I will try to refrain from making the joke, but I can't, "fucking N.A.S.A., how does it work?" Really though, I've never googled how they made it work. It's an album where everyone who is anyone in music recorded a soundbite, then someone named N.A.S.A. mixed them all together to make an album. The question remains, who the fuck is behind this? The album features David Byrne, Chali 2Na, Gift Of Gab, Chuck D, Karen O, Kanye West, George Clinton, Tom Waits, etc, etc, etc,. How does it work?
Sorry I'm late to the thread, life has been non-stop lately. I'm not 100% on all of the tracks because I'm not familliar with every song, but it's usually done by aquiring the accapella/vocal tracks of the songs and then laying them down onto their own produced beats. As mentioned before, very similar to Girl Talk mash-ups but not as busy. A lot of dj's do it live by playing an accapella over top of a song at the same tempo.
I really liked the album. Some songs were better than others, but it was still overall very enjoyable. For anyone else who enjoyed this album, I would also suggest looking up Fort Knox Five, Big League Chu, Smalltown DJs, Neighbour, Wax Romeo and Homebreakin Records.
