DJ Shadow…


Not often we post without some form of preview, freebie or video, but DJ Shadow is rightly regarded as one of the most influential and consistently innovative artists to emerge from music in the last 20 years, has four collections of his finest recordings released today via UMe.

‘Reconstructed: The Best Of DJ Shadow’ will be released on one single CD and double vinyl, while ‘Reconstructed: The Definitive DJ Shadow’ will be issued as a multi-disc box set.

Limited to 500 copies worldwide, each set will be individually signed by DJ Shadow and will include 8 discs, 1 x 12” vinyl record, as well as a booklet, featuring an essay by acclaimed music writer Dave Tompkins, and numerous photos, some exclusive, by long time Shadow collaborator B+.

With stunning artwork and design by Trevor Jackson, the box set is the most ambitious and comprehensive retrospective ever assembled to represent Shadow’s output:

“It’s never an easy task to sum up a career in one release,” says Shadow, “but this box comes pretty close. This is the definitive, final document of the sound I’m most known for.”

The box will be available exclusively from his website.

All the music across the three formats is drawn from Shadow’s 20-year career – from the early pre-Mo Wax days, right up to the present and his most recent album, The Less You Know, The Better. Perhaps most exciting to Shadow fans is the inclusion of two brand new tracks, including the pop masterpiece ‘Listen’, featuring legendary vocalist Terry Reid.
