Bootie is proud to present the return of the electro mashup masters, Italian duo DJs From Mars
. Fresh from their new Hard Rock Las Vegas DJ residency, they are infamous not just for bringing the mashup attitude into electro-house, but also for their cardboard cartoon alien box heads which they wear while playing live. In just a few short years, they have become one of the biggest names in the global DJ scene, with over 20 million views on YouTube, and playing alongside the likes of Tiesto.
Their bootlegs have been noticed by labels around the world, and in the U.S., they've worked with famed producer Jason Nevins, who has brought the pair remix work for such artists as Pitbull, Sean Paul, Ciara, Coolio, Cascada, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and many more. With dozens of official remixes and bootlegs (and counting) to their name, DJs From Mars are determined to bring their "electro alien bastard pop" to the world, with tour stops planned this year for Europe, China, Australia, Brazil, and the U.S.

Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-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 eight years, Bootie celebrates pop culture both past and present, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party, it's a place where everyone is welcome. And with free mashup CDs given away like candy, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation.
