Think of all the pussy you could squirt in if you were a douche to
Dlove: It sounds good for what it is, well produced etc, just it's not my particularly favourite style. Don't get me wrong, there are GREAT mash ups out there, I just think its like everything in EDM now, disposable and the shit out weighs the gold. But thats how it has always been and will be. I just think too many people think it's an easy thing to do and use it as a way out of doing any actual, (I don't want to say 'real' production work because I understand mash ups are difficult.) but, I guess original production work. Even a lot of productions aren't very original anymore and a lot are just mash ups of loops and samples more so than actual compositions. But we seem to have stumbled on a culture where people find something that works and desperately try to emmulate it. Be it mash ups, club nights, specific directions genres take and so forth.
Years ago, commercial Dance musicians were identifiable by their sound. Every producer had a unique sound. Literally. ATB had a specific sounding synth. Darude had another. Scooter had Chipmunk voices and so on and so on. I just find that lacking now. Kinda like, Skrillex has his sound. Deadmau5 has his... And because they are the bee's knees' now, everyone wants to be them instead of being themselves. It just seems to reflect more in Mash Ups because you're taking songs ALL READY created and a lot of them don't need work done to them. They are fine as they are. But sometimes 2 songs just go great together in every way. They may be worlds apart but they just work. That's not something that can be found by creating a mash up jsut for the sake of uploading it to Sound Cloud to have a thousand comments. It has to be found by listening to what allready exists and exploring a VAST, myriad of genres and formats inside and outside Electronic Dance Music. I would call a lot of what passes as mash ups now days as just, a 2 song mix. Thats all.
Actually dude, If I could get my Cdjs out, I'd do one that I've always done live with 2 RnB songs. But again, it's more a 2 song mix more so than a mash up
