BASS: DJ Shadow ‘Reconstructed’ marks 20 year career

San Franciso Bay Area native DJ Shadow (pictured below), regarded as one of the most influential and consistently innovative artists to emerge in electronic and hip hop music in the last 20 years, has released his latest album, "Reconstructed: The Best of DJ Shadow," through record label Universal Music Enterprises.

Reconstructed pulls from Shadow's two decades producing and playing music, from his early days before signing with label Mo Wax to his most recent album, “The Less You Know, The Better.” It also has two new tracks, including “Listen,” featuring vocalist Terry Reid.

DJ ShadowDJ Shadow, whose birthname is Josh Davis, developed a cult following early in his career with his debut album “Endtroducing.” The 1996 release is considered an all-time classic among downtempo, hip hop, and electronic music fans. Other key releases were “The Private Press” (2002) and “The Outsider” (2006), among others.

To coincide with the release of Reconstructed, DJ Shadow has put together a boxed set archive that’s likely to become a rare collector’s item. It includes seven of his CDs, a DVD and a vinyl record, and exclusive photos. The boxed set release is limited to 500 copies that are individually numbered and signed by DJ Shadow with a certificate of authenticity.

The limited edition boxed set is available only at the DJ Shadow website. The regular version of Reconstructed is available now at Amazon in CD or mp3 format, iTunes, and record shops around the world.
