No. 4 - Earth, Wind & Remember: Dancing in September
Normally I don't like to work with super new songs for a lot of reasons: the stem quality is usually poor, lots of other DJs and producers make remixes, bootlegs, and mashups with the new material, listeners experience fatigue, the big music labels might be more prone to take down your work, etc. But Justin Bieber's new hit "What Do You Mean?" is the perfect twilight-of-summer track, and combined with Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" it makes a perfect mix for the beginning of autumn. The hardest part was filling in the second verse. I didn't want to just play the Bieber verse and none of the "September" parts sounded right. I went through and tried Ariana Grande, Ja Rule, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, and others but the one that worked best and fit in with the greater vibe of the track was Kanye's "Touch the Sky," which is also my all time favorite Kanye song. I'm very pleased with the result and I hope you like it too. Sources below, I'll catch ya next week!
