A Plus D
This is best evidenced by the success of their club Bootie, the first mashup bootleg party in the United States. Launched in San Francisco in 2003, Bootie has attracted mashup DJs from around the globe, and last year, opened a sister club in Los Angeles, further solidifying the DJ couple's renown as pioneers of the American mashup scene. When they're not huddled over a hot PowerBook playing with Ableton Live, or digital crate-digging for the latest bastard pop creations, the duo can be found at various parties, mixing an eclectic blend of electro, pop, rock, hip-hop, indie dance rock, and whatever else moves a dance floor. Quite simply, they know how to bring the party. They have played such events as private parties for the Scissor Sisters, gigs alongside Peaches and Princess Superstar, as well as spinning at events featuring artists from Lady Sovereign to Nina Hagen to The Killers.
The duo have also played overseas, with gigs in London, Amsterdam, and Paris. As mashup artists – working under their bootlegger moniker, A Plus D, the duo have seen their underground creations reach wide appeal. Their infamous Le Tigre vs. Missy Elliott bootleg, "Decepta-Freak-On," was not only hosted on Le Tigre's own web site, but was named one of the Top 11 Essential Mash-ups in Sarah "Ultragrrrl" Lewitinn's book, The Pocket DJ, and continues to get significant airplay on Sirius satellite radio. Most recently, their Kanye West vs.
Beethoven disco mashup, "Beethoven's Fifth Gold Digger," was added into the rotation as the "Mashup of the Week" on San Francisco alternative radio station Live105. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
