AFAIK there isn't a source client that will do both.  If your stream 
format is in OGG you could use a player to play the playlist and capture 
from the DSP.  If you want the stream in MP3 you might want to try 
liveice for the DSP capture.

If you mean to stream both MP3 and OGG in the same stream I don't think 
icecast will do that, nor any clients play it.
