Fabricating that special magic when you first hear a track is something rare and I make sure people have that amazing feeling whenever they listen to a Carlos Serrano mashup.
The 24(/23?)-yr-old Mexican-American genius DJ is from San Diego who specializes in doing mash-ups. Any more personal information is not known since nothing irrelevant about his music is revealed from his facebook and twitter pages (after all, it is all about the music!), but here’s an in-depth interview I’ve found if you want to know more about him.
When I first came upon his mash-up of The xx & Kanye West, I knew immediately, “This guy is gonna be
I’m trying to right my wrongs,
But it’s funny them same wrongs helped me write this song
Carlos Serrano definitely holds true to his word – after listening to his newer mash-ups, you can feel the hardwork and passion seeping in, as NOT only is it magical that a mash-up can manage to sound completely new, it is even amazing that it ends up sounding better than the original songs!
Here are my personal favourites of his:
Now when they see us on the streets,
All they wanna do is take pics,
And I’m like, “okay, okay”
What did you give me to make my heart beat out of my chest?
How he move in a room full of no’s?
How he stay faithful in a room full of hoes?
There is nothing but love I have for this guy. I wish to see more of your work soon and I wish you luck on your venture towards original productions!
