    fair enough....why? seriously.
  19. Stormshadow

    Stormshadow TRIBE Member

    Because it's cool to see how much work went into creating a sample-based album like Entroducing.
    And some people enjoy knowing the source of sampled beats.
  20. Isosceles_CAT

    Isosceles_CAT TRIBE Promoter

    I see, well if you want to hear some much more interesting sample-based work, I suggest Kid Koala, FSOL or Amon Tobin.

    I mean Shadow is cool and all, but where is all this 'hard work'? Ripping all those samples? Sequencing them into a techno album? I guess that would be time consuming... But wouldn't he be paying someone to rip a bunch of samples that he picks and chooses from anyway?

    That being said, I love hotdogs, but I would never want to know whats in them: takes away from the danger and excitement.
  21. Stormshadow

    Stormshadow TRIBE Member


    I'm not getting into this argument man...because I'd go on for hours, and I'm going to bed.
    I'm assuming that you're not a hip hop fan then?

    PS - I'm sure most of us know who Kid Koala, FSOL, and Amon Tobin are, and have heard their stuff. I'm a fan of them all...but why compare?

    PPS - Since when did Shadow start making techno? =P
  22. Isosceles_CAT

    Isosceles_CAT TRIBE Promoter

    You're right, its a pointless argument. I guess I'm just being negative because I feel that if you are going to be a sample musician then you should do something really creative to justify the fact that you are using sounds created by other people, standing on their shoulders to some extent, etc.... But to each his own. I can dig that some people just want to hear cool music.

    btw I rather enjoy some hiphop, just *not* the stuff they tend to play on muchmusic. Very intesting history, goes back hundreds of years if not more. Too bad about all the superstars who are intent on stripping it of any musical value.

    i'll guess that you haven't heard Endtroducing, have you?

    It is VERY creative. Shadow doesn't just use samples, he manipulates them, strips em down and builds them back up, creates beats and breaks out of the craziest shit. Not many people could do the things he does, it takes a very imaginative and creative mind.

    Watch the movie 'Scratch', they have a segment with Shadow which might make you appreciate him a bit more. or maybe not.

    and i've never heard him on Much Music

    Indeed, the artist I thought was DJ Shadow actually turned out to be someone else.... My mistake.
