DJ Mega-Mix vols. 1-4

Years before mash-ups, there were DJ cut ups. Double Dee & Steinski and Coldcut, of course, are well known. But also there was the DJ Mega-Mix series of one-sided twelves – seven minutes of cool beats cut up with whatever was laying to hand, it seemed. And remarkably, the first release was actually the dance music debut of Norman (Fatboy Slim) Cook, at the time still just the bass player with the very indiepop Housemartins.

The Osmonds – One Bad Apple (Norman Cook Remix)

12″ promo, Polydor, 1996

Semi-legendary mash-up reworking of the Osmonds’ Jackson 5-alike pop classic by the man who was not yet Fatboy Slim. Watch out for “Oops Upside Your Head” and a guest appearance by Scooby-Doo. Stefan only bought this in a Virgin Megastore back in the day, as a sealed and information-free twelve (just that Donny stamp), cos it was stuffed in the Coco Steel & Lovebomb section – presumably the staff there thought it was a promo of their “Crucifixion of Donny” EP (watch out for that one some day too).

The b-sides are the regular versions, but we ripped them for completeness. Geeks. Meanwhile, who’d have thought the epic metal freakout that was and indeed is “Crazy Horses” was only 2:32 long?

A. One Bad Apple (Norman Cook Remix) (5:53)
B1. One Bad Apple (2:46)
B2. Crazy Horses (2:32)
