As tireless mashup evangelists for the past 14 years, we have seen the ebb and flow of mashup culture. Some years are great. Others, not so much.
2016 was shaping up to be the latter. For the first half of the year, we could barely cobble together ten mashups we felt were truly worthy of the “Bootie Top 10” seal of approval, which is why we ended up only doing a Top 10 every other month, instead of the usual monthly schedule. Not everything was “meh” — Bootie has always been about finding gems in the rough. But many of the mashups were a bit lackluster: lacking in genre-clash creativity, and usually simply combining current chart hits for DJs to play.
But over the past few months, things have started to change. A wealth of quality material has been released, especially just in the past two months. We have a 20-track Best of Bootie 2016 album coming out next week — with 10 bonus tracks — and over 1/3rd of it is new material we’ve never posted before. And there were still enough awesome tracks to easily do two Bootie Top 10 lists for both November and December. That’s right, 20 new tracks!
Consider it our Christmas present to you! Start right-clicking, and happy holidays!
