For music fans and creators, there’s always something special about the artist who changes everything for you; who opens the door to new sounds, possibilities, forms of expression. For me, DJ Shadow is one of those artists. Discovering his music in my teens lead me to a great deal of the music I love today, from record collecting culture and electronic music to corners of the hip-hop universe I hadn’t been aware of until that point. Shadow has always been a great inspiration to me, and it’s an honor to be warming up for his Brooklyn appearance tomorrow.
Shadow’s DJ sets are always something special, covering a huge range of music, and all put together with serious skills on the cut, trick mixing, etc. I’ll be starting things off with a straight-ahead hip-hop set, and I’m amped to break out some rap tunes that have been neglected in some of my more eclectic sets lately. Pre-sale tickets are unfortunately sold out, but there will be a limited quantity of tickets available at the door starting around 6 PM. Hope to see some of you there if you’re coming to the show!
