A Plus D to spin at Electronic Frontier Foundation’s 25th Anniversary

Posted in AplusD, Bootie USA on July 14th, 2015 by Adrian

16-1As tireless torchbearers of mashup culture – and how MP3 mashups make a compelling case for “fair use” when it comes to copyright laws – it probably comes as no surprise that Bootie Mashup has been a longtime supporter of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. EFF is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world, working to ensure that rights and freedoms are enhanced and protected as our use of technology grows.

This coming Thursday July 16 at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, the EFF celebrates 25 years of digital freedom with a  special minicon and party. Bootie Mashup creators A Plus D are elated to be part of it, spinning mashups at 11 PM and keeping the party going!

“Gucci Gucci Girl Power” – Kreayshawn mashup video

Posted in AplusD on August 26th, 2011 by Adrian

We just saw Kreayshawn last night at her homecoming show at Slim’s in San Francisco, and though it was only a short, 35-minute set (with the White Girl Mob full representing), we felt we had witnessed the start of something big. In honor of Kreayshawn’s looming success, we’re posting the video for our A Plus D mashup, “Gucci Gucci Girl Power,” which mashes her up with three decades’ worth of female artists – Toni Basil, Le Tigre, The Ting Tings, The Go-Go’s, and Kreayshawn’s mom’s surf-punk band from the ’90s, The Trashwomen. Thanks to Dylan Vasey for editing together the video!

Bootie invades The Netherlands! Paaspop Festival: Mashup Ville, 23-24 April 2011. Mixtape download!

Posted in AplusD, tour on April 16th, 2011 by Adrian


This coming Easter weekend, Bootie is going to The Netherlands to take part in its first European festival, Paaspop in Schijndel. An entire area, called “Mashup Ville,” has been dedicated to mashups, and we – A Plus D – will be doing headlining sets each night.

We’ll be joined by some of the best names in the European mashup scene, including many of our personal friends and colleagues, including Bootie Berlin‘s DJ Morgoth, Dr. Waumiau, and Mashup-Germany, as well as DJ Schmolli and Simon Idoll. We’re also looking forward to meeting for the first time some of the faces behind the names we’ve known for so long, such as Bootie Top 10ers MadMixMustang, G3rst, Pheugoo, and Mash2Mix, as well as Dylan Vasey, Bo the Man, and Siegmund Fred.

Bootie’s love affair with New York Post’s PopWrap continues with this, a PopWrap exclusive and A Plus D’s first mashup of 2011 – a concept so screamingly obvious that we HAD to “whip it up” (pun intended) before there were a zillion other versions out there.
