Chess Without Sobriety (Wu-Tang & Eminem vs. Tanita Tikaram)
This one mixes the hard-core hip-hop of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan with some of the more goofballish stylings of Eminem with a dark 80s classic by Tanita Tikaram.
The juxtaposed tunes are, respectively, "Da Mystery of Chessboxing", "Without Me", and "Twist In My Sobriety". i also programmed and added some 'dancefloor' beats (i guess i was trying to be 'pop').
This received a mention on the personal blog of The Observer's chief leader writer. According to bastard-pop DJ Micky Maaaas, this one is quite popular in Germany, and still continues to get some worldwide shine.
Here's a little video i recently put together to accompany this track:
Peace & stay sober,
