I was going completely out of my mind during the creation of this mashup. I was still a bit frustrated by the fact that I’ve recently been to late with the ideas or releases of some mashups. So I was looking at the currently popular tracks that I would like to see mashed up. The Sugar song from Flo Rida was one that popped out of the list because, I wasn’t really happy with the R&B beat behind it and some of the breaks in the track.
A few weeks ago Native Instruments started with a public test of Traktor 1.2 beta in all Pro/Duo Scratch/Non-Scratch versions. Since I was looking forward to the new “Elastique Pro” timestretching algorithm that would be in the next version I also joined the beta. And so far so good, the beta seems to be stable and have some nice improvements. I’ve focused my testing on the new Key Lock algorithm.
There are a number of acapellas that are very likely to be played by DJs. Acapellas like Who is Jack, Music from Madonna, Bob Sinclar with The beat goes on and so on. The three acapellas I justed listed do have in common that they link to DJing by some phrases in the text, just like Dimples D – Sucker DJ.
Today, May the 30th, is a great day. Not only the sun is shining but the AKAI APC 40 Ableton Live MIDI Controller is officially released. Since the announcement I’ve been looking forward to get my hands on this peace of hardware. I am still waiting for my order to arrive, but hope to be able to tell you more soon.
