Octoberfest 08- MJ Bootleg Special



Michael Jackson was the king of bootlegs (remixes made without his permission) which endlessly found their way into after hours clubs the last five years. It was as if his songs were made to be mashed up by other people 20 years later and still sound as in your face as before. His notoriety played into this phenomenon and there was always that sharp edge to his songs (that Madonna never had)

I made the mix as a personal retrospective of his music as he died recently. There are just a handful of his songs in it, the rest are mashups of other 80′s tunes that for me define and refine the unique sound he introduced from Off The Wall onwards. The mix is made using vinyl records, a pair of dodgy technics turntables and an old two-channel mixer – nothing fancy or hi-tek. Apologies if you hear some snap, crackle, and pop if you have a listen.
