On NIGHT RIPPER, Girl Talk has perfected his unique blend of sample-collation. The album flows smooth, like a river of melted chocolate. The individual tracks don't stand out, but they're not meant to. This is as much about the blend as it about the groove. A few mixes pop, however, like the MIA/Kanye West/Candyman monstrosity of "Summer Smoke" or "Bounce That," which sounds recurs again on this next album, FEED THE ANIMALS

The album Night Ripper has some of the best mash ups i've ever heard  . If you've never heard Girl Talk, you really need to hear this guy. The album Night Ripper has some of the best mash ups i've ever heard. Ludacris and Boston, Elton John and Notorious BIG. Just check out this album, seriously. Jan 6, 2007, 12:54 PM.

The Mashup genre is usually a hit or miss ordeal. The complex is simple on paper: Take 2 or more songs from completely different artists, throw them in a blender, and hit the purée button. Night Ripper does not succeed because of it’s sampling. It doesn’t succeed because it is catchy. It succeeds because it is inventive, original, and thoroughly addictive. Gillis manages to chop up so many different samples, from all across the board, that the results sound nothing like the original

Gregg Gillis has been cutting up and gluing bits and pieces of songs together as a DJ in Pittsburgh since his 2002 debut, Secret Diary, an album that, though a lot of easily identifiable samples (the Price Is Right theme, for example) were used, was so delayed and skipped and glitched that it was too obfuscated to do much in the mainstream

Night Ripper is the third album by Gregg Gillis, released on Illegal Art in 2006 under the name Girl Talk. It is composed almost entirely of samples taken from other artists' songs, plus minor original material by Gillis. Gillis has stated that the album was created as one long piece of music and then subsequently broken into individual songs. Album descriptions on Last.

Pittsburgh-based Gregg Gillis ups the ante. Like DJ Shadow or the Avalanches, only with obvious samples rather than obscure ones, he doesn't just make two songs smell like pirate booty-he reduces the factor by creating new music from many of them.
