I discovered Party Ben’s work a few years ago when a mash-up of Alphaville’s “Big In Japan” and Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” came my way, but as it was an uncredited audio file with no information, I had no idea where it came from. (as it turns out, he calls it “Crazy In Japan”).
Recently I found Party Ben’s website (partyben.com) and while looking around, I found that he was the one who did the mash-up. Unfortunately his site no longer makes this song available, which is a shame, because it’s incredible.
Fortunately, he’s done a ton of other stuff too. My current favorite is his mash-up of General Public’s “Tenderness” with Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” It’s still available for download – go get it. And take a look around, he’s got a ton of other stuff available – The Police, Eminem, Snow Patrol, Chemical Brothers, Green Day, Travis… and that’s just from the first few tracks available for download. Go find your new favorite.
