Edit the Afrojack remix of Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie’s “Moombah,” the CCC remix of Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” and D.I.M. & TAI’s “Lyposuct” into a single cohesive 8 minutes and you’ve got an (admittedly slightly outdated by a few weeks) answer to a question someone has actually asked ///BONES before,
“What is a banger?“
I put this together a bit ago with the intention of clarifying this pressing issue in electronic music. In addition to this, dear readers, I ask you to consider the following question as well in your listening:
“What is a mixtape?”
Do three songs spliced together qualify as a mix, edit, segmented mashup or other? Could we see a trend towards more frequent releases of shorter mixes as a result of how new music is reaching people today? Should someone disable my record function on Traktor before I maim again?
Comment and let us know. Nothing dirtier than a little reader input, readers!
