Widely acknowledged as a crucial figure in the development of experimental instrumental hip-hop, Josh Davis, the Californian producer better known as DJ Shadow, released in 1996 his first full-length, “Endtroducing...”, to immense critical acclaim all over the world. The album has frequently been lauded as one of the most important works of the last 50 years, landing on countless “Best Of The ‘90s” lists and polls, including Rolling Stone and NME.

In 1998, Shadow produced tracks for the debut album by U.N.K.L.E., a long-time Mo’ Wax production team that gained superstar guests including Thom Yorke (of Radiohead), Richard Ashcroft (of The Verve), Mike D (of Beastie Boys), and others.

Featuring guests ranging from Run The Jewels and Nils Frahm to UK jazz artist Matthew Halsall, his latest album “The Mountain Will Fall” finds him exploring new realms in addition to the deep samples and kinetic soundscapes that helped launching his career 25 years ago.
