Websites (info only):

– Ninjatune fan site, but very complete. check the bottom set of links = they pose as a soft agency, interesting):

Def Beat Remixes (index)

Downloads (mostly Rapidshare >> sign of the times hm? beware of dL limit):

Krush, Def Beat Remixes vol 4
Mr Scruff – RBMA Podcast (RBMA = Red Bull Music Academy, an imprint of RB fostering forward thinking music in a strong way)
Tablism (via sanpasquale)
JDilla (via sanpasquale)

Antipop Consortium APC 1996 97 98
– link is alive for only couple days.  APC is like a predecessor to SA-RA, in being a Black crew combining glitchy/techiness with hip hop, but is more traditional underground in the experimental, Anticon way (indicative of their time period, pre-“bling”), whereas SA-RA draws from Afu-Ra/Parliament Funkadelic/Sly Stone, hypster fashion, and the hip pop format (post-“bling”).

Daedulus – Retrospective
– LA glitch man.  Earlier on was very idm/ambient/electronica, but now has hit the crazy lazers and explosions incarnation of ‘glitch-hop.’  Look for his work as “Adventure Time” though, as that was a VERY well done project.

Deodato (via sanpasquale)
– Deodato is in the same era and musical league as David Axelrod, Joe Bataan, Mizell Brothers, and Giorgio Moroder.  Learn.

Look up anything by (especially remixes by):

Cinematic Orchestra
Quantic
