Chilling out


The father of Trip Hop creates a genre defining album. Layers of atmospheric loops with an ability to draw you into a world he has created. This album was a key influence on many bands that were to come in the instrumental hip hop/ trip hop world. This album is easily the best body of work from DJ Shadow. Combined with his talent to create soundscapes this album was a true pioneer of samples and easy listening hip hop. The album easily conjures mental images of DJ shadow rumaging through piles of old records searching for unique loops and samples. Besides the influence it had on trip hop to come it also is a fantastic album in its own right with tight beat management with a sprinkling of loops and a myriad of vocal tracks that creates a concise and tight album.
