    The setting: Summer, 1999.

    DJ Shadow is touring clubs in Europe, hitting many countries (including Italy) for the first time. Reflecting the aesthetics of turntablism which are dominating DJ values, Shadow turns in his most scratch-heavy set to date, keeping the vibe distinctly b-boy. Blazing through such classics as “The Number Song (Cut Chemist Remix),” “Lesson 4,” and “Entropy” before settling into slower material from Endtroducing.

    According to Shadow, “This was at a time when hip-hop DJs were expected to really show off. I was massively inspired by Q-Bert’s concept of scratch languages and vocabulary, which I think you can hear during the solos over ‘Lesson 4’ and ‘I Changed My Mind.’ Listening to it now, it’s no wonder I started having wrist trouble!”

    This particular recording emanates not from a club, but rather an anarchist warehouse and pot farm, apparently out of reach from local law enforcement due to some loophole. Shadow recalls, “There were massive pot plants everywhere, and the vibe was depressingly laid back at first. When I started, there were about 30 people there. By the end, though, it was closer to about 900, and it was live.”

    Time: 72 Minutes
    Sound Quality: B, soundboard feed with some gaps while audience cheers.
