Venus at Seventeen
(Bananarama vs. Stevie Nicks)
Bananarama - Venus [remix instrumental]
Stevie Nicks - Edge of Seventeen [acapella]
Definitely one of my better mashups from early 2017, I took the 12" Extended Version and the Dub Version of Venus and paired it up with the acapella from Stevie Nicks. The timing was very tricky with this one, but once I heard the tracks lock during production I knew that this one had great potential. At 7 minutes and about 45 seconds long it's one of my longest mashups. I subtitled this one an "Extended Dance Mashup" (but I failed to include the subtitle on the cover art.) The girl on the cover is Stevie Nicks, back when she was much younger.
This was submitted as the third of my three submissions for the 80's Mashed Volume 4 Compilation. At the premiere of 80's Mashed 4 on March 28, 2017, the online DJ, DJ Joker, commented that of the 58 songs in the three albums of this compilation, he considered this one to be his favorite. I was very honored, because there were a lot of great mashups in that set.
It's also the first mashup for which I created my own video.
