Isosine is the mashup artist you’ve never heard of. With multiple mashup albums packed with awesome song after awesome song, I encourage you to check him out below.
Nonstop Pop 2014 Mashup – Isosine
This mashup is amazing. I spent the end of my 2014 hunting for the perfect “end-of-year” mashup but regular contender Daniel Kim really disappointed with this year’s Pop Danthology 2014. Isosine has you covered, though. With seamless transitions from song to song and a catchy underlying melody and strong beat, I’m sure you’ll love this one.
Mashup Manifesto III – Isosine
DOWNLOAD this album. 13 jaw droppingly nice mashups. Pay attention to Alive and Nonstop Pop 2012.
Mashup Manifesto II – Isosine
Intro (No Power) – Isosine Mashup
The Night is Young – Isosine Mashup
Wait a Minute – Isosine Mashup
Kanye West teams up with arguably the most successful musician to date. Paul McCartney. The 72-year-old McCartney has had an iconic musical run with bands like the Beatles and Paul McCartney and Wings. Despite having virtually fallen off the map since Wings, McCartney makes his debut on the modern Hip-Hop scene. In “Only One” Kanye sings from the perspective of his mother as she looks down upon him from heaven. “Only One” is reminiscent of The Beatles’s “Let it Be,” a song written by McCartney to his late mother. “Only One” is a beautiful minimalistic trak that foreshadows the chemistry between Kanye and McCartney. Rumor has it that the two have a mixtape in the works. Enjoy.
J Cole’s new album dropped earlier this week. This is one of the better tracks on the album, but the whole album is beyond nice. Check it out here.
Don’t miss J Cole’s new single “Apparently.” Great stuff.
Bad Boy for Life – P. Diddy
This 2001 Diddy trak is an old time classic. The guitar riff adds a Walk This Way aspect and works perfectly with the flow of the entire song.
International Players Anthem – UGK (feat. OutKast)
UGK and OutKast collaborated in 2006 to create this fresh trak. It’s one of the best tunes UGK has ever released. It’s worth your time.
I’m sure many of you have already found this gem but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. Carlos Serrano mashes up Kanye and Sam Smith to make the perfect laidback ‘trak.’ Preserving Smith’s iconic piano and vocal riffs from “I’m Not the Only One” and overlaying them blissful Kanye rap, Carlos Serrano effectively creates a perfect “Chill” mashup. Enjoy.
This song is straight chilling (as is the album cover). ODESZA does not disappoint and delivers a catchy tune thats perfect for any occasion. Bump this when you’re doing your work, recovering from a long day, or when you need your day to turn around. Enjoy.
The already-great house trak, “Wasted Love,” has been remixed and transformed into an even more potent, heavy anthem by the dynamic duo: AN21 & Sebjak. The two came out with “Gods,” a while ago for SIZE records, and have made their name ever since.
Ty Dolla $ign teams up with Diplo and DJ Dahi to release a trak that is straight fire. Diplo–a DJ known for his trap anthems–has really honed his production skills and seamlessly transitions from his trap roots to the hip-hop scene. Song’s a beauty.
Lisztomania is a classic. Parrad preserves the integrity of the original and adds in a laidback drop which is perfect to vibe out to. Grab your nicest headphones for this one.
Whats Luv – Ashanti ft. Fat Joe :
This old tune by Fat Joe and Ashanti is definitely worth your time. With Ashanti’s catchy hook and fresh verses from Fat Joe, we know you’ll like this throwback.
Wouldn’t Get Far (The Game ft. Kanye West):
The Game and Kanye teamed up to make this dope track in 2006 and we’re sure you’ll appreciate that we’re bringing it back to you.
Game’s Pain – The Game (ft. Keyshia Cole)
One of The Game’s better tracks on his 2008 LAX album, Game’s Pain reflects on hip-hop history and does so with a sweet beat and meaningful lyrics.
