Inspired by a copyright discussion in an interview I had today, I remembered the important history lesson from the video above. The second half gives proof as to why loosened copyright laws in music will encourage creativity. Music startups like Mixcloud are at the forefront of a push for increased access to tunes. Increased access is giving listeners a plethora of influences from which to be inspired – heightening the opportunity for originality through variety and assimilation.

He/she/it makes funky, techy, ravey parcels of noise fun. Heavy on percussion and gritty synth work. Definitely not a reflection of the art work. Mr Spliffy anyone?
Be sure to show some love and visit the Gremino myspace where you can grab many more nangs…
