Producer / remix master extraordinaire Eric Frederic, he of the Das Racist “Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell” remix fame and the hot new Wallpaper. concept album ‘Doodoo Face’, is back with a new series of jams entitled “SiSTRS from different MiSTERS” with a new remix being released every two weeks. Debuting exclusively at Stereogum last week, Wallpaper.‘s mindblowing mash up of Fool’s Gold + Mariah Carey “seamlessly substitutes Mariah Carey’s “Emotions” melisma for Luke Top and Lewis Pesacov’s Hebrew-and-horns incantations.” Death + Taxes Magazine called the mashup, “Mashup of the Century.”
What was Eric Frederic thinking?
“When I first heard “Surprise Hotel,” I felt all these little thought bubbles effervescing in my brain. There is a lot to take in, on a musical level. The original vocal coats this exuberant track with a calm, peaceful beauty. So I started combing the universe for a vocal that seemed as wilin’ out as those guitar parts and roughly the same tempo and / or key. Turns out Mariah Carey’s “Emotions” is already in the exact same key (the relative minor) and dances atop the rhythm section like it was born to. This is the first segment of SiSTRS from different MiSTRS.”
Also watch for Wallpaper’s video debut for second album single “Gettin’ Drip” to hit this week. For those of you in SF, mark your calendar for Friday Nov 27 when Wallpaper rip up Regency Ballroom with Amanda Blank and Peaches!
