Blending Your Thursdays: The Reborn Identity

Gavin Burrell, aka The Reborn Identity, is a UK native based out of Manchester. He’s been creating mash-ups for just over four years now, and it’s apparent that he has quite the talent. Burrell has since graduated from the amateur/everyday-mixup artist and has expanded onto the Internet through his website and Soundcloud page where you can find a wide array of other mashups. Be sure to keep up with this guy on Facebook who obviously has a whole lot of potential.

In the featured track, Burrell takes music from two different generations and makes them seem like they were meant to be, a characteristic I think all mashups should have. There are no fill ins from eight different songs; simply Don McLean singing what he recorded back in 1971 accompanied by the very popular, Florence + The Machine. Enjoy.
