Girl Talk Mashup Mayhem

First, no samples of the artist on this blog when you can download the album for free at his website (Girl Talk's All Day album). I know you'll want a snipet to know if you'll like it, but trust me, if you've followed radio at all, can take a music joke (Having Pitbull's "Hotel Room Service" being played over the happy Depeche Mode's "I Just Can't Get Enough"), and have the time to sit down with the whole album, this album will blow the clothing off of you and leaving you sitting naked on your sofa wondering what just happened and if it can happen again.

In all seriousness though, albums like this (All Day by Girl Talk) are meant to be played all in one go, to be taken as a whole idea and not to be broken into songs. All of the samples flow seamlessly into each other, all 372 of the songs being sampled in fact. Surprisingly, you'll recognize all of these chart-hitting songs, or at least close to all of them. You'll laugh at some of the combination, be amazed at how some songs worked amazingly well together, and find yourself hitting repeat to replay through some of the 10 second mash-ups you wished were longer.

Girl Talk (originally known as Greg Gillis, hard at work in the photo above) is a remarkable mash-up artist. This album is another remarkable non-stop dance album. Not much more to say other than just get it, dance about, and then wonder how you ever survived without it.

Look forward to hearing more about this artist and keep a lookout for tour dates. If you can listen to All Day  or Feed The Animals and not at some point say, this is quite epic, let me know. Hell, give me more recommendations for Mash-Up artists you think make the world explode sonically with new ideas raised from old. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
