“Best mashup artist out there.” – The Hidden Playlist
Emerging from the mashup scene that produced Girl Talk, The Hood Internet and others, New Hampshire’s Ethan Ward aka E-603 has been creating a nostalgic, yet original, blend of music made from samples since 2002.
Following the recent free download release of his third mash-up album SMOKESHOW (featuring the single “Bang Bang” which perfectly utilizes “We Got The Beat” by The Go-Go’s), Ward has released an album of remixes appropriately titled The Remixes Vol. 1, also available for free download HERE.
The album features E-603 takes on hits by Robyn, Miguel, Ellie Goulding and more, in addition to a remix of Passion Pit’s “Seaweed Song” which recently debuted at Earmilk and hit the Hype Machine remix charts. Another featured track from The Remixes Vol. 1 is the E-603 remix of Two Door Cinema Club’s “What You Know,” streaming HERE. This track will also appear on the next E-603 release, a live album scheduled to go up for free download on October 3rd.
With this upcoming live release, Ward is giving fans that have wanted a keepsake of the E-603 live experience exactly what they’ve asked for. Recorded live in NYC, the set sees E-603 going from one musical style to another, using the mixing and mashing techniques that have established him as a master of the genre.
Utilizing samples from as many as fifteen songs at once, and ultimately constructing some of the most elaborate electronic songs out there, E-603’s production style is more wholly musical than that of his peers. Often including his own instrumentation paired with his unprecedented, superfast cut and paste aesthetic, Ward’s signature style has helped his SMOKESHOW album to net more than 50,000 downloads in 2012.
E-603’s mashup album SMOKESHOW and remix album The Remixes Vol 1 are both available for free download now. E-603’s upcoming live album will be available on October 3rd. Ward has also been producing his own wholly original, non-sample-based music that varies in content from Daft Punk-style French House to Southern-style Trap Hip-Hop slammers.
