Upcoming Mashup/Remix Artists: The ’86 Angels

I’ve been a fan of mashups for quite some time, I’ve even tried my hand at it but i admittedly suck at it so I won’t even try and pretend like i have a clue about how it’s done..just that it sounds damn good when it’s done right. Anyways, enough about me…Founders of The Octopus Hamstring, Tyler and Mike (Mike being the mastermind) have actually been working on a project called The 86 Angels which is currently on constant rotation on my ipod. It’s a fairly new project but they are already on Vol. 3 of their mashup/remix series and this recently released track has really shown progression from Volumes 1 and 2 (which are still great in their own rights). Mixing old school hip hop including Wu Tang, Notorious B.I.G, etc with bands like Converge excite me. It’s refreshing to hear this unique blend of varying musical genres with varying themes instead of the same old mashups with david guetta, kesha, rihanna, etc etc.

 “The ’86 Angels are Mike, Tyler and Phat B. Mike and Tyler are huge fans of Morrissey and the Smiths; Phat B is not. Tyler and Phat B can each grow impressive beards; Mike cannot. Mike and Phat B can name the entire starting lineup from the Angels’ 2002 World Series Championship team; Tyler cannot.” – Soundcloud Bio

And as their official site states “if you came here to dance, go somewhere else. this isn’t that kind of party.”….but the thing is..it IS that kind of party..and you can cry if you want to. I won’t tell. It’s just that damn good.

    Check out the piece that our friends over at Feel Good Playlists did on T86A over the weekend. This is an awesome site by the way; there’s always just enough obscure mixed in the familiar. My personal favorite I’d the “Indie Covers of Smiths Songs.” Go over there and give it a listen.
