We Started Mashing (The Ting Tings Mashup)
I'm back with my first mixtape since "rhyming in rainbows". I must say I was slightly overwhelmed by the reviews and what not it got. Seeing people talk about something I created and showing their appreciation's for my work was a real confidence booster. So I'd like to say thanks to people such as wonky_blog, Boom Bap Hip Hop and Oh, Warfair & Therapy to name a few.
But yeah, the ting tings. So I'd heard their song "Great DJ" quite a bit and had started to hear "That's not my name. At first I was a bit iffy with them but their rather 'unique' sound found its way in to my head. I was at a party a couple weeks back where a friend stuck on their album, "We Started Nothing". As I sat their listening to the album (a lot of which is instrumental) I thought to my self "meh, I could mash up this album". So I did.
Now I must say that this is in no way a Rhyming in Rainbows 2: Electric Boogaloo or anything. I put a lot of work into that mixtape where as this project was, for the most part, just cutting loops and laying the raps over them. But that doesn't mean its a bad mixtape, 'cause it aint. But that's just my opinion... So yeah. The ting tings.....mashed up....with common, mos def, beasties etc etc bla bla. Download and preview below.
