Phil Collins meets hip hop in ‘Trill Collins’ mixtape

Scott Melker previously scorched the internet by mashing up classic artists like Fleetwood Mac and Hall & Oates with hip hop, and now he adds Phil Collins to the list. From Scott:

I’ve been obsessed with Phil Collins since I was a “Young Melker,” and have always wanted to tackle his catalogue. The task was daunting, as a number of Phil’s songs are basically rock/pop perfection, particularly “In The Air Tonight.”

For each song, I started by replaying all of the individual instruments with updated sounds and synths. I used these new sounds to remix the tracks, and later reincorporated samples from the original Phil Collins songs. After all of this was done, I mashed up my new versions with appropriate vocals. In the case of “Invisible Touch” I decided to do a straight up remix with the vocal being the only element of the original track.
