Yes it is DJ Shadow. Its about time we showed you some songs from an American (yes American, No im not pulling your leg) DJ. This meistro of music is well known for his incredible variety in music, ranging from hip-hop to even some electro out there. I started listening to this guy after hearing his amazing DJ Hero Mixes ,most of them using the Six Days Remix (ft Mos Def) , which is a very respectable track to be honest.
Born in San Jose, California as Joshua Davis nearly 40 years ago, This dude has been working on his skills for a long time. Of all the DJs out there, I consider him to be the first true Sample whore, creating entire albums out of samples (Endtroducing anyone? It got a guiness world record). i want you guys who love DP and Deadmau5 to give him a try. You dont have to Like him, just give him a chance. here's some of his more well known tracks to get you to like him more.
