Mashup Monday

Best Of Bootie '08

Haven’t posted a Monday mashup in way too long. Perfect excusse to stop by and visit our good friends at Bootie SF, America’s first ever regular mashup dance night curated by DJ’s Adrian & the Mysterious D. Go homies! The duo have also released their annual Best Of featuring the hip shakinest, head banginest grooves from around the globe. There’s ComaR out of Paris stuffing the Jackson 5 into a Justice jam, Munich’s DJ Y Alias JY crashes Duffy into the Doobie Brothers plus several local folks like SF’s Earworm shoving BeyoncĂ© up against Tom Petty. Such great stuff that there’s a full 13 bonus tracks that didn’t make the cut. My favorite of the bonus tracks is this hard chugger by LA’s The Illuminoids.

Get It On At Le Disko (T. Rex vs. Shiny Toy Guns)

My favorite of the regular tracks so far is local DJ Earworm. Not sure if it’s the best musically but the sample list is plain crazy.

No More Gas (Rihanna vs. Kardinal Offishall vs. Akon vs. Ne-Yo vs. Estelle vs. Pussycat Dolls vs. Leona Lewis vs. Danity Kane vs. Madonna vs. Timbaland vs. Justin Timberlake vs. Lupe Fiasco vs. Matthew Santos vs. Britney Spears vs. Flo-Rida vs. T-Pain)

Mashup Monday

Finally got around to sinking my teeth into Bootie’s annual collection of the best mashups of the year. Sounds like it was a slow year for the genre compared to the previous two but there are some fine grooves here. Bootie’s regular throwdown at the DNA Lounge was recently upped to twice a month so you can rest assured these folks know what they’re doing. You get Amy Winehouse facing off with Britney Spears, Jackson 5 going against Guns N’ Roses, Wild Cherry crashing into Frankie Goes To Hollywood plus 17 more.

Two personal favorites:

Tequila Lip Gloss (Lil Mama vs. The Champs)DJ Paul V

Standing In The Way Of Connection (Gossip vs. Elastica)A plus D

Get the whole 75 minute continuous mix as a zip file here or download individual tracks plus some bonus cuts here. You can find links to the best of ’05 & ’06 compilations there as well. And don’t forget to grab the artwork here.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
