Hey everyone, check out this mashup coming from Edward Dunne, Dope Ass Dadi! I have a slight suggestion, make sure you crank the music for this one.
This mashup comes at you with the fire of hell and doesn’t hold back. While, I know this mashup is not going to be for everyone, I think many of you will appreciate it. This mashup is not the usual mashup that gets featured here. This one is a little crazy and very unpredictable which I really like.
My positives for this mashup are many, so let’s get into it. I love the attitude that this mashup brings to the table. Fast, loud, excited, and even triumphant. This mashup is meant to inspire some crazy, body flopping dancing. This mashup with absolutely get you throwing your hands up in the air. I really like that this mashup has a “chorus” that it goes back to, it provides for some point where we all can get back to the familiar and rock out like crazy.
My favorite part of the mashup is the heavy bass that rocks my head ever so gently. Freaking awesome.
Now, while this mashup has some great moments, there are also a couple areas where I definitely am not feeling the beat. What am I talking about? Go to :44.
This lady’s vocals DO NOT work with the beat. If you listen to it even partially paying attention, you can tell that her vocals (and her back up vocals) are not in the same key as the beat. This causes what I like to call “tone war”. Each one is fighting for the forefront of the song and end up making the beat sound awful! What I like though is that it eventually flows back into some awesome “scratch” like mixing (see 2:00).
Overall, I have to say, this mashup is a good one. It blows my headphones out and it makes my head bob up and down, so I like it. There is the annoying “tone war” that happens every once in a while, but its not so bad that I want to turn the song off. The worst part about the female vocals isn’t even that it fights with the music, its that it sucks the energy out of the song.
Comment, share, and come back for more mashups!
