The Private Press by DJ Shadow

After basically completing sampledelia with 1996 debut album ‘Endtroducing…’ DJ Shadow took his sweet time over the follow-up - ‘The Private Press’, his sophomore LP, arrived a full six years later. On this record the plunderphonics came out to play once more, but Shadow also introduced an air of dystopian menace that has only grown stronger in his subsequent releases. The genesis of Oneohtrix Point Never, Flying Lotus and Iglooghost can all be heard if you listen closely.

DJ Shadow. A god to some perhaps. Always been a personal hero of mine and when I saw him live the other week he rocked my world in a slight hip hop bouncy fashion . Now his new album didn't impress me when I first heard it months ago. But after months and months of perseverance as I couldn't believe the man would make a bad record I've come to the conclusion that it's actually very very good indeed. If you're after entroducing part 2 then you'll be disappointed......stop reading now. If you're after a a more varied fresh largely instrumental cinematic hip hop album with tunes and a David Holmes groovy feel about it then you'll be well chuffed. The Private Press is total class....
