It's a fact: technology is turning our once enlarged planet into something resembling a neighbourhood. Obviously, this has it's pros and cons. Effects of events which were once considered localised now seem to impinge on individuals worldwide, regardless of location. On the plus side however, advances in communication are allowing relationships, both personal and professional, to prosper in a way never thought possible. Wildcat inspired Ocelot are a fine example of musicians taking advantage of this seismic shift in the cultural workings of our world.

I know technology is making things a little easier but how Texan Cory Kilduff and Brit Jimmy Welsh get anything done beats me. At the very least it must be nothing short of a logistical nightmare. Nonetheless, Ocelot and accompanying record label, iheartcomix, are creating something of a stir on the so called 'blogesphere'. Arresting remixes, which subscribe to the 'fuck the original' school of thought, and near euphoric production work, all make for an addictive listen if nothing else. You'll see what I mean:
