Bridging The (Generation) Gap - A Guilty Pop Mix


While brainstorming with myself for new ideas for my upcoming mix, my family suddenly popped up. I suddenly realized how great it would be if I would be able to connect with my favorite nieces and nephew through music and what better way to do this than to come up with a mixset solely dedicated to them. Enjoy this one kids, as this mix is for you. :)

Honestly, I never imagined myself including Britney Spears or Paris Hilton (no offense to their fans reading this blog; it's just not my cup of tea) in one of my mixsets, but thanks to great DJs and remixers like Tiesto and Jason Nevins that I suddenly appreciated and even tolerated pop songs like "Piece of Me" and "Nothing In This World."

With some hesitation at first, I eventually enjoyed doing this mix and unknowingly found myself even humming to Soulja Boy's catchy chorus and somewhat retro/DefJam-like beats of Fergie's "Glamorous."

BTW, before publishing this set, I had them listen to it in the car yesterday (test driving it somewhat) and voila, we suddenly had an instant karaoke and dance party! :)

Tracklist:
1) Promiscuous (Indian Sunset Remix) - Nelly Furtado feat. Timbaland and Amar
2) My Love (Rene Goulets D-Cup Send-Up Remix) - Justin Timberlake
3) Piece Of Me (Tiesto Club Remix) - Britney Spears


4) Don't Stop The Music (The Wideboys Club Mix) - Rihanna
5) Real Girl (Moto Blanco Remix) - Mutya Buena
6) I Got It From My Mama (Vibelicious House It Up Mix) - Will.I.Am
7) Crank Dat (Steve Angello & Laidback Luke) - Soulja Boy - very catchy tune!
8) Sexy Back (Richard Humpty Vission Mix) - Justin Timberlake
9) Gimme More (Stonebridge Club Mix) - Britney Spears

10) Umbrella (7ups Klubhouse Rework) - Rihanna feat. Jay-Z

11) Hot Stuff (Chase and Status Mix) - Craig David
12) Stronger (A-Trak Remix) - Kanye West
13) Bounce It From My Mama (MashUp Mix) - Sean Paul versus Will.I.Am
14) Glamorous (Culture Shock Remix) - Fergie
15) Lovestoned (Justice Remix) - Justin Timberlake
16) Nothing In This World (Jason Nevins Remix) - Paris Hilton
17) Since You've Been Gone (Jason Nevins Remix) - Kelly Clarkson
18) Big Girls Don't Cry (Raphael Gomes Remix) - Fergie


19) Don't Cha (Kaskade Club Mix) - Pussycat Dolls

dude... your mixes are AWESOME! one big wish: it would be really great if you could put the unmixed tracks up along with your mix (like a lot of mix albums do - "cd 1: mixed / cd 2: unmixed"... there is some stuff i would just LOVE to explore further :-) thank you very much again for your taste and all the time & love you put into your work!

hendryman,

thanks much for the very nice and encouraging words bro, appreciate it greatly. :) makes me wanna do more mixes and share them.

anyways, as per your request, am sorry, but i might not be able to do that type as its a bit time consuming and also would just like to concentrate on the mix. however, if you want some of the tracks that i've used, you could just send me your email re: what tracks you like and i will be sending them to you. :)
