Not sure if you all noticed my Tweet the other week when I first stumbled upon the genius of Kutiman remixing YouTube videos (thanks to Merlin Mann over at 43Folders) but I just found a cool article about it...
Kutiman's ThruYou Mashup Turns YouTube Into Funk Machine
(via The Underwire from Wired.com):
"'I downloaded a clip from a drummer, who I now realize is Bernard Purdie, who's sessioned on all kinds of records,' Kutiman said. 'All it needed was some bass and guitar; I loved the idea that I was playing along with him and he didn't even know it. But once I decided to download another clip and play over it, I thought, 'Why not get another video to play over it?' Since then, I haven't really slept or eaten. I lost track of night and day. I'd just pass out and wake up on the computer. I was fascinated by the idea. It was so magical.'"
