Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow, changed the game in 1996 with the release of his universally acclaimed debut album Endtroducing... Made entirely from samples, Endtroducing... was like nothing that had come before. As the New York Times stated, the critically acclaimed Endtroducing ... helped define the then cutting-edge genre of instrumental hip-hop: dance music with symphonic sweep built from scores of samples dug out of eclectic and often obscure recordings. And TIME Magazine named it as one of 100 top albums since 1954. Sixteen years on and it remains as potent and revered an album as it was on release. Shadow followed up two years later by making the lion's share of the music on the 1998 U.N.K.L.E. album, Psyence Fiction, an album with James Lavelle, featuring Thom Yorke, Ian Brown and Richard Ashcroft amongst others. By the time he released The Private Press, 2002, Davis felt he had taken emotive instrumental music created entirely from samples as far as it could go and the new record took Shadow into new territories confounding those who were waiting on Endtroducing...Part 2. The Private Press remains one of the most underrated follow-up albums. The Outsider (2006) saw DJ Shadow making a hip-hop record featuring some of leading exponents of the Bay Area s then burgeoning Hyphy scene while last year s The Less You Know, the Better, was, according to according to Stool Pigeon magazine, a testament to his enduring sampling genius .
