Best of Bootie 2006

by Alex Hern

I love living in London. It is a vibrant city, full of life, love, and music.

But one thing I’ve missed for a while is the lack of Bootie.

No, fool. I’m talking about the club. They exist in LA, San Francisco and Black Rock City (wherever the hell that is), and they are at the heart of a musical genre that has been steadily growing for the past couple of years.

Call it Bastard Pop. Call it Mash-ups, or bootlegs. Just two things are certain:

1. It is more than just people rapping over popular rock songs (although that is a large part of it)

2. The best of the genre can always be found in Bootie.

So rejoice! as the 2006 best of is released. Standout tracks include Crazy Logic, and Hung Up on Soul. See if you can guess what they contain before you listen to them…
