Hall & Oates meet hip hop with ‘Ballin’ Oates’ mixtape

Ballin’ Oates is the newest mixtape from The Melker Project (Skeetwood Mac, The Skeetles) and it features Hall & Oates mashed up with hip hop. Scott Melker wrote us about the first track in which he brought Wu-Tang into the mix:

To create this track, I fully deconstructed and remixed “Maneater” by Hall & Oates by replaying the different parts of the track. I effectively created a new version of the entire song, with new horns, a new beat etc. and then mashed up my remix with “C.R.E.A.M..” This took an incredible amount of time to accomplish, so hopefully you will hear the effort! I actually replicated this process for every track on the EP, in an effort to focus more heavily on my remix skills, and less on the mashup aspect of what I do.

We have to say the results came out great. Listen below:
