Editors’ Notes

While most rappers give answers, DJ Shadow questions his audience. What does your soul look like? What does midnight in a perfect world sound like? How can you build steam with a grain of salt? This Davis, California DJ thinks visually, to the point that the mid-song interludes on "Transmission 1-3" seem influenced by the movie Angel Heart. Throughout, Shadow weaves sampled elements (sustained piano loop and a tricked-out chorale over a beat) into a beautiful suite. All cracks and pops on the album are real, a remnant of Endtroducing's magical cut-and-paste art form. This sonic confessional was just what hip-hop needed in 1996-a temperate, patient instrumental record filled with moods and emotions that still linger and resonate today.

Customer Reviews

One of the best recordings in modern history

Really... it doesn't matter what musical background you're coming from, be it classic rock, funk, hip-hop, classical, or bluegrass. This album is an essential for any music collection. If Mozart were alive today he would be banging this out on his harpsicord.

More than a hip-hop classic...

This album was and still is ground breaking. DJ Shadow created an album that reached out to people beyond hip-hop. It infused new ideas and thoughts to the genre while staying true to its roots. This album helped pave the way for the DJ to become a star in the music world and also helped launch "trip hop" artists into mainstream. Every song tells a story and the album becomes a book you can't put down. Buy this album, put your headphones on and listen, listen alot, and you will never look at hip hop the same again...

DJ Shadow's Josh Davis is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. His early singles for the label, including "In/Flux" and "Lost and Found (S.F.L.)," were all-over-the-map mini-masterpieces combining elements of funk, rock, hip-hop, ambient, jazz, soul, and used-bin finds. Although he'd already done a scattering of original and production work (during 1991-1992 for Hollywood Records) by the time Mo'...
