The drama surrounding the infamous set that got DJ Shadow kicked off the decks at Mansion Miami back in December stirred a lot of talk among the DJ realm. The set has finally been released and for those who weren't there to witness him spin live and for those that have been wondering what the dubbed "too futuristic" set was like, can now listen to the sounds and judge for themselves.
The set combines a mix of genres from electronic to urban to trap sounds which superbly showcases Shadow's versatile skills as a turntablist. Listen to the set below for a mesh of damn good sounds!
Remember the drama that went down at Mansion Nightclub in Miami when DJ Shadow was kicked off the decks for not "catering to the crowd" and playing beats that "were too hard?" Well, rest assure because Beatport just announced they will be hosting the infamous set on December 30.
Shadow made a stop in Miami as part of his 'All Basses Covered Tour,' tweeted to his fans after the incident, "I don’t care if I get kicked out of every rich kid club on the planet...I will never sacrifice my integrity as a DJ…ever."
Tune into Beatport this Sunday, December 30 for the full mix!

You didn’t think electronic music was going anywhere, did you?
Sounds of dub step and electro beats can be heard playing in the background of everywhere from shopping malls to restaurants these days; and that’s not even including your weekly house music hot spot. Festivals such as Coachella, Bonaroo, Electric Zoo, and Ultra have been getting rave reviews from electronic music enthusiasts, gathering tens of thousands of people every year. Although an amazing experience, these festivals tend to last for days, draining both mind and wallet. Taking that into consideration, the people over at Skullcandy are treating EDM fans to a one day festival to keep the music flowing beyond their stylish headphone gear.
This might sound strange but some of us don't like Halloween. Some of us don't like dressing in vampire and say goodbye to their favorite candies. Yes they are people who would do anything to avoid the pagan party.
Well lucky them, there is a great alternative in Vegas. The oustanding Dj Shadow will perform in The House of Blues. This musician is one of the finest abstract hip-hop dj. He is responsible of musical monuments such as
Entroducing...., or The Private Press. You probably have heard him in of his famous show that mixes several different genres. We are talking about on of the greatest sampler in the world (Shadow's got a hudge record collection at home).
So hurry up and enjoy Dj Shadow's universe at the House of Blues on October 30.
