Pharell’s song ‘Happy’ has gotten a lot of media attention and love, it is a massive hit. A Seattle DJ, Dj100proof has release a refined sound for the popular song and we like it.
For the new blend, Dj100proof puts two icons together, the Late Fela Kuti and Pharell Williams. He takes the beat from Fela’s 1977 hit song “Colonial Mentality” of his Opposite People/Sorrow Tears and Blood album and fuses it with Pharell’s new school “Happy” sound to give a new song altogether – “Happy Mentality”.
On his website, Dj100proof remakes, ““Happy” is probably my favorite song of the past year, and I wanted to make a blend that wasn’t too obvious, but made sense upon first listen. I thought the shuffle tempo, driving bass lines and horns of Fela Kuti could provide a nice backdrop, so I chopped up his classic.”
Listen to both songs separately and let us know what you think!
