Here’s the “Controversial” Set That Got DJ Shadow Booted From a Miami Nightclub

Last month, instrumental hip-hop godhead DJ Shadow was asked by the staff at Miami’s Mansion nightclub to cut his set short, apparently because whatever he was playing was too weird for the crowd. Later, Shadow promised to upload the offending set to SoundCloud so we could hear exactly what had those promoters so worked up. Today, he did just that, and the 86-minutes of music sounds just like you’d expect a circa 2012 Shadow set to sound: plenty of club-friendly bass, skittering drums, and ominous, minor-key twinkling. It’s not bad! Listen below:

And here’s the video of Shadow getting booted from the decks in December:
