Josh Davis, also known as DJ Shadow, is often seen as one of the founders of instrumental hip hop. His debut album “Endtroducing” from 1996 made a huge splash worldwide and has been the inspiration of countless DJ’s, musicians and producers with his revolutionary production style. The album also made it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the very first “album completely created from samples”.
Late last year he released his fifth studio album “The Mountain Will Fall”, which features collaborations with Run The Jewels and Nils Frahm, to name a few. DJ Shadow has been expanding his musical spectrum and that of his listeners since the beginning. Old school hip hop tracks, soul, funk, classical music and jazz are interspersed with electronics, acid house and dope beats.
