Over the last few weeks, I’ve heard many opinions from peers about what the role of an “entertainer” should be… what sort of tone one should take on social media, what kind of outlook to project. Nonetheless, I find myself conflicted. […]

DJ Shadow Dives Into the Details of His Second Collaboration With Run the Jewels

My first collab with Run The Jewels, “Nobody Speak,” turned into a success story I don’t think any of us could have predicted. Given the song’s preeminence, we all felt compelled to work together again, but we were also aligned in not wanting to make “Nobody Speak Part Two.” We sought to do something completely different, and […]

The Story Behind The Sample that Made “Rocket Fuel”

Usually, it’s just run-of-the-mill stuff that I’m happy to take off of people’s hands; as more of a trash removal service than anything else. Last year, sometime in April, my dad left a message on my phone saying that […]

DJ Shadow’s New Single “Rocket Fuel” feat. De La Soul – Out Now

Hello! Well, it’s been awhile since my last album The Mountain Will Fall, and the corresponding tour…and since the tour ended, I’ve been mostly silent.
