Am I the only one who doesn't think it's unreasonable to want another Endtroducing? The Avalanches came back with a GREAT new album in the style of their last one this year, I think he could at least try. Not that his other work isn't good, I love The Private Press. Have yet to listen to The Mountain Will Fall, though.
I also do t think it's fair to expect someone who's trying to push personal boundaries like DJ Shadow to do something retrogressive. It would be like asking Aphex Twin to make Selected Ambient Works Vol 1 again, the era is gone, and the artists are trying new things.
Trying bland new things that are more about technical noodling and production chops show offs, than making the emotional epic music that got them noticed in the first place. Shadow and Aphex are the same in that regard.
Midnight In A Perfect World isn't the only DJ Shadow track to make my top 100 songs of all-time. One more is coming up closer to the top. http://dozensofdonuts.blogspot.com/2016/02/top-100-songs-of-all-time-40-31.html
Впервые услышала его трек в саундтреке к "Форсажу", сразу заинтересовал. В Endtroducing просто прекрасное сочетание трип-хопа и электроники, в общем, самый лучший альбом в дискографии DJ Shadow. А дальше пресновато как-то. Особенно альбом 2006 года.
Have featured the Twin Peaks-sampling 'What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 1 - Blue Sky Revisit)' in my [url=https://www.mixcloud.com/james-usill/cut-through-2-lets-rock-music-touched-by-the-world-of-david-lynch/] playlist of Lynchian music. [/url]
inspired by Walkie Talkie, I wrote about how important Shadow and "sampledelia" was to my growing tastes https://optimisticunderground.wordpress.com/2015/05/03/dj-shadow-and-the-avalanches-or-thoughts-on-hip-hop-and-musical-growth/
