DJ Shadow’s Boiler Room mix

12.12.11

“On this one I wanted to take it back to my essence of DJ-ing, right?” said DJ Shadow to woops and cheers at the beginning of his set at Boiler Room last week. “The first record I bought when I was ten years old was ‘The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash
On The Wheels of Steel’ and that’s what this is kind of about – it’s all the samples I used to make the record I just put out.” This 30-minute showcase of his sampling prowess, and essential background listening for Shadow’s latest album ‘The Less You Know the Better’, is one to savour. Props, Boiler Room.
