DJ Shadow has made a great living of concocting instrumentals & breaks. At the age of 19, the young San Jose producer’s beats caught the eyes of The Source magazine which eventually led to him being a featured in their “Unsigned Hype” column in 1991. 5 years later the Bay area producer went on to create his debut album “Entroducing,” in 1996. The freshman album was so well received that it landed on countless “Best Of The ‘90s” lists and polls, including Rolling Stone and NME. Since then Dj Shadow has made a 21 year career of creating singles that are merged with elements of different genres such as ambient, soul, hip hop, jazz & funk. His beats have caught the attention of a plethora of hip hop artist like E-40, Keak Da Sneak, Q-Tip, David Banner & Run The Jewels who have all made features on his albums. Last year DJ Shadow relased his 5th album & debut project on hip hop label Mass Appeal Records “The Mountain Will Fall” & it seems like he’s ready to make more noise this year.
After dropping his recent EP The Mountain Has Fallen that features hip hop artist Danny Brown & legendary MC/founder of the producer’s label home, Nas, DJ Shadow followed up by sharing a brand new video “Corridors.” According to Spin, the Mass Appeal producer put out the visuals to his collaborated track with The Mountain Has Fallen‘s final feature Oscar-winning composer Steven Price, who has worked in the music department on notable films such as “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers,” The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” & “Batman Begins.” The “Corridors” video was directed by Dan Emmerson, & mainly consist of abstract shots of of swimmers and remote-controlled cars.
