How soon is independence? Mashup time!

How soon is independence? Mashup time!
June 17, 2010 TEAM POPBYTES

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the return of Mark Vidler (aka Go Home Productions) back into the world of making mashups. As one of the genius original pioneers of the bootleg scene, we hope he never decides to retire again! So it’s with much excitement we present another new gem from GHP, and as is his usual style, he’s able to take two songs from disparate genres and make them sound like a marriage made in heaven. And I’m thrilled he decided to use Destiny’s Child‘s Independent Women, a song that got mashed many times upon its release, and was pretty much the song that sent Beyoncé and the group into the pop stratosphere. On the other end, he uses one of most iconic songs of the early 80’s – The SmithsHow Soon Is Now. Throw in some extra funky beats, and ya’ll be throwin’ your hands up at me – and him! This comes from his brand spanking new Berlin EP, which you can grab here.
