Guess what the Pharrell & Daft Punk track “Gust of Wind” makes a great mashup with? “Gust of Wind” by Pharrell & Daft Punk.
I discovered this by accident when I happened to play the song twice on my computer, but several seconds apart. Purely by chance, the two simultaneous streams were synced on the beat and I loved it. I’m not a mashup maker, but this seemed like a pretty easy thing to try and remix for fun, so I did! Take a listen and let me know what you think.
Please note this is only intended as a fair-use remix and not to be sold. I highly recommend you purchase the G I R L album yourself, because it’s all fantastic :)
If you’re curious, here’s how I recreated my accidental effect:
The original track plays by itself for the first verse, then at the start of second verse section (00:41) the same track starts over again in sync with the first one. (I shift the first track slightly to the right channel at that point and bring the new one in on the left channel at a hair under volume to increase the effect slightly if you’re listening on headphones.) The original track runs out around 04:26, at which point the second track continues by itself to the end.
I think it’s fascinating how well the pattern of verses against chorus work so well over each other, especially when the bridge of the first track comes in. It’s proof just how much these talented producers know their stuff when it comes to structuring a song. Enjoy!
