Michael Jackson: The Acapella Archive [Exclusive]



Hip Hop Is Read Exclusive: Truth be told, I coulda, shoulda thought of this project a bit sooner, but at least it's here! Fourty-four tracks deep, this is the most thorough and complete Michael Jackson acapella collection available. I had acquired a bunch of these acapellas over the years, either from individually downloading the tracks or getting them via Motown acapella packages on Boxden. The rest I'd compiled via various internet sources between the time of Michael Jackson's passing until even just last night.

Unlike previous releases, I haven't downgraded the bitrates to 192 kbps. I figure if you're gonna be working with acapellas, you can deal with the bitrates with whatever mixing program you're using. The tracklisting and file names, as you can see below, are assorted in alphabetical order without track number surtitles - for easy archiving. The rest is up to you. Long live the spirit, memory and music of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Enjoy another HHIR exclusive... and turn it up 'til you get enough!

  35. simply AMAZING!!! ...however, not to be annoying, but, what about "man in the mirror"? (seriously, if anyone has that acapella, a link would be really appreciated! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. here's one link for "man in the mirror," but it doesn't sound like the original acapella voice track(s), but rather an attempted "acapella extraction" from the song, itself?:

  58. This acapella of "Blame it on the boogie" is not the original one performed by MJ himself, but a 2003 version perfomed by a danish teen singer, Jay Kid.
    Check his video at youtube and compare the sound, lyrics, timing and etc.

  73. Rap and hip hop beats is a style of popular music which came into existence in roughly the mid '70s but became a large part of modern day pop culture in the late '80s. It consists of two main components: rapping and DJing . Along with breakdancing and graffiting, these compose the four elements of hip hop, a cultural movement that was initiated by inner-city youth, mostly African Americans in New York City, in the early 1970s.
