Hey DJ

Hip hop's founding father DJ Shadow is coming to Manchester for two very special gigs this weekend and here's a chance to see him for free.

Published on December 6th 2006.

Hey DJ

He is the undisputed king of hip hop and widely regarded as one of the most ground-breaking and influential artists in modern music. DJ Shadow has been working out of San Francisco since the early 1990s and has evolution as a soloist is as well-recognised as his extensive collaborative efforts which range from the close-to-home Cut Chemist to a chilling duet with Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

Shadow has also been widely recognised for his work in the abstract and psychedelic group U.N.K.L.E, whose debut album Psyence Fiction caused an international stir, and not just among polite members of the Spelling Society.

Described as the Jimi Hendrix of sampling and a true pioneer in modern hip-hop and dance music, Shadow is in town with special guests this Saturday and Sunday, December 9th and 10th, at Manchester Academy, where he’ll be appearing as part of a UK tour to promote his new album, The Outsider, which features collaborations with Q-Tip, Keak Da Sneak, Turf Talk, Kasabian, Chris James from Stateless, and David Banner. '

“There are songs with samples and songs with no samples,” The Shad says enigmatically. “There's very dark stuff and very light stuff. Fast and slow. Simple and complicated.”
