bootleg club

bootleg is a trend in london's club scene that's been around since the beginning of the 2000s. it is also called bastard pop or mash-ups. the sound mixes songs from totally different music genres into new tracks. club bastard started as the centre of the uk bootleg scene. every first thursday of the month the club bastard parties would happen at the asylum club. the bootleg style has existed since djs first put a pop record on a turntable. dj's such as osymyso, mixed christina aguilera with nirvana and turned pop songs with the help of fat beats and ugly bass lines into a dark mash-up. the asylum club has unfortunately shut down along with the club bastard party nights. osymyso and other djs still use the bootleg style.
