DJ Bahler is a mash-up DJ from Los Angeles who recently released a mixtape called Mashin’ Pit, which features our favorite band’s repertoire spliced with some of the more recognizable jams in recent memory. While it is entirely possible (and, in my opinion, likely) that DJ Bahler came up with the name of the mix and then put music to it, the results are nonetheless intriguing. Highlights include “Mum Mum Mum Moth,” which deftly balances Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” with “Moth’s Wings,” tied together with the vocals from Lady GaGa’s “Poker Face.” Also worth listening to is “Potholes on Easy Street” which samples, among other things, Kanye’s “Touch the Sky,” Yelle’s “Ce Jeu,” and, of course, Passion Pit’s “Tons of Guns.” Grab the whole mixtape here, and the aforementioned favorites below. You may not love them, but honestly, I can’t get enough of anything that even remotely involves Passion Pit.
