Live Shadow

I kind of sort of started a new job this week, so I'll apologize in advance if things slow down any around here. I'll try to keep things flowing as normally as possible and keep paying it forward when I find something interesting.

Check out this video of DJ Shadow from the 2001 documentary Scratch, which examines the cultural and historical perspectives on the birth and evolution of hip-hop disc jockeys (DJs), scratching and turntablism and includes interviews with some of hip-hop's most famous and respected DJs. Check out that basement filled front-to-back with vinyl as far as you can see. That must be like the fountain of youth for an audiophile.

Below is a live set from DJ Shadow that was broadcast in 2002.
