Another 2 bonus mashup tracks to celebrate my 30th birthday: "The Bigger Call, Maybe..." & "Erase Stuff"! Listen on YouTube; download on Patreon + some more updates!
Hi everyone and hope you're having a great end to April. Still on lockdown over here, and its been a reasonably productive week mixing / mastering + sorting artwork for one of the upcoming Jabun albums, as well as recording / mixing the next one. I'm definitely starting to feel a little burned out as of late though, and the lockdown restrictions are starting to get to me too, so perhaps time for a break soon. It was certainly a strange 30th birthday on Friday, but I think I made the best of it (looking forward to celebrating properly when this is all over). But anyways some cool things to share this week! 2 new tracks and the associated Patreon rewards. Let's get to it!
So as previously mentioned, Friday was my 30th birthday so as an extra special treat and thanks for all the support over the years, not only did I release 2 new Patreon exclusive bonus mashup tracks, but also patrons got them on my birthday instead of having to wait for the first Wednesday of the month like usual! Woot woot! For those of you not on Patreon you can listen to them on YouTube! Grab the rewards and check out the videos below:

The first bonus track is another Better Than The Book mashup and although I didn't think it would work initially, I'm actually super pleased with the way it turned out! Check out "The Bigger Call, Maybe..." via the video link below and hope you get a kick out of it!
Better Than The Book - The Bigger Picture [Instrumental]
Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe [Acapella]
The second mashup doesn't feature any of my own music (apart from putting it together) but was equally super fun to make. A little back-story: on my first date with my S.O. Eva, I bought the "Significant Other" album by Limp Bizkit on vinyl, and a few years later, I started her vinyl collection with Ed Sheeran's "Divide" album. Seemed like a fun challenge to mash them up, and if you just imagine Ed Sheeran's having a really bad day, I think it works really nicely! Have a listen via the YouTube link below!

Limp Bizkit - Break Stuff [Acapella]
These bonus mashup tracks are Patreon exclusive downloads so if you want to pick up a copy, come join the lovely community on Patreon! Remember that you'll be getting not just these mashups but all historic rewards for your chosen tier when you sign up too including the full Better Than The Book discography and much more! With the REWARD ARCHIVE tag it's never been easier to catch up with all those posts and music downloads you've missed too! I hope you enjoy them!
And again for the $10 patrons, you've also got another exclusive demo from Jabun's upcoming 2nd album to look forward to as well as an article on the composition/production process for it (and I really think this articles one of the most interesting production pieces yet!)! Become a $10 patron to access that article, music, and much more now!

That's it for this month's rewards, and as these are really an early May reward for the $1 patrons, I'll be seeing you next time at the start of June to continue with the Jabun back catalogue of tracks unless something else comes up beforehand (last week of May for the $5+ patrons)! Enjoy the music!
And that about wraps things up for this post too! I think I'll take it a bit easier over the next week, though I'm sure I'll be working a little on the next 2 Jabun albums as and when and at the very least, next time we'll be reflecting on monthly goals as usual! Until then, I hope you have a great week and enjoy all the silly mashups which have been released this month, and thank you so much as always for supporting JabunAudio, Better Than The Book, Jabun, and my various other projects! Take care, and I look forward to seeing what this next decade of my life brings and sharing it with you! All the best!
