Line-up /Kleptones, Lobsterdust, Payroll, Instamatic
On Friday 12 October, BOOTIE, the international club brand that has helped popularise mashup culture around the globe, is back at Electrowerkz. And this time, it's a mashup battle across the pond – it's LONDON vs. NEW YORK!
Representing London is mashup legend 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." They are about to release their long-awaited eighth album.
Hailing from New York City, DJ Lobsterdust has been mashing things up since 2006. As "one of the premiere mashup producers in North America" (Mashuptown.com) as well as a resident DJ at Bootie NYC, he mixes anything, from heavy metal to dub, and everything in-between, with a healthy dose of pop and electronic beats. Fatboy Slim called it "excellently eclectic stuff." If you've ever wondered what the Pixies would sound like with The Pussycat Dolls, or what Bob Marley would sound like as the frontman for Iron Maiden, then you won't want to miss this rare UK appearance.
Opening up the night will be London's own DJ Payroll and Instamatic, spinning the best bootlegs in the world ever.
Launched in San Francisco in 2003, Bootie was listed in Spin magazine as one of the U.S.A.'s "101 Best Nights Out," and has been voted "Best Dance Club" in SF for the past seven years. Bootie has since expanded its mashup sound and party around the world, and is still the only club night of its kind, now with parties in multiple cities on four continents including New York, London, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong and many more.
With mashup selections that keep one's brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, Bootie celebrates - and satirizes - pop culture, both past and present. Mixing and mashing every 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!
