DJ SHADOW - ALL BASES COVERED MIX



DJ Shadow had his set cut short after a promoter deemed his material inappropriate for the crowd. "They said this shit is too future for y'all," Shadow said at the time. (The club has since apologized.)

But as Consequence of Sound notes, this weekend DJ Shadow's camp posted the set in question-- titled "All Basses Covered (The Infamous South Beach Set, December 2012)"-- to SoundCloud; stream it above.

The following statement accompanies the mix:

DJ Shadow’s "All Basses Covered" set has morphed and evolved to incorporate as many different contemporary genres of urban and electronic music as possible. From hardcore rap to footwork and juke and beyond, Shadow has combed the web to curate seamless and dexterous blends of the most progressive sounds bubbling up from the underground. ‘Too hard?’ ‘Too future?’ Or just too raw? As always, DJ Shadow has provoked crucial flashpoints of discussion about the discipline of DJ’ing that have defined our turbulent times.

LEGO LETTER RACER: THE SIGMA (TRIBUTE TO RAMMELLZEE)

2 years ago today (28th June) is the day that THE EQUATION: RAMMELLZEE passed.

By way of tribute, I have completed the LEGO LETTER RACER ..."SIGMA". In the ALPHA'S BET, as I am D-ONE and KOOL KOOR is B-ONE, RAMM is Σ-ONE...THE SIGMA. Without going into the etymology, there is significant reasons for SIGMA replacing the "E"..but I will leave it up to you to decipher...for more read GOTHIC FUTURISM.

Stay tuned for three dimensional motion animation, full mechanical & engine detailing on the LEGO SIGMA sculpture shortly...this one moves!
