The Anatomy of a Mashup : Daft Punk

We all like a good mashup, right? Sure. As long as it's not overly long and it's clever. A mysterious (That's a lie. He's an Australian named Cameron Adams.) fellow calling himself The Man in Blue put together a mashup of 23 Daft Punk songs and created a visualizer to show how the songs fit together in the mashup. You can see when a chunk of a song starts and ends, and how loud it gets by watching a series of colorful concentric circles, each representing a song. Intelligent stuff. I present: The Anatomy of a Mashup. Can't even imagine the coding magic behind it.

Speaking of mashups, the wise blog reader will check out Xaphoon Jones's sweet mashup of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" and Passion Pit's "Sleepyhead," aptly titled "The Jackson Pit."

The wise blog reader should stay way from mashups of this variety. Not bad, but there's better stuff out there.

Picked up the tip from Gizmodo.
