DJ Shadow: Souled out?

Post  gary barry gordon on Wed Nov 25, 2009 10:36 pm

...Or sold out?

I honestly don't know.

I'm a big fan of the man, but he seems to be a marketing monster. He has released absolutely everything he's ever recorded on custom vinyl, CD or download. He re-releases a big bunch of stuff in limited edition. He's the DJ Hero. It seems if there's a turntable or a limited edition release, he's not too far away.

I still love [most of] his music, like with anyone. I won't deny any artist deserves to make money, but has Shadow become more about the dollar than the beats?

I don't begrudge anyone making money, as long as the music's good. My biggest concern is the utter shite he's churned out over recent times.

I don't really mind him marketing himself like he does, he deserves to make money. Id would do the same if I was in his shoes. I remember when I used to skate people used to comnplain about all the pro skaters with TV shows and games etc. In my eyes if your in the industry then your try and get all you can from it.

Like Pidge said, its only a cause for concern when the standard of quality drops!

So sad, because the geezer's got genius when he chooses to use it.

Like maybe this one:



Genius.

I agree about his more recent stuff not being much chop. But here's a coupla remixes I do dig, from his Mashin' On The Motorway/Walkie Talkie EP.

Nuthin' like pent up anger.


I love a good mash up.


And this is the track that got me into Shadow. I heard it on 3MU, which is/was a Uni radio station.

Hit the nail right on the head!

But for when he was good here is a selection of his original samples mixed up by Fraykerbreaks:
