Eclectic Method Takes Tarantino to Task
Eclectic Method are “readying the the New World (America) for the 2.0 A/V revolution”. Bewaring the Ides of March in their bid to conquer our country, they waited until April to launch their Spring offensive. Behold The Tarantino Mixtape
The (Not VJs) Remix trio hail from jolly old England and recently relocated 2/3rds of their organization to bracket the U.S. of A. by way of NYC and LA. Eclectic Method’s method works like this- take video, television, and film clips then remix the footage and sound to create big, banging, dance floor burners. All that is old is made new again.
