Product Details

Summary

"Total Breakdown: Hidden Transmissions From The MPC Era, 1992-1996" is a major new archival release exposing Shadow's early production on the Akai MPC. Included among the highlights are instrumental tracks from an aborted 1994 EP planned with The Gift Of Gab, which includes the original demo of what would eventually become "Six Days."

The new collection of "MPC Era" tracks follows on from the much-loved "4-Track Era" releases from 2008 and 2009, and establishes a pattern which should be familiar to Shadow fans.

"I like to follow up new material (such as the recent 'The Less You Know, The Better' LP) with a tastefully-done archival project," Shadow explains. "As long as the old stuff is given a context and doesn't overshadow the new, I think it's a healthy exercise for me, and one that re-calibrates me for whatever new musical path lies ahead. I think it's important to revisit where you've been occasionally so that you can determine where to go."

This project has been in the works for a LONG TIME, and it's as good as it sounds.

Comment: I wonder if back in 92 when Shadow was djing for KDVS Davis nor cal where some of these tracks debuted then while he was there or after? I dont know, just some food for thought. I think it was 90.3 on the radio, and where im from good ol 408 you cant catch it. Would have been epic to listen then if you lived in the Sacramento area. Asia Born, Lateef and Gift of Gab also started at KDVS.

Comment: I listened to this once online and ordered it. This is pretty solid considering how poopy The Outsider was - on which I enjoyed perhaps 5 tracks and hated all the rest> That said, Hidden Transmissions has a good ol' Dj Shadow feel which shouldn't disappoint fans who enjoy his more soulful, mellow, chillaxing stuff from the early 1990s

Comment: Last album sucked horribly. there was MAYBE 1 good song. I guess as long as this is from his MPC era it should not disappoint. Whatever era he is in nowadays is a sad-diarrhea-leaking-shit-stain era.
