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.

Josh "Shadow" Davis had already been fiddling around with making beats and breaks on a four-track recorder while he was in high school in the NorCal cow-town of Davis, but it was during college that he co-founded his own Solesides label as an outlet for his original tracks. Hooking up with Davis' few b-boys (including eventual Solesides artists Blackalicious and Lyrics Born) through the college radio station, Shadow began releasing the Hip-Hop Reconstruction mix tapes in 1991 and pressed his 17-minute beat-head symphony "Entropy" in 1993. His tracks spread widely through the DJ-strong hip-hop underground, eventually catching the attention of Mo' Wax.

Relish this moment. Relish the fact that right now you, dear listener, are on the cutting edge, that you're hip to KDSML, that you know the sounds of the future when you hear it. Because you're about to have a hell of a lot more company. KDSML is the avant-garde of the new guard, a bleeding edge DJ with the skills and experience to blow speakers and blow minds where ever he goes. Born in the U.K. But hailing from Nashville KDSML merges the British Isles love for electronic progressivism with the South's love for the big, big bass tying them together with a turntablist's fleet fingers and an ear-to-ear grin that's as contagious as it is honest.

 

With ove fifteen years behind the tables and a family steeped in DJ culture like few others – his father wrote Babe Ruth's “The Mexican” one of the most important breaks in hip hop history, while his brother is one of Music City's most innovative producers of hip hop and electronic music – KDSML approach to production and performance is as natural as it gets. His cuts and scratches are technical but seemless often invisible in the scope of the greater mix, his track selections bold exciting find the precious middle ground between atmosphere and melody, song-structure and sound design. It's a balance and precision that's missing from an electronic music scene that's forsaken it's underground roots in favor of elaborate stage production and pop-remixes.

 

KDSML's evolution is constant, spurred on by a live performance schedule that has seen him criss crossing country swapping ideas and energy with an international cadre of established acts and up-and-comer.  From the epic Nocturnal Festival to the wilds of Camp Bisco to the chaos of Mindelexir's Bass Church monthly, KDSML has been staging a quiet campaign to takeover contemporary electronic music one show at a time. From his first full-length album Secret Recipe to his Trapjaw series of mixtapes, KDSML has explored the depths of hip hop and electronic music's overlapping aesthetics – it's the bass, duh – gliding between the two and pushing the envelope of what dance music can and should be.
