 GHP: Rapture Riders (2004)

One of the most famous tracks by GHP (British DJ/producer and remixer Mark Vidler), this breakthrough in mash-ups was so good it was approved by both Blondie and the Doors (whose Rapture and Riders on the Storm it pulled together).

It was even included on Blondie's 2005 Greatest Hits collection.

GHP (Go Home Productions) has created more than 200 mash-ups using everyone from Abba, Britney and the Beatles through Michael Jackson, the Monkees and Madonna to Velvet Underground and XTC.

Here's another of his most famous and popular mash-ups.

No need to identify these two acts.
