The Way Of White Folks : DJ Shadow letter to the Source (1991) + new interview

Yeah, I had a hard time finding the MD with the interview, but it was even more difficult to find another mention of DJ Shadow in The Source, besides this letter he wrote to magazine as a young fan in may 1991. I think Elliott Wilson may have mentioned him or Latyrx in his Independents’ Day column years later though.

So here is the audio of the interview I did with him where he talked about the Unsigned Hype demo, Dave Funkenklein, Paris among other things. The only problem is that the interview was not made for radio or broadcast so the sound is not so good, the main problem is that you don’t really hear my questions, sorry.

DJ Shadow interview Part 1 : on his first time spinning on the radio, Dave Funkenklein, the demo, what gear he was using and meeting Paris

DJ Shadow interview Part 2 :  on his little dude days as a digger, meeting James Lavelle, how much of a failure his career was in the US and why he didn’t produce many rappers besides his own crew

DJ Shadow interview Part 3 : On why he changed his sound, his relationship with the press, why he lets the major choosing the singles and why Keak The Sneak and Turf Talk are the best new artists out right now

DJ Shadow interview Part 4 : on how his under-the-radar projects since Private Press should have let us know he was changing, how he still like playing his old stuff, “Broken Levee Blues”, “This Time” and why he has so many songs with vocals on “The Outsider”
