LA's Coolest Producers (Daedelus, Shlohmo, etc.) Do Prince, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Soulja Boy and More (Free Download of Entire Album)

Los Angeles' Friends of Friends Music has spent 2010 figuring out how to reinvent the way music is released and as a thank you for a successful year, FoF is giving fans a free download of its Pop Massacre compilation. FoF gave its favorite producers simple instructions: "choose a song from any era of popular culture to be source material of a song for our 'Pop Massacre' compilation." The result is a 13-track slaughtering of new and classic pop hits by Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Beach Boys, Spice Girls, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Soulja Boy and others by the best beat makers around, most of which are local:
