DJ Shadow goes all in with his love for bass music and comes out on top with this one (audio)
I’m not gonna lie that I’ve been kinda lukewarm on DJ Shadow’s productions since the release of The Outsider. And while I still haven’t been completely sold on his new direction into “beat/bass/future” music, the stuff that I’ve been been hearing from the new album has been gradually growing on me; first with Swerve, then The Mountain Will Fall track, then with that super-catchy, Run The Jewels collab., and now this: Bergschund, a collaboration with a Berlin-based composer by the name of Nils Frahm. As far as the this song’s direction goes, I’m definitely into it; what with its punchy synths and drums and spacey atmosphere that slowly mutates and reveals itself over time. If this is the direction he’s taking his production in, I’m definitely interested to hear more.
