Les légendes ne meurent jamais dit le dicton, et DJ Shadow le confirme avec brio. Figure de proue de l’abstract hip-hop, l’auteur du classique Endtroducing, qui célèbre ses 25 ans de carrière annonçait la sortie de son cinquième album The Mountain Will Fall pour juin 2016. On en connait déjà le très percutant « Swerve » dévoilé en décembre dernier, ainsi que le titre éponyme de l’album révélé simultanément chez Zane Lowe et sur le site de Pitchfork début Avril: le grand retour de DJ Shadow fait l’évènement.
The Mountain Will Fall contient 12 titres et des collaborations avec Run The Jewels, Nils Frahm, Matthew Halsall, Ernie Fresh…

DJ Shadow, widely acknowledged as a crucial figure in the development of experimental, instrumental hip-hop, will return with ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ June 24 2016 on Mass Appeal Records, his first full length release since 2011.  The 12-track album finds DJ Shadow exploring new realms in addition to the deep samples and kinetic soundscapes that helped to launch his career 25 years ago.  On ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ he’s shifted further toward original composition, a vast experimentation of beats and textures, synthesizers and live instruments including horns and woodwinds.  The album features Run The Jewels, Nils Frahm, Matthew Halsall, Ernie Fresh and more.

The seeds for the ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ were planted after two years of touring and DJ Shadow’s last full length and retrospective box set releases. While taking some time to recalibrate, he was invited by the Low End Theory to do a DJ set, something he hadn’t done in over a decade. It led to festival DJ sets, performing with Diplo, listening deeply to several subgenres of electronic music, doing remixes and the exploration of Ableton Live software – a new way for this profoundly original voice to compose and create. DJ Shadow also launched his own label for the release of his work and other artists, called Liquid Amber.
