[FP] Macaren-a-Boo (Destiny's Child + Los Del Rio) restruct

Los Del Rio - Macarena (instrumental)

Thanks MashGyver for your recommend on version 5
I worked on the structure and made two cuts in the second half @2:05 and @3:05 and took out repetitive parts of the mental and used as many 'different' :1wink: LDL-parts as possible.
This lost the laughing break and the Garu-comment on the mental and the phone-stalking to Beyonce. The original outro, with the unfortunate hiccup at the end, is now back.
I hope you (MashGyver) stand by your recommend on the new version.

version 6:

download-version-6-pasted-and-cut

Thanks Satis5d and HCD for your comments on version 4.
I tried to improve the structure and re-used part [0:14 - 1:09,5] twice, both now with 'you make me wanna.." on top.
I hear some new, fun combinations between vocal and music now.
Cut off the mental at the laughing break, and added a (voice over artist and comedian) Garry Owens jingle 'did I irritate you ?'. The vocoder sounds a bit like a telephone line, like the stalker is calling her to ask.

version 5:

No Flash Installed


download-version-5-with-repeats

================
older versions to compare (if you really really want)
version 4:
After Crossability's correct remarks on structure and vocal placement on some of my other mashups, I reviewed this mashup myself and made a new version, with also small timing adjustments. Gave the outro-vocal some delay that wasn't in version 3.

Crossability's remarks on two of my other mashups got me thinking on this one as well, and I moved the vocal to the front, for a better fit. New version is in O.P.

It's not that it's bad, or that there's even anything really wrong with this mix. I just don't like it very much. Sorry. :1undecided:

I sort of agree with Satis5d but I do like it. The issue is there is not break in the instrumental progression to complement the vocals.

I saw some light at the end of the tunnel (no, not the approaching train :1cheesy: ) when HCD talked about break/complement parts, so I changed the structure.
The 'you make me wanna" part is now on the same mental part and some other vocal parts fit better as well.
please tell me what you think.

Definitely not my favorite of your CVS, but it works. The Macarena instrumental is so dang repetitive, but you’ve at least done something with it here. I wonder if there’s a remix out there that you could use to pepper in some additional pieces of flair. :1undecided:

I will give it my blessing, though.

Mashgyver, thanks for the recommend.
I agree the mental is very 'steady', in order to allow drunk people all over the world to 'dance' (I am struggling for words :1rolleyes: ) to it. So I worked on the mental again.
In version 5. like you noticed, I reused the first part to make 'you make me wanna' fit better and consistent.
In version 6 I cut out repetitive parts in the last half to use more of the different breaks and synths of the mental. This lost the laughing break and ending sample, but re-entered the original mental-outro.

Version 6 has the perfect flow and doesn't seem repetitive to me at all. Great that you kept improving this one! :1cool:
