Biography

Known mostly as galvinizers of the international mashup scene, the duo Adrian & the Mysterious D aka A Plus D have forged a hard-earned reputation as crowd-pleasing selectors who not only shamelessly bridge the gap between genres, but between the alternative and the mainstream.


Bootie specializes in mashups, which are also known in some places as “bootlegs.” So what’s a mashup? What’s a bootleg? It’s pretty much all the same. Also known as “bastard pop,” a bootleg is a song that’s “mashed-up.” Usually, this means the vocal track of one song is mixed over the instrumentation of another. Using audio editing software, DJs and mashup artists combine different artists and musical genres to create new and unique songs that are often greater than the sum of their parts. Imagine Michael Jackson rocking out with Nirvana, David Bowie crooning with MGMT, Madonna fronting Daft Punk, or Kanye West rapping with Beethoven, and many other unexpected combinations! Can’t imagine that? Then get your ass to Bootie to hear for yourself!



This is best evidenced by the success of their club Bootie, the first and biggest mashup bootleg party in the United States. Launched in San Francisco in 2003, Bootie has attracted mashup DJs from around the globe, and the couple have since launched sister clubs in Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Munich, Boston, Berlin, Vienna, and Brisbane, Australia, and have done one-offs from Brazil to Beijing, further solidifying their renown as pioneers of the ever-growing.
