Z-Trip's new album comes out 4/19/05. I respect Z-Trip because he's paid his dues as a turntablist before helping to foster the trendy mash-up scene. (Though Z-Trip asserts he is not a mash-up DJ, in this interesting article about mash-ups).
He even says the following:
- "It's sort of become the new karaoke, in my mind. You're at work, and someone's like, 'Hey, listen to what John did in Cubicle No. 4! It's pretty wacky: He did this thing with Christina Aguilera and the Strokes.' To me it's lost its appeal. And it's gone way, way out of the DJ realm."

Beck is such a tool, but that's why we love him.
