well, at least for the beginning. i only have about half of it downloaded so far and it has just switched to another song, some wierd carnival music with a breakbeat. heh.

Yeah, the music is from D.J. Shadow.

Very cool animation, Thanks for the link!

I saw this video a while ago and cant get it to load right now but...i think the first track, the one with the organ, is called Organ Donor by Dj Shadow. The original is off of his album 'Endtroducing' and an "Extended Overhaul" can be found on the album 'Preemptive Strike'. Both are worth a listen...oh and the video is awsome.

H-h-h-h-h-head for the cave.

Thanks, that was awesome.

This was painful to download (had to restart 3 times).

It was also well worth it.

how big is the file? i've been downloading for an hour and am at 8.9 MB

It's pretty big, man. You're only half way there.

I can't believe how slow it is for people. When I found it I literally watched it in real time.

It's still breathing for me, but way heavy at 16.2MB and 3.5kb/s - try a swift download of Opera which will let you stop/resume/retry as long as you need without losing the file.

And what is the last track? Invisibl Skratch Piklz?

This was really, really awesome. The mind boggles at how this was shot.
Slight derail, but does anyone know any really great books about the history of graf? What very little I know, I've gleaned from Delillo's fictionalized account in Underworld. Got sources?

A truly brilliant video. Any more like it, please post.

NinjaPirate: The beat is from 'Meiso' which DJ Shadow remixed with DJ Krush. I think it's used with the " H-h-h-h-h-head for the cave" samples in the film DJ Q-Bert's Wave Twisters. A brilliant film with Q-Berts scratching. Q-bert remixed Shadow tracks for 1998's 'Preemptive Strike' bonus CD; 'Camel Bobsled Race'. A most bountiful relationship between two DJs.

Thanks rekka, I think I've got Bobsled Race hidden away in my collection somewhere. Its one of those CDs I bought years ago, listened to once and stashed away as "well, they lost my business".

Time for another go.
