SF Weekly review: “Bootie Takes Pop Culture and Rearranges It Completely”

Posted in BOOTIE SF on February 21st, 2013 by Adrian

SF Weekly just published a mostly spot-on review of Bootie SF – entitled “Bootie Takes Pop Culture and Rearranges It Completely” – that really captures the essence of the party, especially during the 1 AM hour. (The reviewer showed up late, so he missed the Hubba Hubba Revue burlesque performances and aerial act, as well as Mysterious D‘s prime-time set.) But this quote really nails it:

“[Bootie] reclaims pop music by turning it into a kind of weird folk art reminiscent of fan fiction’s unlimited and uncanny “what if?” scenarios. Much like the dual faces projected on the screen, the mashups are reminiscent of drag turned into an inhabitable experience, where two binary opposites are combined to create an entirely different category.”

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!

Best of Bootie 2012 released! 20 of the year’s best mashups + bonus tracks!

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on December 25th, 2012 by Adrian

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!

Happy holidays from Bootie! “A Very Bootie Christmas 3″ released

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on December 7th, 2012 by Adrian

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!

And if you missed the first two albums in the collection, you can grab them all from the same convenient page.

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!

Bootie Top 20 – October / November 2012

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on November 28th, 2012 by Adrian

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!

There’s a ton of good stuff here, some of it older material that never made it to a Top 10 list, and a lot of it culled from two recent mashup albums, SoundUnsound’s 80’s Mashed 2: The 80’s Mashup Album and The Mashup Radio’s Mash of the Titans, as well as Titus Jones’ AfterShock and DJ Schmolli’s 80s Now.

Bootie Top 20 – August / September 2012

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on September 21st, 2012 by Adrian

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!

Bootie SF voted “Best Overall Dance Party” in Best of the Bay 2012

Posted in AplusD, BOOTIE SF on August 3rd, 2012 by Adrian

Bootie SF, the mothership of all Bootie parties, will soon be celebrating its 9-Year Anniversary, so we were elated to once again be voted the “Best Overall Dance Party” in the SF Bay Guardian “Best of the Bay 2012″ Readers Poll. And last month, A Plus D from Bootie we were voted “Best Event Producers” in the SF Weekly “Best of SF 2012″ Readers Poll.

Thanks, San Francisco! This is now the 7th year in a row we have one one of these two awards! (And only the second time we’ve won both in the same year!)

New Bootie Mashup Promo Video with A Plus D

Posted in AplusD, BOOTIE LA, BOOTIE SF on July 27th, 2012 by Adrian

Thanks to Vincent Giorgetti of Facing Halo Films, we now have another new promo video! Bootie Mashup creators and DJs A Plus D are seen in action at both Bootie SF at DNA Lounge and Bootie LA at Echoplex, along with Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby. This really captures the energy  and insanity of a typical Bootie party! Shot in February 2012.

Bootie Top 10 – July 2012

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on July 18th, 2012 by Adrian

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.”)

Bootie Top 10 – June 2012

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on June 22nd, 2012 by Adrian

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.

Bootie Mashup’s A Plus D to play Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary in San Francisco

Posted in AplusD on May 25th, 2012 by Adrian

Bootie Top 10 – May 2012

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on May 24th, 2012 by Adrian

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.

And if you want MORE (and don’t you always want more), scroll further down to check out our previous blog post, where we’ve posted 20 more mashups in tribute to the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, and the Bee Gees.

Triple Tribute – Bootie Mashup pays tribute to MCA of Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, & Robin Gibb of Bee Gees

Posted in Mashup Downloads, Top10 on May 24th, 2012 by Adrian

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…

New Bootie promo videos posted!

Posted in AplusD, Bootie USA on May 14th, 2012 by Adrian

After years of not really having any “proper” promo videos, Bootie now has TWO!

The first was produced by BJ Dini in advance of last month’s A Plus D European tour, and features footage from “The A Plus D Show” at the Bootie SF 8-Year Anniversary Party.

The second video was produced by Bootie Rio’s I Hate Flash crew, who came to Bootie SF in April, and features hilarious commentary from DJ John!John! who compares mashups to … sandwiches!  Check ‘em out!

LONDON, UK – Friday April 13 – BOOTIE LONDON

Bootie Top 20 – March/April 2012

Posted in Top10 on April 5th, 2012 by Adrian

By now, you should know the drill – we got busy, we went to South By Southwest, we went to China, we already gave you a Whitney Houston Top 10, blah blah blah. Whatever. You get this whenever we get around to it, which this time just happens to be … right before we leave for a… three-week European Bootie tour! (Click here for info)

We will soon be doing a massive website re-design and overhaul this summer, which ultimately will mean … more mashups, more often AND with more consistency (like having a Top 10 come out on the 1st of every month)! But until then, we’ll just try and make our tardiness up to you with extra free mashups, like this month’s Top 20, which is what we’ve got right here…

Right-click to download individual tracks.
Or CLICK HERE to download them all in a convenient ZIP file!

A Plus D – Levels That I Used To Know (Gotye vs. Avicii) – San Francisco
If it’s good enough for Avicii to play in his own DJ sets, then it’s good enough for us … well, actually, that version wasn’t, which is why we made our own!

Dan Mei – Uprising Bodies (Taio Cruz vs. Drowning Pool vs. Muse vs. Moby vs. Stromae vs. Infernal vs. Sak Noel) – Denmark
One of our favorite previously unreleased tracks off the new “Mashup Culture Vol. 1” compilation album from The Mashup Radio.

DJs From Mars – Twist & Shout (Beatles Remix) – Torino, Italy
DJs From Mars – We Found Every Teardrop (Rihanna vs. Coldplay) – Torino, Italy
The first one has been Adrian’s DJ secret weapon for the past year, while the second is guaranteed dance floor epicness.

Elocnep – Smooth Gasolina (Pitbull vs. Michael Jackson vs. Lazertag) – France
Elocnep turned us on to this electro banger when he guest DJed at Bootie SF in February.

DJ Em-Tee – Dominos Feel So Close (Jessie J vs. Calvin Harris) – Sydney
Barely anyone knows who Jessie J is here in the States, but we’ll be ready for Bootie London with this track.

The Jane Doze – Young Hearts Wanna Beat On Their Own (Katy Perry vs. The Naked & Famous vs. Robyn vs. Whitney Houston vs. Ke$ha vs. will.i.am) – New York City
This NYC female mashup duo seem to be venturing into Titus Jones’ territory with this pop-tastic multi-mash.

Kap Slap – Breakin’ The Doors (Skrillex ft. The Doors vs. Zedd vs. Florence + The Machine vs. Afrojack & Aoki ft. Miss Palmer vs. Calvin Harris vs. Pitbull vs. Ne-Yo vs. Katy Perry) – Pennsylvania
We just found out that Kap Slap is a senior in high school. He can’t even get into a nightclub to drop this track!

King of Pants – Pumped Up Moonlight (Foster The People vs. King Harvest) – Seattle
King of Pants – Sweet Judas (Lady Gaga vs. Eurythmics) – Seattle
After a long lull after the end of his Seattle mashup night Frankenboot, King of Pants is back! Of course, being a resident DJ at Bootie Seattle probably helps!

DJ Magic Baron – The One That Got A Hangover (Taio Cruz vs. Katy Perry) – The Netherlands
Discovered this one while searching for tracks for Katy Perry Mashup Night at Bootie SF. Love the dueling “oh-oh-oh’s,” plus “Hangover” could pretty much be our theme song.

Mashup-Germany – Starships Dance Floor Porn (Nicki Minaj vs. Britney Spears vs. Safri Duo vs. Chris Brown vs. Example vs. Hurts vs. Lil Jon vs. Daft Punk) – Frankfurt, Germany
Pop throwing up on pop, with a healthy dollop of Eurodance. Another winner from Germany’s “most clicked mashup artist.”

Party Ben – Set Fire to True Faith (Adele vs. New Order) – San Francisco
Party Ben rarely makes mashups anymore, but when he does, it’s nice to know he can still produce tracks like this one.

Phil RetroSpector – Killing Kids (Echo & the Bunnymen vs. MGMT) – Ireland
Just when we thought we were sick of “Kids” mashups, along comes this, bringing two generations of college radio hits together.

Ryan Nellis – 4A (Skrillex vs. LMFAO vs. Outkast vs. Tag Team vs. Britney Spears vs. Katy Perry vs. Daft Punk vs. Van Halen vs. Fergie) – Buffalo, USA
DJ Italian Robot brought this track to our attention. We don’t generally care for dubstep, but we’ll make an exception for this.

ShyBoy – Born In The Deep (Rolling Slippy) (Adele vs. Underworld) – Los Angeles
ShyBoy sings this one himself, bringing a whole new feel to Adele’s extremely-played out “Rolling In The Deep.”

TBC aka Instamatic – Her Breath Is The Wind (Rhiannon’s Breath) (Sia vs. Fleetwood Mac) – London
This one has “late-night closing song” written all over it. Gorgeously epic.

DJ Tripp – We Are On Fire (Adele vs. Fun.) – Santa Cruz, California
Two #1 U.S. hits, rolled into one. We’ve been obsessed with Fun. (we even saw them at South By Southwest) and apparently we aren’t the only ones, since it’s been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks now. This is probably our current favorite.

ViC – Hello Planes (Martin Solveig feat. Dragonette vs. M.I.A.) – Belgium
90 to 128 bpm in four minutes!

Wick-it the Instigator – Still California (Moombahton Remix) (Dr. Dre vs. Wick-it) – Nashville
We’re not much for bandwagon jumping, but we can get behind this moombahton trend, especially when it makes Dr. Dre sound like this!

SXSW Music Interview with A Plus D of Bootie

Posted in AplusD, tour on March 21st, 2012 by Adrian

We were so frantically busy at South By Southwest in Austin last week, that we forgot to post our interview with Your Music Radar! Check it out here.
