What do you get when you mix Santana’s “Oye Como Va” with Ton Loc’s “Wild Thing”?
Or Queen’s “We Will Rock You” with NWA’s “Dopeman”?
A call from your neighbours, perhaps.
But we do insist you check out Team Canada, a pair of Montreal turntable-ists who are impressing fans the world-over with their inventive mash-ups of classic rock songs and classic hip hop, with a little old skool scratching thrown in for fun.
The Beatles v. Notorious B.I.G., The Bangles meet The Jackson Five—you must hear it to believe it. The just-released second CD, Classic Material Volume II does amazing things with “Ooh Child (Things Are Going to Get Easier.)”
Just maybe not with the neighbours.
