So a while ago, I did a post about the importance of PROPERLY LABELING YOUR TRACKS. Here comes another unfortunate example. I say unfortunate, because this MASHUP is great!
I stumbled upon this artists Soundcloud page late one night and discovered this mash. It’s killer, but I’ve long forgotten what the artists name was, and they haven’t bothered to give me a clue. You will notice that the only info on this track is the word “ZockOn”. This, ofcourse, should be two words. It refers to the instrumental in this megamash, which is from the song, ZOCK ON!, by TERIYAKI BOYZ. Check out the video for the original below.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cLb9f20BqM]
Since, I can’t tell you anything about the mashup artist, I will atleast link you to the originals of the other songs featured in the mash.
I don’t know what the RnB vocal is towards the end of the track. CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME OUT???
I realize that this track may just be a happy accident by some kid dicking around on Ableton. Maybe the artist doesn’t give a crap about this track and just did it for fun an put it up on Soundcloud to amuse their friends or just for the hell of it. If that is the case, then fair enough. However, if YOU are a mashup artist looking to gain more exposure for your productions, make sure that you CREDIT YOURSELF AND THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS who’s work you borrowed from.
