Free Download: DJ Shadow Drops "Swerve"
Mon, 04 Jan 2016 13:13:33
If the holidays felt like a blur, you are not alone. Yes, the booze probably helped, but as we all emerge from our holiday hangover this week, it's obvious that the world continued to turn while we were out last minute Christmas shopping. In fact, lurking in the recesses of holiday mayhem as only someone with a name like DJ Shadow can do was a new track he dropped on Christmas day via the Tweet "DJ's, Santa's not done with you yet. He dropped off this little battle weapon for you. Enjoy, and see you in 2016!"
The track, "Swerve," is one of the latest offerings from the 43-year-old producer since the 2014 EP Liquid Amber (which shares its name with the label he launched that year, too). Shadow's endnote "see you in 2016" suggests bigger things to come, and we hear from his press statement that the DJ "has been working on his new material that's in all shapes and forms and this track is just one small piece of the larger and more diverse project that will be his LP next year."
We'll have to stay tuned for more on that, though Shadow has not been shy with his other projects over at Liquid Amber, like his collaboration with trap producer G Jones as Nite School Klick, and signing emerging artists like DJ Harrison, whose "hazy, jazz-inspired hip hop" EP Songs From The Black Water was released last month on Soundcloud and a limited run of cassettes.
