I admit it: I was in a rut.
It wasn’t that I couldn’t think of ideas, I just couldn’t think of any where the sources were available or good enough for me to use. When I finally decided to complete this idea (which I had in mind for at least a few weeks), the same glitch which affected my first James Brown mashup affected this one.
After the work I put into making an instrumental of “Super Bad”, I came very close to putting this mashup idea on the back burner. Once I restarted it, however, the completion process was like slicing butter with a hot knife.
