Cartrouble (Part 3)
Adam & The Ants - Cartrouble [single version]
Adam & The Ants - Cartrouble (Part 1) [original album version]

Carty updates us with his recollections of this remix:

"I always swore never to touch Cartrouble, as it holds a very dear place in my heart and childhood memories. However, as the years passed and my knowledge of the production technology increased, the temptation hit me. So out came my bag of digital tricks and I set out to work on a remix."

"Cartrouble Part 1 is very club-like, so I set upon the idea of making this project a dancefloor-filling stomper! If this were to not live up to my high expectations, then there was no way I was going to make it public. This mix kicks ass!"


2. Adam & The Ants - The Household Brick Mix
Free Download
The Household Brick Mix
Guns 'n' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
Adam & The Ants - Beat My Guest [B-side version]
Adam & The Ants - Fat Fun [AntBox version]
Adam & The Ants - Hampstead [demo]
Adam & The Ants - Fall In [B-side verion]
Adam & The Ants - Whip In My Valise [B-side version]

Marco Pirroni once told Carty that Guns 'n' Roses stole their guitar intro on Sweet Child O' Mine from his Beat My Guest intro. And seeing that Carty had always wanted to do a mix of the more punk Ant B-sides, it seemed a good idea to try and bring these ingredients together.

This mix begins with the opening GnR bars, and gradually speeds up as the Beat My Guest intro joins in. Once we've reached the correct tempo, it's time to mix in the other Ants' tracks. Again, this is another Carty fave and still sounds great today.


3. Adam vs P!nk - Get This Ant Party Started [Resurrection Remix]
Free Download
Get This Ant Party Started [Resurrection Remix]
Adam & The Ants - Don't Be Square (Be There) [studio version]
Pink - Let's Get This Party Started [acapella]
Adam & The Ants - Dirk Wears White Socks [demo]
Adam & The Ants - Ants Invasion [album version]
Adam & The Ants - Jolly Roger [album version]

A much improved remake of the mashup which appears on Carty Mixes Volume 2. If you have ever attended an Ant Lib Ant Disco, you can pretty much bet that Madam Stan will begin with this version.

A remake was necessary as that older mix was done on older software and was a little rough in places. This time, the production is much more slicker and exactly how it should have been in the first place.


4. Carty - Let There Be Drum Drums
Free Download
Let There Be Drum Drums
Adam Ant - Kings Of The Wild Frontier [live 22-03-95 Soundboard recording]

Criminal Element Orchestra - Put The Needle To The Record
Musical Youth - Pass The Dutchie
Adam Ant - Monkey Man [Save The Gorilla EP]
Adam & The Ants - Kings Of The Wild Frontier (single version)
Adam & The Ants - Dog Eat Dog

Carty goes all drum 'n' bass on us with this drum-influenced track, drawing influences from two live recordings of Kings Of The Wild Frontier from Adam's 1995 Wonderful gigs at the Shepherd's Bush Empire, along with samples from Pass The Dutchie, Monkey Man, Dog Eat Dog and the studio version of Kings.

The live drums intro used here was also used aain in 2009 for The Great Lakes Remix of Dog Eat Dog (which has yet to be alocated a CD volume!).


5. Rachel vs Adam - Ant Said Never Again [Backdoor Remix]
Free Download
Ant Said Never Again
Rachel Stevens - I Said Never Again (But Here We Are) [extended version]
Status Quo - What You're Proposin'
Adam & The Ants - 'Antmusic' [album version]
Adam & The Ants - Kings Of The Wild Frontier [single version]

As featured on the DMC DJ only compilation, Commercial Collection Issue 274, this mashup was the first that Carty had sent to DMC, a organisation he had been a member of since 1987. They liked it so much they included it their monthly CDs, much to Carty's surprise, as he found out after the CD had been released.

After a quick call to DMC, they sent him a cheque for using the mix, which Carty had framed (after banking it and making a copy, that is!).

This inspired him to submit more mixes to DMC, although this remains the only one to be used.


6. Adam & The Ants - Kick! [Resurrection Remix]
Free Download
Adam & The Ants - Kick [2004 Dirk version]
Adam & The Ants - Kick! [B-side version]

A new remake of the remix which appears on Carty Mixes Volume 1.

Adam And The Ants - Deutscher Girls [single version]
Adam And The Ants - Prince Charming [single version]
Adam Ant - Rough Stuff [album version]
Burundi Black - Burundi Black [original version]
Adam & The Ants - Ants Invasion [album version]

After usuing the melody of Desperate But Serious for the Crazy Ant project, Yabba Ding Ding, it was decided to convert it into a fresh remix. This time Carty used the Adam vocal samples at their correct pitch. Another Carty personal fave.
