Currently on tour in Europe, DJ Shadow makes a welcome visit to New Zealand when he brings his groundbreaking Shadowsphere Tour down under for a headline show this July, following his performance at Splendour In The Grass in Australia.
DJ Shadow steps inside the Shadowsphere for a club performance at The Powerstation with support from Stinky Jim.
Displaying his formidable mixing and scratching skills with tunes old and new, Shadow works from turntables mounted in the centre of the Shadowsphere. The show offers sensory overload as the giant orb, rotating at Shadow’s will in front of a massive backdrop screen, displays stunning projected graphics and images as visually mesmerizing as the beats and breaks pounding from the speakers.
In 1996, Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow, unleashed his trip-hop hip-hop mixing mastery on the world with the release of his highly acclaimed debut album Entroducing!. The album took the world by storm and testament to its genius, the album continues to stand the test of time, cementing DJ Shadow’s position as one of the world’s most progressive producers and DJ.
Shadow followed up with albums including Pre-emptive Strike, The Private Press, The Outsider and the Bay Area EP, as well as producing numerous projects most notably on Mo’ Wax projects with James Lavelle such as UNKLE’s Psyence Fiction, plus working with DJ Krush, Blackalicious, Handsome Boy Modelling School, DJ Cut Chemist and others.
While the wait is on for DJ Shadow’s highly anticipated new album, don’t miss his incredible live show.
