Mp3(s) of the Week: djBC’s Holiday Mash-ups


Yes, boys and girls, it’s time once again for Santastic!, the third-annual installment of holiday mix-and-mash-ups performed and compiled by the redoubtable djBC. (Fresh from snagging the BMA for “Outstanding DJ.”)

As always, this year’s edition is a corker. For kids who’ve been waiting for the red-suited man all December, Divide and Kreate’s “Velvet Santa” sets up a rendezvous between a pre-creepy Michael Jackson and a very naughty Lou Reed on some dingy New York City street. BC’s own “You Shook Me All Noel” has the Peanuts kids philosophizing over devilish Angus Young riffs, and his “A Wicked Hardcore Christmas” finds ska/punk dudes Big D and the Kids Table doing Jaeger bombs in Allston to jingle bells and swooning strings. King Of PantsAlala Falala Hasselhoff” gets festive with the ladies from CSS and The Hoff himself. Meanwhile, DJ Flack’s “Hanukkah In Dub,” Voicedude’s “Dreidel All The Way” remind us that the holiday season is not just for the goyim.

But our pick for mash-up of the season — splendidly timed for the recent (and future?) Page/Plant/Jones/Bonham, Jr. reunion — is mojochronic’s “Yuletide Zeppelin” which seamlessly grafts all your timeless holiday favorites to Zep Set staples like “Kashmir,” “Stairway,” and “Dazed and Confused.”

It just makes too much sense: Didn’t we read in Hammer of the Gods that the band sold their souls to Santa?


On semi-related note: don’t forget that the New Year’s Day deadline is looming for the dj BC/Big D and the Kids Table collabo Strictly Mixed and Mashed remix contest — in which amateur bastard-pop auteurs are invited to download Big D masters and create their own chopped/screwed remixes.

More Santastic...
