Yin of Yang Uploads!

Editors' Picks


A message from our friends in London and Liverpool that they are doing just fine. Curious with the words Ashwan with the beats. Can’t We Just All Get Along?

Sweet Life

Radio ready mash-up of two ccMixter artists by a third. A beautiful production couches ASHWAN’s interpretation of Lisa DeBenedictis vocals with the addition of a rap (and cuts?) by Curious.

As harmonically solid as it is on message, from heaven (or a basement in Manchester) to your ears.


A soulful house gem by Deutscheunschuld. Truly a master of many genres. This track is like Miguel Migs house w/ a touch of Kruder and Dorfmeister and a ton o’ funk. Oh yeah and really sweet vocals. DU rocks! : )

Don't Stop (mizzG mix)

by: Girlio
Hippidy hoppety head snap defying first upload by Girlio is an instant Mixter hit. Using JLang’s a cappella upload to brilliant effect. Listen and move.

Robot Vomit - Cuckoo-REMIX

Contemporary, fundamentally sound and perfect!!!! Sometimes in the world of remixes and mash-ups we get away from more traditional sounding music (which can be very innovative at times), but then there are times where nothing beats excellent musicianship. robotvomit has povided us with that and I expect this piece to stay on a lot of playlists for quite some time. This is one mellow day dreamer of a song that could fit comfortably with the trendiest of alternative heads or some MOR radio station playing softly in an office space near you. I guess I’m trying to say it has a very universal appeal.

the beat

The beat indeed (!) is infectious, meditative and lulls you into a chill-trance. Pulling off one of the best examples of sample layering on ccMixter, cdk wins the award for “most improved Mixter’ (not sure how he feels about that, we mean it in the best possible way with best possible feelings of respect and admiration). Week after week I’ve watched and listened as the uploads just got better and better, surprise after surprise.

Vocal flavorings sprinkled throughout by JLang who is closing in on “most sampled Mixter” — a beautiful combination.

Thanks guys.

Cuckoo (lonely remix)

Strings, harp and a divine sense of harmony makes this a bone chilling journey in the soul of shockshadow and Lisa.

Sitting down is highly recommended when listening because it will knock you off your feet.

Below ( The Dirty Water Mix )

by: J.Lang
Ambient hip hop is probably the best way to describe the swirling, swishing yet head-bobbing interpretation of Lisa’s song.

A remix succeeds when it sounds as if the vocals and music were always meant to be together, in this case as if she actually sang over this music in the recording studio.

Another amazing example of art in the commons that never would have happened otherwise.

Congrats to J and Lisa and good luck J!

Below (frozen in time mix)

My favorite mix at CCMixter. Simple and relaxing music with depth. I haven’t picked anything in a long time but I noticed nobody had jumped on this one yet. : )

Cuckoo (passive-aggressive mix)

Rich, emotional brilliant arrangement of Lisa D.’s Cuckoo vocals. hisboyelroy takes his mastery of textures to a huge range of samples from the Magnatune library yet throughout it all there’s no doubt who’s remix this is.

hisboyelroy was one of the top vote getters in the WIRED CD remix contest and this one is sure to be in the running for the Magnatune contest.

Good luck!

Language Of My Reality

by: Click
This remix is incredibly simple and complex at the same time. I guess some people here already noticed that Click is my “friend in did” for some years now, and this was one of the reasons I did not want to write these words at first. But then I realized that being silent is even worse, because apart from our cooperation, Click is an incredibly talented musician, who deserves being noticed and rewarded for his work. This version of Language of my reality is the best one I have ever heard. Bravo, Michalku!

ill Hustlin' (Still Remixin')

Perhaps I’m not the best person to write about rap, but this one made me feel really good. Elegant, smooth, jazzy. Plush sounds with a spice. Night music.

All I Need-The Word Play Remix(feat J. Gomes)

by: J.Lang
This one is really special. Both Deutschenschuld and J.Lang did the incredible thing. Preparing the source materials for something completly different, they managed to achieve nearly perfect balance, as if working together from the absolute beginnig.
Great, clear instrumental layer and the rap that floats.

Bad Attraction - EarJamm Mix

An impenetrable wall of distorted energy, fuzz and melodic noise. This production is pro-level and polished. Its very heavy on the metal and down right futuristic. I think TheHipCola views life through strobe light glasses!!!

Dirtbag- teru - remix

by: teru
I always knew Teru is a genius. He brought my youth back! What’s more, all my girlfriends love this song. They say it gives them goose bumps or whatever they call it. Thank you Teru. Excellent mix, fantastic arrangement, well ballanced vocals. Time to retire? :)
