MASH’ed Up….Always served hot!

I pretty much have a love/hate relationship with the shuffle function of my ipod.  At times it spits out way too much electro and not enough Alt Pop/Rock and then sometimes too much Hip-Hop and just not enough of that Boogie Woogie (yep, that’s a real genre on my pod).  But this morning when the massive track Shook by Emancipator came on during my ride into work, it reminded me of college and one of my favorite mash-ups that deserved more airtime for my ears. The song features Mobb Deep’s raw and uncut lyrics from Shook Ones which blend seamlessly over the spruced up backing track Vaka by Sigur Ros. Now, Mash-ups are generally fun, but usually never amazing. However, this chilling track is a prime example of how two songs from opposite ends of the musical spectrum blend into a masterpiece, the Mona Lisa of mash-ups.
