DJ Shadow - Endtroducing…..
This right here, is the first record I ever bought.
I remember when I bought it spontaneously when I first moved to Brisbane. I had $50 to my name, I was still in high school and I didn’t even own a record player. I found it in JB Hi Fi on Adelaide Street for $10. It had one of those ‘I’m cheap, buy me now’ stickers on it. You can still get this record from JB Hi Fi right here, but for $34.99 instead.
When I was a little munchkin, I grew up in Cairns and all I would listen to back then was Limp Bizkit and Korn. My pot-smoking friends showed me DJ Shadow and I’ve been discovering more and more hip hop artists and beat makers ever since.
A big shout out to Josef Ressl and Pierre Araman for the good times. I must admit though, each time I listen to this record, I think of weed and pissing on chickens from a balcony. Good times right?
