The Shogun Audio don is on fire

I've just asked Thomas Green, aka Rockwell, one of d&b's hottest producers and DJs of 2013, who is No.1 on his wish list of collaborators. He's thinking about it. I ponder which jungle/d&b legend he's going to opt for. 
“Ian Mackaye,” he says. Nods affirmatively. “Definitely. I'm obsessed with Fugazi and Minor Threat. It's my first love in music — hardcore punk, I love Black Flag and Henry Rollins as well — in fact I went to see his spoken word show a few weeks ago. Ian MacKaye I think probably wouldn't be very into the kind of music I'd make so the results would be... interesting. But, yeah, I would love to work with him.”
Of course, such genre-bending surprise should be of NO surprise to anyone who's properly listened to Rockwell.
