“Girl Talk“– it typically consists of gossip, boys and shopping. However, Gregg Michael Gillis is redefining how we use the term ‘Girl Talk.’ He has turned this catch phrase and twisted it into a rebel force of collaborative pop music. Forget the cosmetics and cat fights, this kind of Girl Talk has a different weapon of choice: Mashup music.
For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last couple of years, Mashup music consists of taking an already popular song and blending two or more pre-recorded songs with each other. What makes Girl Talk unique from his peers is the fact that he was among the first to transform this type of music and push it into the mainstream stratosphere. By essentially taking a little of this and a little of that, mixing one vocal track of one song over the instrumental track of another, it combines to make one super sweet symphony of dance music.
In addition to the usual remixing, Girl Talk puts on an elaborate show fueled with high energy fun. Being tousled by toilet paper streamers, cotton candy colored confetti and strobe lights that illuminate the dancer within all of us, Orange County was certainly able to hear this Girl Talk loud and clear.
