Mixology master Gregg Gillis is like a DJ guardian angel of the pop spheres, beaming his remixes from some cloud where Fat Joe and Spacehog are partying down together for all eternity. In his latest album-length sound clash (released via free download on his Illegal Art website), he serves up Foxy Brown over Peter Gabriel, M.O.P. over Miley Cyrus, Big Boi over Portishead, even Ke$ha chanting "Police shut us down!" over a Grand Funk Railroad drum solo. But he always finds weird new emotional nuances in the samples — like when he lays B.o.B's taunting "Haterz Everywhere" over the warm, pretty piano outro from "Layla."

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
