A Mid Temp Mash Up
Keri Hilson’s Energy was DJ Topsider’s choice of vocal for his mash up, Memory. Energy may not be known to many outside of the urban scene so let me give you some background.
Energy was Keri’s debut single from her album, In A Perfect World. It was suppose to launch Keri into the pop light but instead it took her next single, Turnin’ Me On with Lil Wayne, to break through the music clutter.
While Turnin’ Me On was fun and flirty, Energy was about relationships not working. I guess fun always wins for debut singles (page out of Eminem’s book) so it doesn’t surprise me that Turnin’ Me On made a bigger splash.
Keri Hilson – Turnin’ Me On
Energy’s pop, r&b and dance feel was underrated for the commercial masses. It played half slow jam and the other half dance to make it a perfect mid tempo track with a lot of heart.
What’s even cooler is Dj Topsider decided to lay it down and mash it up with RL’s Grime. It still plays as a mid temp track but the bass hits harder.
I’ve always liked Keri’s Energy and this one takes a fresh approach to an already great track. It’s very welcomed. Excellent touch Topsider.
DJ Topsider – Memory (Keri Hilson x Kanye West x Hook N Sling x RL Grime’s Neat)
All Keri Hilson lyrics are from here her lead single:
Keri Hilson – Energy
Lookin’ good Keri. Makes me want to go gyming.
RL Grime – Neat
Here’s the mash up’s base from RL Grime.
Kanye West – Mercy ft. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz (Explicit)
I think Kanye’s part comes in with the ‘Okay’s’.
NERVO & Hook N Sling – Reason (Official Music Video)
And no idea when N Sling creeps in.
