[new] [mashup] Raye – “Natalie Don’t” and Gloria Gaynor – “I Will Survive”

I was listening to “Natalie Don’t” by Raye and wondering what is was about it that sounded so darned familiar. Then it hit me: it has the same chord progression as “I Will Survive.” When I noticed that they’re in the same key and only a few BPM off from each other, I figured this was no accident. So I whipped up a mashup on the ol’ computer. I used the instrumental version of “I Will Survive” and whipped up a quick and dirty a cappella version of “Natalie Don’t” on the computer using RX 8 by iZotope. Enjoy.

[new] Buscabulla – “NTE” (94bpm Amin)

Groovy wallpaper to put on while you do some house cleaning or invite friends over for chips and dip. “NTE” stands for “No Te Equivoques” which means, “Don’t get it wrong.” I like the video too. They’re performing right along the water. It reminds me of when I was in Cozumel watching a band play at this bar. Here’s a pic:

Turns out it was shot in Aquadilla, Puerto Rico, not far from Cozumel. I guess the warm waters of the Caribbean make a nice backdrop for a band.

[new] Jesse & Joy – Alguien Más (94bpm Amin)

This record is almost reggaeton. The beat technically qualifies as such, but thankfully it bears no other resemblance. I like how this record is put together. The violin part is its signature and it works well. Normally, I don’t really care about the music video either way, but someone put a lot of effort into this one and the results are really beautiful.
