Hey everyone, check out this mashup from Rumney! The song is called Lost In Au Love and it features a mix of music from Julio Bashmore – Au seve, The Real Thing – You too me are everything, Redlight – Lost in your love.
This mashup is a new sound for me. I am not one to proactively go search for mashups that have the 80’s pop-love theme to it. This is definitely a mashup for a unique area of the mashup community.
The song starts out with an upbeat tempo, something that most people will find enjoyable and easy to listen to. Once the “Lost in your love” lyrics kick in is when we get that 80’s feel.
I do have some issues with some of the transitions. For instance, at 1:28, there is too much going on, the “record scratching” is so obvious that it become the focal point of that section and it throws off the rest of the music.
My biggest issue with this mashup is that it gets to be very repetitive. Once you have heard the first half of the song, you might as well turn it off because it is essentially the same till the end.
So as a suggestion, for future mashups, try to add as much as you can to the mashup that is new, exciting, and unexpected. This will insure that your listeners will want to keep listening because they want to know what is coming next. If you or someone else can predict the next step in the song, you have failed as a DJ.
While this is positive energy in this mashup, this mash could take some more interesting lyrical weaving and some more exciting beats.
