DJ Wüdi Mashup: Just Can’t Get Flexible in 1999

JCGF Cover ArtOkay, folks — for better or for worse (but hopefully not too much worse), I spent some time playing around in GarageBand over the past couple of days. The result: Depeche Mode’s ‘Flexible’ and ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ plus Prince’s ‘1999’ equals DJ Wüdi – Just Can’t Get Flexible in 1999 (7.8Mb MP3).

It’s my first attempt at creating a mashup rather than just listening to ’em. Probably not likely to make it to the top of the charts, but I don’t think it’s too terribly bad for a first try.

Give it a listen, and feel free to let me know what you think (good or bad)!

Update: I’ve made some slight tweaks to the track (mostly moving the rap section back by a few bars, it was coming in too early in the first version) and replaced the download file with v2. If you haven’t downloaded this yet, you’re set, otherwise feel free to re-download the updated mix.

Update 5/2/2008: Mini-review by Mashuptown: “wow! floor filla’. quite splendid indeed.” Sweet!

  1. Michael,

    Don’t sell yourself so short… this is damn good! There are a few production issues that I can hear, but that is because I have an overcritical musical ear… but shit… for a first shot this is Great!

    Now I may need to pick your brain on how you accomplished this in Garage Band ;)

  2. Very cool.

    I’d like to do stuff like this but I only dj’d at a beautiful music station. Nobody would really want to hear a mash up of The 101 Strings and John Wayne’s dramatic reading of The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

    (laughs) Oh, I don’t know — personally, I think that could be fun to try to put together. I’ve got a good recording of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s version that could go in, too.

    Besides, one of the mashups I found while I was exploring the other day was a combination of Jay-Z’s rapping over J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto. I’m not a big fan of Jay-Z, but whoever created it gets full points for originality!
