Eclectic Method is Jonny Wilson, audio-visual mash-up expert, and he's done a very special 'History Of House' AV collage that he wants to share with you lot via DJmag.com
Formerly a trio, EM have worked with Fatboy Slim, Faithless and even U2. They slimmed down to a one-person outfit a couple of years ago, with Jonny carrying on the innovative cutting-edge audio-visual work that EM have excelled in for more than a decade.
Jonny started audio-visual mixing as a teen in the '90s after working with Coldcut and Brian Eno on a music project helping the war-torn children of Bosnia rebuild their lives towards the end of the bloody Bosnian War.
EM did a hip-hop mash-up recently, and has now done one for house music – which he has given exclusively to DJ Mag. “House music's history is written in the songs that have rocked clubs from America to India, and has led to millions of kids ditching guitars for turntables,” Jonny says.
“The mix starts in 1977, jumps to 1984 and ends at some point around 2005,” he continues. “Because, let's face it, not much has really changed in house music since then. Correct me if I'm wrong?”
What do you think of the mix? What has Jonny left out? Should he have included all the tracks that he has? Let us know.
