about

These last few years, mash-ups have been garnering more and more attention, being some sort of bastard offspring of previous concepts such as cover versions and remixes. Usually, most mash-ups either combine recent hits or create new pieces using little bits of countless songs. None of these is the case of Federico Scally, the man behind the Alonso Morning moniker.

Unlike that, Alonso's work does not intend to experiment with new songs or render those little bits almost unrecognizable. Instead, he uses only a few existing songs for each of his pieces, and there is nothing new about them, since he uses mostly huge classics. However, the surprise we get when we listen to his work is not diminished by this in any way. Skillfully, Alonso combines songs we all know with amazing results, often putting together rock in english with latin rythms, resulting in catchy, fun, dance-oriented and campy tunes, that will please both demanding --or pretentious, as it is our case-- ears as well as those who are not adept to mash-ups, kind of like your aunt being a little tipsy at a family brithday party.

Oldies but Gordies is a compilation of his first three unreleased albums, and it will show you just how fun these outrageous combinations can be.
