No doubt. Why doesn't this kind of thing happen in the US?

Well, when I saw him perform it was just with 2 turntables, a CD player and
a DJ mixer that evidently had a delay/looper built in. And a lot of really
cool records, of course. I heard a sample I recognized but couldn't quite
identify, so I paid attention when he took it off the turntable, recognised
the Deutch Gramaphone label, it was Stockhausen's "Gesang der Jungeling".
Also noticed bits of Satie and Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn on the
Dead Dreamer record, the guy definitely knows something about music.
