Marvin Gaye vs The Pixies – Get It On My Mind

Le mashup ou mash-up (pot-pourri), bastard pop ou vs (versus, dans le sens d’un morceau contre un autre) est un genre musical hybride puisqu’il consiste en l’association, dans un même morceau, de deux ou plusieurs titres existants, généralement les parties vocales d’un morceau sur la musique d’un autre, grâce à un calage de tempo.

Voici Let’s Get it On de Marvin Gaye remixé avec Where’s my Mind? des Pixies par DJ Zebra:

J’aime bien le résultat final, ça rend vraiment bien.

The PeteBox – Where Is My Mind

Cette reprise guitare et beatbox de Where Is My Mind (Pixies) par The PeteBox est absolument géniale:

Juste une guitare, et tout le reste est fait avec sa voix, selon la technique du beatbox (« boîte à rythmes humaine » en anglais), ou « multivocalisme », qui consiste à imiter des instruments en utilisant la voix, principalement les percussions.

C’est un chant a cappella (sans accompagnement instrumental) et qui donne la sensation d’entendre une polyphonie.

The Pixies

Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. Until 2013, the band comprised Black Francis (vocals, rhythm guitar, songwriter), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Kim Deal (bass, backing vocals) and David Lovering (drums).

The band disbanded acrimoniously in 1993, but reunited in 2004. After Deal left in 2013, Pixies hired Kim Shattuck as a touring bassist; she was replaced the same year by Paz Lenchantin, who became a permanent member in 2016.

Pixies are associated with the 1990s alternative rock boom, and draw on elements including punk rock and surf rock. Their music is known for its dynamic “loud-quiet-loud” shifts and song structures.

Francis is Pixies’ primary songwriter; his often surreal lyrics cover offbeat subjects such as extraterrestrials, incest, and biblical violence. They achieved modest popularity in the US, but were more successful in Europe.

Their jarring pop sound influenced acts such as Nirvana, Radiohead, the Smashing Pumpkins and Weezer. Their popularity grew in the years after their break-up, leading to a 2004 reunion and sold-out world tours.
