Playlist Who? Its Big Booty Time

Last week Two Friends decided to give quarantined America the gift of Big Bootie Mix Vol. 17. I didn’t realize that this was what I needed to improve my mental state until I put my Airpods in and tuned out the world for an hour. Was it a little sad that I had to listen to it alone at my house? Duh. But even though I didn’t have the option of jamming out with my college roomies to the new release, I still felt happy thinking about all the future pre-games we would have in the fall with this song playing in the background. Big Bootie mixes are one of my favorite pre-game songs to listen to when I am getting ready with my friends. Two Friends has made 17 volumes of these mixes, so you know they are doing something right! I hope you all have listened to Big Bootie, or at least heard of it. If you haven’t though, no worries because I’m gonna tell you all the amazing reasons why you should be listening to hopefully inspire you to get with the program and jam to Big Bootie!

  1. 1. There are 17 volumes!!!

    One of the best things about Big Bootie Mix is how there are so many different volumes to choose from! Two Friends has made 17 mixes. I really like this because there is never the need to get sick of one particular volume since there are so many options to choose from. It is also nice because if you want to try something new there is definitely a new volume to try; it is highly unlikely that you have listened to all 17 volumes. 

  2. 2. All the best songs in one spot

    Big Bootie mixes have all of the songs you could ever ask for and more. Literally there’s more; Two Friends likes to include snippets from popular podcasts or tv shows (there’s a quote from The Office in one of them!). Most of the popular songs at the moment are mashed together in these mixes, and there are even some older songs included so that there is a good mix of everything. Everyone is bound to know at least one song in a Big Bootie mix, and that’s the whole fun of it! If you just put on Big Bootie and let it roll, everyone is bound to have a good time. All the songs will be familiar, and it is always exciting to hear songs that you forgot about play at a party. Also, the beats are sick. I never would have imagined some of the songs combined the way that they are in the mixes. I get so excited when I listen to a new one because it is so cool to hear old songs mixed so flawlessly with today’s hits. 

  3. 3. The length though

    Now, this one goes out to all my fellow pre-game DJs out there. If you are the friend who always controls the music during the pre-game, you understand the struggle. It isn’t easy to get your hair, makeup and outfit ready while simultaneously making sure the music choices are spot on and don’t kill the night's vibe. This is especially difficult if you don’t already have a curated pre-game playlist, which is something that I am guilty of not having. For this reason, Big Bootie is great to play, at least while you finish getting yourself ready for the night. Each volume lasts an hour, so you don’t need to keep worrying about thinking of what song to put on the queue. This allows you to just relax and enjoy your time with you friends. Also, it is an hour of fun songs, so it will keep everyone in a pumped-up mood. 

  4. 4. They are on Spotify. 

    I think this is all I need to say for this point. Spotify is life. 

Of course, there are a ton of other amazing reasons why you should be listening to Big Bootie mixes, but I want you to figure out the rest of them for youself. Although I talked a lot about Big Bootie in the context of partying, they can be enjoyed in so many different settings: on your commute to work, while you work out, while walking your dog; the possibilities are endless. Basically, just go open your Spotify app or Soundcloud and give Big Bootie a listen before you regret it!
