I've noticed somthing similar. I've talked to some of the local DJ's who
spin drum and bass, ambient, etc, stuff I like, and they're generally not
into collaboration, for whatever reasons. But I have found a hip-hop DJ,
who also happens to be a great drummer, who's really into creating new
stuff. He uses the "standard" hip-hop sources, but does some very cool
stuff with it. We did a show recently that felt great, I'm going to mp3 it
and put it on my website when I get a free minute...
