Making Mashups; Featuring One Bored Jeu

One Bored Jeu, or originally ‘One Bored Jew’, is a talented mashup artist starting in 2012. This name happened by happenstance because the username, “One Bored Jew” was taken.

“My user/channel name is pronounced “one bored jew”. I would’ve been oneboredjew but Tumblr wouldn’t let me pick that as my username back in 2012. That’s when I changed the “w” to a “u” to bypass that. If I had known my mashups would take off, I would not have called myself this lol,” she explained in her FAQ.

Using Audacity, she brings together different songs, sounds, beats, and music to create her own mashups. Mashups, which you probably remember from the Mashup article, are where an artist takes multiple sources of audio and combining them into one gorgeous song. Oneboredjeu was showcased in “Mash-Up Songs” with their mashup of “The Lone Slim Shady” By oneboredjeu Mashup.

That’s not her only amazing mashup. She’s been creating since 2012 with songs coming out regularly. Unfortunately, at this time, the only place to listen to her mashups are on Youtube. As she use mostly official instrumentals but not have any rights to redistribute, she’s not only on Youtube.

Below are several of her most popular mashups for your listening pleasure.

“Barbie Girl” by Aqua and “Rain On Me” by Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande combine into something sweet but sour.

“Say It Ain’t So” by Weezer with the addition of “Psycho” by Post Malone feat. Ty Dolla $ign create this trippy mashup.

“Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran with the lyrics of “Down With The Sickness” by Disturbed is a superbly chill mashup.

Making a high energy mashup is “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa and “Feel Good Inc.” by Gorillaz.

Gravity Falls Main Title Theme” by Brad Breeck with the vocals of “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers bring nostalgia to a whole new level.
