If I didn’t do this well, I just wouldn’t have anything to do…I can’t cook, and I’d be a terrible housewife.

One of the most amazing parts of music is that everyone can have their own take on it. An artist can take one song and remix it, cover it, sample it, flip it or put it into a mash up, and using the same components make something completely new and different! 

A rap song can inspire a rock artist to cover it, such as Bastille’s "What Would You Do" cover, which puts a whole new feel into a track…

Or a DJ can use sample of a classic song, like Pretty Lights did with Etta Jame’s “Something’s Got A Hold of Me” to create Finally Moving, while Avicii used the same sample to create his number one hit Levels!

And those songs in return inspired even more remixes, and covers, and music!!

The list is never ending, and the energy keeps on flowing, and to me its wonderful to see musicians everywhere inspiring one another to embrace their creativity and have their own take on a song. 

Today I have featured one of my favorite mashups/remix’s “No Diggity vs Thrift Shop” by one of my favorite DJ’s Kygo.  In this mash up, he takes Ed Sheeran’s cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and Passenger’s cover of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”, and creates a whole new track that just makes me want to groove!

Happy friday everyone!!!

The other day one of my friends enlightened me with the news that the lead singer of Frightened Rabbit, Scott Hutchison, has started his own project called Owl John.

"The process has to be different, otherwise I’m just going to make a Frightened Rabbit-sounding record, which I really don’t want to do." - Hutchison

So although the the sound is very different than that of Frightened Rabbit, the project is still amazing and definitely worth a listen. 

I have decided to share with you my favorite track of his called “Red Hand”

Cheers!
