MIXTAPE: Stereo:Type ‘DJ Shadow’ Re-Mixtape

Stereo Type DJ Shadow remixtape

Let London’s Stereo:Type tell you the story of this monster remixtape, featuring music from iconic DJ Shadow.

“When you’re commissioned to make a mix for DJ Shadow, you know you have to pull something special out of the bag. Making sure it was a musical experience was as much a key part of this as making it a hype mix to listen to, considering you are working with material by a guy whose process involves finding sounds which work together as though they were made for one another. When i was approached to do this, I was asked to make the mix using material either sampled by, or remixed for or by Shadow. So Instead of making it a straight up one track into another kind of mix, I tried to approach it like a live performance, deconstructing tracks into their component parts then re-assembling and combining them with my own take on it. I certainly hope people have as much of a blast listening to it as i did making it.”
