What’s a mashup ? What’s a bootleg ?
It’s pretty much all the same. Also known as “bastard pop,” a bootleg is a song that’s “mashed-up.” Usually, this means the vocal track of one song is mixed over the instrumentation of another. Using audio editing software, DJs and mashup 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, Queen merging with Daft Punk, or Miley Cyrus fronting the Village People., or Kanye West rapping with Beethoven, and many other unexpected combinations ! Can’t imagine that ? (Text from : Bootie USA)
