“Arctic Low” – American Panda vs. Flo Rida vs. Arrison Kirby

I’m not entirely sure why I put these things together.  I LOVE the original American Panda track, “Panda Travels to the Center of the Arctic Circle.”  As for Flo Rida’s dance classic, “Low,” well I just can’t believe that song is over four minutes long.  Ridiculous.

But hey!  The Panda song is actually longer, albeit less grating for sure.  I sped it up as a result, matching it to the vocal speed, rather than the vocal speed to it.  That kinda wrecks the magical feel that “Arctic Circle” essentially has, replacing it with whatever this is.

“Volare” – Dean Martin vs. Arrison Kirby

This is not a dance remix.  It’s ambient and soft.  Reverb and bells.  I put this together specifically for a show at the now defunct Patrick Sullivan’s in Knoxville, TN.  It was right around the time when Part 3 was released and I was experimenting with some sort of live performance / DJ set hybrid.  Holly Denman live painted on the stage.  The Andy Show and The Weekends also performed.

Anyway.  I was going for something that, if played loudly to a room full of people, might give the effect of being in a bubble or a tunnel or something.  Something drifty.  I don’t know how well it went over at the show, but I think it stands alone just fine.

 

 

“Happiness (remix)” – Arrison Kirby vs. The Mattoid

I am so incredibly glad to be making videos again.  It has literally been years.

So this one is for an instrumental remix I did for a song by The Mattoid.  If you don’t know the Mattoid, you are doing yourself an immense disservice and should check out his Myspace page as soon as you watch this video.  Also, if you’d like to check out the original, be my guest.  It’s on his Eternifinity EP.

The structure may also be familiar to some from my days with Flashmob, as we used this beat for the song, Dirtnap.

Anyway.  The dog and cat are mine.  The dog being Remy…the cat being Quinn.  More videos to come, I do hope.

“Wanksta (Arrison Kirby Remix)” – 50 Cent vs. Arrison Kirby

I made this video a few years back and the song years before that.  It’s been on YouTube for a while, slowly gaining viewers without quite cracking that viral threshold.

Obviously, the whole thing revolves around 50 Cent and j-pop mashed together.  In particular, schoolgirl pop, Morning Musume.  This holds predominantly true for the video.  The song, in addition to containing Morning Musume and Shiina Ringo samples, additionally borrows from Weezer and Wilco covering Steely Dan.

My favorite thing about this video is that Universal Music saw it and had deliberations as to whether or not it would be taken down.  In the end, they let me keep it up.  Thanks, Universal Music!

If you’d like the track by itself to put on your ipod or whatever, here you go…

“Inklings (Two Missing B’s and a Microphone)” – Senryu vs. Arrison Kirby vs. Beck

“Inklings” was the first song from the new Senryu album to REALLY hit me.  It did the first time I heard it and the effects lasted a good deal beyond that time.

Its BPM is just a little bit faster than that of some bonus beats from Beck’s “Where It’s At” session.  So I slowed down Beck and stuck the two together.  After a little bit of tweaking, editing and remastering,  the result is a “clubbier” version of “Inklings.”

I think there is something psychic intertwining these two pieces of music intrinsically.  The imposition of one over the other is nearly dead on as the course of each song changes.  Perhaps it’s merely a fanciful, random intermingling of sounds in time with each other, but I think there is something more veiled and godlike at play.
