Girl Talk – “Feed the Animals”

Call me late on this one but I just found out about this DJ. Girl Talk is the stage name of musician Gregg Gillis. I gave his work a listen and I kept bumping it. He is known for using mash ups of unauthorized samples from songs; The New York Times Magazine even called his music “a lawsuit waiting to happen.” Check him out.
