The 00's generation
“All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain,” goes the Roy Batty/Blade Runner sample on Zomby’s ‘Tears In The Rain’, and it’s entirely apt for this exercise in undead uncanniness: Blade Runner was frequently sampled in the rave and hardcore that is ruff and readily reconstructed on Where Were U.
The 00s generation have much in common with replicants – immersed in a culture given over to retrospection, it is as if they have had other people’s memories implanted into their minds. In the end, though, the album contradicts Batty’s plaint – in the digital age, nothing is lost; everything comes back.
