Turntablism is sooooo 20th century! Tonight, it's all about "controllerism," the new digital DJ style that uses technology as a musical instrument, using hacked controllers and software to manipulate music live and on the fly. New York City's Moldover
has been at the vanguard of this emerging cutting-edge DJ technology, and will be doing a showcase set on stage -- complete with live video -- so the audience can watch how the music is being controlled and manipulated. In the upstairs room, Electro-Bootie returns with electro bootlegs and remixes courtesy of DJs Party Ben
from Call In Sick! And Suppositori Spelling
performs the midnight mashup show.
Launched in 2003, Bootie was the first club night in the United States dedicated solely to the burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup -- and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with monthly parties in six cities on two continents. Mixing and matching every conceivable 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!
Resident DJs Adrian, the Mysterious D, and Dada
keep your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, celebrating -- and satirizing -- the many different forms of music. Guest mashup DJs from around the world are featured, and the infamous midnight mashup show showcases popular local drag and burlesque performers.
