You Know What Girl Talk Can Do But Have You Heard What E-603 Can Do?

With the explosion of Girl Talk's popularity, you knew it was only a matter of time before other artists would start attempting to create mash ups on his unprecedented level. E-603 comes into the conversation because he is the first artist on our radar from the post Girl Talk mash up genre. Haters will probably say this is the same as Girl Talk, but this kid is taking that game to the next level. E-603, who's real name is Ethan Ward, hails from New Hampshire and has been touring for awhile now. He has toured with the likes of such taste makers as The Hood Internet, The Cool Kids and Yo La Tengo. He is currently on tour with Passion Pit (what a sweet tour that is).

When it comes to samples, you can't help but be impressed by an artist's ability to take someone else's art and make it their own. Part of the fun with this form of mash-up is seeing how many of the samples you can recognize on each one of his sonic collages. If you need some help there is a Wikipedia article listing the samples and how long it appears for on each track.

If you are interested in checking out the entire album, you can grab it here. Come on, you can't help but smile when you hear Dre and Snoop spitting on top of Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" :)
