Product Details
Sometimes referred to as "the Miami Bass mix," this is Shadow spinning live in the studio for Steve Lamacq's radio show on the BBC. Prior to the mix, Shadow and James Lavelle were interviewed about the upcoming Psyence Fiction LP. Shadow recounts, "It was one of several times that I mixed live on the air for the BBC. The studios are really small, and it's usually rented gear, so you're never quite sure how the turntables are going to behave. I was happy with the mix, though...I was in a phase where I was falling in love again with a lot of late '80s club tracks I used to like. Again, it probably made no sense to the fans listening in, but I suppose at the time I was trying to articulate to all of these 'Big Beat' groups what real club music should sound like."

DJ Shadow Handmade:
It's a well-known fact that Shadow is a vinyl enthusiast. For people who love music, there's no replacing the warmth of a physical mold with grooves. Some people also prefer the ease and portability of CDs, and still others may find that traditional MP3 downloads are insufficient for their needs. For all of those reasons (and all of those people,) we are proud to announce DJ Shadow Handmade. Simply put, this is the ultimate collecting experience for Shadow fans that have it all. Quality and attention to detail is obvious, with all records pressed on extra-pure, 180-gram vinyl. The heavy paste-on, or "tipped sleeve" jackets are die-cut and hand stamped.

What about the music, you say? Shadow has raided his cupboard and turned loose DAT tapes, CD-R's, and cassettes from his own personal archive, unveiling mixes, live performances, and alternate versions of songs, many of which have never been heard before. In some cases, the mere existence of this material is an accident. Several of the live shows, for example, were confiscated from venue employees who were making their own recordings. Still others were made at Shadow's request, to archive a set that would never again be performed. Shadow reports that it has been a hair-raising process: "So many DAT tapes and CDs have become corrupted or broken," he laments. "I'm just glad to have salvaged whatever bits I could before they disappear, too."

As Shadow looks forward to his next wave of new music, fans can revel in some of the gems unearthed during his exhaustive archiving project. How long will they be available? "Until I feel like the demand has been filled," says Shadow. "I definitely don't want to be in 'glory days' mode forever... Once the new album is together, it'll be all about the future again. For now, though...enjoy!"
