I love breaks and this is a classic one.
dunno why he's having a go at squarepusher though...
i can;t find the original blog post by one of sasha frere jones' circle...dissecting the inherent racism within'idm' and how its fans treasured the 'stuttering' and 'glitch' effects etc to differentiate themselves from break based music as much as possible..so the black roots of electronic music were finally erased
or something like that
i can;t find the original article with teh massive controversy it created
just saying a lot of the IDM crowd are chin stroking 'highbrow' types. Which is fair enough, really. I still don't think anyone comes close to Remarc in terms of dedicating a whole career to mangling the amen break, and really pushing sample editing forward as a result.
If anyone's interested I wrote a 6000 word dissertation on the amen break, I'd be glad to send you a copy...
