El Mashup

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Alright so I finished my mashup a little early. This turned out way better than I expected it to sound when I originally did it so i hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

I tried to make a single song pulling from two completely opposite sides of the spectrum, two completely different eras and make them one. Isn’t that the whole point of mashups anyway?

I used Frank Sinatra’s instrumental of “My Way” which is probably his most popular song and sort of embodies his career as a whole. This song is grandiose with beautiful slow moving instrumentals.

Overtop of it I put an a capella version of Tupac’s “My Block”, a song that talks about where he’s come from and what he’s been through… see the similarity?

I attempted to bring these two masters of their respective genre’s together to send a single message. I call it, “On My Block, I Did It My Way”. Enjoy!

So i suppose my favorite mashup or remix is probably just the dubstep genre as a whole. Here are some of my favorite dubstep songs:
