Don't Jump For Too Long

Dont Jump For Too Long [Extended Edit] (Daft Punk vs. Kriss Kross, Dave Dirt & Funkanomics) by DJ Dain

This one started out as a mini-mix which included a remix of "Jump Around" by House of Pain. It felt to chaotic to upload as a mash-up, so I re-edited the track to follow more of the original arrangement of Daft Punk's "Too Long." It took quite a while to get a number of different sections in this piece just right, including the opening (which actually starts on a down-beat in the original song). It was also a challenge figuring out the best strategy to incorporate the Kriss Kross breakdown without having to over-complicate manipulating the song's tempo. I'm pretty pleased with the result - even if it is literally "too long" for some.

Man, don't tease me with House of Pain and not deliver. Like a knife in my heart.

I'll tell you what . . . I'll dig up the original mini-mix and upload it just for you. :P

Sweet. Kriss-Kross simply can't stack up.
