(Every Duel I’m Shufflin’)

Shuffle Dueling is a fun thing we do here at The Least Pretentious Music Blog Ever. The rules are simple: two of our writers sit down with their ipods or mp3 players on shuffle. They then write down the first five songs that come up on shuffle (skipping audio books, stand up comedy, sounds clips, etc). Then people vote on who has made the best random five-song playlist. After a while, the results will be be locked and the winner goes on to round two where they face a new opponent. Win and loss records will be created over time. Now that you know the rules…IT’S ON!!!

Who has won the duel? who will proceed to the second round?


If you somehow haven’t caught onto the wonder that is YouTube  mashups, you are seriously missing out on one of the most amusing thing that has ever existed. Based on the millions of mashups that float around the internet these days, I’ve taken a disturbing amount of my spare time to find my five favorite mashups that left me going, “-the fuck was that?” And if you can somehow avoid leaving them on repeat for the next three days, you are a stronger human than I.

1. NOFX vs. Tupac

Probably the single most unexpected mashups I’ve found. From the quality YouTube posting of mattydub1. Hold your comments till 00:49 when Tupac comes in. If you have ever been a fan of punk rock and/or gangsta rap, you must hear this.

2. Mos Def vs. Desmond Dekker

Uploaded by mintyfreshbeats, straight off the  Mos Dub album by Max Tannone (available here), this pro quality mashup has changed my life–or at least inspired me to support the people of Growlife Alliances.

3. Marvin Gaye vs. The Pixies

If you’re anything like me, after listening to Where Is My Mind, watching Fight Club again, then listening the Bassnectar remix for about the last three months, then you probably thought you were sick of this song. But then, the universe had other plans for us. This song is 100% guaranteed to seduce anybody who has tattoos. I mean, maybe. Whatever, just listen. Thank you uploader for getting me laid.

4. UB40 vs. T-Pain

Reggae remixes are officially my summertime continuation of searching for dubstep remixes for the last four or five months. There’s actually a wealth of reggae remixes already in existence, but for the purposes of consistency, this is technically a mashup. I mean, I’ve never ordered red wine in da club, but if I did it would go something like this. Uploaded by . Don’t worry, I don’t know what the cars in the video are about either.

5. Nesian Mystiks vs. Jason Derulo vs. Train vs. Tupac

Catchy as fuck. It’s summer. Relax. ‘Bout all I have to say. Thank the walking savant Dj Esi (facebook here), uploaded to YouTube by . Enjoy your life.

Hope you enjoyed, we will probably keep doing these. The following link is to piss off our other writer, and my dear friend Darion. Coming next week, reggae remixes, maybe.
