A great mixer once said: a good mashup is like this :The combination of two classics amount s to more then the mere sum of the parts
By combining two allready great tracks Ben Liebrand made one even greater track. Queen’s We will rock you mashed with Genesis’ Mama. F^cking GREAT! Queenesis was BORN!
Ben’s own description of this mashup:
With a little bit of Bohemian Rapsody at the start.
The minimix combines these two tracks as they have the same BPM and partially also the same tonal key. The combination of these 2 rock classics amount s to more then the mere sum of the parts.
The second part of the “we will rock you” chorus is “instrumental” as the keys of the 2 tracks otherwise would clash.
The minimix was originally made in the Akai DD1000. The 2 tracks were loaded from CD and Queen was slightly time-stretched to match the tempo of Genesis’ Mamma
