20th Anniversary 6LP Deluxe Edition Box Set!
A Landmark In Instrumental Hip Hop!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 329/500!

Endtroducing is 20 years old and to celebrate this milestone DJ Shadow has re-opened the sessions to personally curate a bonus album of remixes by a carefully selected roll call of electronic music luminaries, which he has christened Endtroducing Re-Emagined. This will be added to the successful 2005 2CD Deluxe Edition, along with expanded notes from a new interview conducted by Eliot Wilder and never-before-published photographs to create the 20th anniversary release as Deluxe 6LP.

"As a music lover, my favorite records always have some hallmarks of an era, but also sound as if they could have been made almost any time within a 20 year time span. I've always felt that as someone who buys a lot of records and sits there and studies them and kind of vibes off them, I also feel like once you put something out into the world, it can be discovered later. That happened so much with Endtroducing – 10 or 15 years down the road, people were discovering it." - DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop's early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks. Endtroducing..... is Shadow's debut studio album, released on September 16, 1996 by Mo' Wax. It is composed almost entirely of sampled content, most of which originated from vinyl records. It features moody, slow tracks and upbeat jams reminiscent of Shadow's early hip hop influences. Endtroducing ranked highly on various lists of the best albums of 1996, and has since appeared in several publications' lists of the decade's greatest albums. The album is considered a landmark work in instrumental hip hop, with DJ Shadow's innovative sampling techniques and arrangements influencing other producers to create similar sample-based works.

"As a suburban California kid, DJ Shadow tended to treat hip-hop as a musical innovation, not as an explicit social protest, which goes a long way toward explaining why his debut album, Endtroducing....., sounded like nothing else at the time of its release. Using hip-hop, not only its rhythms but its cut-and-paste techniques, as a foundation, Shadow created a deep, endlessly intriguing world on Endtroducing....., one where there are no musical genres, only shifting sonic textures and styles. Shadow created the entire album from samples, almost all pulled from obscure, forgotten vinyl, and the effect is that of a hazy, half-familiar dream -- parts of the record sound familiar, yet it's clear that it only suggests music you've heard before, and that the multi-layered samples and genres create something new. And that's one of the keys to the success of Endtroducing.....: it's innovative, but it builds on a solid historical foundation, giving it a rich, multifaceted sound. It's not only a major breakthrough for hip-hop and electronica, but for pop music." - AllMusic
