More music mashups: peer-reviewed edition

top-mashups-2010.jpg After I posted about the Best of Bootie 2010 release, Chris DeLine at Culture Bully wrote to let me know about two collections they compiled, voted on by those who make 'em. Some overlap with Bootie, but a few others worth checking out. (Image via Culture Bully)
As with many mashups - that first list is pretty hit or miss, but I think the compilation came together nicely. Thanks for supporting the genre - been following it for a number of years myself and still find gems along the way that keep me hoping that there's still a bit of life left in these things.
50+ mashup producers voted on the top mashups of the year

10 track mix of original mashups reshaping the year in music


  1. I’ve listened to Girl Talk and honestly, compared to the likes of what Andrea has posted GT seems amateurish by comparison. I thoroughly enjoyed GT when I didn’t know better. Thanks, Andrea for the Best of Bootie post and this follow up piece. It is greatly appreciated. My wife, our thirteen month old, my mom and I actually had a dance session this afternoon in my living room thanks to you and a Chrono Trigger mashup album. :)

    Give Girl Talk another try! I think one of the most impressive things about him is not the output in its raw form (though I must admit, I really like that too), but the way he is able to make such an amazing live performance out of it. I would argue that his ability to perform the music live is what most sets Girl Talk above most of the rest of the pack. It’s one thing to edit something to “perfection”, it’s another to be able to pull it all off live while manipulating hundreds (thousands?) of samples.
