Super Mash Bros
Forming in 2008 when they were just high school boys, Dick Fink and Nick Fenmore decided to pair up after pursuing individual DJ endeavors. Both were digital music artists and well-versed in all genres of music, hence the ease with which their tracks come together to form interesting masterpieces. They are known to mashup a wide variety of chart-topping and popular songs spanning nearly every decade. Their debut album, “Fuck Bitches. Get Euros” was predominantly heard on college campuses across the U.S. and was succeeded by “All About the Scrillions” and “Mile(y) High Club.” As one of the few artists today that focuses solely on mashups, Super Mash Bros know how to keep the genre fresh and keep their audiences partying throughout the night.
From the start Super Mash Bros brought the energy to the Ballrooom with an awesome mix of this year’s hit “Cannonball” by Showtek. They eventually segued into a mix of Dr. Dre and Eminem’s “Guilty Conscience” and followed up by Skrillex’s “The Devil’s Den.” Going from electro house to rap to dubstep, everyone was kept on their toes and never knew what to expect.
The highlights were definitely Dog Blood’s “Next Order” + “Gangnam Style” and Porter Robinson’s “Language” + the title theme from Space Jam. Some heavy-hitting curveballs were also thrown in such as “Sandstorm” by Darude + “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and “Woo Boost” by Rusko + “What You Know” by T.I. Toward the end of the night, Super Mash Bros decided to get a bit nostalgic when they spun the Friend’s theme song and even brought a microphone to the crowd for a sing-a-long. Everyone could not resist chiming in with that as well as, “Party in the USA.” It brought a more comical element to the show, which was well-received. Even their visuals included popular things from the 90s era: Hey Arnold!, Bill Nye the Science Guy and furby all flashed across the screen at some point and allowed us to get lost in memories of childhood while still raging out to excellent music.
Though the turnout was lower than I had hoped, it made for a more intimate and carefree setting. Super Mash Bros showed their appreciation by giving the front row high fives and throwing two bouquets of flowers into the mass of sweaty people. The last couple of tracks were well-selected and quickly brought the assembly of ravers and clubbers back into rage mode: Swedish House Mafia’s party tune “Greyhound” and a sick mashup of Pendulum’s “The Island Pt. 1 Dawn” + the 2012 summer hit “Calling” by Alesso and Sebastian Ingrosso. To conclude their short one and a half hour set, Super Mash Bros played, probably the most random song of the night, “Scotty Doesn’t Know” from the film EuroTrip. The Ballroom suddenly became a rock concert with everybody jumping around, a bit of moshing and headbanging. It was an unusual way to end but, it served as a refresher and a reminder that rock can be appreciated by even the most hardcore EDM fans.
By seriously taking Webster Hall’s typical attendees into account, Super Mash Bros were able to deliver a near-perfect show. The majority of the tracks were EDM mixes and clearly demonstrated how much they love to entertain and make sure that the crowd will enjoy themselves. I must admit I was not expecting to hear so many of my favorite songs and it made the night even better! The energy was consistent, every single person was clearly having a good time and their talent was blatantly put on display for us to see and hear. Although they will not be performing at any festivals this summer (based on their Facebook page and website), I’m sure they will be making another appearance at Webster Hall in the near future since they absolutely killed it!
