Peter Gabriel - Steam [acapella]
So after my long run of mashup mayhem (which taught me a lot) I was now starting to get a handle on my new mashup tool, Pro Tools | First. (Thanks, in part, to some one-on-one coaching from Happy Cat Disco.)
This one started out as a three-source mash with 30 Seconds To Mars, Closer To The Edge acapella in there as well (titled, Closer To The Steamy Laundry). But it was better as an A+B. Most of the mashups I've made from this point on are quality pieces that I still enjoy and that I expect to enjoy for the rest of my life. While far from perfect, a corner was definitely turned at this point. I guess you could say I upgraded to version 2.0 with this mashup.
The instrumental dub was an unexpected blessing to find, and as soon as I discovered it I was off to the races with this one since I knew I wanted to mash Steam with it. The cover art is one of the first (if not the first) of many that I found on my favorite cover art source, deviantart.com. This cover also is the first to "hide" the turned satis5d artist name. From here on in I usually try to make the name not be too prominent on the covers. It's my of saying that it's about the music, not the artist.
