‘Everything Has To End…’
“On January 18th 2004, Strictly Kev premiered the original ‘Raiding The 20th Century’ on XFM’s ‘The Remix’ show in London. It was a 40 minute attempt to catalogue the history of cut up music – be it avant garde tape manipulation, turntable megamixes or bastard pop mash ups.

Orchestras very gradually (accidentally?) uptuned to sound brighter. In the 19th century things stabilized around 440, for that “A” they all tune to before playing a piece…
