I really like this song and clip, especially the way it melds two distinct feels together and ends abruptly. The first one (Itchy) has just enough timbral and rhythmic variability that it never gets boring or too predictable – it reminds me of a Skrillex track, actually, but less flashy-sweaty-on-drugs-excited. Lots of shifts in rhythmic emphasis too – lot of emphasis on the 4th beat in the bar, and then one section where it deliberately doesn’t emphasize the 4. Really cool. Clip is edited too to reflect the kind of bouncy rhythms as well. V neat. New rhythms when the Cornerboy rap comes in, but then we also get a sonic throwback to the Itchy beat.
Adam Curtis just cuts his ideas, rough hewn from the seam deep under ground.

This is one of my new favourites. I have some old favourites but this is my one of my new ones.
why do i keep this blog around still?
This takes me right back to 08/09 era Presets type stuff. Wonderful synth riffs. I want to listen to this while on some really good stuff.
