Direct from London, it's the return of The Kleptones
, one of the UK's best mashup producers. Since 2002, The Kleptones have released a series of highly-acclaimed internet-only albums, including the landmark "A Night At The Hip-Hopera," which mashed up a variety of rappers and sound samples with the seminal music of Queen, and the ambitious double-album "24 Hours," widely hailed as "the first real mashup concept album." On the eve of the release of The Kleptones' eighth album, Bootie Mashup is proud to present this rare U.S. appearance of this mashup legend.
At 11 PM, Bootie's own house band Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage for a set of live rock mashups, while for the Midnight Mashup Show, Bootie NYC's Alejandro takes the stage. Resident DJs A Plus D
also spin on the main floor, and in the upstairs room, it's SQURRRL, as DJs Papa Tony, Bill Dupp, and Trevor Sigler -- along with host Danyol -- present a nutty night of house, electro, and breaks, with plenty of funk in-between.
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by A Plus D -- aka DJs Adrian & Mysterious D -- Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup -- and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. Voted "Best Club Night" for the past seven years, Bootie keeps your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party. Providing the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation -- and free mashup CDs given away like candy -- it's a place where everyone is welcome.
