Our Blog on All Things Mashup
As iconic and cross-generational as ABBA‘s music is, it’s a little shocking how under-represented they are in the mashup scene. Sadly, this is simply due to the lack of available source material — the much-coveted acapella and instrumental stems that are the building blocks for any mashup producer.
Other than a few surround sound extractions leaked from a 1981 Dick Cavett television special — which first aired exactly 40 years ago today — the material simply isn’t there. Of course, that hasn’t stopped a few enterprising producers from attempting to mash up the legendary Swedish pop group anyway, and Adriana A has managed to compile the best ones, including a couple bonus tracks featuring ABBA members’ post-breakup work.
