No. 1 - Suit & TIE Fighters: There has been an Awakening, have you felt it?

From conception to final product, it took me over a year and a half to put together this mashup which, like so many great things in my life, began as a pun. 

Granted there were times when I took off weeks and months from working on this mix, but I always gravitated back to it. For whatever reason I became obsessed with fitting together as many Justin Timberlake and Star Wars songs as I could; it wasn't so much that I wanted to as much as I couldn't NOT do it. You would think that by now I'd be sick of both JT and Star Wars, but the opposite has happened and I now have a greater, almost spiritual, appreciation of both. 

I don't regret the countless hours I spent on this one single mashup. The technical and creative skills that I gained throughout this simultaneously frustrating and inspiring process have geared me up for another, even more ambitious idea, which I've had for even longer than Suit & TIE Fighters: to create and share one new music mashup every week, indefinitely. I have felt for a long time that I am one of the best in the world at this alchemic, quirky, and controversial artform and I think it's about time I prove it.

Below you'll find every source material that I used to create the eight and half minutes found in Suit & TIE Fighters, along with my disclaimer. Thanks a ton for reading, watching, and listening, and keep on the lookout, I've got so much more to come.
