DJ Shadow Should Koko!
And he did, last night in fact
A full Koko was last night (Tuesday) treated to DJ Shadow performing his all-new full set for the first and last time in the UK this year, well until his winter tour later this year anyway.
And what a treat it was as the evening began with Leeds new boys, Stateless, on warm-up duty. Led by frontman and DJ Shadow collaborator Chris James, their mix of beats, guitars, samples and Jame's soaring vocals warmed the London crowd nicely.
Next up was the main man himself, DJ Shadow. Cutting up classic tracks from Endtroducing, Private Press, new album Outsider, plus UNKLE collaborations, the crowd was left bouncing to every beat from start to finish. Joined on stage by Stateless James, Lateef The Truth Speaker and a video version of David Banner, DJ Shadow gave the audience a taste of his new material while keeping the party going strong all night long.
Heres to the new album big man!
