Listen to this! Mashup Has Matured

I don't want to bore you too much with my latest find but, I was so impressed by this.
Long gone are the days when mashups were just some vocal track laid over a recognisable backing or two tracks that fitted well together more or less playing together with one chorus and the other verses or that kind of simplistic thing.
Oh no.
When I listened to this I realised: These guys are now so talented..! This isn't just adding loops and drag and drop samples from different tracks, the guy that created this, especially the Adamski/ Killers one, is a craftsman! yes I did say that.
The two songs (well there are more in there but two main ones) are not just cut and pasted together, they have been pulled apart and a completely new arrangement has been cleverly crafted out of them. There is of course the verses of one song then the chorus of another but it goes a lot deeper than that: the way the music and the timings are arranged to fit the two together in some seemingly very difficult to achieve areas, it's just great.
I think they did an amazing job on it.
the Oasis track too is similar. Crafted out of the two tracks, The result is a completely new arrangement with surprises throughout.
I am not new to listening to these mashups but I obviously haven't listened to one for a while.
Just wanted you to hear these.
I got a few of them with these if you're interested, let me know.

Yer some more links/uploads would be sweet.

It would be good to get back into the mashup days of boomselection and xfm induced mashup years.

Hey thanks for the comment. I wish more people would let me know what they think!
I'm glad you liked it. Pretty damn good eh?
I'll upload the rest of them that came with those two tracks. It was 'packaged' as an album with the title MTV Mashups but I didn't post it in that way due to the fact that the tracks are all different bitrates and it's annoying to listen to them, volume going all over the place and some of them at 128k sound bad.
Anyway I'll put some of the better quality ones up from the set ok!
