Joshua Paul Davis (born June 29, 1972), better known by his stage name DJ Shadow, is an American record producer and DJ. He first gained notice with the release of his highly acclaimed debut studio album, Endtroducing. He has a personal record collection of over 60,000 records.

Listen free to DJ Shadow – Endtroducing. Best Foot Forward, Building Steam With a Grain of Salt and more).

DJ Shadow : Endtroducin. abel: MoWax-London. DJ Shadow is neither anarchist nor hedonist. On the one hand, his approach to sampling is most certainly a liberal one, and on his magnum opus Endtroducin. there are literally hundreds of samples, looped over one another, with little random bits of sound in-between the melodic combinations. Yet unlike Girl Talk or Jason Forrest, there is no erratic barrage of breaks and minimal Top 40 rips, but rather carefully structured sonic strata, building new creations which ultimately come to be brand new songs, with their own melodies and identities, built entirely out of other songs.

DJ Shadow Armed with a sampler, a sequencer, and the black plastic he gave up trying to catalogue in 1989, 24-year-old Josh Davis of Davis, California and London, England distills everything he loves about drumbeats, symph-schlock, and oddball Americana into a 63-minute work with a beginning, a middle, and a to-be-continued

But Shadow can't avoid the irony that this is a revival of an album that revives other albums. We could be hearing this music, not for the second time around, but for the third and maybe the fourth. In the documentary Scratch, Shadow takes us to the record store where he found most of the vinyl used on Endtroducing. Upstairs we see the regular shelves and bins, but downstairs, in the basement, are tens of thousands of old albums stacked or dumped all over the room, barely lit by a few light bulbs and littered with dust and dead bats.

I have 2 identical copies of this pressing with same exact matrices except that one has glossy cover and glossy inserts. The other has matte cover and matte inserts. Anyone know the difference?

God, i was so afraid i had the B2B pressing (i can't remember if had a sticker on it or not)... especially when i had trouble playing the record on my turntable.I also got afraid when i saw the black labels... then i've learned a bit more about this 2002 reissue, and i felt relieved because i hate those scams B2B is pulling out most of the time! Now it's fixed and i can tell it sounds pretty good.

I'm wondering if some folks here haven't mixed the Black to Black pressing from 2011 with the 2002 reissue...They both bear the black labels BUT the first one is definitely a digitally sourced record when the latter is the same pressing as the original from 1996.It can clearly be checked on the matrixes AND on the labels, so it seems weird their are still some mix-ups...

Just found out that there are 2 different gatefold versions of this record. One has a gimmick cover only on a side of the gatefold. The other is a classic gatefold. Matrixes are slightly different too.

I can't tell about this one but I got nixed emotions about that back to black series. Some say it's absolute crap - avoid! Others say everything cool with no noises, no pops, crackles, etc.. From the same album! I hust think they have no or a very bad quality control. That's why I ALWAYS open every album. It's always a chance that sealed records have failures and then what? After some years you can't give it back! It's gotta be a quality check. And when I sell something it must be all right - not just write sealed and it'snot as good as opened one...Now I gotta check 3 LP's from back to black. Maybe I'm lucky..

This is a fantastic collection in beautiful packaging. This album is a true gem in every sense. HOWEVER, I just purchased this box set brand new still sealed from Amoeba in Hollywood and half of the tracks are skipping on the first play. I am hoping Amoeba will resolve this with me but clearly it isn't their fault so I feel bad even asking. Pretty gutted to spend $100+ on a sealed box set I've been looking forward to enjoying and having it this defective.

That's why I check all my LP's just to be sure that everything's good or like it should. On the other hand as soon as you open (even only to check) you can't get the price like (for a maybe wrong) sealed one. I had so many albums that were sealed and isn't really not good or sometimes disappointing. Jay-Z's Black Album not plane and full of little bubbles, even Wendy Rene(which was highly acclaimed) was a real disappointment. Not from the sound but the vinyls.. Better open it cause after awhile you can't change it no more.Peace

Still definitely happy to have this...but having listened to the digital for years, I’m still surprised...no What Does Your Soul Look Like 4? That’s my favorite track off the album ????

The whole collection is well worth it. The Reimagined vinyl is ludicrously well produced and mastered - It's also a good snapshot of just how amazing producing / mastering has become when listening to the 1996 Endtroducing, made using 12bit samplers - the Endtroducing Reimagined sounds absolutely massive, the bass is so huge.

Concur with most people here. Going off the matrix runout and the black labels, that would signify the 2002 edition.

We don't present this classic masterpiece. One of these records which needs to be listened at least once before the death."Organ Donor", "Midnight In A Perfect World", "Stem/Long Stem" : it is impossible to not feel any emotion when these tracks are played, unless having zero taste of music.Just Like "Endtroducing", I am very proud and very happy to be born in 1996 and, furthermore, to have known these kind of albums. Not many people my age can do without radio and/or TV, what a pity !Thank you Mr Davis for this sublime sample collage.

I agree with crock7. The version i have has the black labels instead of green and yellow and i bought it in the States back around 2002, most likely at a Virgin Megastore, i can't remember exactly but i've had it awhile. I came on here (discogs) to see what version i had and was confused to see that Discogs couldn't tell me when it was released based on the matrix runout on this reissue being the same as the original. I believe that the 2002 reissue has black labels, matte finish, all that stuff just like steamybrown2003 said and the photos on here show the labels from the original. Thanks for the info btw.

I have the original UK 1st pressing, and this repress, and head-to-head they sound virtually identical. A times I can't tell them apart at all. Yes, 'Transmission 2' is credited, but missing, so that's not great - and something an official release wouldn't allow. But otherwise this plays with no noise, and good fidelity throughout. The samples Shadow used are often poor quality recorded sources anyway from scratchy old 7" singles, which were then put straight to DAT after coming out of the Akai MPC60 sampler, so you can forget about the 'analogue chain' argument here - this is as good as it is gonna get.Worth the time.

I agree with what has been said by steamybrown2003 but would like to add that my heat sealed copy of the 2002 version did not have a hype-sticker. Main sleeve is matte, as previously mentioned. Black labels. Mastering is great.

A gorgeous set, packaged very nicely, pressed beautifully, and worth every penny!! No funny “remastered” business here, J.S. sticks to his guns, but the program has been changed up a bit on the original album component of this release, and appropriately so. By squeezing "Changeling/Transmission 1" onto side A, it shifts and shuffles how side B and C open and close, then goes back to the original programming in time for side D, ending each record with a "Transmission" basically. The record is also cut at a lower volume than the 96' vinyl release, but reinstates the color labels (which are not found on the 2002 repress, they came with black labels). I must say that the "Re-Imagined" material has more to do sonically with Shadow's most current release "The Mountain Will Fall" than it does with his first original masterpiece (the only real keeper being "Changeling II (Adrian Younge Remix)"). Mr. Younge seems to understand "Endtroducing.....", and in my opinion this man and his band should have been left to handle the whole remix/re-imagined project. ".....Ephemera" serves it's purpose with being exactly what it is-"Excessive.....", with the absolute must have "DJ Shadow Live In Oxford, England, Oct. 30, 1997" representing the other brilliant side of this man-“the performer".

It is very difficult to be able to tell the difference between the original 96' release and this 2002 repress when sealed. They look almost identical right down to the green hype-sticker on the cover. Aside from the runouts and labels, the inner sleeves and main sleeve are also different. The main sleeve of this 2002 repress has a semigloss/matte finish, the original 96' release comes in a high gloss picture sleeve with glossy inners. Ultimately the mastering on the 96', 2002, and the recent 20th all appear to be the same, although the original is cut a tad louder than the others...

Don't know what my fellow "discogs audiophile nerds" buddies think about this one but I'm playing the original album out of this box right now and it's a huge improvement on my 2011 repress (I did buy it on CD at release time), pretty good pressing to my ears at least !As for the bonuses I already had the "Excessive Ephemera" part of the 2005 Deluxe CD edition and listened to the remixes and of course they don't surpass the original (which you would have guess I'm a huge fan...) but they are interesting and an enjoyable listening for sure !So pretty happy with that box, yes it's no cheap but I would say it's a "Normal" price for 6 gatefold LPs in a nice sturdy box and a short but nice book these days, at least the pressing seems really good and this album well deserve that I bought it for a fourth time over the last 20 years enjoying it again and again...

The Adrian Younge remix is really nice, the rest are pretty forgettable and i dont think anyone will be talking about them in 5 years never mind 20. It does sound good and is a nice pressing but stick to the original and save your money.

I'm a massive fan of the Salva and DJ Spinn remixes as well - that footwork vibe really works nicely over the dusty hip-hop vibe of the original Endtroducing tracks.

I've just finished listening to this from start to finish for the first time in probably 10 years. Not sure why I haven't dusted it off in that time maybe because i overplayed it like hell for the first 10 years. Even though I know these tracks inside out it still made me think "this is amazing, something special is coming out of the speakers" Everything about it is pretty much perfection. The sound of a man with a sampler, an amazing record collection and a whole head full of ideas. One of the greatest Hip-Hop Albums of all time (Yeah you can keep your "trip hop" or other bullshit labels to yourself this is Hip Hop to the core ;)

I'm not much for writing reviews, and this took me a week to write and over 20 years to be able to articulate. This album is quite possibly the best album ever assembled by a DJ. All modesty aside, Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow put together samples and beats that are unparalleled by today's standards. When I think of each track, I cannot think of a better sample or sound, or piece of music, to put in place of what is there... I can't. It is almost as if by some sort of unnatural force, that he was able to find the perfect sounds and lay them down in all the right places. Over the years, without question, it has become his Citizen Kane: He has not been able to live the album down. However, I personally don't feel he should. I feel he should embrace the fact he made a masterpiece. For as to embrace it, doesn't mean you must be locked into it, but for what it is, to acknowledge what it meant for music can only help him grow as an artist. And for me, what this has meant in my life. I, for one, am eternally grateful he made this album. I have listened to at least one track from this album every day since I was 18 in 1996. Great music is timeless. And Entroducing... is just that... timeless. Thank you, Josh. And please continue to make great music.

"...DJ Shadow is the Jimi Hendrix or Jimmy Page of the Sampler"-NME I think the Phil Collins era Genesis of the sampler would have been more accurate.

Mine has black labels and etched in the runout is "697-124-123-1 A"—no "RE-1" or "RE-1 F/WRCE" anywhere. Is some of this information incorrect?

So ... like me, you fell for the / a bootleg.It is quite sure that this is your version:https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Shadow-Endtroducing/release/5102299It's a shame that those unofficial versions are sold by official stores. When ordering via internet you do not have a chance to identify those bad copies. Of course you can give them back, but that includes a new packaging, shipping and probably some trouble with the shop; i guess those guys are happy to get rid of the boots as fast as possible. And surely they do not have a "good" copy to compensate for the bootleg.The bootleg in question is very well made by the way. It has even printed inners, and the pressing itself is not as awful as expected.The whole thing looks a bit "cheapo" and the discs are quite dirty with some vinyl debris here and there.

What distinguishes this reissue from the original 1996 pressing? I understand that the original pressing was distributed by FFRR in the U.S. while the 2002 reissue was distributed in the US by A&M. That said, the photos uploaded on Discogs for both releases are identical. I've pored over them and can't find a single detail on the cover, inner sleeve or label that differs between them.From what I've read online, it seems like the reissue with the "unknown" release date (with black labels instead of green and yellow labels) is actually the 2002 reissue and the photos provided for the 2002 reissue here are actually photos of the original pressing. All I'd like to do is distinguish the 2002 from the 1996 (ideally, without having to use the original green sticker that came on the 1996 pressing).

I can't see mine anywhere on the vinyl pictures, it has black labels and was bought in UK but I can't remember when I bought it. It's definitely a repress but I don't think it's 180g (from memory, I'll dig it out when I get home to check cats).

Looks to me like someone screwed up, and possibly entered all of the 2002 reissue information into the 1996 release page—or maybe just cloned the two. My copy has black inner labels and only "697-124-123-1 A" etched in the runout. The "RE-1" does not appear anywhere in the runout.

Why is "What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 4) omitted from the LP versions?
Cherry The Countess
Cherry The Countess
Probably to fit everything on vinyl. It was also previously released on the What Does Your Soul Look Like EP and only slightly altered for the album version. You could argue the same for WDYSLL Part 1 but the album doesn't sound right if you leave that off the ending.

So much has been written about this album that it is impossible to really add anything besides my own feelings towards it, and the experiences I’ve had listening to it. Not only does it have the distinction of being the first album to be composed entirely of samples but it marks the start of my journey into a different type of music and the enjoyment purely of the sound and flow of instrumental music.The sound is so crackly and full of dreamy washed out snatches of old songs that is kindles nostalgia anyway, as well it also kindling actual nostalgia for me; of being 16 and begin to develop my identity as an individual.The mournful journeying piano line in “Building steam with a grain of salt” and the thumping, lolloping big drums. The soulful vocal in “Changeling” and lazy sax coming from way out across the bay. All of the percussion sounds across the album are so warm and lush as to envelope you. They kick hard and have that irresistible funky >crunchThe drumlines for me are often earthy brown and the organs, pianos and other sweeping swathes of sound are green, aquamarine to blue, with the orangey yellow sax above – a sunset looking out over the sea in the harbour. Attention is paid to every detail – the cymbal crash on at the end of every other fourth bar on “What does your soul look like part 4″.Most of the tracks build up slowly, into rich layers with the mood slowly being introduced and deepened. The album is languid and mournful and world weary, with an almost trance like strung out euphoria that comes at the end of long summer evening. The short snatches of shouts and vocals that come and go are like the glimpses of memories that vanish from your mind before you can place them.“One of ‘em, has eyes as big as Jolly Ranchers. Beautiful girl, she’s a beautiful girl.”Even the ferocious drums of Stem/Long stem are spread out between pieces of haunting horror music strings, before the iconic bars of organ music. The frenzied panicky monologue as the track starts to fade ends with a drumbeat on the desperate last word, “scared” and the pure chill of terror that the track has instilled is gradually eased away by sweeping waves of horns and strings.A deep primal feeling of fear is evoked in other places with the sample from the film “Prince of Darkness”, more of which is revealed each time it is played throughout the album.Some of the tracks feel like Jungle tunes in their rhythm, flow and texture: “Mutual Slump” and “Naplam Brain – Scatter Brain” for example. The drum samples have exactly the right quality; I’ve love to hear proper Jungle versions of each one.I’ve long wanted to gather all the different songs that are sampled on the album – there would no way of organising them in a coherent way – but that would be Endtroducing, broken down to its constituent parts, dismantled – with no way of putting it together again. That would be the perfect illustration of the beauty of music made from samples – how it is more than the sum of its parts, and makes it own new language out of its ingredients. It makes you realise that a million different albums could all have been made from the some parts and within each one would be the potential for all others – music becomes one.Endtroducing is one of very few, what I would call, perfect albums. A journey across time and space, into the darkness of fear and desperation and out again. The beats are so tight, and the bass so relaxed and funky, you really feel it in your chest. It’s impossible to place in time, as if 40 years of radio waves had been beamed back to Earth from outer space; an album that I will always come back to, time and time again.

One of the most important albums of the 90s and still unique. Dj Shadow gathered loads of samples to make songs out of them and he achieves an style that covers many decades and many influences at the same time. Maybe it was the equipment used, or the sources of these samples, but "Endtroducing" keeps a cohesive 70s sound (there are many pure prog-rock themes here, the ending of "Stem" being the most blatant) through what is actually a pure 90s record. It sounds really natural being so alien: there is not a sample that sounds out of place, the composition of all themes is careful... if you haven't listened to it, do it and be amazed.

Dear music connoisseurs,Could you enlighten me on who the voice at 3:16 in the track 'What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 1 - Blue Sky Revisit)' belong to ? It is sung in italian.I've already asked someone on the official DJ Shadow website. He said that the sample sources of DJ Shadow are very vast. He didn't give me the name.Would be great, thank you.

Hi Jeremia, the Italian voice in What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 1 - Blue Sky Revisit) belong to Michele Zarrillo, a not so good italian singer born in 1957. Here you can find some information: http://rateyourmusic.com/artist/michele_zarrillo. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the song.

i don't need to repeat the love heaped on this album, it's a known masterpiece. i just wanted to ask if anybody else noticed the samples from the john carpenter film "prince of darkness" and how he uses a little more of the "dream" sample each time you hear it during the transitions. it's brilliant!

My first genre was hip-hop, my second genre was electronic. Which made me the ideal candidate for this album, and boy is it good. I need not elaborate much on this album because it's already been discussed at length. It's one of those classics that people will continue to talk about twenty years from now.

Stunning, one of a kind, one of the greatest albums ever recorded.I can't find the words to fully describe how brilliant this album is.

Even though this album has been reviewed a gazillion times, I just thought about sharing my love for it. Entroducing was DJ Shadow's debut full length album released all the way back in 1996, and is probably one of the most wonderful records ever made in human history. While cats like Massive Attack created the Trip-Hop/Abstract Hip-Hop genre, DJ Shadow perfected and revolutionised it. From the moment the album begins to the moment the album ends, you get a feeling that your ears have been on a wonderful journey. Best tracks in my opinon are - Number Song, Changeling, Organ Donor (check out the Extended Overhaul Mix on Pre-emptive Strike compilation) and my all time favourite Shadow track, Midnight In A Perfect World.Beautiful Music

I have recently purchased this album and have played it endlessly. To me, this album is all about the drums. As a DJ, when choosing records, other parts such as hooks or vocals would always come first; however, in this piece everything seems to come after the drums. If you are a fan of either Hip-hop or Electronica -- or even Rock, this album could change your perspective on the potential of a drum. For mainstream music, the appearance of the artist as a DJ or it containing samples might lead some skeptics to believe that this album may have an underground aesthetic.

According to one of my best friend's wise words, "Endtroducing" was a quintessential release of 1996 - not only for the hi-level brekbeats it brought, but for the incredible melting pot of samples brilliantly used and their ensemble result - thanks to the author's very unique research that included Northern Soul, Rare Grooves & Old School Funk tunes from the sixties and seventies. The quality of the breakbeats present on this masterpiece suggests an abyssal disparity between the musical backgrounds of the contemporary and the old school artists ("Endtroducing" suggests something like the 'introduction of something from the past', already ended - like something brought from the old times, though through a nowadays bold perspective. It can be easily figured out on the comparison between the old breakbeats formed by instrumental kicks, snares and hi-hats, created by those Funk bands with the more recent drum machine sequences used since the eighties with the purpose of simulating the original ones. It's not difficult to realize the higher complexity and the artistic level of the older ones. "Endtroducing" is a sort of a testament of these ancient habilities those rare grooves & Soul-Funk bands had whose fragments were re-constructed magnificently by the multi-talented DJ Shadow. While the contemporary tecnologies seems to offer an unimaginable amount of possibilities, we realize more than ever the importance of the very essential aspect of our environment: the musical culture.

This is one of the greatest moments in the history of contemporary music. And it has little to do with the undoubtful influence of the record. Apart from that, "Endtroducing..." is simply perfect, right from the beginning to the gorgeous end. I know "Endtroducing..." almost by heart but it never fails to impress me. It all started when I heard "Midnight In A Perfect World" (probably my favourite Shadow track ever), which almost brought tears into my eyes. The whole album devastated me. Its crushy beats and grand samples still give me shivers I expect from music. It's a total masterpiece, cult classic, essential and absolutely immortal. Haven't heard it yet? I don't think so, but if yes - buy a copy immadietaly.

Midnite and Grain of Salt are my favorites, but the album is a bit unoriginal. This is a problem I have with all hip hop, but it is nice to hear something relaxing every now and then such as this. I like it overall. I think Josh Davis has a problem with moving on though. New material must be hard to come up with after his concept here.

Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the first album created completely from samples, Endtroducing to this day remains one of my all-time favorite releases, one that I'll simply never get tired of hearing. DJ Shadow's production is incredible, as is his ability to create a soundscape that reflects so many different styles of music. Hip-hop, jazz, soul, rock, and ambient electronica seamlessly blended together into a musical masterpiece... a definite must-have, for anyone.

Endtroducing wasn't the first record built out of samples. It wasn't the first instrumental hip-hop record. It wasn't the first record to gain critical success despite being primarily the work of others. DJ Shadow openly declares himself an apostle of sample culture, name-checking as many legendary hip-hop producers as you like. He makes no attempt to disguise what he's doing. Endtroducing is an album that solidifies beyond all doubt the artistic power of sampling. Using pieces of other people's music in your own compositions was not born with the sampler and neither was it with hip-hop's trick of looping the best bits of other people's music to create dancefloor explosive. However, Dad rockers everywhere will forever protest against sampling, labelled it theft. They're wrong. Endtroducing buries the argument. Music is art, and art is expression. How you get there is irrelevant provided the art is worth interpreting. If there's a theme to Endtroducing, it's one of mortality. Almost all the samples on Endtroducing are taken from forgotten horror film scores, long-dead jazz records and ancient funk. With the occasional exception, most of the sounds will be new to you. All of this is forgotten today- Shadow has borrowed from obscure sources that history will not acknowledge. But unlike so many other samplers, Shadow has respect for these tracks. Endtroducing is an album that showcases music we'd never otherwise hear, simply because it wasn't big enough at the time to impact into the history books. In thirty years time most of our favourite records of today will probably be discarded in a similar way, and all the stars and egos at the top now will have been forgotten. The contextless dialogue snippets borrowing from recorded interviews and films strengthen this theme- we witness snatches of scenes and moments and thoughts long since buried in the sands of time. Endtroducing is about respect for the people who paved the way for today's zeitgeist. But forget that- Endtroducing is exhalted so highly because it's brilliant. It sounds gorgeous- built out of the most emotive fragments of the entire career of a musician. It sounds like a post-modern film noir score: saxaphones, strings, violins, pianos, scratchy guitars meld in with staple hip-hop rhythms, Shadow's thick, enveloping basslines and the deftest of synth touches. The low-key production gives it an ageless quality, a smokey, rich texture. It's not just the sound either: we hear pieces of music from far removed sources meeting under a new context and gelling together as the players never would have imagined. It's melancholy, spooky, sad, reflective and chilled. It gently massages your mind, never conjuring overt emotions but suggesting whatever you want it to. Endtroducing is quite simply an album built out of the love of music: the love of finding and sharing gems and obscurities, the love of preserving the work of people who won't get their due acknowledgement, and the sheer love of making great music, no matter what the techniques. If you love music, then you should own it because it's one of the best records you'll ever hear.

Another ploy by our friend Josh Davis “DJ Shadow” to steal funds from seemingly unsuspecting fans, beware. Possibly the worst thirty dollars I’ve ever spent. When I heard of the re-release I was stoked the package sounded great, New Liner Notes Booklet, Alternate Takes, Demos, B-Sides but the price was a bit steep. I figured its DJ Shadow you can’t go wrong, right? Wrong. The second disc is a shoddily compiled list of tracks already released on singles Demos lasting no longer than a minute and a half and Alternate takes no different than the originals less scratching and samples. Don’t get me wrong I’d pay thirty dollars for just Endtroducing by itself its quite possible one of my favorite albums of all times but adding this second disc is just an insult to all Shadow fans and himself. In giving the booklet a once through I notice an advertisement for the new book entitled Endtroducing. The book is dedicated to the recording of Shadow’s first full length. Is that not the most pretentious thing you’ve ever heard? Makes me wonder what’s next the DJ Shadow the movie? Man I haven’t been this heated since the release of Private Press.

This album is a perfect one. Although the DJ scene already started in de mid 60's (In 1969 Franis Grasso found out a technique to mix tracks with the same bpm) Dj Shadow produced this album in 1996. Making it the very first released album which was completely build up with samples. With Endtroducing he made history, making this album a must have for all dj's and club/electronica lovers.

Some of the best hip-hop/experimental tunes from the other side of the world have been made by DJ Shadow. Cynical, dark yet captive and calm at the same time this is one of the best albums ever to be made in the US - part of its musical charm is that it is not too famous as it allows only a few dedicated music hunters to share a common interest.

Entroducing was the album that introduced me to DJ Shadow, and what a great experience. He mixes and mashes up old records he has in his collection and may I add to the highest of perfection. To me he's one of the best trip hop artists since Portishead. This album is so different to what you have heard before. Tracks like the organ grinder are quite funky, and tunes like Midnight in a perfect world soothe you after a hard day at work. Gotta admire DJ Shadow's skills.
