Today I am in the mood for a little Dire Straits. First up is a Swingin' Sultan sandwich - with instrumentals for the bread, and a down-tempo acapella for the filler. To wash it down I have a two-course desert!
Let's kick it off with the Mashup Master known as Go Home Productions (Mark Vidler). The man is amazing. Check out his download's page if you have a day or two to spare (and a mind left to be blown!) He definitely is one of the best. Not only does he do great audio mashups, but he is just as good with the videos. Add an abundance of talent for performing and producing music on his own, and your looking at the ideal recipe for perfection in the art of The Mashup.

The filler for this little "mashwich" is an interesting down-tempo mash from COTXETXE (don't ask me how to say his name!) I've been listening to this one for a bit now and still haven't decided if I like it, lol! It is interesting, to say the least. And original! Since he couldn't be bothered to come up with a name for his match, I did it for him ;-)

Completing our tasty Sultan Sandwich is this sweet little morsel from Martinn Bootlegs. I just can't get enough of Fleetwood Mashed!

The first part of the "desert" is DJ Moule's rocking Straits mashup "Money For The Queen".

Saving (what may be) the best for last, here is a masterpiece from Fissunix. I've been listening to this amazing song for awhile now, and I continue to love it more and more. Speaking only for myself, I have to say that this one really grows on you.
