UPDATE: DJ Shadow just dropped the second single from his next album The Mountain Will Fall. “Nobody Speaks,” featuring rap’s favorite tag team Run The Jewels, is a fierce bar fest with some bluesy bass and crashing drums. Feast your ears on this one:
One of Hip-Hop’s most revered instrumentalists DJ Shadow will be releasing his first album in five years, The Mountain Will Fall, via Mass Appeal Records on June 24th. His last full length project was 2011’s The Less You Know, the better. His debut project Endtroducing, which turns 20 in November, is a master class of sampling and drum machine manipulation but the new project finds the San Jose California-based artist mixing more original compositions into the 15-track playlist.
“Sometimes records are a struggle,” he told Pitchfork.com. “This record I knew exactly what I wanted to get across.”
