Bob cronin, known by the moniker DJ bc, is a boston-bred, atlanta based mash-up dj. Bc's work has been heard on radio and television internationally. Beginning in 2004 he co-hosted a mash-up night in boston, known as mash ave, with a fellow mash-up artist known as lenlow. He then founded and served as resident dj at the mash-up night bootie boston, which is held monthly in boston. He is currently working to establish a bootie nightclub in atlanta.
DJ Bc received both acclaim and controversy after his release of the self-made albums "the beastles" and "let it beast," by the beastles, a fictional band represented with the mash up of music from the beatles and the beastie boys. Both albums have since been removed, most likely at the request of apple records, the owner of all beatles intellectual property, including their songs. As a result of the beastles release, the boston phoenix marked him as boston's best lawbreaker, the detroit metro times marked his cd one of the best of 2004, and he was featured in newsweek, the washington post magazine, the boston globe and rolling stone. Some tracks from the first beastles album, along with other dj bc mashups and beastie boys bootlegs, were included on a rare 2-part limited vinyl release by the japanese record label hotshot records. "tripper trouble" was featured regularly on mtv brasil in 2005.
DJ Bc's followup project was glassbreaks, a ten-song album combining the music of philip glass with additional beats, production, and raps from such artists as the fugees, lil' john, q-tip and kanye west. Glassbreaks is also no longer available due to copyright issues.
