Last year DJ Shadow released All Bases Covered, and this summer the man known to his mom as Josh Davis will be touring to support the album. The tour will hit everywhere from Red Rocks to the Shoreline Amphitheatre, and many points in between. To promote the album, the famed San Francisco producer hit up DJ/producer Stero:Type to mix him up a 30-minute set of Shadow tracks, re-interpreted. As Stero:Type explains, it’s all “material either sampled by, or remixed for or by Shadow.” Per Stereo:Type:

“When you’re commissioned to make a mix for DJ Shadow, you know you have to pull something special out of the bag. Making sure it was a musical experience was as much a key part of this as making it a hype mix to listen to, considering you are working with material by a guy whose process involves finding sounds which work together as though they were made for one another. When i was approached to do this, I was asked to make the mix using material either sampled by, or remixed for or by Shadow. So Instead of making it a straight up one track into another kind of mix, I tried to approach it like a live performance, deconstructing tracks into their component parts then re-assembling and combining them with my own take on it. I certainly hope people have as much of a blast listening to it as i did making it.”
