Joshua Paul “Josh” Davis a.k.a. DJ Shadow, is an American record producer and DJ. He is a prominent figure in the development of instrumental hip hop and first gained notice with the release of his highly acclaimed debut studio album, Endtroducing….. (1996).
20 years on and DJ Shadow continues to impress with his sonic mash-ups, awash with inventive ideas and dynamic collaborations (Run the Jewels, Nils Frahm, Ernie Fresh etc). Wildly unpredictable, DJ Shadow infuses organic guitar sounds, unique percussive beats to create different tones, atmospheres and ‘feels’ throughout. There is a warm and visceral vibe to the proceedings unlike much of modern electronica.
“Nobody Speak”, “Bergschrund”, “Depth Charge”, “Ashes to Oceans”.
Madlib, UNKLE, Cut Chemist.
Still on top of the game, the pioneering DJ Shadow demonstrates with the innovative The Mountain Will Fall that despite the numerous pretenders to his throne, he still rules!
