endtroducing…the shadow

I mean what can I write about DJ SHADOW (AKA Josh Davis) that hasn’t been written before. According to legend and folklore homie pretty much invented the MPC in his secret Bay Area lair before producing one of the most influential albums of the last 20 years.

He’s worked with DAVID AXELROD, WON KAR WAI, JAMES LAVELLE, JAMES GADSON and CUT CHEMIST among others and even if you haven’t been feeling his music as of late you cannot argue that Shadow isn’t always experimenting with new sounds and techniques. He has no interest in retreading familiar territory. He’d rather be blazing new paths. Whether you like it or not.

And he’s been doing it since THE BEGINNING. Check this 1991 radio mix of Shadow from the Bay Area. He reps all the skills and style that would later make his music a worldwide phenomena and to think that this was all done before the SERATO BOX. I heard Shadow may have invented that too.
