I found the breakbeat which the Chemical Brothers used on a sampling CD, there was the idea to add some special loops and so on. Maybe my first mash-up - like production ...
