April 2, 2008, would have been Marvin Gaye’s 69th birthday. In honor of that, I wanna try something special.
If you’re a DJ, and if you do remixes and mashups, or if you just fool around with audio software for fun (like me), I invite you to create a remix/mashup of “Sexual Healing,” using the a cappella vocal track from Marvin’s classic cut.
(For 99 cents, you can download a super-high-quality MP3 of this vocal track from Amazon. Follow this link.)
Come April 2, I’ll stream the results on my Vox blog.
I put one together myself, just to test the concept. Click here to listen. I’d much rather hear what a full-time beat mechanic could do with that amazing vocal.
If anybody’s interested, let me know.
