Now someone’s mashed-up Flume with Tupac and it’s amazing

Four years ago, a Perth producer by the name of Jaymee Franchina set the internet on fire when he mashed-up Flume’s debut album with a selection of the Notorious B.I.G.’s best tracks, amassing over 20 million streams on SoundCloud and getting support from Harley Streten himself.

Now, Franchina’s back with a follow-up. He’s just released a part two to the Flume mash-up project, this time blending Streten’s second album Skin and companion EP with the work of seminal rapper Tupac Shakur. He’s made a full 13 tracks, all of which are available as a free download on Bandcamp.

The Hottest 100-topping hit  Never Be Like You collides with Tupac’s 1998 anthem Changes, while Say It is paired with Ghetto Gospel. Franchina even revisits I Met You, Flume’s 2012 collaboration with Anna Lunoe, for a bonus mash-up with Hit Em’ Up

Franchina told inthemix he started work on the project straight after Skin dropped last May, but wanted to wait until the second week of February – the exact week he released the first mash-up album – to drop part two. Hear one of the standout tracks from the mixtape below, head to Bandcamp for the rest and keep up with all things Jaymee Franchina on Facebook.
