It’s not easy pulling in some iconic samples and making ’em all flow together as fluidly as any of their originals, but D.veloped seems to do it quite often.
In his latest, “Dangerously Melodic Anthem” takes many of the tracks we’ve grown up on and mashes ’em together like cake on ice cream (or is it the other way around). Many of the samples shouldn’t be considered together in any right mind, but since D.veloped’s already pulled it off, I’ll let him slide by this time.
Who wants to name off all the samples on here. I’ll start with one, you fill in the rest – War’s “Low Rider.”
Not only is this one sick ass surfer vid, but it’s got one killer track to back it up. Salem’s “King Night” captures the power of this GoPro array like a charm. It takes this damn decent of a shot and puts it on one holy level. Love how music can do that.
Adele & Gambino would make for one of the most unlikely combos, but damn would it be some fresh.ass.shit. But until that never happens, we get a little collaboration project which takes the two, plus Chief Stockton rhymes, and is produced into one reflective, easy swaying piece. Can’t wait to hear what comes next with this Gangbang of a project – no doubt an interesting concept.
* Most of you probably haven’t heard of Chief Stockton before, I hadn’t, but even though The Gangbang put him in with two powerhouses, he seems to hold his own.
8corp has that certain gift for supermashups. You know that one where he takes such varying vocals and weaves ’em into one seamless piece. When he gets into those certain romps of his, you don’t know what’s coming next, but you know it’s gonna be goooood.
One thing I didn’t care for were the vocal manipulations resulting in that Chipmunk effect, though it’s small price to pay for this beaut of a mashup.
Basic Physics is a mashup producer that hails from the good ol’ Midwest. I’ve been following his career for just over a year now and every once in a while a mashup of his pops up that blows me outta the water. He may not be the most prolific masher, spitting out one or more every week, but when you see a release by him, you know he took the time to get it right.
We start off with a decent dance around AC/DC’s “TNT”, until we get into the thick of it all. Soon after the first drop, all hell breaks loose with Avicii’s “Levels” & Taio Cruz’s catchy rhymes from “Dynamite”. Intermission kicks in with an Etta James sample that Pretty Lights made popular. Second half ends it all with Journey’s classic of all classics, “Don’t Stop Believing”, with continuing backups from […]
With two mixtapes that’ve already dropped this year and one more on the way, Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, has got to be one of the most prolific artists of 2011.
In what I’m guessing is the first single to drop from his third album, Echoes of Silence, “Initiation” is another haunting look into this R&B fiend. With vocal manipulations throughout the track, this shit feels trippier than ever before.
Echoes is expected to release October 24 for Drake’s birthday. Can’t wait to hear how he raps up the year.
Niiiiice one, Hooky! Always thought you’d do well with a classic game remix, for some reason I always hear traces of it in your music, and you haven’t disappointed this time ’round. Not only did you pick such a classic tune from Sonic, but this bass music rides the original tempo just right.
Now I gots to find more classic game remixes that contend with this. Suggestions
Screw dubstep, hip-hop, alt rock, electronic; screw it all. It’s all about the Funk. This site may be flooded with just about everything electronic, but as soon as I can find my new groove in this funk scene, I’ll be all up on it.
For now I’ve got Cassian’s remix of “When You’re Dancing”, which brings in the percussions, horns and all the instrumentals for that rhythm and beats beaut-A-ness. Enjoy rockin out to this nostalgic bring back and if ya got any new funk you’ve found, drop it on us!
ill-esha brings back this 90’s classic and puts some heavy glitch bass to the mix. Better yet, she keeps to the original beat, not trying to impress with massive, incoherent drops.
Now, if she could only find more contemporary vocals for her to drop her lovliness on… wait, doesn’t she sing too
