The fine, well labeled lines of Google Maps could show a clean format of your neighborhood, however without buildings, it looks too much like a two-dimensional spread of undeveloped tract real estate.

This experimentation under a range of different alter egos led to music being featured in various outlets, from online compilation CDs to primetime Channel 4 in the UK. It wasn’t until many years later that the ‘Damn You Mongolians’ project was born, inspired by the boom in UK ‘bass music’ and the rise of dubstep and drum and bass.
