All Basses Covered (The Infamous South Beach Set, December 2012)

DJ Shadow - All Basses Covered (The Infamous South Beach Set, December 2012)

A few weeks before the New Year rang in, turntable/production pioneer DJ Shadow was cut short while behind the decks at Miami’s Mansion nightclub for being, as Shadow put it, “too future.” Now, the veteran jock has made the infringing set available for all to hear. As it turns out, what was “too future” for Mansion is in fact a genre-hopping mix of modern hip-hop, trap, Miami bass, and even a bit of footwork, all pieced together with Shadow’s signature—and ceaselessly impressive—turntable skills. 

All drama aside, this set is overwhelming, in all the right ways.
