Unreal Volume


Unreal Volume
Yello - Unreal
MARRS - Pump Up The Volume
4:26 / 320 kbps

After my summer vacation, and before I was able to get back to producing the next mash-up track for my movie soundtrack series, I was tempted and seduced into producing this mash-up track for Sound-Unsound's 80's Mashed 2 compilation project.

Some of you may recognize pieces of this track from a second version of my very first mash-up production, Thinking About Pumping Up the Volume (Touched by Love Unreal Mix). I was never happy with that version, as it sounded like two different songs mixed like a DJ mix instead of a mash-up, and some vocals just seemed to be slapped in between other vocals.

So this was an opportunity to take an old idea and give it a proper mash-up production. And, unlike my first production, I made use of the original MARRS sample pack to produce this track, which allowed me to do a few different things with those sources, and it provided me with a little more control over the final sound.

80's Mashed 2 Compilation

Sound-Unsound has just released their new mash-up compilation project, 80's Mashed 2, containing 54 tracks totalling almost 4 hours of mash-up music. As hinted by the title of the project, each mash-up track contains one or more tunes from the euphonious 80's.

The first song leading this huge pack of tracks is Unreal Volume by yours truly, where sources from MARRS and Yello mix it up to kick things off with an 80's house rhythm.

You can grab more details, track listings, previews, and download links from the project host site at
