On the regular most bloggers shy away from mash ups … so why the hell do they still pop up from time to time ?!! ….easy, cause there might be a small change a mash up could turn out great. In this case Wick – It The Instigator did a “sick” job. Fusing The Black Keys “Brothers” with Big Boi’s “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” could not have been an easy task as both genres seem to be from different planets. But since both albums where previously mentioned on the Strangefruitmusicblog y’all know some coolness was involved.

Anyways my favorite mashed up track is “Black Bug” simply because it ingeniously morphes two of my favorites “Tighten Up” and “Shutterbug” into something you’d still nod your head to. To download click here.

For the tracklist, the snippets and to purchase go to Itunes .

If you visit the strangefruitmusicblog frequently you are probably already used to our out of the box approach to music.  Our approach is very simple if it sounds cool we let you know about it. As a result thereof there’s something on this blog for everyone. Bluesrock however is a new genre for us but the Black Keys sound so cool they should be mentioned. Their Jimmy Hendrix-White Stripes-like sound is so authentic that almost every track on their new album sounds kinda old.

The Black Keys are an American blues-rock music duo consisting of vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer/producer Patrick Carney. They were formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. Their whole impressive resume is available on wikipedia. That leaves me with the one thing I really like to share with ya’ll….the musicvideo to their track Tighten Up….
