Girl Talk, aka Greg Gillis, is a DJ/producer from Pennsylvania. His last album “Night Ripper” propelled him into the mainstream. His style is “mash-up,” but uses rock genres with hip-hop, which is different from most “mash-up” DJs. A rumor was that Kanye was stealing his style, but Kanye denied hearing of Girl Talk, even though they have opened up for West in the past.
Girl Talk has a new album coming out late spring/early summer this year and I’m sure you will hear more of him. “Smash Your Head” mashes a lot of your favorite tracks, especially known for his mixing of Biggie Smalls spitting over Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.”
Here is the video for “Smash Your Head.”
