King's disciples - the mixtape

I had this idea to remix/mash-up Michael Jackson with the artists today most directly influenced by his model of singer/dancer/entertainer a little while back, and I've posted Billie Jean, Scream and I want you back previously on this blog. Since his passing I've rounded out the set with a few more tracks to make a complete mixtape. It's amazing how easily his music is transplanted into the current pop scene, although given the artists involved it's not all that surprising. Enjoy!

In memoriam - Michael Jackson 1958-2009

PS - Had to re-upload the mixtape after finding a couple of bloopers in U rock my world, which are now fixed. Also, the back cover doesn't list Clipse on Billie Jean, but they're in there and I hope they don't come and shoot me or something.

I've been following Australian artist Daniel Merriweather since he put out "She's got me" on Mark Ronson's Here comes the fuzz disc. He's about to release his solo debut, Love and War, and the first single is "Change (feat Wale)." His record label has put out a remix contest for the track - so here's my effort:

It's probably not even going to be allowed because, typically, I didn't read the fine print in the contest rules which state you're supposed to be from the US and also no additional music not in public domain can be used (I've sampled Ann Peebles).

You can check out the original version and other contest entries at RcrdLbl

I can't let her go

Made some changes to my own remix of Beyonce's Irreplaceable. Something about the first version just gnawed at my eardrums and I subjected myself to the diva once more...

She's like chocolate mudcake...

Phew. Took a long 48 hours and a lot of head-against-brick-wall banging to put this together but here's a remix of Beyonce's Irreplaceable, using a Commodores sample.

Beyonce - Irreplaceable (studiogypsy remix)

I hope you like it. I feel like Beyonce's lungs has been surgically pumped into my brain via my ears. I'm worried I will be forevermore to the left, to the left...to the left, to the left...

Back to the boards

Made two new remixes, after a long hiatus.

This one is childish, but I couldn't resist -

Lily Allen feat Eminem - Fuck you, I just don't give a fuck

This one is me trying to turn Clipse into actual western cowboys, aside from the swaggering, pistol-toting drug dealers they already claim to be -

Ry Cooder feat Clipse and Britney Spears - When the last time (Nevada)

Trying a new file-sharing service and it should be much more reliable than zShare.

wind catchers

i think the precision of a blade might be my first love in creativity. i made these wind catchers to replace the long torn paper wind catchers for these chimes.


i've taken up earring making again. it's the easiest way for me to play with colour.

waterpainting experiments

last august i took 10 days off work to stay at home, rejuvinate and to try and do something creative. oil painting requires more room than i have, so i tried waterpainting instead. these are two of the better pieces that i produced.
