Not long after sitting down with DJ RTC on Closed Sessions Radio for an interview, DJ Shadow was in the headlines once again as of consequence of his set being cut short in Miami by promoters that deemed the material “too futuristic” and a video of the event surfaced the internet almost immediately with outrage by the DJ’s fans.
This past weekend the full set was put up on DJ Shadow’s soundcloud alongside a very detailed statement which you can read below:
“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”
