The Negative Zone Remix
A complete track-by-track remix of the first hard-hitting Sinister Six album, but from a different reality!
All 10 of the original songs from the "Invasion of the Mic Snatchers" album have been sent through a portal device directly into the Negative Zone. After a month, the tracks were retrieved, but these were from the other side of the mirror - the beats have been switched out, speeds were altered, genres were crisscrossed... But there's one thing scientists can confirm: They are indeed fresh specimens for your ears.
The appropriately-named remixer MasDaMind has mashed up each track for a completely new, surprisingly quirky effect. See what your dimension has been missing!

ALBUM COMPOSITION AND TRIVIA
This album was a blast to make, and took less than a month to completely fix up. All tracks were mashed together by MasDaMind (Youtube here) (Facebook here) (blog here) and tweaks, adjustments, and advice were given by MadHatter in the process.
"Through the Herald and the Flames" was originally planned to be mixed with the 90's X-Men cartoon theme, but due to complications, this idea was scrapped and Dragonforce was used instead for a more perfect fit. It was originally produced by Dragonforce and performed by Dragonforce. Copyright Roadrunner / Universal 2006.
"Make Way for the Wild Wild West" is MadHatter's personal favorite on this album. The original "Make Way" chorus also appeared in another one of MasDaMind's remixes called "Come With Nerdcore" alongside verses from Scrub Club emcees Kabuto The Python and MadHatter. It was originally produced by Rob Fusari and Mark Wilson and performed by Will Smith and Dru Hill. Copyright Overbrook / Interscope / Columbia 1999.
"Deeper" also appeared in another one of MasDaMind's remixes called "Deeper Room Service." This particular Castlevania mash-up was originally produced by Kenichi Matsubara. Copyright Konami / Nintendo 1988.
"Master of Dice" was the toughest mashup to do. It took three complete do-overs to nail it. Timing was the biggest issue, and of course the 1986 recording isn't the best thing to the ears when mixed with raps. It was originally produced by Metallica and performed by Metallica. Copyright Elektra / Music for Nations / Vertigo 1986.
"Intergalactic HQ" was difficult to put together as well. Two songs were attempted to mix with this track that didn't quite work - "Still Dre" and "Roc Boys." But ultimately, "Intergalactic" worked best. It was originally produced by Mario Caldato and performed by Beastie Boys. Copyright Capitol Records 1998.
"Lying from your Scientistik Shoulders," believe it or not, needed only minor editing. The tempos and timing were nearly dead-on. The original "Scientistik" track was also used in one of MasDaMind's Goldeneye 64 mashups. It was originally produced by Mike Shinoda and performed by Linkin Park and Jay-Z. Copyright Roc-A-Fella / Machine Shop / Warner Bros. / Def Jam 2004.
"Tear OPP Up" was a little tough to mix, but it's apparent now that these songs were just made for one another. The original "Tear It Up" track was also used in another one of MasDaMind's mashups with “On to the Next One” by Jay-Z. It was originally produced and performed by Naughty by Nature. Copyright Tommy Boy Records 1991.
"Sin Six PSA" was originally performed by Daniel Vargas (MasDaMind).
"School House Break Down" (MasDaMind's Donkey Kong Country 2 Mashup) was originally produced by David Wise. Copyright Rareware / Nintendo 1995.
"On the Black or White Hunt" (MasDaMind's Michael Jackson Mashup) was originally produced and performed by Michael Jackson. Copyright Epic 1991.
"Rise Hard" (MasDaMind's Rihanna Mashup) was originally produced by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart and performed by Rihanna and Young Jeezy. Copyright Def Jam 2009.
