Remember those Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials? “Hey! You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!” “You got your peanut butter in my chocolate!” But in the end, everyone laughed and enjoyed their strange new concoction. Bootie L.A. seems to offer something like that. This Angeleno sister to Bootie SF presents djs who mash up different songs from different genres to create one unique song. An example of this currently on the airwaves: Weezer’s “Beverly Hills” mixed with Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock & Roll,” some Lynyrd Skynyrd and Queen. It may sound like too many cooks spoiling the broth and you either love it or hate it, but me? I appreciate the fresh take on the song.
From Bootiela.com, Mash-up n (ma-shup):
When the vocal track of one song is mixed over the instrumentation of another. Using audio editing software, DJs and mash-up artists combine different artists and musical genres to create new and unique songs that are often greater than the sum of their parts. Imagine Michael Jackson rocking out with Nirvana, or Madonna singing with the Sex Pistols, or Eminem rapping with No Doubt.
So Bootie L.A., the first all-bootleg mash-up party, has started up a monthly goings-on in the Echo. Their next one is TONIGHT and if you get there before 10pm, admission is $5. After 10? It’s $8. But extra incentive to get there early is that the first 50 people through the door get a FREE Bootie CD. Awesome.
Can’t make it to the club tonight? Check the Bootie site for the next party time, and DJ Paul V. who will be appearing at tonight’s show hosts the mash-up show “Smash Mix” on Indie 103.1 FM on Fridays.
