The Vinyl Frontier: Mashups from Outer Space

Beat-Boot-Ique has released a new compilation album featuring two tracks of mine. This one is based on Science Fiction or Space Music in it's broadest interpretations, featuring mashups, remixes, new material and totally reconstructed tracks.
New for BBI releases is that this is the first album that was reviewed by a prerelease team so that the overall quality of the album could be raised before final release.
The album has an excellent flow and feels like those old concept albums, which is quite an achievement considering that all contributors where working separately on their tracks, proving that the use of this pre-release team succeeded in creating a homogenic album, instead of a collection of loosely themed, but separate tracks.
The album has been mastered by Celebrity Murder Party and he did a fine job on that.

Everyone who has an interest in spacey songs and soundscapes should give this album a listen.

Two Summer Tunes

With the summer not really getting in full swing I decided to make some summer tracks. One new, and one which was featured on the summer booty compilation a while ago.

The new one:

Who's Your Liar:
Beyonce & Shakira - Beautiful Liar (spanglish version)
Daddy Yankee - Who's Your Daddy

(click on the divshare logo to download the mp3)

I made this one for my wife who's totally into reggaeton and Beyonce and Shakira

The old one (though remastered, the vocal should be better in the mix and a recurring click at the end has been removed)

Drop It Like It's Chichi:
Snoop Dogg: Drop It Like It's Hot
Chichi Peralta - Un Día Más

Both tracks have some imperfections but I think are still enjoyable, it's up to you to decide.
