Summer Booties 2008

Last year BBI released the album Summer Booty, a 3 CD monster collection of tunes around a summer theme. This was the first album I was featured on, the album was a huge succes, even though (or maybe because) not all tracks were flawless. I think it worked as a kind of jumpstart for a lot of mashup-artists who were just starting or not very well known and were featured along arrived bootleggers.
This year there will be two Summer Booty albums, due to some differences of opinion between the facilitators of the first edition. The first one has just arrived, DJ Useo presents Summer Booty 2008 and features one track of mine:

Lebanese Thieves Don't Lie
Shakira - Hips Don't Lie (vocals)
Thievery Corporation - Lebanese Blonde (instrumental)

It's on my myspace player but not yet available for download. You can download it by going to the summerbooty site

Soon Sound UnSound Network (The successor of BBI) will present their Summer Booty compilation as well on which I also will be featured.

So even though this little quarrel might have stirred some rivalry the bootleg afficonados ultimately profit by having more to listen to.
For the record, both sides have laid down their quarrel and are in support of each others product.

What i like at Virtual Dj is that the vinyl controls will let you scratch like on a real turntable, except that with the beatlock engine your scratches will never end out of the beat. I got it from here: Virtual Dj
