mash smarter not harder isn’t just an EP. it’s an audio manifesto, a roadmap to a mashed-up future. the goal of this EP isn’t just to generate downloads or make you shake your ass, but to spawn a new golden age of mashups.
fed up with the stagnation of so-called mashup music, stAllio! began a series of "post-mashup" releases to inject some new ideas into the scene. this, the first of these releases, acts as a basic introduction — think "lesson one" — before moving on to more advanced lessons in the sequels "a huge smash" and "fixed that for you".
