"Celebrate the 25th anniversary of DJ Shadow's landmark debut Endtroducing... with this exclusive half-speed mastered 7" single featuring simply one the greatest remixes of the era, Cut Chemist's remix of 'The Number Song.' Side B features a new track, exclusive to this release 'Endtroducing: Drums, Drops & Scratches,' created by DJ Shadow to celebrate the anniversary." - Mercury
25 years of Endtroducing!!! DJ Shadow celebrates his seminal debut album with this special edition 7-inch containing Cut Chemist's remix of "The Number Song," but the real prize here is the selection of drums, samples and scratches plucked from across the album that adorn the b-side. Now you too can cut up all those breaks and vocal samples that have been permanently etched in your brain for 25 years. Cop doubles! Also available (separately) is a minty-sounding new 2LP edition of the full album sporting a fresh half-speed remaster cut at Abbey Road Studios. Recommended!
