WKEND MIXTAPE: DJ Shadow – All Basses Covered


Bay Area local DJ Shadow is our highlight this week with an expansive mix of music showcasing what some have dubbed as “too future” for the club.

Shadow was playing at Mansion Nightclub in Miami when shortly after starting was asked to end his set (see video below). Much has been written on the incident, so no need rehash this here. What we gained from this is the release of a 90-minute version of his set. I think Shadow sums this up best:

“Beginning in the Summer of 2012 with his Low End Theory guest spots, DJ Shadow’s “All Basses Covered” set has morphed and evolved to incorporate as many different contemporary genres of urban and electronic music as possible. From hardcore rap to footwork and juke and beyond, Shadow has combed the web to curate seamless and dexterous blends of the most progressive sounds bubbling up from the underground. ‘Too hard?’ ‘Too future?’ Or just too raw? As always, DJ Shadow has provoked crucial flashpoints of discussion about the discipline of DJ’ing that have defined our turbulent times.”
