Girl Talk - Night Ripper

I recently got confused when I saw the name Girl Talk in regards to Hip-Hop related work. In my head, I thought Girl Talk was referring to the girl group of the 80s. So I kept skipping on it. That is until yesterday when I actually found out that Girl Talk is actually referring to DJ Gregg Gillis, who does mashups and is a music producer. So I decided to download the last album called "Night Ripper" from him. Man, I was surprised. He brings a whole bunch of stuff together in such a coherent manner that you completely rethink the concept of mashups. If you want to see what is sampled for each song, check out the Wiki page. Normally, I'm not a fan of mashups, but this was so different. I think this might be a hit or miss for you. But, I can't wait till his 2008 release of "Feed the Animals" to see what else he can do.

Hello, I absolutely love your blog :) Girl Talk is amazinggg, but just thought I'd tell you that there are 2 more songs on the album. #15 is called 'Overtime', and #16 is called 'Peak Out'. They're both great and you shouldn't go without them!

Hey, glad you caught onto Girl Talk. Catch a show if you can. I've seen him twice and it's a truly unique experience as long as you're not claustrophobic (big, sweaty, undulating crowd). His other albums are worth checking out to tide you over until April or May too: Unstoppable is similar to Night Ripper, and Secret Diary is good too, as long as you like glitchy stuff (and aren't expecting Night Ripper).
