Minnetonka High School students play DJ Shadow
video of the Minnetonka High School percussion ensemble playing songs from DJ Shadow's 1996 instrumental hip-hop classic Endtroducing (the footage made the internet rounds in September). With some amazing mimicry of the sampled drum breaks, the students play "Building Steam with a Grain of Salt" (used to haunting effect in Dark Days) followed by "Changeling." I would have been so much more into jazz ensemble if we'd played songs like this when I was in high school. Beautiful.
