Influences among artists is an advantageous thread for DJs. Frank Zappa bought Edgard Varese records in his early teens. On the Fro Show, Jesse played "Dog Breath, In the Year of the Plague" from Zappa's 1969 Uncle Meat next to Varese's "Intégrales" The tracks sound different on first listen. But soak in how the high voices and the instrumental second half of Zappa's track about "stealing hubcaps" sound like the orchestral abstractions in Varese' piece. Zappa, and by extension Jesse, meld the inane with high art until there is no line separating them.
