This year marks 20 years since the pivotal DJ Shadow debut album Endtroducing. To mark the occasion the San Francisco-based producer has announced a special deluxe CD/LP 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition featuring the original album, a collection of demos, alternate takes and live versions titled ‘Excessive Ephemera’ and 12 specially commissioned remixes from some of contemporary electronic music’s leading lights including Hudson Mohawke, Clams Casino, Salva, Prince Paul, Bondax & Karma Kid and more.
A seminal and influential hip hop release, Endtroducing is widely regarded as one of the defining albums of the 90s and was the first record to be made entirely from samples of other people's records.
The package includes expanded liner notes from a new interview conducted by Eliot Wilder (author of the lauded 33 1/3 book on the album) and some never-before-published photographs by B+ and Phil Knott. The new remixes have also been issued as a standalone digital album.
