The Melker Projects' Ballin’ Oates Hall & Oates mashup mixtape is today’s immaculate gift from the Internet to your ears

DJ Scott Melker’s The Melker Project has been putting out free mixtapes over the past year mashing up hip-hop artists with The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac. But his latest release is by far his best work, combining the 80’s pop styling of Daryl Hall and John Oates with Wu-Tang Clan, T.I. and other hip-hop artists for Ballin’ Oates. The first track mixes Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.” with “Maneater,” and other highlights include “Kiss On My List” with Twista and Kanye West. It’s five tracks and 20-minutes of incredible mashup work that should get Hall & Oates stuck in your head for the next few days.
