THE KLEPTONES - "A Night at the Hip Hopera" Mashups 2004

As promised last week, more mashups for y'all. It gets no better than this...

God bless Mr. Eric Kleptone. I don't know how the hell he does what he does, but I'm sure as hell glad he does it. In 2004, he took his deep knowledge and love of Queen, threw it in a blender with about 10,000 samples and beats of all shapes, sizes and sounds...and created his masterpiece, the single greatest, most cohesive statement of mashup culture ever, and for all time.

And it's fun as hell to listen to, all 78:18 of it! (Fits on one CD too, every last Galileo, Figaro, Scaramouche and Bismillah.) That's what I call some killer Queen...

Also check out the Kleptones blog Hectic City, where you will find "Bo Rhap," Eric's berserk, moving, hilarious and altogether astonishing "Bohemian Rhapsody" mashup (done a year before the Flaming Lips covered it on tour): DOWNLOAD.
