NEW RELEASE TUESDAY! DJ Shadow – The Less You Know, The Better

October 4, 2011 in New Release Tuesday, Now Stream This! by rock6847

DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is one of the key figures in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style. Inspired by hip-hop’s early years, he then grew to absorb the likes Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy. On his 1996 debut, Endtroducing …, Shadow built a alternative world entirely out of assembled samples and the album created a nearly impossible standard that few hip-hop albums have been able to duplicate, let alone Shadow himself. We are pleased that after 15 years, DJ Shadow is releasing his fourth album, The Less You Know, The Better which is bassically a mix tape of his faves and his exploration into many genres and styles.
