Im from Germany and got into it when i listened to Gvcci Hvcci for the first time. I am into mad pop and also discoverd g o slow just at the same time. I even had struggle answering the "salems album is not" question because i rather like that aesthtic of beeing lost in LA so to speak than that witch darky stuff and did not were into it when they appeared.
I also listen to rap since i listen to dubstep, so spaceghostpurrp is doing it for me, too. I love deeply sad gangster samples and think that this is someway a good direction to go to.
For that reason i also got pretty much obsessed with dirty pharmaceuticals, his blog and the blog his as-it-seems-like friend wolfe margolies does. The g o slow video for summer rain is great,too. These ascii stuff is great because its happening in the internet with, like, people who are in the internet all the time and so it makes all sense.
I study arttheorie and design/design theory and maybe this is going to be some kind of a good thing.
