Rush Classic Gets Milkshake Mashup (Week in Review)


Rush Classic Gets Milkshake Mashup was a Top 3 story on Thursday: (Prog) Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the Internet, a web prankster working under the name of DJ Cummerbund has released a mash-up of Rush's classic instrumental YYZ with R&B star Kelis's 2003 chart smash Milkshake, seamlesslymatching the vocal from her 113 BPM original to Rush's 140 BPM soundbed.

Cummerbund claims to have spent "over two hours" working on the project, and while it all starts a little shakily, by the time the chorus kicks in at the 45-second mark we're frankly in awe of his ambition and technique.

Further excitement on this giddy ride is provided by the inclusion of a sample from Macho Man Randy Savage & DJ Kool's 2003 joint Hit The Floor. Check it out - here.
