(8/17/14) Monty's Catch of the Day - DJ Shadow

Today's catch comes from the legendary DJ Shadow...a pioneer of the trip-hop movement. It's called "Ghost Town", and is on the 3-track EP called The Liquid Amber EP. This is his first record after starting up his own label also called Liquid Amber. Shadow (aka Josh Davis) has this to say about his recent release...

"I'm pleased to announce THE LIQUID AMBER EP. This single/EP serves as the opening salvo in what I hope is a long string of music, by myself and others, on my new imprint: LIQUID AMBER. There's two new songs, "Ghost Town" and "Mob," and a nifty remix of "Six Days" by Machinedrum.

"Ghost Town" is an ambitious ride through many of the micro-genres within the Future Bass umbrella that have inspired me recently, while "Mob" is an intentionally stripped-down, Cali-certified head-nodder. Both songs were written, programmed, and mixed by myself, and they represent the forward steps I feel I've taken as an engineer. The "Six Days" remix was something I asked Machinedrum to knock out as a tour weapon, and he crushed it (naturally), so I felt it deserved a proper release."

You can listen to today's catch, "Ghost Town" from DJ Shadow in the Soundcloud player below. Good things!
