`La Ritournelle is a track that has very deep meaning for me, and I’ve wanted to mash it and Tellier’s work for a long time but nothing worked – seems I did so twice as there are two Sebastian Tellier tracks that have never been posting actually, I found another one which I’m also posting here.
This is one of the many ‘lost’ challenge tracks I either didn’t post at all, or posted over at Sowndhaus and didn’t post here. Not sure why, I know at the time the vocal sounded slightly off to me, then again Adele is all E M O T I O N A L in this track, so it’s *elmo shrug* from me why I did that. The surprising thing is that I made artwork for it, those tracks usually get posted as I only do that for tracks I think are good.
While idly singing Easy on Me I started hearing the piano to Man With The Child In His Eyes.
Technically this shouldn’t work, and almost (and probably) doesn’t. Either a good lesson that you should ‘try’ things rather than relying on Tunebat/Googling keys, or a trainwreck lesson that you can’t force things.
Not sure which it is at the moment, but putting it out there anyway because I think it works enough. And there aren’t enough Kate Bush mashups in the world!
A track from last week’s Crumplbangers Discord Challenge, it made second place! And I think one of my best ones, The challenge was to use sources 60 years or more apart – this was almost exactly 60 bar a few months, 1961 vs 2021, Patsy Cline – Crazy vs Olivia Rodrigo – Driver’s License. I am a massive Patsy Cline fan, her early stuff is eerie, so I’ve always wanted to do a Patsy mash. And Olivia works well with Patsy…
And I couldn’t resist the Driving Miss Daisy pun, I realised it made a better title than ‘Crazy Driving’ when I was doing the artwork so it got renamed.
Picking up where the first one left off with also a look into the pre-history of my first mashups – included is my third ever mashup, and there is earlier in the secret bonus section *only* with the full album download.
Includes: Exclusive unreleased bootlegs and annotations for each bootleg, extra bonus demos and alternate versions, and I have remixed and remastered many of them to make them all nice and shiny for 2020.
I have sourced 36 of the 38 tracks from lossless sources, many for the first time as they existed only as low-res MP3 on here.
It is like a bootleg box set!
And there is more to come in this set, I have deeply raked over the last 17 years of making mashups.
