Something unexpected happened this week…I created a Thriller Mashup (Downloads Available). This is the second unscheduled, unplanned, impromptu recording that just sort of happened.
It was recorded on September 8 and 9, 2015 during a planning session for my upcoming Adobe Gila’s gig. The night started similar to any other weeknight really. I sat down at the computer and began digging through the Internet looking for music. Typically my search begins with a DJ pool, then Soundcloud, and from there I usually end up down some deep and dark rabbit hole of music. My search resulted in about 5 tracks that would be useful during future performances, which is a pretty decent amount for a night’s worth of digging. I was content with the tracks that I had found and moved on to another part of my nightly routine…mixing records.
So there I stand, mixing records (digitally using Serato), and I stumbled upon a couple of Thriller remixes that I found a few days prior. The night I found these Thriller records, I also set out to find an old breakbeat classic called Nightmare Walking. I must have had Halloween on my mind that night. Loaded in the decks, are a Thriller Remix and a remix of Nightmare Walking. I begin to bounce between them and notice that these two were made for each other! After a few minutes of messing around, I eventually pressed record and had no idea it would result in an official Mashup. Muahahahahahahahahaha (Vincent Price laugh).
