Jay-Z + Radiohead = Jaydiohead (Mixtape)

In the tradition of Dangermouse’s Grey Album, Jaydiohead is a mixtape by Minty Fresh Beats consisting of Radiohead beats with Jay-Z acapellas. There is a lot of junk in the mashup world, but a whole carload of friends last night (including a former Amoeba Music employee) agreed that this was well executed and worth listening to. In particular I like “Wrong Prayer,” “99 Anthems,” and “Optimistic Moment.” Minty Fresh doesn’t just stick to hits, and goes deep for breaks mining b-side gems like the whimsical ‘Gagging Order’ (my girlfriend’s favorite Radiohead song) on “Change Order.”  Go snag it over at URB Magazine.
