Girl Talk is coming to Indy in a few weeks.   He’s the mash-up artist.   There are plenty of other mash-up DJ’s out there, but none with the commercial success of Girl Talk.  He uses dozens of shorter samples in his songs rather than mashing up 4 or 5 songs per track.  For example, listen to What It’s All About and see if you can pick out

some of the songs.  36 different songs are mashed together to one awesome track.  Here’s the tracklist:

I saw him in Bonnaroo, but stayed out of the fray for the most part.  It was 2:30am and I was a walking zombie after a full day of watching shows.   The stage and crowd was packed with thousands of dancing, jumping, screaming, absolutely manic fans swarmed around a single guy standing behind a table and a laptop.   Girl talk is literally him and his laptop.   There were so many fans on the stage that at one point somebody unplugged the audio input to his laptop for  few seconds.  It looked like a fantastic time and I definitely wished I had the energy to pull it off.  Now I get a second shot.  Yea!

The show is going to be like this.  Yes!  Buy tix!

A few delicious tracks:

Girl Talk – Bounce That
