A coworker of mine described Girl Talk's All Day as "a bubble mix" when I introduced it to him. It sounded a bit derisive, actually.

I've never heard that term before, and all Google was no help either: it yielded lots of recipes for making your own bubble mix — for blowing bubbles. The few music related links it turned up, were pieces of music that were named "Some song (bubble mix)", which indicates that it is a musical term, just not one I know.

So what is a bubble mix?

    People commonly use the term "bubble gum" to refer to music they consider vapid, often pop music. Perhaps that is what he meant. Ask him! – Zac Ray Nov 1 '15 at 22:33

    @ZacRay "Bubble Mix" was also the title of Aqua's second album - they were quite popular in Europe when I was a kid. Considering the style they played, the term may be somehow connected to bubble gum music. You may remember the song "Barbie Girl" – easwee Nov 9 '15 at 21:48
  • It sounds synonymous with "bubblegum" pop, too. – user1604 Mar 14 '16 at 14:56

As mentioned in the comments it could be synonymous with Bubble Gum Pop music:

  • Lightweight catchy pop music

  • It was simple, melodic, and light as feather -- neither the lyrics or the music had much substance.

Wikipedia

Since Bubble gum pop can be refered to as simply bubble gum. A bubble gum mix could refer to a collection of bubble gum music or bubble gum music that was remixed. Or even some elements that are mixed into one song.
