In what is now an annual tradition, we're playing catch up during this final week of the year. If this post seems outdated, that's because it is. Happy Holidays!

DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow has been in the turntabilist scene for nearly seventeen years now. He's been doing this for a long time, and only now has he finally taken that giant leap to push himself, and his audience to that visual cutting edge. The DJ, producer, and recent r&d specialist, born Josh Davis, is currently on tour putting your eyes through a visual journey with "Live From The Shadwosphere".

"I'm inside the sphere on stage, and the audience is seeing me there with the back visuals, so there's two planes. It had to swivel because I didn't want to be hidden from the crowd the whole time either; there's also an opening in the back that allows that."

Even though DJ Shadow has never took that huge leap with a technology driven centerpiece like DJ artists, Daft Punks pyramid, Etienne de Crécys cube, Deadmau5's wall housing, or David Guettas laser robots, his new approach has turned out for the best.

"We didn't want to be projecting on flat screens anymore as we had done prior. It was really about coming up with a concept, and selling it in the visuals -- now that we have about 50 shows under our belt, I'm really happy with it."-[Nerd Reactor]

And just like at Irving Plaza the night before (11/15), DJ Shadow brought the Shadowsphere and support from Pigeon John to Brooklyn Bowl on 11/16. More pictures from that appearance are below.

Since when is there a barrier at Brooklyn Bowl? I've never seen one there before.

Also, kinda lame setup considering you can't even see the person you paid to see for half the show. Looks cool though.

@8:20- uh, no! ewwww.

@8:20. Thanks. I threw up all over my mouth thinking about the smell of that one. One more reason why I don't want my camera displaying more than 10 megapixels.

They set the barrier up on occasion. For this show it was for the projection equipment. But I've also seen it set up when they are shooting video of the show as well.

@10:10 lame? you'll never see anything like it. they had cameras on the inside so you could see dj shadow, and near the end, they opened it like you see in the pictures dumbass.

@10:36 Plastikman did this already and way better i might add, back in May/June.

Shadow's show is still cool though.. just don't think it's so original or that you'll never see anything like it. LOL

How was the show?
What material did he play?

Posted by Anonymous | December 29, 2010 2:00 PM

He played a few hits and a few unknown jams too.
He played a couple tunes off of Entroducing and then he played some rare songs including,
-midnight in a perfect hummus stand.
-chickpea grinder
-this is what my platter looks like.

If the quality of the photography mirrored the quality of the performance than I'm glad I stayed home watching Fox News instead.
