DJ Masa and SHIMMixes recently unveiled their 2013 megamix. It’s a nice piece of work to close your sets on. Be sure to pimp out the DJ Masa and SHIMMixes names when you drop it though, the duo deserve a lot of credit of this work. Unfortunately, for the DJs who want to take sections of the medley into their mix, the the song isn’t a constant tempo throughout to be ready to adjust that pitch as you’re beatmatching.
The dynamic duo had the following to say on their joint production:
With the first part being managed by SHIMMixes, and the second one being managed by [DJ Masa], we successfully put together a 6-minute piece containing nothing but pure catchiness, and k-pop awesomeness!
Living in opposite parts of the globe, we managed to work it through, so it is definitely safe to say that Music makes ONE!
The two mashup artists are each worth following in their own right. DJ Masa has largely been attributed as the pioneer of making the Kpop megamix a thing; and inspired a number of other kpop mashup producers to make similar attempts. We also recommend watching SHIMMixes’ own year end mix, which we’ve shown below, as well as his other productions found on his Youtube page.
Was 2013 a good year for Kpop? What do you think?
