Run The Jewels DJ Trackstar serves up a delightful little sampler for those still wondering about DJ Shadow’s newest album! (audio)
Since the reviews have come in (and they’re pretty much in the range that I expected), I’ve been a bit on the fence about buying DJ Shadow’s latest album. Stuff that I’ve heard I unquestionably liked, but nothing about it screamed paying 40 bucks for the vinyl (really should switch over to digital). However, I gotta say, this new Trackstar The DJ megamix, which pulls largely from Shadow’s latest album (with a few samples from other albums, interviews, etc.), have me reconsidering. It could be Trackstar’s excellent mixing and sequencing doing the trick, but this really does sound like the ultimate preview/sampler for the album. If you’re still wondering whether or not to pick up this album, you might want to give this a listen to help inform your opinion.
DJ Shadow’s latest album, “The Mountain Will Fall” is out on Mass Appeal Records, on all formats!
