Fresh! Dancefloor Diplomacy brings us "collage music"

It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to pushing musical boundaries and artistic interpretations these days. Just received this video recently and wanted to share it with you. Just over 9 minutes in length, a group of 20 musicians play live snippets of 38 songs from a vast variety of genres going back 100 years in one take.

The band is called Dancefloor Diplomacy and they are calling this unique style "collage music".
