These days I spend a lot of time randomly crawling around Soundcloud looking for interesting music. It’s pretty amazing what you can find on there. I’ll think up an artist that I really enjoy or a record label I’m a fan of, do a quick search and then BAM… something rad pops up. That was the case when I came across Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., the indie band from Detroit most notably famous for their track “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor)”.
The duo has miraculously revived the concept of the mashup (which rightfully died a few years back) combining The Beach Boys Notorious B.I.G. for a track titled “Beach Blanket Biggie”. The track manages to combine the 1966 classic “I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times” with Biggie’s “Hypnotize”, which have then been mixed up with an 8-bit, underwater Mario Bros. level sort of vibe to it. That hopefully makes more sense once you hear the track. Pretty damn catchy, prepare to listen to this on repeat.
