Mixtape: Shenanigans VIII – Cut & Paste Volume I

If you ever wondered what it would be like to hear Matthew Wilder mixed into The Beatles mixed into Orange Juice mixed into DJ Yoda, well wonder no more!

Let’s just think about this for a moment, shall we? Why would I, a DJ with 18 years of experience DJing in Chesterfield, Sheffield, Manchester and London, want to mix Right Said Fred’s “Deeply Dippy” with “Passion” by Gat Decor? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself: what does this have to do with the Royal Baby? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with the Royal Baby! It does not make sense! Look at me. I’m a half-decent DJ with great spelling confident in using vinyl, CDs, MP3 decks and Ableton Live, and I’m talkin’ about the Royal Baby! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you’re in that rubbish town centre bar that plays the same records from the Radio One A playlist as every other bar and looks just like every other bar and is piled high with 17-year old chavs buying coke to mix with the £8 bottle of Morrisson’s vodka that they’ve got stashed in their cheap handbag just like every other bar, does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen with excellent musical taste, it does not make sense! If this mix does feature Right Said Fred’s “Deeply Dippy” expertly mixed with “Passion” by Gat Decor, you must hire me to DJ in your bar and make it better! The defense rests.

So, there was a bit of a thing when I did this. Because I’m one of those stupid wilful people, once I’m made the master of the mix I deleted my source files so I was never ever tempted to go mess with it again. Upon playing it back, which you’d think any reasonable person would have done before deleting the source files, I discovered there was a slight SNAFU at the end of “Let Me Know”/the start of “Something’s Jumping In My Shirt”. I’ve just segued them together to make good of the screw-up, which I’m particularly miffed about because it had Lisa Marie’s little spoken introduction to “Something’s Jumping…”

Anyway, the mix itself begins my obsession with using as many tracks as I can in one mix that will still fit on a single CD – there’s 83 songs used here. Bonus points if you can identify the movies that I used two spoken dialogue sections from.
