This is the piece I'm known for the most, mashing up the hits, one year after another. I start with the Billboard top 25 and also stir in a late-breaker and might add other shining stars that we're feeling that year.

When someone's taken everything from you, what do you do?
WORLD GO BOOM
I made some changes in the song selection process for 2011. In efforts to better reflect the year, I have a system that draws from the weekly charts from throughout 2011 that ensures that all the late-breaking hits (such as "We Found Love" & "Sexy and I Know It") are included in the 2011 mix.
Yet another installment in what has become an annual New Year's tradition. It's the United State of Pop, which mashes up the Top 25 songs of the year, according to Billboard magazine.
In 2010, pop has gone into serious all-out party mode. In 2009 the music was encouraging us to pick ourselves back up after being knocked down again, and to rock out to some great dance music while you're at it. This year's music tells us to keep going now that we're up and having fun. In fact, the fun seems to be in such overdrive that it borders on recklessness. Usher urges us to 'dance like it's the last night of your life", and Katy Perry wants us to "run away and don't ever look back". Even the songs that aren't about parties have parties in their videos, like this year's entries from Mike Posner and Lady Antebellum.
It's a great thing about music that you can leave your worries and lose yourself in the moment. In our current world of dance pop culture fantasy, this takes place at a club, where you can drink, meet the most amazing person you've ever met, and where as Ke$ha says, "the party don't stop".
Personally, as a DJ performing mostly at raging party-ish events, I can relate. My career path has been crazy lately, and I'm definitely not ready for the party to stop!
So with that in mind I urge you all please......
DON'T STOP THE POP
Another year, another year-end mashup, once again consisting of the top 25 most popular hit songs of 2009, according to Billboard Magazine.
This year in the charts, so many of the pop songs this year seem to tell the same story: Yeah, we've been through a lot, but right now we're gonna celebrate with music and dance, and it's gonna be ok. With that spirit in mind, I invite you to...BLAME IT ON THE POP
Well it's that time of the year again and I thought I'd do another year-end mashup. Here are bits of the Top 25 hits of the year, according to Billboard Magazine, arranged into a four and a half minute song. This is a follow-up to the first one, a mashup of the Top 25 hits of 2007.
This year in the charts, we've gone all soft. The songs are sexy and defiant, less macho than in previous years. Accordingly, I've selected Coldplay as the instrumental track, giving the whole year a sort of symphonic feel.
