This week, the focus is on the multi mashup; remixes that combine multiple artists together to create a single song. Usually the result is gimmicky because the creator tries to jam as many songs together as possible, but this week we have 3 tracks that are creative and actually sound good. The first selection comes from DJ Earworm, who has made a name for himself by putting out a compilation track of all the top 40 hits at the end of the year. That would be respectable enough – the fact that the result is as good as it is – well you’ll just have to listen for yourself.

Eminem ft. Rihanna vs. Lion King and 14 Friends – I love the way you mix
I’ll be honest, I was kind of skeptical about this one at first. But it won me over in the end because the Chiddy Bang part is too sick. Someone should make an extended mix of that part.
Matisyahu vs. John Lennon vs. Blink 182 vs. Bob Marley vs. Gentleman – Imagine One Day
Messing with the music of John Lennon and Bob Marley rarely works out. Their work is so highly revered its just hard to break even, let alone surpass the original performance. I found this one funny because I can see the Lennon, Marley, and Matisyahu comparison, but the Blink-182 part comes out of nowhere. If nothing else, it’s an interesting interpretation of some classics.
