Mixin’ it up: Bird Peterson

Jan 26 2007

This week’s Mixin’ it up comes from the reigning remix/edit king of the Fathertronix forum, we don’t know how he finds the time to keep on putting all these jams out there but we don’t care as long as he keeps us dancing. Discobelle presents: Bird Peterson.

“Hey team! The idea behind this mix was to remind everyone that jams are as hot as you can make them, and sweet crap, are these jams hot! I’ve been producing and DJing for about a decade or so now (thanks to Dr. Knuckstable and some other dudes), so I got a great ear for jamage. I started out with hip hop, then went to breakbeat, then got REALLY thick into jungle, and then back into all three with a big chunk of electro. I never had a Serato so I rarely got to spin my own tracks, remixes, and edits. But the second I got access to one, I began to really edit all the tracks I could so that mixes would be flawless. When you have the chance to drop a mix the EXACT way you want, you gotta take it. So enjoy this audible essay on the workings of twurking. Holler at your myspace!”

TRACKLIST:

My Morning Jacket – Wordless Chorus
Saw these dudes live a long while back, still one of my favorite shows, and this tune is the jam.

Grandmaster Flash – The Message
Nelly Furtado – Promiscuous Girl
I thought it was really bad ass how good these two tracks sounded together. The Message is the BOMBADA!

Daft Punk – Da Funk
Come on. Still the jam.

Spank Rock – Chilly Will (Bird Peterson Remix)
I like this song a lot. Probably my favorite Spankro joint, and it was REALLY nice for them to let people work with the acapellas.

Queen Featuring David Bowie – Under Pressure
THE JAM!

Mint Royale – Show Me (Crazy Penis Remix)
Mint Royale is a really great act, and Crazy Penis are REALLY good remixers.

LL Cool J – Mama Said Knock You Out
Ludacris – Get Back
When i first heard Get Back, I thought about how it seemed like the new class version of Mama Said Knock You Out. Both tracks are fantastic.

J Geils Band – Centerfold
Yes.

Tittsworth – Sardines
Titts is a great producer and this track always gets the crowds hoppin.

Deejay Punk Roc – Far Out
This is probably my favorite electro track ever. Hands down. Deejay Punk Roc.

Ludacris – Splash Waterfalls
Another Luda track? Yes. Dance.

Thomas Schumacher – Kickschool 79
This song is one of my favorites of the past year or so. Really good synths.

Big Country – In A Big Country (Bird Peterson Bmix)
I’m glad this remix I did is getting some good play, I really like this original a lot.

Wolf Parade – I’ll Believe In Anything (Bird Peterson Remix)
Great band.

Fatboy Slim – Sho Nuff
When I first heard this track on Action, my knees locked and i had to sit down. And then i stood up and danced until my knees locked agian from dehydration. So then i got a Powerade.

Lil Scrappy – Money In The Bank (Bird Peterson Super Mixtendo)
I caught this track one night on BET and it has stayed in rotation since.

Conquering Lion – Code Red (94 Remix)
So i heard this track back in 99 on a tape, lost the tape, never knew the name, and so i never found it again. So i’m over on GoldenEraJungle.com and i ask about a track that says “I want the remix! 94 remix!” And BAM! They found it for me. BEST SITE EVER.

Top Cat – Bunn The Sensi
Ayres turned me on to the original of this track, super good times.

DJ Red – Mad PLO
Same story as the 94 remix. BEST SITE EVER!

DJ Zinc – Reach Out
Again, same story as 94 and Top Cat. BEST SITE EVER!

Lil Wayne Featuring Birdman – Stuntin Like My Daddy
I made this mix a ways before the Drama and Cannon shit started happening. Lil Wayne, you disgust me. FREE DRAMA AND CANNON!

Iron & Wine – Sunset Soon Forgotten

MIA – Galang
I made this mix as a joke for my friend Elliot. Then i spun it at a club and it went off hard, so HA!

Sebastian – HAL
Sebastian does it, man. Keep up with him.

Devin The Dude – Cooter Brown
I’ve been listening to Devin for so damn long, I’m really glad he’s still at the top of his game. Nobody can fuck with Devin.

Feist – Mushaboom (K-os Remix)
Feist is a great singer. And she’s hot.

Purple Ribbon All-Stars – Body Rock (Bird Pete’s Space Travel Redo)
PURP! This is one of my favorite remixes I’ve done.
