Who Doesn't love a music MASHUP?!?!?
What is a music mashup I hear you ask? And how does that relate to Modern Jive?
A music mash-up, in a nutshell, is where 2 or more pieces of music/songs are blended together to form a new piece of music. Technically, the music should be overlaid or mixed up so that fragments from all songs are in the new piece in a non-sequential way.
In Modern Jive our music mash ups are more like medleys of songs that can either be pieces of music that increase or decrease in tempo or perhaps medleys of songs from different genres. Occasionally we get excited and mix different speeds AND different genres... so much fun to be had... he he he
