DJ Shadow is an American legend. His album Endtroducing, released in 1996 was the first album to be recorded with only samples. Times magazine rates it among its top 100 albums of all time! He has been spinning since the early 1990′s, getting his start as a DJ for the UC Davis radio station. Although sampling is his specialty, Shadow is well-known for mixing up his styles. He is heavily influenced by San Francisco hyphy beats and vice versa. I saw his set live at Coachella and I can say that he plays just about everything, even dubstep. His set performed in his famous sphere stage was one of the best shows I’ve seen by a turntablist.
