DJ Shadow has announced a 25th anniversary edition of his landmark debut album, 'Endtroducing', which will arrive on Island Records this month.
The 1996 record was largely constructed using samples taken from old vinyl releases. Now the celebratory version promises to make those noises better than ever, with audio fully remastered and cut at half speed. According to the label this “results in significantly more detailed, high quality sound."
DJ Shadow has announced details of a new double album, to be titled 'Our Pathetic Age'.
Taking in 23 tracks in total, the album includes guest appearances from Nas, Run The Jewels, De La Soul and Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. The first part of the album will be a solo effort, while the second part is devoted to features.
"Despite the title, it's a hopeful, vibrant album," explains DJ Shadow, adding that "there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era... Our Pathetic Age."
DJ Shadow is selling parts of his personal record collection at an event at Highland Park in LA next month. The rare opportunity to own music from the legendary producer will go down on November 4th and 5th at 5636 York Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The sale will include posters, CDs, cassettes as well as vinyl from the San Francisco-based DJ. Shadow himself promises the records will be sold at “affordable prices” and that the records are “multiples” rather than items he no longer wants.
