Mashups are one of those very touchy subjects in the industry. When done right, they can capture magic in a bottle and bring together some unique sounds that were never paired together before. When done wrong, they can make the listener cringe and curse the composer for even messing with the sacred nature of the original artists. Pretty Lights, the American electronic artist and DJ who entered the mainstream scene at 2010’s Coachella and Ultra music festivals, has put together a mashup of three of the most influential bands of all time. Check out the Pretty Lights remix of Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead- ya, he went big!
Tell us what you think of this mashup in the comments below. I’m not one for the technique, but Pretty Lights has done some great work in the past, and the subtle nature he took to this work allows it be enjoyable. Is it a success or failure in your ears?
