It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. And after a somewhat lackluster year in the world of mashups — with many notable exceptions, of course — we have come to the end of 2016 with a Best of Bootie album that is 1/3rd new material that we’ve never showcased before on a Bootie Top 10, due to all the great mashups that have been released in just the past couple months.
This year’s compilation — just like every year — was chosen equally by Bootie creators Adrian A and Mysterious D, collectively known as A Plus D. The pair focused on mashups that utilized chart hits from the past year, to function a bit as a pop culture time capsule. However, they didn’t limit themselves to that criteria, especially if a mashup came out that used throwback material that hit a nostalgic sweet spot.
Britney and Beyoncé, the divas partly responsible for the two highest-attended parties in Bootie’s history (both at Bootie SF this past summer) are represented by a pair of double-shots. 2016’s two biggest fallen heroes — David Bowie and Prince — are represented with a couple cameo appearances. And of course, representing one of our favorite shows from 2016, there’s a “Stranger Things” mashup, because we’re big geeks.
As usual, this 74-minute mix is meant to encapsulate a night at a Bootie mashup party — from the first get-you-on-the-dance-floor moments, to the fist-pumping bangers, to the drunken sing-alongs, to the kooky oddball tracks, to the slow jams at the end of the night. Shout-out to EN8, for mixing it all together.
