Get your mix on… DJ Hero unveils all of its 93 Mash-Ups

on October 08, 2009, 10:05am

Remember that time, back in your parent’s basement with their two turntables. You are sitting there looking at this deck as you pull two glorious black vinyls out of a case. Placing them carefully on the turntables, you pick up your earphones and a sudden urge to scratch overcomes you. Don’t worry it happens to us all.

Or if that scenario never happened (which applies to most of you), have no fret as you can be a DJ without the need for vinyl, a turntable or anything. That’s right; technology has once again gone where no one has dared.

As previously reported, DJ Hero is the latest from Activision, makers of Guitar Hero, and it is set to hit stores and your game consoles on October 27th. Featuring Daft Punk and some exclusive mixes, we were already pumped. Looking at the newly unveiled 93 (yes nearly 100) mash ups, and we are even more pumped than ever.

Where to start? I mean you have Afrika Bambaata vs. Freedom Express, Beastie Boys vs. Blondie, Daft Punk vs. Queen, Vanilla Ice vs. MC Hammer, Black Eyed Peas vs. Benny Benassi. That’s not including all the other exclusive remixes from Daft Punk, Grandmaster Flash, the late DJ AM, DJ Shadow and DJ Jazzy Jeff.  Yeah, even Girl Talk is jealous about this one.
