Lisandro Sona suffers from Dissociative Personality Disorder. At least that’s my diagnosis. We all know him as one half of the restlessly creative Frikstailers (of Zizek Collective), but on the side he keeps changing costumes (and fluorescent wigs) in order to satisfy his heterogenous curiosity and possibly disconcert us.
Sometimes he’s part of Sonidero Cordobestia when he remixes old school cumbia with his Frikstailer partner-in-crime Rafa Caivano. Sometimes he’s Sandro Lee when he’s lonely and wants to explore the moody realms of IDM. Recently he also became Sandro de América, not the romantic crooner from the ’60s, but a DJ who entertains his crowd with mashups of disposable pop regurgitated in unexpected ways.
Mashup Menoshup is the title of his first release under this new alter ego. A collection of juxtaposed vocals and instrumentals by an odd variety of creatures like Britney Spears, a chipmunked Christina Aguilera, Limp Bizkit, Calle 13, Daddy Yankee, and La Mala Rodríguez. All of these bastard pop versions are obviously done without the proper consent of the original stars, so he’s giving them away for free in this digital release. As a side note, Frikstailers have also recently started their own blog, Cassette, where we hope to find more stuff like this in the future.
