This is just further proof that the late Malcolm McLaren was a true visionary of this music game. Read this article (from 1983, almost 30 years ago). The stuff he's talking about: the DIY culture of home DJ's, producers and consumers taking control of their music and remixing & remaking it in any fashion they want has all come to pass in this current internet era of music. Mash-up and remix culture is exactly what Mclaren was envisioing when he want to New York and made the cut-up, scratch hip hop classic, "Buffalo Gals."
