DJ ShadowEndtroducing (3CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... $39.99 49.98
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark. A number of years down the line, Endtroducing holds up stands the test of time as an instrumental hip hop LP, and even sort of an avant rock album – giving it a timeless feel that obliterates any trendy pigeonholes! Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod (though some of us were hip to him all along) and Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveler in the coloristic approach he uses – and never forgets the funk! This great 3CD edition includes the classic original album on Disc One – with "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World" – the bonus album Excessive Ephemera on Disc Two – and the all new (circa 2016) remix album Endtroducing Re-Emagined on Disc Three – with remixes by Adrian Younge, Lee Bannon,. Hudson Mohawke, Daedelus and others! CD

✨✧ DJ ShadowMountain Will Fall ... CD
Mass Appeal, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
DJ Shadow at his most stylistically sprawling –doing his thing as distinctively as ever, unpredictable from one track to the next, but very much himself whether it's a sample and scratches cut reminiscent of the Entroducing era or beats-enriched avant jazz or keyboards-heavy tracks! Lots of different moods at play here, whether it's topical rap with Mass Appeal label mates Run The Jewels, or atmospheric hip hop jazz with Dusty Groove favorite Mathew Halsall. You gotta hand it to Shadow for following his muse, regardless of expectations! Titles include "The Mountain Will Fall", the barbed, timely "Nobody Speak" with Run The Jewels, the modern mood jazz standout "Ashes To Oceans" with Matthew Halsall, "California", "Ghost Town", "Three Ralphs", "Depth Change", "Mambo", "Suicide Pact", 'The Sideshow" with Ernie Fresh and more.
