The legendary DJ Shadow is putting together an album of archival material. Rejoice! It’s called Total Breakdown: Hidden Transmissions From the MPC Era, 1992-1996, and it’ll feature 24 tracks–27 if you buy it digitally via DJShadow.com–of previously unheard music. Much of it was created in Shadow’s early days using the Akai MPC.
Among the material will be tracks from a never-released 1994 EP that the DJ worked on with Gift of Gab. It’s all pre-Endtroducing….. stuff, and you can hear (and download!) two songs right now. Find 1996’s “Affections” and 1992’s “Dreams of a Piece” below. [TheQuietus]
