Thoughts, process, and other ramblings.


Tik Tok California Gurl$

A few years back I put together a mashup of two of the summers hottest jams, Tik Tok by Ke$ha and California Gurls by Katy Perry. It wasn't an entirely original idea; at the time there were articles floating around comparing the two songs, and a couple other artists had put together their own versions (many of which seem to no longer be online), but they all kind of felt like they were trying to prove a point, rather than having fun and making a great mashup.

So I put on my audio-editors hat and made my own version and posted it to Tumblr. The response was pretty crazy, and all these years later it's received over 175,000 plays. That's nutty! It was even played by the mashup centred Bootie Club, which was a pretty big honour.

I eventually put together a couple different mixes, and threw the whole thing up for free on Tumblr. That post is still live, but seeing as the weather is getting nicer again reminding us that summer is just around the corner I thought it's high time we put on our daisy dukes again, grab a bottle of jack, and revisit this old favourite.
