Destiny's Child vs The Cardigans - "My Favorite Name"

About a year and a half ago we introduced you to Indie's mashup DJ Paul V. as he was celebrating the one-year anniversary of Bootie LA, the monthly dance party fueled by the current day's mashups.

Since then Bootie LA has moved from the Echo to Safari Sam's but the party hasn't missed a step. Matter of fact, tonight Bootie LA is welcoming French mashup pioneers and Sony recording artists, Loo & Placido, who have been mixing it up since 2001.

Paul writes us to say:

Since [2001], the duo has created over 200 mashup tracks and dropped some of the biggest dancefloor bangers ever, mashing everyone from The Beatles to The Killers to Peaches to Daft Punk and countless others. In 2004, the duo was enlisted by MTV to produce 18 exclusive mixes for their "MTV MASH" program, as well as creating a series of "mini mashes" that blended MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS nominees' tracks, which aired on the broadcasts from 2004-2007. If only MTV US was as daring! At the end of '04, their XFM "Superchunk" bootleg mix was voted 'Best Studio Session" by host Eddie Temple Morris.

But the proof is in the pudding, so after the jump enjoy some MP3s from Loo & Placido...
