from a dj's standpoint (or just a music freak's), what Z-Trip does is pretty mind-scrambling...
mashing those ideas together takes someone with a pretty amazing ear. if y'aller into bootlegs and mashup remixes, you should check out
(soulwax put out the ultimate bootleg mixtapes called "too many dj's" - i'm talking velvet underground and dolly parton within 15 minutes of each other!
see y'all on the boats - watch out for "The 'Cid Set" Volume 1, making the rounds starting August 15, 2003.
The 'Cid Sets are DJ sets designed for the chemically-impared festival goer. Anywhere from 3 - 6 hours in length, they run the musical gamut, incorporating 30 + years worth of music into one big, swirling, musical trip.
Done on 3 digital turntables and using nature sounds, chants, spoken word and speeches, and other sound effects, "The 'Cid Sets" are unlike anything you've experienced before.
Volume 1 "Welcome to the 'Cid Set" includes Shpongle, the Greatful Dead, Bjork, the Orb, Lee Coombs and Led Zeppelin (just a few)...

PS. I want Red Stripes and Pacifico myself;).
