Ok little bit of DJ chat from me now (it's been a while ) brought on by a cdr i found going through 1 of my old cd wallets i'd take to gigs.
This cdr to be precise
It's a "Mash up" (i dislike that term) of these 2 tunes that i put together some years ago to take to gigs and play out.
The 2 tunes are Whiplash and turners - Don't go lose your pride (Strong Reprise) which has the keyboard,guitar part and especially the vocal only, kinda like an a cappella but with extra elements but no percussion.The other track JJK's white label release of "always there" had what is known as a dj tool on the flip which is commonly just beats and maybe some sweeping synth noises here and there for markers when in the mix,these could be used to put a cappella vocals over the top to completely change the structure of a tune,a live remix if you will.
This is really a fun and creative part of mixing music together,this is 2 records on my technics 1210's being blended and kept in time together live in the mix and recorded from the mixer into audacity to make a tune i could burn and play out in clubs.
Now i know this ain't everyones cup of char but some might find this interesting,i'd forgotten about it to be honest but finding it again was a pleasant surprise.
Here's a taster of the original whiplash and turner track
And here's my version,i uploaded it to soundcloud just follow the link.
the intro is very long so if you get easily bored(as i know some do) skip it on to around 3.30mins and the vocals and all else will start.
Classic stuff Cool & soul!
Wow a promo' copy Cool Breeze!
