Can you believe it? Only nine days after we posted the Rocktober Top 10, and we’re already back with a fresh set of mashups for November! It’s a pretty diverse playlist here, with a mix of current chart hits and a few classics, as well as some timely combinations, such as “Fox Thriller” (made just in time for Halloween, but still meme-worthy) and a Miley Cyrus / Sinead O’Connor duet which, given their public online feud, simply HAD to be done.
Germany & Israel are amply represented this month, with no less than four Germans and a pair of Israeli producers, signifying where in the world the mashup scene is bubbling up. As always, mashups are listed in alphabetical order by bootlegger, with Bootie Atlanta’s dj BC kicking off the list with a pirate-themed mashup.
It’s been a busy month for Team Bootie, as we threw four Halloween Booootie parties in four cities in one weekend! But now that we got through THAT insanity, we can finally get around to posting a new Top 10 for … ROCKTOBER!
Yes, this is a special edition of the Top 10, featuring all ROCK mashups! We’ve got a few producers making their Bootie Top 10 debuts, a pair from Canadian mashup producer Isosine, and speaking of Canadians, a marriage mashup of Avril Lavigne and Nickelback (get it? get it?) Plus, we’ve included a classic bootleg remix from the late, great Jells Mayhem of The Illuminoids, a much-missed member of the Bootie family who sadly passed away last month.
We promise November’s Top 10 will be coming sooner than later, and will feature lots more of our traditional dance mashups. Until then though, get to the downloading and ROCK OUT!
Yeah, yeah, it’s the middle of September and we’re only just NOW getting around to posting this month’s Top 10. Come on …. we went to Burning Man! What did you expect? But now that we’re back up to speed after our annual pilgrimage to the playa, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll likely be back on schedule for next month, so you won’t have to wait an entire month for another Top 10. Until then though, here’s THIS month’s Top 10 of our Bootie’s favorite mashups, sorted alphabetically by bootlegger.
As you’ve probably noticed, the little Yahoo Media Player we’ve been using as an embedded MP3 player on this web site unfortunately no longer works. In fact, it’s completely gone, due to the fact that Yahoo discontinued its support. We’ve been searching for a suitable — and easy-to-implement — replacement, but it’s been difficult finding something as elegantly simple as that Yahoo player (the whole thing worked with one invisible line of code pasted to the top of each web page that contained MP3s).If anyone has any ideas for a decent MP3 player replacement, please email us and let us know! We were just about to launch our newly re-designed web site, but the whole thing was built around having this player. DOH! So now we can’t launch until we find something decent to replace it. (And please don’t say Soundcloud, unless you want half of these mashups to end up being “unavailable” due to copyright issues.)
In the meantime, please enjoy this month’s fresh new Top 10!
This month, we’re clearing out a bunch of mashup material that’s been on our Bootie playlists for the past few months — some tracks that took a while for us to warm up too, and others that fell through the cracks of our hard drive, but we recently rediscovered. Three tracks are from excellent full-length mashup albums, so click on the links to discover more. Quite a few names on this month’s list are also making their very first appearance on the Bootie Top 10, proving that there’s always fresh new blood in the mashup scene. As usual, listed alphabetically by mashup producer.
As to be expected after our (Mostly) Europe Tour in April – 10 countries in 25 days – we’re a little late with the Bootie Top 10. And we would have gotten it out sooner had we not jetted off for a week in Brazil for Bootie Rio last week. But you know that Bootie always makes it up to you, so here’s a Top 20 for two months’ worth of mashups. A few producers got multiple mashups on this list, because – hey, we couldn’t pick just one! And why deprive you of quality mashups anyway? As usual, this is a pretty diverse mix of genre-busting stuff, featuring several current chart hits mashed up with some retro flavor that spans several decades of pop music – just the way we like it! – A+D
We are both completely stressed getting ready for our (mostly) Europe Tour in a couple days, yet we still managed to somehow put together a Bootie Top 10 this month. Some super-fresh tracks on here, as well as a couple forgotten favorites which we re-discovered while doing ’90s Mashup Night at Bootie (I’m looking at you, Alanis!) Enjoy the free downloads, and we hope to see you out on tour!
For this month’s Bootie Top 10, we seem to be wearing our love of ’80s music — especially late ’80s alternative music — on our sleeves. But there’s also some super-current material here as well, such as the meme vs. meme “Harlem Shake Gangnam Style,” the best “Thrift Shop” mashup we could find that actually uses the Macklemore vocal, and the just-gone-viral “Call Me A Hole.” And to top it all off, since it’s March, we also tossed in a classic St. Patrick’s Day mashup. Raise a pint and get to the downloadin’!
After over a month of pimping out the “Best of Bootie 2012″ album, it’s finally time for a fresh Bootie Top 10. This one is a grab bag of familiar names, mixed in with some new blood to bring us into the new year. A couple forgotten favorites are in the mix, along with a few we missed from the past couple months. Get to the downloadin’ and enjoy!
Nope, it didn’t happen. We didn’t manage to get this web site re-designed in time for the release of this year’s long-awaited “Best of Bootie 2012.” Oh well, that’s what New Years Resolutions are for, right?
So here it is, just in time for Christmas! 20 of Bootie’s biggest hits from the past year, all mashed together into one continuous party mix. It’s available in several different download formats, just in case you want to grab unmixed individual tracks as well. On top of that, we’ve also included 10 additional bonus tracks, because like every year, we can never pick just 20.
This year’s CD contains two tracks we’ve never featured before, including an exclusive, never-before-released mashup from ourselves – A Plus D – in addition to several “Bootie Edits” of tracks that have been on previous Bootie Top 10s. Plus, there’s a special intro from Lobsterdust, and maybe a little secret message at the end too…
This is pretty much the soundtrack of Bootie – in fact, Adrian just wants to put this on at the club and go out into the crowd and dance and sing along for 77 non-stop minutes, just like everyone else! Hopefully, you will too. Enjoy and please spread the mashup love!
It’s taken us three years to amass enough of a quality collection of holiday mashups to release “A Very Bootie Christmas 3,” the third album in our holiday-themed series. Perfect for Christmas parties!
Much thanks go out to Bootie Atlanta’s dj BC, who compiles the annual Santastic collections – including this year’s Santastic 7: It’s A Wonderful Mash – from which many of these tracks are culled from. In fact, we sometimes jokingly refer to these albums as the “Best of Santastic!” Happy holidays, and enjoy!
We’ve been so busy working on renovating this web site that we’ve barely had time to put together a Bootie Top 10 for you. So then it became a Top 15. And now that it’s been two months, it’s a Top 20. Again.
So this is hopefully the last Bootie Top 10 (or Top 20) list we post on this tired old web site, as we prepare to launch the vastly updated, improved, and modernized BootieMashup.com 2.0. With any luck, it will coincide with the release of the hotly-anticipated “Best of Bootie 2012″ CD, which you can look forward to dropping in mid-December. But not before we release “A Very Bootie Christmas 3″ next week!
Halloween is one of Bootie’s favorite holidays, so we couldn’t let another year go by without a special Halloween mashup compilation, our first in two years!
Halloween Booootie 3 has just been released, containing 13 spooktacular monster mashes, all mega-mixed for maximum Halloween party playage. CLICK OVER to our Halloween page to download, and while there, grab our first two Halloween compilations from 2009 and 2010.
Yes, we have heard your cries and … well, okay, we feel bad. Sure, we can make all sorts of excuses for why it’s taken us two whole months to post a new Bootie Top 10, or 20, as the case may be — we were busy preparing for the Bootie 9-Year Anniversary, then we went to Burning Man, then we came back and life sort of slammed us in the face, blah blah blah — but still, we recognize it’s been WAY too long.
The new Bootie Mashup web site is still being developed, but when it launches, rest assured, there will be a steady stream of quality mashups each week. And with last month’s demise of GYBO — one of the internet’s best sources for bootlegs — we recognize that now, more than ever, there needs to be a site that curates the best of the mashup world. The bootleg scene is healthier – yet more fragmented – than ever before. But that’s why Bootie’s here, to bring it all together.
This month, we mix and match several variations of a few songs, such as “Good Time,” “Gangnam Style,” “Rumour Has It,” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” Think of them the same way we do when parts of certain songs repeat in and out of DJ sets at Bootie — they are muscial motifs!
Wow, you would be amazed at how much faster it is for us to post a Bootie Top 10 when we don’t have to worry about writing little blurbs for each track. We’ll start doing that again when the new BootieMashup.com web site launches, but it will be as individual blog entries … which means you’ll be seeing us a lot more than just once a month!
But until then, it’s just your usual Top 10, with its eclectic mix of guilty pleasures, electro bangers, and clever A+B’s. This month’s list is a nice mix of familiar bootlegger names, along with some fresh new talent (so new that they might not even know that when we say “bootlegger,” we really mean “mashup producer.”)
We are currently deep in the midst of a complete overhaul of the BootieMashup.com web site. This isn’t just a redesign – this is a complete top-to-bottom re-do, the way it always should have been had we known nine years ago that our little mashup party would blossom into the global mashup empire it is today. So far, it’s looking gorgeous, and light years ahead of this current web site. Be prepared to be wowed (in a few months!)
In the meantime though, we’ll still find time to post a monthly Top 10 of our favorite mashups. We’ve got summertime hits mixed in with some ’80s classics, a couple forgotten favorites, and a Skrillex double-shot for good measure (yeah, yeah, we know…) This month’s selections also contain links to some great bootleg albums, in case this list isn’t enough for you.
Yeah, this is about when we figured we’d get around to having a new Bootie Top 10 (as we warned you guys with the extra tracks last month). And to streamline the process – and to get it posted before the end of the month – we’ve forgone the usual blurbs for each individual track. If your choice is getting this now, or getting this sometime next week because we had to spend time going “blah blah blah” about each mashup, wouldn’t you rather just have it NOW?
But don’t worry, the blurbs will be back – just in a different format. We are currently in the process of a COMPLETE OVERHAUL of the BootieMashup.com web site – which will ultimately mean that you’ll be getting a steady stream of mashup content every couple days, on an exact schedule you can count on, instead of every couple months when we are able to get to it. Yes, now that our China and Europe tours are over, we are back in the States and ready to … Ramp. Shit. Up. Bigger, badder, better. Stay tuned…
There’s a pretty wide selection of stuff here, from “current pop throwing up on current pop,” to mashups reminding us of songs we thought we forgot about (I’m talking to you, Chambawamba). There’s also a fair amount of ’80s sprinkled in, and – despite our general disdain of the genre, yes, there are two dubstep mashups here too. As usual, mashups are listed alphabetically by bootlegger.
They say that celebrity deaths always happen in threes, and this past month, we lost three amazing musicians all within weeks of each other.
We were already planning a Beastie Boys mashup tribute in honor of Adam Yauch (aka MCA) when we heard the news about Donna Summer, and then, just a few days later, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees.
Of course, as DJs, we had to play each of these artists at the past few Bootie parties, but what better way to pay mashup tribute than to post them here for everyone to enjoy. R.I.P. Adam, Donna, and Robin…
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!
When we started the Bootie Top 10, we had rules, dammit! Only 10 mashups! Posted the first week of every month! No more than one mashup per producer! Listed in alphabetical order by bootlegger!
But everyone knows what rules are for: to be broken! Hell, this is Bootie’s mantra!
For one thing, this semi-monthly list of mashup downloads is turning into a “Top 10″ in name only, due to the fact that we rarely whittle this thing down to only 10 tracks, and half the time, we’re trying to make up for posting this shit weeks late anyway.
This month is no exception. Yeah, yeah, we pretty much skipped September, just like we predicted we would, since all we did the entire month was play “catch up” after being at Burning Man, not to mention having so many Booties to run, and an Asia tour to plan! (This is why we gave you guys 15 mashups in August.)
But to make it up to you, we’re giving you September and October together NOW. And if you’re doing the math, that means between August and October, you’ve gotten 35 mashups. Yes, an extra five mashups – MORE than you’d have gotten in 3 months. Consider it our “late fee.” You’re welcome.
Isosine – Psychosocial Baby (Justin Bieber vs. Slipknot) – Canada
This made the rounds on the internet months ago, but it took us a while to get to it. Sure it’s got the classic mashup “wow factor” – Slipknot singing over a Justin Bieber song? WTF? But once you get past the initial novelty of the total genre-clash, it still holds up, showcasing Slipknot’s nascent pop sensibilities, especially on the chorus.
Damn you, Maroon 5. We thought we hated you. I mean, we still kinda do, but now it’s because you made us actually like one your songs. That is one fine catchy pop melody, which goes even better with some David Guetta and Lady Gaga. This is well-produced dancefloor gold.
Swede Mason – Masterchef Synesthesia (Buttery Biscuit Bass) [feat. Gregg Wallace & John Torrode] – UK
This was our camp’s theme song at Burning Man this year. You had to be there. But really, it’s the video that makes this track anyway, so just watch it here, as it remixes vocal samples from the UK TV show “Masterchef’ and turns it into a BUMPIN’ dance track. Watch out for the obligatory “wobble” dubstep breakdown! The two chefs liked it so much they actually sanctioned an official release in the UK!
