Reviews

Review extract for 15 November show in Cardiff.[4]

DJ SHADOW fills the intermission with his fearless brand of avant hop. Well, he plays his own records and occasionally deigns to scratch up a couple of Seventies soul-sides with his spare wrist — unforgiveably lazy really.

He leaves the decks after 'Midnight', and the kind of applause ripple that's so weedy you wince. A 10-minute pause.

A couple of dub plates. Lights out. A held breath. Then all hell breaks loose.
