EDM.com - Two Friends arrived in the Windy City and brought Jordan's Game 6 energy.
The duo held the sophomore edition of Big Bootie Land in Chicago over the weekend and the outing marked a serious pressure test for the series. The event fell on the same weekend as Taylor Swift's trifecta of sold-out shows, taking place mere blocks away at Soldier Field, but "Big Bootie" believers still showed up en masse as 10,000 energized fans gathered to hear the debut of "Big Bootie Mix Volume 23"—and they weren't left disappointed.
Though the pressure was on to deliver a show fans wouldn't forget, Two Friends effortlessly made the night feel like a victory lap. Their tight-knit relationship with their fan base was on full display as attendees eagerly took photos with inflatable fictional characters of the Big Bootie Land universe, played along to Two Friends trivia during a brief intermission and sung the duo's originals with the same fervor as their show-stopping mashups.
So our guys Two Friends dropped their latest mix this past weekend (officially on Monday) and its burning up the internet per usual.
That comes as no surprise as they've held the mixtape crown now for quite some time.
What does come as a surprise, a huge one in fact, is that our own resident vape God Tommy Smokes makes an appearance on the mix.
I was shocked to say the least when I saw this.
Even more shocked than when I saw that he snaked me on the deep sea fishing trip I've been trying to plan with Sydnie Wells for over a year now.
But that's a passive agressive blog for another day.
The Big Bootie Mix Volume 23 bangs. These guys continue to amaze, not just with their talents and abilities to conjure up amazing mash-ups and blends, but to produce them at a quality that sounds as clean and clear as they do. It's seriously incredible. (I still have a theory that Matt & Eli have a secret industry plug feeding and leaking them studio acapellas that nobody else can get).
The mix features 216 unique songs spanning contemporary pop, dance music classics, and, of course, singalong-worthy Two Friends hits, old and new.
We're also running a promo with them for their Queens, NY show at Forest HIlls Stadium on July 8th where you can score VIP Tickets for your crew, AND meet and greet passes with Matt and Eli before the show. Info on how to enter is below on Barstool Backstage IG.
