More than 30 years ago Josh Davis discovered music. Little did the world know that this north Cal kid would eventually become one of the most influential names in hip hop around the world. In his college years he started playing his tracks on the radio and collaborating with local rappers, eventually becoming DJ Shadow.
He was quickly featured in the Source magazine's Unsigned Hype column in 1991 and from there it was all uphill. In 1993, Shadow recorded Entroducing his first full-length LP, a project that became one of the most important hip hop works of the decade. Both Rolling Stone and NME included it in their 'best of the '90s' lists.
He's since released four acclaimed full-length projects and performed at venues and festivals in far reaches of the globe. It's as a hip hop pioneer and all time great that DJ Shadow comes to New Zealand for two shows. The tour comes in support of his fifth album This Mountain Will Fall.
