BREAK IT / FIX IT - a mashup album by PLAYLISP

10 track mashup album - released 6 mar 2014

Since releasing 2 Eyes 2 Ears back in 2011 I've been working on new material as well as developing my taste and style and refining my sense of what a remix "ought" to do. I've now taken all the best parts of my new material and put it together into a second mashup album called BREAK IT / FIX IT.

I wanted it to have that feel of very nearly falling apart but working all the same. So it will get experimental and glitchy but I'll still be there, holding the reigns. It's not an out of control ride - just a wild one.

Thoughts on Sampling

In my earlier work I stayed away from Daft Punk - and some other bands I really liked - because I felt that any track that sampled them would be good simply because they sampled them. I didn't feel like my mashup skills would "add" enough to it, like I'd be relying on the quality of the original material and mooching on the creations of others, which definitely isn't what a mashup should do.

So when I started feeling more confident in my abilities and finding some good matches I may have gone a little overboard. There's a lot of Daft Punk in this album is what I'm trying to tell you.
