Direct from the UK, Bootie is proud to present a rare Stateside appearance from The Kleptones
, one of Britain's best mashup producers. Since 2003, they've released six full-length mashup albums -- all for free on the internet -- including the seminal Queen bootleg album, "A Night At The Hip-Hopera." Their recently-released double album -- their first in two years -- immediately blew up the blogosphere with its dual sides: "Uptime" provides the Bootie dance floor bangers, while "Downtime" plays the role of a chilled-out after-party. At 11 PM, live mashup rock band Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage, while in the upstairs room, Electro-Bootie presents the Future Universal DJs, as they return to rock the electro remixes. And for the Midnight Mashup Show, it's the Bootie stage debut of Miss Rahni
, winner of Trannyshack's most recent "Star Search" competition.
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJs Adrian & 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 regular 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!
