Cutman x Complex: An oldschool hiphop/video game mixtape

I recently had the oppertunity to create a unique mix for Complex Magazine’s Video Game section. Following their E3 coverage, Complex was looking for a way to showcase the classic chiptune video game sound. Being the old school hiphop head that I am, I rounded up some of the best mashup artists who had worked with my GameChops instrumentals.

With guys like OhhhREALY and BigGanga0 from YouTube, and DJ PsyQ from Soundcloud, and some beats DJ Grumble and I put together, I set off on a hectic week of mixing, mashing, and mastering. The end result can be heard right here on Complex magazine.

I hope you enjoy the mixtape! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for ages, and I’m happy I finally got the opportunity from Complex.

Instrumental versions of the mash-up tracks can be downloaded on my album GameChops Vol. 1

Mixer Productions

It’s about time I featured MIXER PRODUCTIONS. Based in the UK, MIXERPROD is a mash-up artist that I’ve been spinning for a few months now. This guy’s Soundcloud is like a library of shit I love, well produced mashups of pop, hip hop and r&b with video game and pop-culture instrumental tracks. Like Tae K, MixerProd represents hard and delivers a ton of songs. Here’s a few choice tracks:

Craig David vs Streets of Rage – 7 Days of Rage by MixerProductions

Michael Jackson vs Sonic – Dark Fortress Rock by MixerProductions
