Hailing from New York City, DJ Lobsterdust
is not only one of Pitchfork's favorite mashup producers -- he's also one of ours! As a frequent guest DJ at Bootie NYC, Lobsterdust spins eclectic sets that run the gamut from indie, rock, electro, pop, hip-hop, and several points in-between -- which is why he's spinning sets both on the main floor and in the upstairs Electro-Bootie, our monthly "club-within-a-club" showcasing electro bootlegs, remixes, and covers, where he'll be joined by DJ Mad Murdock
on the decks. For the Midnight Mashup Show, dance crew Funk4Soul will hit the stage with their hip-hop moves.
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJs Adrian & The Mysterious D, 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 eight cities on three 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!

Bootie showcases the best mashup productions from around the globe... because one song at a time just isn't enough!
