MUSIC: Mario Dirty Mix

Click me for live mario goodness!

Eet's a-me! Mario! Well, Binst really. But this page is concerning the ubiquitus plumbulator. Let's take a journey...

A journey back in time, way back to April of 2002. A Scholar, A Physican, A RichBRF, A Nervous Testpilot and A I got together and decided to embark upon a Chinese Remix - mix a song, pass it along, chinese whispers with beats basically. The tune we decided to mangle was Super Mario Brothers' main piece.

So just how does one make a chinese remix? Well, for a start one cannot. But more than one can. And thus the meeting of minds was called together. The tune began life with Rich - who parped a little bit of big brass band sounds into the original theme. Then messrs Scholar and Physician got their hands on it - one providing "wild, wild beats" (quote unquote DJ Pretzel) and one providing sample magic and, uh, small boy natter. This was passed on to yours truly, who added some parsley style sprigs of sample magic (and the middle electro breakdown). This formed the basis of the Dirty Mix - the one you may have heard before.

Nervous Testpilot likes to destroy things. Destroy them in intricate aural ways. And this is what he did to the mix. To have a listen to this, go to his homepage at

Anyway, the Dirty Mix was sent off to DJ Pretzel, he put it up online and it was well received. Then, a while after all this, it became known to us (the remixers) that a feller called Mortis had made a flash movie using the Dirty Mix as the basis. The fruits of his labour were The Super Mario Blitz. This was, at the start of February, sent to, a big depository of flash movies and stuff. Since then, the movie was viewed by 180,000 and reviewed by around 700 people. Which was a bit of a surprise.

And if you want to see what it looks like when it's done live, then check out the following link.
