System of a Down + Coolio = “Gangsta’s Aerials” Mash-up
After years and years of mash-ups that combine seemingly disparate styles of music into allegedly “zany” new combinations, why do we all continue to be entertained by these? I don’t have an answer, but I’d reckon there’s something about hearing music you know so well in a different form that tickles the neurons, and hearing two of those at the same time doubles the effect.
Whatever the reason, William Maranci, whose mash-ups we’ve covered a ton, is back with another: System of a Down’s “Aerials” with Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” (the latter of which, it should be noted, was based on a sample from Stevie Wonder’s “Pastime Paradise”). Go on and give it a spin below for a brief distraction on this fine Friday afternoon.
