Mashstix Mash-off #66 - Going solo **DJ LEGATO WINS**

Post Thu Aug 30, 2018 7:22 pm

It's September! Time for the kids to go back to school. Time for the adults to go back to work. It may just happen that during September you find yourself with a little bit of alone time. If so, this would be a great time to make a killer mashup! :1wink:

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a mashup with only one limitation...
IT MUST CONTAIN A SOLO. The type of solo is completely up to you, guitar solos, keyboard solos, and saxophone solos are pretty common, but please don't let the creativity end there. I'll gladly accept a bass guitar solo, adrum solo, a flute solo, or even a vocal solo. The solo can be part of the instrumental track, or you can drop in a stem (that might not have even been a solo in its original song) and create a solo that way. Feel free to experiment with it! :1grin:

THE 5-STEP DESCRIPTION:

At the start of every month, the (newly entitled) Emperor of MashStix posts a thread containing details of the challenge, for Example: 'Mashups 90bpm or slower with the theme of love'. They should also include the '5-Step Description' and the 'FAQ'.

The post will then shortly be stickied to the top of the 'Submit Mashups' section for all to see and respond to with their entries. Entries must be in by the 20th.
A vote will be created within that thread for everyone to vote on who should win and become the new Emperor (the vote can be created by the current emperor so please don't wait for a mod to do it as we are a busy people)

On the 27th (or until the last day of the month at the current emperor's choice) the poll shall end and a the new emperor will be chosen.

The winning track will then be featured on the Frontpage!




FAQ:

> How should I post my mashup?
Entries are to be posted in the thread using the players in the same way as you would on the main mashstix board (i.e. via Dropbox, hearthis, soundcloud or your own webspace), including details of the tracks used.

> Can I use a mashup that I've made previously?
No, that would be cheating!

> What if there is a tie!?
All ties will be settled by the Emperor (sounds like a worthy title now, doesn't it?)

> I didn't win, what can I do with my mashup?
If you are particularly proud of your mashup but didn't win then feel free to post your mashup in the 'Submit Mashup' section as you ordinarily would.

> What do I do if I'm confused??
PM 'DJ Firth' or another mod if you notice they are active

> So the Emperor get's to choose the next challenge and settle tie breakers, anything else?
The Emperor will attain limitless glory for all of eternity (and bragging rights)

You may joke, but I was legit going to use the cowbell solo from Sinitta's 12" Mo Cowbell Edit of So Macho ;)

A couple of very solid contenders to get us started. Don't let these two scare you away though. You can do this. :1grin: :1grin:

satis5d: Where Have Electric Youth Been [Electro House Remix]
(Debbie Gibson vs. Rihanna)


Debbie Gibson - Electric Youth (Shep's Deep House Mix) [Instrumental]
Debbie Gibson - Electric Youth (Electro Mix) [Instrumental]
Rihanna - Where Have You Been [acapella]

This one has been in the works for about 2 years now. I've been wanting to make an instrumental of the two Electric Youth remixes since they have a very similar sound and I love the bass guitar on Shep's version but I really love the piano solo on the Electro Mix. So, I used this contest opportunity to make it happen. The problem with the Elecric Youth remixes is all of the singing that Debbie does on it. She sounds terrible on this song (IMHO). But by cutting and splicing the two remixes together, the result is a mostly Debbie-free instrumental that bears only passing resemblance to the original version of Electric Youth.

I actually purchased the 12" vinyl maxi version of this one back in 1989 but it's long gone now. Fortunately, I listened to it enough to recall the amazing remixes on that maxi-single.

This may be the fastest 5.5 minutes of your life. If you listen really close, you might even hear a piano solo in there somewhere. Happy listening. :1grin:
