Just when I thought there is no good new music. All the music we hear today is just sophisticated studio productions or recycled hits with rap vocals or DJs mixing tracks with extra beats and sampled vocals. I have discovered Mashups, I did not discover mashups per se but I discovered them for myself. I doubt you will find Mashups in Music stores even though there are some exceptions that have become mainstream and released as singles and videos because Mashups are individually produced by all sorts of people by mixing their favorite beats with their favorite vocals, resulting in combinations that you never imagined would sound good together but actually sound incredible.

What is a Mashup, well the official definition is:

Bastard pop is a musical genre which, in its purest form, consists of the combination (usually by digital means) of the music from one song with the acapella from another. Typically, the music and vocals belong to completely different genres. At their best, bastard pop songs strive for musical epiphanies that add up to considerably more than the sum of their parts.

Now where can you get your dose of Mashups, well you will find them all over but a few convenient places are at Alta Vista Music search for Mashup or Google Blogsearch.
