Endtroducing DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow began his music career as a disc jockey at the community radio station KDVS. During this period he was significant in developing the experimental hip hop style associated with the California-based Solesides record label. His early singles for the label, including In/Flux and Lost and Found (S.F.L.), were genre-bending works of art merging elements of funk, rock, hip hop, ambient, jazz, soul, and used-bin found records. DJ Shadow is often cited as a leading creator of trip-hop, though this is a label he strongly contests.

Shadow's first full-length work, Endtroducing....., was released in late 1996 to immense critical acclaim. Endtroducing would make the Guinness World Records book for "First Completely Sampled Album" in 2001. The only piece of kit Shadow used to produce the album is the AKAI MPC60 12bit sampling drum machine.

DJ Shadow es uno de los artistas más innovadores de la electrónica, con percusiones, samplers imposibles, voces remixeadas y locuras varias. Lo podremos ver y disfrutar en el Summercase. Se suma al impresionante cartelón del festival de este año.

no todo en el monte es rock... Open your mind.
