Mashups: Volume 1 is my latest EP, containing 5 video game soundtrack remixes. Each of these video game mashups is a bootleg remix of a video game theme vs one of my favorite hip-hop acapellas. You can download it through Bandcamp below.
This EP of video game hip hop mashups came to me during a summer break from my DJ podcast, The Mullet Mashup, that I took in order to spend more time working on my production skills.
That meant meeting with several friends in their studios to get my questions answered and see their workflow. It also meant watching a TON of YouTube tutorials on the finer elements of drum kits, tweaking instrumentals, mixing, and mastering.
When I was matching some of my favorite acapellas with various soundtracks to video games, I came across 5 combinations that I thought went particularly well. They ended up becoming the 5 tracks below.
Video Game Soundtrack Remixes in 'Mashups: Volume 1"
- Wanna Be a Brawler - Lil Troy vs Streets of Rage (Sega Genesis)

What's next? My next project will be more video game soundtrack mashups, of course! My Push 2 device just came in the mail, and I have 5-6 halfway made mashups just waiting to be completed. I think it will make for a fun opportunity to get familiar with my new controller. See you next time!
