Top Albums 2006- #11

Night Ripper
Girl Talk

Most mash-ups settle for blending a couple of different songs, and rarely outside of their genres. Girl Talk brings the heat with a dozen or more samples per song. Night Ripper elevates the mash-up to a bona fide art. But the main thing that’s been missing from the mash-up is the party itself. Everyone should know by now that even indie kids want to dance. Everybody knows that no-one only listens to Hip Hop, Pop or Indie Rock exclusively. But I don’t think anyone knew they would go together so well. Dance Punk didn’t die. It was reborn as a mash-up. Unfortunately, Girl Talk is the only one that knows it.
