dub orange at first listening i did not like it that much, but now it is on heavy rotation & i bought the vinyl also. josh dig deeper into electro, only very few samples, with infusions of kraftwerk and a kind of retro 80s vibe, but in his own way. love it! look forward to the gig, josh live is always amazing. thanx, josh! Favorite track: Witches Vs. Warlocks.

DJfloodMUSIC Cinematic, deep nostalgic synth vibes that bring to mind smoky alleyways behind neon-lit nightclubs and vans racing with helicopters through the desert. Favorite track: The Prophecy.

256 Pi happy to see Shadow continue to do his own thing and keep forging new paths for himself. this feels like a natural extension & evolution of the more experimental stuff he was doing on the first half of his last album Favorite track: Reflecting Pool.

spacecowboy83 I am not sure exactly how, but every song I have heard so far makes me feel nostalgic. I am super appreciative that it's not confined to any one genre, more like i am listening to an era. You can hear how much fun you had making this and that is so awesome. Thank you! Favorite track: A Narrow Escape.

Drake Woodruff I am not sure how DJ Shadow did it but he really captured the '70s Choose Your Own Adventure vibe on this album! Lovin' it! Favorite track: You Played Me.

about

I’m excited to announce to you that my new album is almost here.
Drumroll please…the title of the new album is…
ACTION ADVENTURE

…And I’m REALLY excited about it. There are 14 tracks, and all but one is instrumental. This, by definition, places it closer to Endtroducing and The Private Press in terms of personality and feel, but this is no throwback. The songs represent my continued evolution as a producer and songwriter, and I can honestly say that I couldn’t have made these tracks even a few years ago. Objectively, I hear maturity and growth. The arrangements are sophisticated but efficient, the programming more deliberate. As the title would imply, there’s a wide variety of moods and a premium on melody and texture, with the intention of maximum emotional impact.

Why no big-name collabs? I guess after my last two albums, which had a TON of guests, I needed to get personal and make music for myself again. I didn’t want to compromise or write music to give someone else a runway, I wanted to force myself to permeate every available sonic space and “own” the total composition. Time after time, I found myself writing songs that felt vocal-resistant somehow, so rather than fighting something organic, I embraced the challenge…and “Action Adventure” is the result. I can’t wait for you to hear it!

The album will be out on October 27th. As always, thank you for your support, and stay tuned for more announcements coming soon!
