"I think Sonic Youth are a really important band in terms of compositional structure, tuning structure -- a lot of that frees the guitar up from normal chord progression. I call it urban drift guitar. I really like the fact that they let the songs unfold over a period of time and come back to certain points. It's really past a conventional formulaic approach. But on another level, it's much more funky. Which makes it a bit more in tune with DJ-thinking." -- DJ Spooky
