Considered the “DJ Shadow of Wales,” Culprit One has put together an expansive minimix chronicling the career path of one of dance music’s defining contributors. DJ Shadow’s contribution to the world of experimental hip hop and electronic music has paved the way for acts like Pretty Lights, Griz and more, all of whom mirror his heavily sample-based approach to music production. Working to meld rare pieces of music and sound bytes together into completely new productions, DJ Shadow spawned an entirely new genre within electronic music, pioneering what is now considered the “trip hop” sound. Cuplrit One’s mix is an effortlessly blended tribute that defines the unique DJ Shadow sound.
