Bootie Mashup, the international club brand that has helped popularise mashup culture around the globe, comes to Canada for ONE NIGHT ONLY! Headlining this night of mashup mayhem will be the club's creators, San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, who for more than a decade have become internationally-known as not only tireless torchbearers of the mashup genre, but mashup producers and performers in their own right. In addition to DJing, they also add a live element to their sets, as DJ Adrian (who also fronts live mashup band Smash-Up Derby) takes the mic to sing a few mashups live! As the SF Weekly wrote, "Committedly unpretentious and ready to rock, A Plus D deliver the perfect remedy for the occasionally snooty, often staid dance scene." Helping them keep the night going will be Bootie Seattle's resident DJs, Freddy, King of Pants, and Destrukt, as they all spin the best mashups in the universe!
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJ duo Adrian & Mysterious D -- aka A Plus D -- BOOTIE was the first club night in the United States dedicated solely to the then-burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup -- and has since become the biggest all-mashup event in the world, with regular parties on four continents, from NYC to Berlin, from Rio de Janeiro to Hong Kong.
Bootie showcases the best in mashup song productions from producers worldwide ... with nearly a decade's worth of the best of the best in bastard pop. You'll hear songs hot off the laptop as well as classic bootlegs, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Bootie celebrates -- and satirizes -- the many different genres and styles of music.
Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party where everyone feels welcome, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation -- with free mashup CDs given away like candy. Bootie brings all kinds of people together, mashing up the audience and uniting them on the dance floor.
