Spinning a rare feature set on the main floor, "mashup genius" DJ Earworm
has become THE "go-to" mashup producer for record labels, having produced officially-sanctioned tracks for such artists as Annie Lennox, Sean Kingston, and Maroon 5. And as the author of "Audio Mashup Construction Kit," it's no exaggeration to say that "DJ Earworm wrote the book on mashups!" In the upstairs room, DJ Matt Hite
is the special guest at Electro-Bootie, our monthly "club-within-a-club" specializing in electro bootlegs, remixes, and covers. And for the Midnight Mashup Show, sexy burlesque star Honey Lawless
performs as Cookie Monster, doing a twisted rendition of "Rehab."
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 nine 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's DJs and house band Smash-Up Derby
, as well as guest mashup DJs from around the world, keep your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, celebrating -- and satirizing -- the many different forms of music. Bootie also presents the infamous Midnight Mashup Show, featuring local drag and burlesque performers. Bootie showcases the best mashup productions from around the globe... because one song at a time just isn't enough!
