Notes

Available exclusively as part of the DJ Hero bundle sold through djshadow.com. The bundle was available to play on Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The pack featured an autographed game controller, a character t-shirt, stickers and this 12".

The vinyl was issued in a generic black die-cut sleeve with a DJ Shadow (DJ Hero style) sticker affixed. Labels are stamped with tracks information and have written on them "Wet" on side A and "Dry" on side B in gold pen.

Timings are not to be found on release and were retrieved using a stopwatch.

Side A (Wet) is playing in-game mashups with added scratches, cross faders and various other effects, while side B (Dry) is playing rough mixes from the aforementioned tracks.
Those mashups are mixes based on these tracks:
A1/B1 David Bowie - Let's Dance / KRS One - Jack of Spades
A2/B2 Chuck Brown and the Soul Searches - Bustin' Loose / The Zombies - Time of the Season
A3/B3 Nirvana - All Apologies / Rick James - Give It to Me Baby
A4/B4 Beastie Boys - Here's A Little Something For Ya / DJ Shadow - The Number Song

Bundle cost was $159.99.
