It’s been 20 years since Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow, unleashed his trip-hop hip-hop mixing mastery on the world with the release of his highly acclaimed debut album ‘Entroducing…’. The album took the world by storm and testament to its genius, the album continues to stand the test of time, cementing DJ Shadow’s position as one of the world’s most progressive producers and DJ.
Shadow followed up with albums including ‘Pre-emptive Strike’, ‘The Private Press’, ‘The Outsider’ and the ‘Bay Area EP’, as well as producing numerous projects most notably on Mo’ Wax projects with James Lavelle such as UNKLE’s ‘Psyence Fiction’, plus working with DJ Krush, Blackalicious, Handsome Boy Modelling School, DJ Cut Chemist and others.
2016 saw the release of his 5th studio album ‘The Mountain Will Fall’, once again showcasing the evolution and adventure that has defined Shadow’s career to date. “I try to force myself to change things on every record, and it’s why I feel that my music will always change,” says Josh. “It’s a bit preposterous to use old samplers when there’s so much more you can do with the new ones. We’d never have the amazing music that Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock did in the 1970s if they’d refused to use new synthesizers, which really defined what they did. It’s people like that that I look to for inspiration.”
Now listen to the sound of a mountain falling.
