About this album

Endtroducing… is the debut studio album by American hip hop artist DJ Shadow. It was released on November 19, 1996 by Mo’ Wax Records. The album was conceived as an effort by Shadow to make an album completely based around sampling. It is structured almost entirely out of sampled elements from genres ranging from hip hop, jazz, funk, psychedelia, as well as samples from films and interviews. All sampling on the album was done on an Akai MPC60 MKII sampler. DJ Shadow released Endtroducing… when he was 24 years old. Frequenting record stores to find music, he would often bring a small Fisher Price battery operated record player to listen to the records in the store. Obscure albums are of interest, while DJ Shadow tries to avoid obvious material in his recordings. Endtroducing… is structured completely out of sampled elements, including hip hop, jazz, funk, psychedelia, old television shows, interviews and percussion tracks. The entirety of the album was composed on an MPC60 MKII sampler.

    TGKN: you might try artists like Kylie Minogue or Moby instead if that's your thing

    For my own personal benefit, can anyone tell me what tracks from this album have actual vocals? I love Six Days (ft. Mos Def) and Mashin' on the Motorways but I hate pure instrumentals.

    there are at least 3 of the same album with different tags, (Endtroducing, Endtroducing..., Endtroducing......), and none of the track listings match the one I have ):

    it'd be nice if one of the best and most influential elpees of the past fifteen years had a proper track listing and was properly streamable. sigh.
