Lana Del Rey Vs Ace Of Base - Cruel Summertime Sadness

So I was bored one Sat evening waiting for my girlfriend to come home so I made this - I did it in an hour and im no expert - Im not a DJ or anything like that so don't expect professional quality. I was just having a bit of fun to pass the time.

Having said that here it is - enjoy

Interesting pair. :1smiley: I just some small feedback but this gets my recommend.

  • Sometime the vocals slip early or late. I recommend a timing perfection pass.
  • There are also timing flubs with your instrumental at 0:51 an 3:38. The snare doubles and the instrumental pops at the end. I recommend a crossfade or timing fix for quality.

Hi yes - I agree with the pop at the end - this was actually on the orig stem I had and didn't realise until after I had made it
But iv gone in and removed the pop and I will upload version 2 in a min

No more pop but the 0:51 flub still needs some fixin' along with putting the vocals in the pocket. :1smiley:

unfortunately all my orig files are on my gf laptop which I don't have access to right now if they are even still on there - and im no pro at this (its my 2nd mashup and I have no experience what so ever at this) so for the time being im going to leave it as is

hmm im sure the 51sec flub wasnt there on my orig file - I must of copied something by mistake - i'll look into this if I can get the orig files

Thanks for the feedback

All sounds nice to me, except there is a good deal of vocal timing micromanaging I would do here. It's so subtle, but there's just all these spots here and there that could use just a little working to make it 100% fluid.

After years of making this kind of stuff, I have maybe a hyper sensitive ear to this type of thing, so I'll take myself out of the judges box for this one.

Good luck!

At first i didn't recognize the mental as "cruel summer- ace of base"
I almost called out "karaoke" :1lipsrsealed:
However there was something there, and behold.. A Us version :1shocked:
You should probably name the right sources wen you post.. :1huh:
