DJ Shadow Launches Liquid Amber

New songs streaming on SoundCloud



    San Jose born and Davis educated DJ Shadow (aka Josh Davis) has announced the launch of a new digital and physical record label called Liquid Amber.

    The first release is a digital EP with three new Shadow songs, but he plans to release other artists in the future. In the producer's own words: "'Ghost Town' is an ambitious ride through many of the micro-genres within the Future Bass umbrella that have inspired me recently, while 'Mob' is an intentionally stripped-down, Cali-certified head-nodder. Both songs were written, programmed, and mixed by myself, and they represent the forward steps I feel I've taken as an engineer. The 'Six Days' remix was something I asked Machinedrum to knock out as a tour weapon, and he crushed it (naturally), so I felt it deserved a proper release."

    Shadow and Cut Chemist will stop at Mezzanine in San Francisco on October 4 for their Renegades of Rhythm Tour. The frequent collaborators will spin records that belonged to hip-hop godfather Afrika Bambaataa at this special engagement, so it'll be a trip through hip-hop history as refracted through the lenses of two insightful and incredibly creative DJs.
