A specially curated, new mash up of DJ Shadow’s ‘I Gotta Rokk’ track has been released for free download by London turntablist surgeon Stereo:Type and Irn Mnky today.
Commissioned alongside six other incredible artists by Xfm’s Eddy Temple-Morris, Stereo:Type was invited to create a new mix using the former UNKLE member’s tracks, in a tribute to his career in music. The new mash-up was aired on the Xfm Remix Show last Friday and blends classic samples from Guns & Roses, The Prodigy and Led Zeppelin cut into DJ Shadow’s beats.
“The reason I asked Stereo:Type for this DJ Shadow mix was simple.” Eddy Temple-Morris explains. “Stereo:Type was the author of, without a word of exaggeration, the best mix anyone has ever done for The Remix show in my near 13 year tenure at Xfm. My approaching Chris Stereo:Type came with DJ Shadow’s blessing too, and the man himself acknowledged Chris as a kindred spirit and sonic perfectionist.”
Both Eddy and Stereo:Type will headline the decks of the Battersea Barge for this year’s Crossfire Halloween Massacre on Saturday October 27 following a skateboard jam with guest pro skaters at the brand new BaySixty6 skate park during the day. Infamous for promoting London’s most raucous Halloween parties, Crossfire will roll out a nautical themed boat party on the to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic’s fatal destiny.
The static vessel will host special guest DJs Eddy Temple-Morris, Stereo:Type, Sweet Dreams, Johnny Doom & Matt Stocks, Talita Two Shoes, the Crossfire Sound System and Phoebe Winter on the decks.
Expect a serious mash up of hip hop, bass, dubstep, drum‘n’bass, classic rock and party classics from 8pm until late. Fancy dress is optional.
