I don’t really have anything to say about these. To listen to them directly, click on the links on the left sidebar. And this isn’t really an album but rather a collection of mashups I’ve already put up, so apologies for the varying quality and volume levels.

I am working on an album though. I’m afraid I’m scratching the proposed H!P-COMPLETE album project (it’s way too old already), and doing a Buono!-themed album instead, titled Buonissimo!. I also have a Koha album and more general albums in the works. Stay tuned.

The latest batch

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-04-26

Eight new mashups to munch on…

SOME BOYS! Bye Bye Bye! — °C-ute × Goto Maki

I’ve used “SOME BOYS! TOUCH” as a backing track before, for one of my very first mashups, but it never gets old.

THE MADAYADEPOWER!!! — Berryz Koubou × Morning Musume.

I never liked “THE Manpower!!!”. I still don’t. But it’s a little more interesting now.

FoRever in youR Eyes — °C-ute × Tommy february⁶

This one was a bit tricky since “FOREVER LOVE” has parts in both major and minor scales. 😦 So I had to turn the minor verses into major verses. It was partly successful, I think. Also a little weird.

CHE.R.RY wa NS — YUI × Kira☆Pika

“Futari wa NS” is one of my favorite all-time H!P songs. Yayz.

Furusato Hanabi — Morning Musume. × Watarirouka Hashiritai

“Furusato” like you’ve never heard it before! Now you can rock out to it! *dances*

GET UP! BOY — SALT5 × Buono!

I just love twice-tempo mixes. Here’s another one.

Sougen no Warp! — Buono! × Matsuura Aya

I love half-tempo mixes too. They’re usually hard to do because there’s often audible instrumental residue. But this was a clean vocal rip, so yayz. And Buono! needs to do more ballads.

MY BOYFRIEND — Buono! × Fujimoto Miki

And of course I love Buono! … and awesome titles.

The K!☆Mix Kollection — Volume 5!

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-03-30

It’s been only a month and a half since Volume 4, but VOLUME 5 of The K!☆Mix Kollection has arrived!

(For previous volumes, see Volumes 1–3 and Volume 4.)

Volume 5 can be downloaded here (192 kbps).

The K!☆Mix Kollection

Volume 5
1 Chocolate no Moufu AKB48 × Matsuura Aya
2 Iroppoi Kamo Morning Musume. × Morning Musume.
3 BINGAO! Matsuura Aya × AKB48
4 Suna wo Kamu You ni… OLALA Matsuura Aya × Tsukishima Kirari starring Kusumi Koharu (Morning Musume.)
5 Watarasenegai Matsuura Aya × Perfume
6 Shugo Shugo! Cha Cha Cha! Mini Moni. × Shugo Chara Egg!
7 Okashi Wonderland no Kisetsu (°C-ute + Mini Moni.) × Shugo Chara Egg!
8 ♥Lonely in Twilight♥ Morning Musume. × Tommy february⁶
9 FIRST KISS ni Sachi Are Aa! × Morning Musume.
10 Love to Yuki is forever Tanpopo × Tommy february⁶
11 je t’aime ★ je t’aime SEXY GUY Goto Maki × Tommy february⁶
12 Kaeritakunatta GOGO ikimono-gakari × MilkyWay
13 Rakuten Eagles ga Jama wo Suru GAM × AKB48
14 LU LU LU no Inori GAM × Mano Erina
15 Hatehatena no Waltz Hanasaki Cobeni starring Kikkawa Yuu × Eco Moni.
16 Seishun HEAVEN Yaguchi Mari × Perfume

 

New mixes since last post include:

Kaeritakunatta GOGO — ikimono-gakari × MilkyWay

This one has its moments. Largely a failure. Oh well.

Rakuten Eagles ga Jama wo Suru — GAM × AKB48

Probably the most natural-sounding artificial key change in my remixing history (there’s no key change in “Daisuki Rakuten Eagles”). Those are hard to pull off; they often end up crackly or Chipmunk’d. Yay for Melodyne!

LU LU LU no Inori — GAM × Mano Erina

A tearjerker and one of my personal favorites. “LU LU LU” has never sounded so sad and hopeless before. Too bad the vocal rip was a mess. 😦 *shakes fist at UFW*

Hatehatena no Waltz — Hanasaki Cobeni starring Kikkawa Yuu × Eco Moni.

My first 3/4-time mashup. (H!P very rarely releases any non-4/4 time songs.) Quality isn’t too great for various reasons, lack of an instrumental being one of them. It’s a shame neither of the artists represented were ever given their own single and instead had to piggyback on releases featuring other artists. (The linguist in me is screaming at the grammatical weirdness of that last sentence. Ahem.)

Seishun HEAVEN — Yaguchi Mari × Perfume

Yaguchi’s vocals are a bit too much for this song.

Next

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-03-03

A few more since last post…

Shugo Shugo! Cha Cha Cha! — Mini Moni. × Shugo Chara Egg!

Everybody’s favorite cracktastic 4-nin kiddie group meets everybody’s other favorite cracktastic 4-nin kiddie group. Cracktastic galore.

Okashi Wonderland no Kisetsu — (°C-ute + Mini Moni.) × Shugo Chara Egg!

And again, with some extra °C-ute thrown in.

♥Lonely in Twilight♥ — Morning Musume. × Tommy february⁶

I never really liked “Kanashimi Twilight” … but this version is awesome. Not posted to YouTube because Defstar Records will undoubtedly invoke the much-dreaded DMCA-hammer and possibly have my entire account revoked. For the record, I’m not buying anything from Defstar again.

FIRST KISS ni Sachi Are — Aa! × Morning Musume.

I never really liked “FIRST KISS” either … but now it’s got a beat.

Love to Yuki is forever — Tanpopo × Tommy february⁶

The title only makes grammatical sense if ‘to’ is interpreted as an English preposition.

je t’aime ★ je t’aime SEXY GUY — Goto Maki × Tommy february⁶

Semi-requested by Mars. I had the toughest time with this one. It was practically impossible to get a decent vocal rip out of “Uwasa no SEXY GUY” … this was the best I could do. It still has audible instrumental residue; hopefully it’s not distracting.

Revitalizing Ayaya

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-02-21

I’m on a mission to revitalize Ayaya’s ballads and make them exciting…

BINGAO! — Matsuura Aya × AKB48

“Egao” with twice the tempo (exactly — what a coincidence).

Suna wo Kamu You ni… OLALA — Matsuura Aya × Tsukishima Kirari starring Kusumi Koharu (Morning Musume.)

For all the Kohaters who can’t stand Koha’s voice … try Ayaya’s voice instead. Another twice-tempo mix.

Watarasenegai — Matsuura Aya × Perfume

My Perfume mixes are always easy to make. Like “Hajimari no Fighter”, this one also took 20 minutes.

And I’ve also posted the following mixes since last post.

Chocolate no Moufu — AKB48 × Matsuura Aya

Mmm… chocolate blanket. Yum.

Iroppoi Kamo — Morning Musume. × Morning Musume.

Title translates to “sexy … maybe”. Requested by Vee.

Also, I now have an RSS widget thingy on the left column … you can access my latest mixes directly. Enjoy.

The K!☆Mix Kollection — Volume 4

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-02-11

Since the last post, I’ve posted a number of new mashups to my audio repository

Ki ga Happy Birthday — NEWS × Matsuura Aya

Yes, this is a Johnny’s × H!P mix, requested by misa. I’m afraid I’m not much of a Johnny’s fan. None of their music have grabbed me yet, but who knows? Send me any recommendations you might have … they might end up being mashed with H!P.

Kimagure Ready? — Tommy heavenly⁶ × ikimono-gakari

My first completely non-H!P mix. Alas, this and my two previous Tommy mixes were DMCA’d and taken down from YouTube, by the request of Defstar Records, Inc. I think remixes are fair use, but I don’t really have the resources to fight this in court, and I don’t really care that much anyway. In my opinion, their actions (including taking down pretty much everything that makes use of Tommy february⁶, Tommy heavenly⁶, and the brilliant green recordings) is doing them more harm than good. I happen to own 13 Tf6, Th6, and tbg CDs, and none of them would have been purchased had I not encountered Tommy by chance on YouTube during the summer of 2007. But anyway … these three mixes will still be up here, unless Defstar finds out about them as well.

Planetaria — Otsuka Ai × ikimono-gakari

Requested by pengie. This is my first mashup of two songs having the same title: “Planetarium”. The backing track has been upshifted two semitones.

Tamago love — Shugo Chara Egg! × Perfume

I seem to having good results with Shugo Chara Egg! × Perfume mashups. This one’s also a polyphonic mix preserving the original Perfume vocals from “Puppy love”. They make pleasant background vocals, I think. I can’t wait for Shugo! Shugo! to come out.

Happy☆Happy Summerday Wedding! — Morning Musume. × Tsukishima Kirari starring Kusumi Koharu (Morning Musume.)

It’s always nice to have tracks that match in key, tempo, and title. This pair even have the same exact key change. Amazing coincidence.

FREE Chocolate — Matsuura Aya × ERIKA

Another amusingly titled mashup. I want free chocolate … ^_^

All of these, along with those remixes released since the previous three volumes of The K!☆Mix Kollection are now available here:

[Insert awesome title here…]

Posted by Kirarin☆Snow ☃ on 2009-01-23

Three more remixes!

L·O·V·E·L·Y ~Yume Miru Namida Iro — Matsuura Aya × Tommy february⁶
Resonant SCREAM+ — Morning Musume. × Tommy heavenly⁶
Hajimari no Fighter — Shugo Chara Egg! × Perfume

L·O·V·E·L·Y ~Yume Miru Namida Iro~ is especially fitting since Ayaya and Tommy were my introductions to J-pop back in July 2007. I’d heard a few J-pop songs before that, but these two really had me hooked… 😀

Resonant SCREAM+ has a more sensible title than “Resonant Blue”, methinks. And it is quite an appropriate title for this piece.

Hajimari no Fighter has been on repeat on my computer for the last several hours. It took me about 20 minutes to make. I haven’t been keeping track, but this is probably among those mixes that took me the least time to produce. It’s nice when you can get an awesome-sounding mashup with minimal tweaking.

In other news, I’ve started uploading to YouTube again. I stopped doing so last June because I got tired of making videos and uploading them. But now I have a script that takes in an audio file, generates a video for it, and uploads it to YouTube all in one go! No browser or video editor needed. 😀 Really convenient. I should make it upload to Mediafire and my audio repository at the same time, too.
