This January we started this blog on a new domain, moving from the old site. The year is almost done – time to have a look at our top articles.
2009 was the year of UK Funky and it is no surprise that our most read articles were Funky – related. The mix-series by DJ One Drop “What do u call it UK Funky” (initial mix here, pack of all here was downloaded like crazy (we stopped counting at 25’000). DJ One Drop is member of Danny Scrilla’s crew Rize’n’Shine and was featured here as a guestmix.
More interesting guest mixes: Danny and Marflix on the byte.fm show “Tropical Heat” and Marflix at TimTurboThursday #37 and #49.
This year was also a good year for productions and remixes – like the awarded dubstep remix of “Hold the line“, a soca remix of “Soca Alibaba” or Danny’s notorious “Ultraviolence” or his beautifull remix of “Like Crystal“.
The new live band of Danny and Marflix – Tropicality – had it’s first appearence at the dhm linkup in Hamburg, and the video of the show made it to #10 of our most read articles list. Speaking of projects: the Lazerdaze flew over the ocean and toured the US during a burning hot summer.
The Berlin carnival “Karneval der Kulturen” is always a important date for the crew.. no surprise our carnival edition of the MashUp Show made it to one of the most downloaded shows. Also the video of this years anthem “Was feierst du?” and the video of our band “Carnival Explosion” had many viewers.
We also had many nice radioshows – listed by popularity: 07-06 (Madness from head to toe – the summer carnivals), 08-24 (Coupé Decalé, Kuduro, Funana), 09-21 (Soca and Kuduro), 06-08 (Soca – summer carnivals), 07-27 (Soca – more summer carnivals), 10-26 (Keep the bumpers rollin – groovy soca edition), 11-30 (Soca, Funky and Parang), and of course the latest show with brand new 2010 soca 12-14. Earlier this year we had a very special guest in our show – Face T from Canada.
Unfortunatly this is the last year of the MashUp Show. After more than 5 years of Soca plus X – podcast series it is time for something new. There will be a last 4h-best-of show on 30th (tba). Anyway we still will bring you fresh music at mashupcrew.org, doh worry!
