It’s pretty back-to-front, playing live an album that was created from samples. But somehow Introducing did it – and they did it well – with one of the defining albums of the 1990’s. DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing was a true labour of love, crafted from hand picked samples that he created, one by one. Nowadays it doesn’t sound that impressive, but when you think of the technology we’ve got that Shadow didn’t, it becomes a much, much bigger achievement.
Enough about DJ Shadow though. Introducing, the live 10-piece band, have turned their sights on Mr Scruff. It’s not particularly new news this, seeing as they announced it over summer and have already toured. The news is that they’ve got another spate of live shows coming up, most notably (for me, anyway) at the Jazz Café, at the end of March.
This is the kind of thing you can expect to see. I, for one, cannot wait. My tickets are ordered and hopefully on their way soon. Listen to the original and see if you can imagine yourself not being at the Jazz Café on 31st March seeing his songs being played live…
