Twitter: @donfaustino. Audio and video remix / mash-up of K-Pop songs -- Becuase Of You (너 때문에) and The Chaser (추격자) by After School and Infinite, respectively. These two songs were released roughly two and a half years apart, and won #1 in several music shows during its promotions.
Mashup info: Both songs are very beat infused especially in cymbals, paired with terrific melody from piano for Because Of You and whatever The Chaser uses (I can't tell really). In some parts I used the remix version of Because Of You (2010) since it had those guitar sounds that were very Infinite. Both songs are in the key of C, so no adjustments needed there. The only tweaks done were the beat intervals where The Chaser was slightly faster by around 2%. There is also that key shift found on the latter part of The Chaser (a style used on most if not all Infinite and Kara songs) that changes the key to D, so I had to adjust some of Because Of You to match the key shift.
This mashup is very special to me. After School and Infinite are tied for my top 2 favorite idol groups. I've always wanted to create a mashup with their songs. For me this was my best remix project experience yet. I was introduced to K-Pop by the second half of 2009, and Because Of You was one of the first songs I loved - the first song that introduced me to After School as a band. Infinite was the first group that I followed since debut and ever since I knew they'd get far. I wasn't able to finish this earlier since I was too busy with schoolwork and watching Ranking King :D.
Allow me to spaz a bit about my biases. Things that I love with Because Of You/After School and The Chaser/Infinite:
1.) Great songs - timeless, melodic, good use of instruments and very Korean in sentiment (Yes, I find most songs nowadays to be too westernized. These two however are not).
2.) Great choreography - After School and Infinite are great dancers. They do not waste this by having novelty movements. These songs probably have the best choreographies out there.
3.) Small companies - Pledis and Woollim may be starting to branch out now, but compared to other companies they are yet to be considered as a top entertainment company. Thus, when After School and Infinite does well in charts, I find it more impressive since majority of their success are attributed to them as groups. They don't rely much on supportive sunbaes, powerful company influences and huge fanbases.
4.) Great Music Videos - Both music videos have storylines, that I cannot for the life of me understand. Nonetheless, I like it when music videos are story infused, because if not then I might as well settle with live shows or listening to the music. The outfits are great too, they get to wear clothes different from one another. They also get to have solo shots with great settings.
