Today I want to share the 70's classic "What's Going On?" by Marvin Gaye remixed live by the Mad Professor. Mad Professor is a dub producer and remix pioneer. Many of the sounds you hear in today's modern electronic music come from this man. Heavy echo, reverb effects, breaks, and warps mixed with traditional instruments and tracks are characteristic of Mad Professor's music. Some people don't see turntables and mixing as a true musical art-form but as this video shows, that's untrue. And for all the haters of remixes of classic songs, I'll just say one thing; it's thanks to our open source culture that classic songs are able to stay alive and accessible today. Thanks to artists like Mad Professor, songs like this ring just as true and relevant today as when they were first recorded. Enjoy. And thanks to Montrey for bringing this video to my attention.
