DJ Shadow - Scale It Back

DJ Shadow
Scale It Back
Island (UK)
Josh Davis (aka DJ Shadow) recently released his new album, 'The Less You Know, The Better' and also has completed a sold out UK tour, back end of 2011. The album is such an epic journey. It has so many dimensions you keep finding, the more times you listen to it. Honestly, wasn't blown away by it on the first few listens but give it some time and you'll find some of DJ Shadow`s eclectic skills working some original magic.

Move forward to 2012, already doing the rounds with some choice selectors, this release is dope; if only for the Engine Earz remix who btw were the support act for some of the DJ Shadow gigs last year.  Quite frankly their remix has the right amount of DUB in their STEP, reminding me why I'm loving it as a genre when done correctly for my ears, anyways. The other standout remix comes from 'Robotaki', hence the high rating. As for the other mixes one gets the feeling, A&R man trying to tick too many boxes !
