Don't Call It A Comeback!

I've secretly been working on a collection of Amiga / Hip-Hop mashup tracks.

There is still plenty of work to do, but since today is International Amiga Day, I wanted to share one that is closer to completion.

HYBRIS SAID KNOCK YOU OUT

It may not be for everyone, but please let me know what you think!

I have to say, despite that I dont like too much from that Hip Hop style (dont hate but dont like either), I have to say, that was one of the best retro remakes I have heard and if I would be more into Hip Hop, I am sure I would be listening that song for many times already.

Although not my type of music I can appreciate the work that has gone into it. Very good work.

That sounds nothing short of bloody brilliant!

What do you use to put it together? Cubase? Reason? Audacity? ProTracker??

I lucked out when I purchased a used MacbookPro for graphic design. It came loaded with design software as well as Logic Pro. Being a creative kinda guy, I decided to try learning how to make and mix sounds. I've been experimenting and learning for about two years now.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I've got many other Amiga / Rap mashup tracks in the works. I hope to eventually release them all together as one single project.

For me, as a kid in the late 80's / early 90's - playing my favorite Amiga games co-existed with listening to rap on MTV. It's a strange combination, I know, but it seems to work.

Also, here is a [ Show youtube player ]version of the song.

This is not usually my type of music but I liked it and remember some of the tunes that were on either boot disks or in games although I can't put my finger on them, pretty good mix all the same

Did you also hear the song that came after this one ended "Out of my !!!!!!! mind" I liked that too, totally unexpected

I find Eazy-E hilarious and awesome at the same time. Sadly, there are very few 'acapella' choices out on the internet, and the ones available are all low quality.
