Lab Overview

Unreleased DJ Shadow gems unearthed! Following 2008's 4-Track Era compilation, Hidden Transmissions From The MPC Era chronicles Shadow's unheard production from '92 to '96. The time period found Josh Davis with bigger, badder beat creation tools (good bye SP-1200, hello MPC!) to develop the sound he is most known for on classic albums like Endtroducing, There is no doubt that Shadow's skill on the MPC is at grand master level, and this compilation is more proof. You can hear the way his skill has progressed from the way he chops those dusty drums for neck snapping breaks to arranging complex sampled-based arrangements like no other. Check the heavy head nod of "Intensely Hitting" and "Mellow But Chunky," the smooth and jazzy "Not-So-Quiet Storm," "Falling Up," and "Swimming Upstream" (later used on <i>Private Press</i>), the tough drum workout "Vee In Detroit" and "Total Breakdown," the psyched out "Mystical With Solo," and the swift breaks of "Quickstep," for a taste. Essential release for any Shadow fan, Recommended.
