An encore from the Jaydiohead project

Some people can’t get into the mashups that the young people are doing. This is not a problem that afflicts me.

I don’t tire of the Jaydiohead mixes that put Jay-Z in a mythical room with Radiohead, with the result sounding so orchestrally epic and effortlessly cool. I adored using “Fall In Step” from the previous release in my inaugural voyage as a DJ – it sounds extra-good when played over massive club speakers. This one’s ace too:

Song and Cry – Jaydiohead



Download the whole free EP here; Max Tannone (the hands behind the magic) just finished these late last night.

  • Have you ever heard of “The Grey Album”? It’s a mash-up of Jay-Z’s Black album and The Beatle’s White album. It’s incredible (and hard to find anymore).

    Thanks always for the excellent music samples!

  • the grey album was taken off everything because sony threatened to sue for his life, Sony owns everything that he used, but yeah that album is EPIC. and .. I know someone who has it, so good I listen to it all the time.

    Jay-Z can mash with anyone, thats how I feel, what about collision course with linkin park?

  • This album isn’t bad, but, it’s not as good as the one he put out earlier in the year. Nothing on this album compares to “Wrong Prayer.”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
