Name That Tune

At the Frankfurt Musikmesse '04, Powercore did a demo of some of it's latest Whizzbang equipment to let DJ's apply less-fake sounding filters to music samples and other fun things. The guy who did the presentation, Jim Motley,
seems like an absolute spaz, and it's kinda fun to see how into it he is. Here's for the question - does anyone recognize the music that he's messing with in there? It seems like a British version of Ozomatli, which could be a fun thing.
I can't get this outta my head. Anyone recognize it?

Here's Jim, freakin' out.
More videos here.

Sorry I have no idea, but I just have to say that's the scariest dude I've ever seen. Yikes!

I wouldn't be surprised if it was an in-house production created specifically for the demo. I would think they'd need to clear the usage of a commercial song, so they probably had some of their in-house music enthusiasts come up with the mix. Usually, however, I don't think they put vocals together -- maybe they did because of the vocoder demo, though.

Of course, I have no clue. Just a thought.

I tried googling what little pieces of lyrics I could discern from the song to no avail. "coming back from hell again" and "great to be alive" didn't get me anywhere :\

OMG, what an annoying individual! A good argument for inventing a time machine, going back in time, and making sure Quicktime was never invented.

Thanks for the help, folks. I'm going to have to do what I feared most- Contact Mr. Motley. If I don't post again in 15 days, send some flowers to my mum.
