Analog Vinyl Sampling from Ishac Bertran on Vimeo.

As a fan of mash-ups (and to you music purists I say, haters gonna hate), I found this music experiment by Ishac Bertran pretty fascinating.

With some freshly purchased “second-hand vinyl records [of] different music styles: Supertramp, Wagner, Paul Anka, Chicago, Lil Jon,” a hot wire cutter, and a bit of dexterity and ingenuity, Bertran constructed a mash-up vinyl record Frankenstein’d together with other vinyls. You can hear the result for yourself in his video (above).

The Internet’s current favorite pop culture viral mash-up blends the old with the new: the infectious pop of Ke$ha’s Tik Tok is set to scenes from the classic Star Trek television series. As the creator MissSheenie aptly says, “Working on the Enterprise is pretty much a non-stop party as far as I’m concerned.” In related…
