FROM DJ PAUL V.
This week I bow down to one of my idols, David Bowie. The Thin White Duke turned [gulp] 60 this week, and I’ve wanted to feature this mashup for ages, so it’s perfect. LA’s own Arbiters mix Bowie’s ‘Fame’ and Lou Reed‘s ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ (which Bowie co-produced) with some hip-hop flava from Notorious BIG, Tupac, and others. It’s nice ‘n smooth but streetwise, too.
† listen to The Arbiters – ‘Sure Side Of Fame’ (.mp3 10.7mb) †
Enjoy! – DJ Paul V.
