All Champions Do Is Win

When I started mashing up music, I’d never have imagined I’d one day be making music for the Olympics or performing there. Yet early in 2012, I was asked to make a series of short mixes to be played at the various Olympic venues during the London Summer Games. I also had a chance to perform live at several events there as well.

The “Victory Mix” is the first of many in a series titled “Music for Sport”.

Part 1: “Don’t Stop Feeling Good”

  • Arnaud – Bugler’s Dream
  • Flo Rida – Good Feeling
  • Etta James – Something’s Got a Hold on Me
  • Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
  • Pitbull/Neyo – Give Me Everything
  • Taio Cruz – Dynamite
  • Survivor – Eye of the Tiger

Part 2: “Gold”

  • Spandau Ballet – Gold
  • The Wanted – Gold Forever

Part 3: “All Champions Do Is Win”

  • Queen – We Are the Champions
  • DJ Khaled ft. Ludacris, T-Pain, Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg – All I Do Is Win
  • Rare Earth – I Just Want to Celebrate

    I’ve made some changes in the song selection process this year.
    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.

    United State of Pop 2010 (Don't Stop the Pop)

    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

    • Ke$ha – Tik Tok
    • Lady Antebellum – Need You Now
    • Train – Hey, Soul Sister
    • Katy Perry Featuring Snoop Dogg – California Gurls
    • Usher Featuring will.i.am – OMG
    • B.O.B. Featuring Hayley Williams – Airplanes
    • Eminem Featuring Rihanna – Love the Way You Lie
    • Lady Gaga – Bad Romance
    • Taio Cruz – Dynamite
    • Taio Cruz Featuring Ludacris – Break Your Heart
    • B.O.B. Featuring Bruno Mars – Nothin’ On You
    • Enrique Iglesias Featuring Pitbull – I Like It
    • Young Money Featuring Lloyd – Bedrock
    • Jason Derulo – In My Head
    • Rihanna – Rude Boy
    • Lady Gaga Featuring Beyonce – Telephone
    • Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
    • Bruno Mars – Just the Way You Are
    • Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me
    • The Black Eyed Peas – Imma Be
    • Jay-Z + Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind
    • Usher Featuring Pitbull – DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love
    • Travie McCoy Featuring Bruno Mars – Billionaire

    Nelly Furtado - Free At Night

    It’s great when I get to do a mash up for an artist, because it allows me to really dig deep into a single act and really see what makes them tick. Nelly Furtado has gone through many transformations throughout her career, but she’s maintained a spirit of independence and freedom throughout. That’s what I wanted to highlight in “Free at Night”, a mashup which features 13 hits from her latest album “The Best of Nelly Furtado”.
    • I’m Like A Bird
    • Turn Off the Light
    • Powerless (Say What You Want)
    • Try
    • Força
    • Promiscuous
    • Maneater
    • Say It Right
    • All Good Things (Come to an End)
    • Girlfriend in the City
    • Night Is Young
    • Stars
    • Manos al Aire
