DJ Shadow – Live in LA 10/31/09

That cover pretty much says it all. While the man’s official output since the seminal Endtroducing has been… inconsistent, his DJ sets are usually on point.

Official Verbiage:

2010 German issue limited edition CD album featuring a live set by DJ Shadow spinning tracks from a crate of vinyl across 3 turntables in a small ballroom at LA’s Park Plaza Hotel at ‘The Halloween Masquerade Benefit Ball’ event organised by KCRW, on 31st October 2009 – almost an hour and twenty minutes of continuous mix!

‘I’m not immune to playing a hit or two; sometimes it’s necessary to show the audience that I’m not conducting an educational seminar. But here we are in the Serato age, with access to millions of songs and DJ’s are still playing the same fifty over and over again… FROM THEIR LAPTOPS. There’s something wrong with that. That’s why to the extent that I am able, I insist on playing vinyl. After all, some songs went out of print for a reason!’ DJ Shadow
