This year’s annual mixtape compilation of Bootie’s biggest mashup hits is out! Consider it an early Christmas present … this is the earliest we’ve ever released a “Best of Bootie” CD!
As always, narrowing down our favorites was a difficult chore, complicated by the fact that several tracks on our list used the same source material, necessitating the need for … bonus tracks! Yes, in addition to the 21 mashups on an 80-minute CD-length mixtape, there are an additional 12 mashups for your downloading pleasure.
We have some custom edits, and three tracks are brand-new, having never been posted to our web site before, including a Bootie Exclusive from DJ Shyboy, and a year-end bonus track mashup (in the style of DJ Earworm) from Mashup-Germany, that nicely sums up the year in pop music.
There are several recurring musical motifs this year, as familiar refrains from LMFAO, Martin Solveig, Britney (and more) waft in and out of various mixes, the result of so many bootleggers mashing up multiple artists, going well beyond the classic “A+B” style of mashup production.
We think it’s a nice sum-up of the past year in mashups (as well a lot of this year’s music in general). This is pretty much the soundtrack of Bootie in 2011 – from the prime-time floor-fillers, all the way down to the closing song at last call!
