Join DJ Shadow as he shows the place he found so many of the sounds that made up the album 'Endtroducing'. Shadow's approach is quite different from that of the average person who dj's today. He emphasizes the patience required to approach music this way, and also gives some very sound advice to musicians who think they're invincible. Watch closely, and if you want to see more check out Scratch by Doug Pray. It's an incredible documentary that looks at world of turntablism, and some of its innovators.

If you've missed it up until now, make sure you watch INFAMY, an incredibly well made graffiti documentary following 8 artists through their stories, their process, and their roadblocks. Some of the artists are huge favorites of ours, like Saber, Earsnot and Enem!
Seriously, everyone will love this, make sure you watch.
