DJ Shadow‘s influential debut gets the remix treatment.

DJ Shadow’s seminal debut album, Endtroducing…, was released 20 years ago, back in 1996, and Shadow (real name Josh Davis) is set to celebrate its lasting importance with a suite of remixes.

Davis revealed the plan during the latest episode of the Talkhouse Music Podcast, where he talked one-on-one with Clams Casino. “This year is the 20th anniversary of Entroducing…, so curating this remix album, I wanted to provide another layer of perspective on the record and invite my current favorites and a few favorites from other eras to do remixes,” he explained.

So far we only know two of the artists involved – Hudson Mohawke teased his remix of ‘Midnight In A Perfect World’ earlier this year and Davis talked specifically about Clams Casino’s rework, without letting listeners know what track he was taking on.

“I listened to it and I loved it, but in the back of my mind I got really worried because I was thinking, ‘shit did he send a demo of, like, somebody else’s track? I hope this is mine!” he said. “Cause I couldn’t recognize any of the elements in mine, even though there were so many things about it that seemed familiar.”

The release date and tracklist of the remix album has not yet been confirmed, but watch this space for updates. [via Pitchfork]
