I finally got to sit down and watch Michael Aris’ ‘Tekkon Kinkreet’ on Blu-Ray this weekend. Coming to the movie completely cold – not having read Taiyō Matsumoto’s original manga, and knowing little about the production’s genesis, I really enjoyed it.

Stumbled across this yesterday; cool little clip following one of my favourite Detroit producers Theo Parrish as he wanders the streets of Motor City, recording sounds and ambiances before taking them back to his studio, chopping them up and making beats with ’em on his MPC. Worth checking out:
