Product description

Product Description

Reconstructed is DJ Shadow's first Best Of collection. It spans the musician's 23-year career, featuring tracks from his five studio albums as well as collaborations with the likes of James Lavelle, Richard Ashcroft and Thom Yorke. This 2CD deluxe edition features tracks recorded with The Heliocentrics and Divine Styler, as well as two previously unreleased songs.

BBC Review

Speaking to BBC Music in October 2011, Josh Davis aka DJ Shadow remarked: “I struggle to understand some people's context when it comes to covering my music.” He’s seen responses to 2006’s The Outsider and 2011’s The Less You Know, the Better vary from faint praise to far worse. “The work of a man struggling to recall his motivations for making music,” said NME of The Less…, awarding it 5/10.

The problematic context: Shadow’s pioneering Endtroducing… LP of 1996, the first album to be comprised entirely of samples (says Guinness World Records, anyway). Its success lay not in its constituents, but in how they were assembled – into a beautiful whole that, to many a listener, Shadow’s yet to better. It’s a regular on ‘albums to hear before you die’-style lists.

This double-disc best-of features plenty of material from the Endtroducing… era – and before it, too, with the inclusion of Lost and Found (S.F.L.), a cut from 1994 which didn’t feature beside the similar-of-vintage In/Flux on 1998’s Preemptive Strike. What did was Hindsight – then in its 12-minute guise, the track returns at half that length. These early creations showcase Shadow’s preference for prominent drums and smoky atmospherics, luxuriously languid grooves meandering through the mix.

The usual suspects from Endtroducing… are present: Midnight in a Perfect World opens disc one with measured drama; Building Steam With a Grain of Salt retains a spookiness between its scratches; and Organ Donor appears in its (High Noon EP-featured) “extended overhaul”. Blood on the Motorway, from 2002’s The Private Press, is a disc one highlight immediately followed by something of an understated gem from 2006, the Chris James-featuring You Made It.

Divine Intervention isn’t from a Shadow album at all – it appeared on the 1999 label compilation Quannum Spectrum – and two prominent tracks from the first UNKLE album are here, too: Rabbit In Your Headlights with Thom Yorke and the Richard Ashcroft-starring Lonely Soul. The previously unreleased Listen features renowned rock sideman Terry Reid, whose growly vocal dominates the piece. But the vocalists never fully overshadow the producer, no pun intended.

Reconstructed casts its net widely across Shadow’s career-to-date, and pulls in a few cuts perhaps worth throwing back. But on the whole this is a (mostly) marvellous snapshot of a supreme talent deserving of more respect than he’s been afforded in recent years.
