A specially curated, new mash-up of DJ Shadow’s I Gotta Rokk track has been released for free download by London turntablist surgeon STEREO:TYPE and IRN MNKY today.

Commissioned alongside six other incredible artists by Xfm’s Eddy Temple-Morris, STEREO:TYPE was invited to create a new mix using the former UNKLE members’ tracks, in a tribute to his career in music.

The new mash-up was aired on the Xfm Remix Show on Friday and blends classic samples from Guns & Roses, The Prodigy and Led Zeppelin cut into DJ Shadow’s beats.

Eddy Temple Morris said: “The reason I asked STEREO:TYPE for this DJ Shadow mix was simple. STEREO:TYPE was the author of, without a word of exaggeration, the best mix anyone has ever done for The Remix show in my near 13 year tenure at Xfm. My approaching Chris STEREO:TYPE came with DJ Shadow’s blessing too, and the man himself acknowledged Chris as a kindred spirit and sonic perfectionist.”

Both Eddy and STEREO:TYPE will captain the decks of the Battersea Barge for this year’s Crossfire Halloween Massacre on Saturday October 27th following a skateboard jam with guest pro skaters at the brand new BaySixty6 skate park during the day.

Infamous for promoting London’s most raucous Halloween parties, Crossfire will roll out a nautical themed boat party on the to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic’s fatal destiny.

The static vessel will host special guest DJs Eddy Temple Morris (XFM Remix show), STEREO:TYPE, Sweet Dreams, Johnny Doom & Matt Stocks, Talita Two Shoes, the Crossfire Sound System and Phoebe Winter on the decks.

Expect a serious mash-up of Hip Hop, Bass, Dubstep, Drum&Bass, Classic Rock and party classics from 8pm until late.

Fancy dress is optional but this event is famous for guests dressing up to the nines. Ahoy! All aboard! Zombie sea-farers, mermaids and pirates.
