Party down Vol. 1 is a mixtape full of wavy music that’s ready to take you to far away places. It’s taken me a while to put together this mixtape because for me it was a search to find the songs that I felt best mixed together without losing the format of the mixtape. Shoutouts to Mostly Junkfood for presenting the mixtape, BauceSauce for providing the intros and outros, and also Portland artist Gage Hamilton for the amazing cover art.

XXYYXX made an incredible track with “About You.” I thought I’d put my own little spin on it with the help of some added drums and a couple of 2 Chainz verses.

Here is a low energy, high chill, r & b, indie, hip hop mashup. I heard the Mansions on the Moon new EP and I knew that I needed to mess around with their music. I love the sounds that are coming this band. So I took their song “Athens” screwed way down to create a nice ambient tune. After adding some vocals from INOJ, J. Cole, and Coldplay the track started to come together quite nicely. Phantogram and Kal Ho Naa Ho add some nice drums to give the track the beat to carry it through.

Here is a nice, slow, r & b, indie, hip hop mashup. There are some very nice smooth vibes on this track. I heard the RAC remix of Washed out and knew that I had to do something with it. So instead of speeding it up making it all dancey and stuff, I decided to screw it way down in pitch and tempo. This created a nice ambient feel to the instrumental. Check it out below….

DJ Bahler (http://www.facebook.com/DJBAHLER) asked his fellow mashup artists and DJs to recreate/remash some of his tracks. When I heard of this, I jumped at the opportunity as I am a fan of Bahler’s work. Bahler premiered this track on 12/7/2011 during the inaugural Mashtival on turntable.fm. Make sure to check out his original version of “Swimming in Solace” HERE!
