16 drops in 54 seconds: Swedish duo’s Beatport 100 mash-up goes viral
Head to Swedish duo Daleri’s Soundcloud right now and you’ll find a handful of original tunes and remixes up for streaming. With about 2,400 followers to their name and a Facebook-official inception date of November 2011, the pair are still in their early days yet. There is one Daleri production, however, that’s been getting some serious heat. In the 14 days it’s been live, the Swedes’ Epic Mashleg has racked up over 100,000 plays and won praise on Twitter from big names like Zedd, Madeon, Kaskade, Tiesto and Sebastian Ingrosso.
Epic Mashleg isn’t exactly a radio-ready banger, though. Rather, it’s a tongue-in-cheek poke at the Beatport Top 100 – Daleri have taken drops from 16 songs in the famously big-room heavy chart and crammed them into 54 seconds. The point? To highlight just how dead similar they all sound. “We are glad you are laughing,” the pair tweeted at their new fan Tiesto. “But at the same time, there is something serious in this mix.” Included in their mash-up are cuts from the likes of Hardwell, Chuckie, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and W&W – listen and laugh below.
Meanwhile in the Beatport Top 100, young gun Martin Garrix is sitting pretty in the #1 spot for the fourth week running with his hit Animals. At all of 17, Garrix became the youngest producer to ever top the chart alone when he released the single last month – and to his credit, he’s been spared in the Epic Mashleg.
