I’m not usually one for mashups, but when they’re good – they’re really fucking good. And Terry Urban is undoubtedly one of the best mashup artists out there.
A few weeks ago, he put out a sneek preview of a new mashup – Video Girl Dreams, sending us into a flurry of excitement because it was so damn awesome – particularly because it came with the news that a full album was to follow. And today, on the anniversary of Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G‘s death, Urban has uploaded a complete eight-track album mashing up Biggie with girl-of-the-moment, FKA Twigs.
Combining Biggie’s brash flow and sordid rhymes with Twigs’ deep, sensual beats and her falsetto melodies as backing loops, it’s actually crazy how well these sounds work together.
