RockstarBruski said: Well I like this one and it's been awhile for me since I've heard this owl city track and I think this is a good production so.... RECOMMEND!
lloyd said: Yeah... there's nothing wrong with this apart from the timing of the release, it's too soon for a nostalgic mash and too late to be current... nice work though

DRA'man said: more i listen to it and more i think it's a hit, yes "foster the people" has been very used, and my first reaction was that the sources are not my cuppa, but i admit this one is good and it derserves FRONTPAGE !

Colatron said: Hey Dim, so glad this got an FP as I loved it on Facebook and I still love it now!! So thanks Alex for beating me to the punch, as I would have FP-ed this in the blink of an eye myself
As an aside, when it comes to using sources that have been mashed to death, I always look at it from the point of view that if the track is so strong, then there's no reason why it can't be mashed 6 months after the original frenzy over a source file has died down. Hell, Foster the People certainly wasn't no "Set Fire To the Rain"!! Plus, it's a better track anyway!
Also, I could name maybe 2 or 3 FTP mashies that were actually any good anyway, and so this stands head and shoulders above the majority, thus it thoroughly deserves it release and Front-page.
So with that in mind... I away to make a start on my Missy Elliot vs. Rick Astley vs. PSY mash
