    dj shadow is best known for his sample based music, "entroducing" was a milestone and a classic by now.
    josh has developed his style to more electronic music with modular synths, which some of his old fans don't like a lot, it is rhe same with amon tobin.
    for me "the mountain will fall" is a real masterpiece and the shadow album i listened to the most, it grows and grows, here is so much to discover!
    i saw josh 2 times live, one concert was on the mountain tour, which was amazing and mindblowing, this year he will come again to berlin, i look forward to it.

        One of the best releases of 2016 as far as electronic music goes. Cant understand the low ratings. Well done mr. Shadow.
