the King is back!
after 18 month of silence here is GHP’s new virtual AA Single
as Mark describes: – I call these particular mixes “Flipsides”, where the 2 songs that I’ve bastardised have their roles reversed. In this case Phil Lynott handles the vocals on the A side – Christina does the vocal on the AA side with the backing tracks swapping in the same manner. -

Looking back at the noughties, The Guardian’s Dorian Lynskey examines how a mashup (A Stroke of Genius by Freelance Hellraiser) that never got a legitimate release prefigured all the significant pop trends of the decade.
We can’t agree more, call it as you want: bootleg, bastard pop, cut and paste music, mashup, unofficial remixes; but the IY remix culture was the most important thing in the first decade of the new millenium. Freelance Hellraiser’s mashup is one of the shinniest diamonds of our scene, inspired many many producers to start to make mashups like this and even ater all these years it sounds fresh and brill.
Like Dorian says: – Looking back, it feels like digital music was the genie in the bottle and, now that it’s been let out, nobody can put it back in. -
Make sure to read the full article on The Guardian and turn the choon LOUD to celebrate our loved MASHUP CULTURE.
Big up to all the mashup DJ’s and producers out there, APC <3 U!!
