MASHUP: ADELE + DAFT PUNK
by levina | March 8, 2012
Earlier this week, while buried under a pile of papers, exams, and presentation slides, I decided that I would, at no point before Friday, be happy. I was wrong.
A friend of mine just sent me Carlos Serrano‘s mashup of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” and Daft Punk’s “Something About Us” and made my day. The 2001 Daft Punk classic is one of my favorite tracks of all time, and Serrano’s funky downtempo mix does it pretty good justice.
After hearing “Something About the Fire,” I went straight out to Serrano’s SoundCloud and found some more gems. “Touch the Sky” mixes Kanye with The xx’s “Intro,” another one of my favorite tracks.
While I’m a bit shady on the harmonies on this mix, it was one of Serrano’s first attempts, and it looks like he’s only been getting better over the past year. Check out some more of his tracks here.
