There are dickhead DJs (looking at you David Guetta), and there are dickhead DJs. Anklepants falls into the latter category.

Mensrea is a Latin term still used today by the legal fraternity to mean 'with a guilty mind'. But like all words from that ancient language it carries an inherent poetry that describes an atmosphere of sinister indulgence.

 

It is the treacherous and dark atmosphere associated with the word that inspired Melbourne singer/composer Jess Koch to use it as the title of her dark...

I can’t help but feel that to refer to DJ Spooky as merely a spinner of records would be a gross understatement. A truly multidisciplinary artist, you are just as likely to have heard his name in the context of his well-renowned, mind-bending electronic and hip hop sounds as you are his work as a music critic and writer, magazine publisher, filmmaker, and social and environmental justice...
