Moving Shadows.

You might remember a few months ago a new DJ Shadow track called 3 Freaks dropped. I'm a massive old school Shadow fan, so naturally I was a bit worried about the change in direction. Interviews with him at the time seemed to comment on how there are no samples on the new album, and how it follows a more modern R&B blueprint. "Shit, that means crunk" was my initial reaction, and while 3 Freaks is quite, err, crunky, the latest tidbit from the album is a good distance away from that formula. Enuff is a storming party track featuring Q-Tip and Lateef, which doesn't drift back into familiar territory yet builds on Shadows new sampleless production without going into scary pop. Could it be he's looking to move into the Pharrell shaped production hole in hip-hop? Not sure, but this sounds like he could make the transition. I like it, a lot.
