People Like Us

Under the guise of People Like Us, British sound collagist and DJ Vicki Bennett blends samples from music, radio and television in a Cut Up style to form "plagiarhythmic" new melodies. A frequent theme of her music is the extraction of familiar snippets of popular music, which are subsequently interrupted or morphed just when the listener has begun to feel comfortable with what they're hearing. This style has been dubbed "irritainment".

He's a rock singer-turned-DJ who fronts the world's only mashup band. She's a party girl-turned-DJ who helped create the biggest mashup club in the world. Together, they're "rebel DJs" Adrian & the Mysterious D. Known mostly as the couple who helped bring mashup culture to America, the duo have forged a reputation as crowd-pleasing selectors who not only shamelessly bridge the gap between genres, but between the alternative and the mainstream. This is best evidenced by the success of their club Bootie, the first mashup bootleg party in the United States.
