DJ Shadow: Endtroducing... (Mo'Wax)

Push, Muzik, October 1996

STUTTERED BEATS, fluttered beats. Scratching harder and faster than the caretaker's cat at the local fleapit. Pianos which tease and prick, b-lines which cajole and haul. Feedback and dub. An angel with broken wings sobbing pitifully in the distance. A saxophone tuned by the Devil himself. Superfly speak and loony luna talk. Backwards stuff, sideways stuff, inside out and halfway up the third flagpole from the left stuff.

Total word count of piece: 610
