As you may recall there was quite a big pre-holidays brouhaha when DJ Shadow was kicked off the set at Miami night club by its promoters for playing a set deemed too progressive for the venue’s clientele. In the incident’s aftermath, the club apologized and Shadow promised to share the set in question at some point. And now, here it is – an hour and a half mix of bass, juke, Miami bass etc. that commences with a sampled voice declaring, “I am not gonna do it the way you want I will never be able to do it your way… I’m not doing it any other way than the best that I can do. And if you’re not satisfied with my best then that’s too fucking bad.”
Listen, download and read the official statement from Shadow’s site below.
Beginning in the Summer of 2012 with his Low End Theory guest spots, DJ Shadow’s “All Basses Covered” set has morphed and evolved to incorporate as many different contemporary genres of urban and electronic music as possible. From hardcore rap to footwork and juke and beyond, Shadow has combed the web to curate seamless and dexterous blends of the most progressive sounds bubbling up from the underground. ‘Too hard?’ ‘Too future?’ Or just too raw? As always, DJ Shadow has provoked crucial flashpoints of discussion about the discipline of DJ’ing that have defined our turbulent times.
