    In my travels I have come across some strange connections between artists I wouldn't expect:

    Engineer Rob Campanella mastered Chief Nowhere's debut, as well as Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Quarter After, and Mia Doi Todd.

    Chi-A.D. is Dave Young. He started out playing synths for black metal pioneers Venom under the pseudonym VMX. Later well known for being a part of UK Hardtrance act The Secret and Goa act Chi-A.D.

    Jesse Sykes, relation to Jamie Sykes of Burning Witch?

    Galloglass features guest solos by Curran Murphy (Nevermore, Annihilator) and Jeff Waters (Annihilator) on their second album, Heavenseeker.

    Outstanding stoner doom outfit Witch consists of members from Dinosaur Jr. and Feathers, among others.

    BS 2000 once toured with Le Tigre in Japan. This might not strike you as odd if you didn't know that BS 2000 is the side project of the Beastie Boys ' own Adam "Adrock" Horovitz. BS 2000 also contributed the track The Scrappy to the Jet Set Radio Future soundtrack.

    1995... It was the year of Oklahoma City bombing, launch of Yahoo!, Windows 95 upgrade, Nasdaq climbing over 1000, and the acquittal of O. J. Simpson. It was the 50th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb, the announcement of DVD format, and the launch of eBay. But for me it was a year of newly reborn music. It was the commercial success of electronica, the acceptance of IDM as a genre, the underground warehouse parties, and the letters PLUR smudged on my sweaty wristband. In this article, I wish to commemorate the year of 1995, remembering the monumental albums and the artists that continued to buildup on the foundation of electronic music. My purpose is to honor the contributions that still retain their quality and the position on my playlists. Take a look and see how many of these albums are in your collection. Pay attention to the currently well known names that had their first debut back in 1995. And, if after reading this article you dust off a few CDs or even 12-inchers, then my task has been accomplished.
