"ASSIMILATION THEORY" is an album project resulting from an idea of the bootlegger, remixer and mashup artist Dunpoofin' (Scotland) which consists in producing audio mashups of songs from the
latest MUSE album SIMULATION THEORY. The mashup artists involved in this project - all of them being Muse fans - come from all over the world : Dunproofin' (Scotland), DJ Y alias JY (Germany /
France), HyperZyle (UK), oki (Netherlands), Rudec (Portugal), Smashcolor (USA), Titus Jones (USA) and ToToM (France).
The result is a melting-pot of improbable tracks where Muse is mixed with Britney Spears, Billie Eilish, The Police, Lady Gaga, Foster The People, Black Sabbath or even Busta Rhymes among much more other sources. Each track on the album has its own mashup, sometimes even two different mashups depending on the inspiration. The songs have been meticulously mastered to have the best possible audio quality and to guarantee listening comfort throughout the whole album, as well as the bonus disc companion named "Alternative Reality", made of choice cuts from each participant's back catalog.
Some of the bootleggers involved also edited mashup videos of their own track(s), they're visible on the dedicated website and the respective website of each producer.
