Please follow me over to Facebook...

I have to confess I tend to forget about this little blog, and so it lags behind everything I'm doing.

So I have taken the decision to stop updating this blog and ask you instead to like my facebook page instead (http://www.facebook.com/Spareelbowskin) to keep up with my latest stuff.

[update] As the time of writing this update (12th Sept 2013) my official.fm account is marked for deletion at the end of the month so many of the links and players on this site will cease to function permanently. Details of where you can find my tracks will always be up to date on my facebook page above.

To mark this sad occasion, I shall make my parting gift on this blog something fun and most definitely not to be taken seriously.

Hope to see you on Facebook :)

One Worry About Love

I'll admit it's been a while since I've done a mashup (other than the absolutely awesome BIMA project - see numerous other posts below)

So here's a new one for a Mashup Monday, Ivy's "Worry About You" mashed with Bob Marley's classic "One Love"

Soundcloud seems to love me again, so let's give their player a go this time.

Coming Soon

It's been very quiet around here, and if I'm honest I've not posted some stuff I've done recently (I'll have to play catch-up at some point)

Something new coming very, very soon though.  A little project done with some of my mashup chums ToToM, Fissunix and Colatron.  Nearly a year in the making (or that might just be how long it feels like!), it's been worth the wait.






Watch this space...

Landsmile

Fleetwood Mac's Landslide and Lily Allen's (uncensored) Smile. I think this has to be classified as another of my remashmixups again, as I have added quite a bit to the original tracks. The Instrumental part of Landslide is just guitars and because of this I felt the track didn't build enough as time went on, so I got out my bass and played along, added a sprinkling of kick, shaker, tambourine and triangle(!) with a soup├žon of synth to bring the whole project in line with where I wanted it to go. This is probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I fancied doing something downtempo, simple and chilled - so here's the result...

She Loved Fireflies

Owl City "Fireflies" and Maroon 5 "She Will Be Loved" gently massaged together creating a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts (well I think so anyway). This was one of those mashups that I just knew was going to work well as soon as I introduced the two sources to one another - they were soon chatting and getting along as if they'd know each other for years - metaphorically speaking of course...

Three Bar Tender

A little something for the weekend sir? Why, yes, I think I'll take another of those fine SpareElbowSkin Remashmixups please! Kele's Tenderoni remixed with a good helping of Electric Six's Gay Bar, served with a light sprinkling of Yeah 3X by Chris Brown - another remashmixup that not only tastes good, it does you good too!

White Gravity

Something a little different for this one. I know there are a fair few mashups around using Billy Idol's White Wedding, but I could hear a more stripped down version in my head, and doing a remix of BT's Force Of Gravity gave me the perfect backing for the feel I was after. So it's not strictly a mashup and it's not fully a remix, so I've decided to call it a Remashmixup - I think that covers it. Downloads via the player
