I teased you with this post a few weeks ago… now, let ‘s make it official! it is about mashups and a movie wich starts today in the US… so now I can talk about it. and yes, I am very proud of this one.
so here’s the whole story. back in november last year, I recieved a very surprising e-mail from one of the sony pictures music supervisors with huge news in it. I was actually officially asked by sony pictures to re-do one of my mashup (can’t stand beggin’ / the police vs. madcon) for adam sandler’s new movie called "just go with it". I couldn’t believe it but hey, damned, it was true! also the loriginal artists labels involved in my mashup agreed with sony and so I had to rebuild the whole song with the original high-quality stems from police and madcon wich I recieved very quickly. it was pure fun, and now my mashup is in a hollywood movie… just awesome, still can’t believe it. sometimes the motivation you need in your life just comes to you through mysterious ways.
thanks to everyone at sony pictures – very nice people – and especially thanks to mister adam sandler himself who loves mashups, and that’s a fact. I also just want to thank partyben and lobsterdust for their help, kevin for the translations and many thanks to RJ the sound engineer (at TMD munich) for his help on the final mixing (and especially on the de-essing!) . and now just check it out, fellaz: the movie is funny and well casted: adam sandler, jennifer aniston, nicole kidman, brooklyn decker and dave matthews! and if you listen carefully, you also should detect a few mashups from other collegues in it.
and finally, I’ll have one more glass of that wonderful champagne. yeah, thanks.
now this is definitely not a kind of joke, just listen to adam sandler talking about the mashups in his movie (and where he discovered mashups!) at the Jimmy Kimmel show last wednesday (09.02):
here’s the movie trailer, featuring another great mashup artist, partyben, with his "tender umbrella" (general public vs. rihanna) mashup!
by the way, the movie will start in germany on february, the 24th (Meine Erfundene Frau) and in france on march, the 23rd (Le Mytho).
and here’s my mashup (old version) – for some legal reasons I can’t give you the "new" one!
