As you may have heard, last weekend DJ Shadow was unceremoniously asked to stop DJ-ing at a gig on his All Basses Covered tour at club Mansion in Miami for playing a set that was deemed "too futuristic" by the club's promoters. The incident was captured on fan video and Shadow fans on the Interwebz had a field day bashing the club and its promoters. Now, Mansion has issued a formal public apology to the DJ/producer.
Mansion Nightclub, Miami:
"We offer our most sincere apologies to DJ Shadow and his fans for his set being cut short at Mansion this past weekend. This error should not have happened and will not happen again, especially as we pride ourselves on creating an environment that cultivates and respects innovators such as DJ Shadow. We have learned a lot from this error and made changes within our organization to ensure that Mansion’s vision, and the vision of our guests, will never be compromised again."
Whether this means Shadow will be invited back to Mansion is anyone's guess. But based on one of Shadow's post Mansion-gate tweets from last week everyone involved may just wanna keep it moving.
I appreciate everyone's support. Obviously I should have never been booked there in the first place. Square peg in a round hole, etc #iDoMe
