Sam Padrul – Why Do I Do (Ft. Jason Gaffner)

Jamiroquai, Craig David, Breakbot… the comparisons are varied, diverse but all have a funky, poppy edge.

It’s Monday again, but we’re here to help! This week’s mashup comes from self-proclaimed ‘soundcloud funny girl’ Mel IRL, a mix of Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ and the classic ‘Feel Good Inc’ by Gorillaz. As per, a combination that may raise eyebrows but somehow works oh so well. I actually laughed about 30 seconds in, it’s great! … Continue reading
