The goal of every successful mashup is to give the impression that you’re programming one fluid song. When it becomes too obvious that you’re listening to one or more songs over another, the mashup loses its magic. And over the last couple of years, there’s been a stigma attached to mashup producers with skeptics saying there’s no true art to this musical form.
The above notwithstanding, there’s a small circle of super-talented mashup producers who are attempting to spotlight their music and prove that fusing multiple songs together is an art form in and of itself.
From the track selection to the timing to the overall structure here are several things to consider when bringing a mashup idea to life. This is where GLDN Collective comes into play, a tight-knit team of producers who are able to compose the best and most creative multi-track productions. Ricky Cervantes of this group seamlessly samples ‘Treasure‘ by Bruno Mars and ‘Sometime‘ by Dallas Cotton into one brilliant product.
