Endtroducing: This is the debut album by DJ Shadow. Like a surreal film soundtrack on which jazz, classical, and jungle fragments are artfully blended with turntable tricks and dialogue snippets, this album takes hip- hop into the next dimension. It is structured almost entirely out of sampled elements from various musical genres as well as samples from old television shows, interviews and percussion tracks. http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Shadow-Endtroducing/master/15313
Last week, Nas and DJ Shadow dropped “Systematic,” a new collab they recorded for the soundtrack to the new season of HBO’s Silicon Valley. In this short clip from Mass Appeal, Nas speaks briefly about Shadow’s beat inspiring his lyrics and how he has wanted to work with the producer since hearing “Nobody Speak,” his 2016 collab with Run The Jewels.
