It's been 18 days since DJ Shadow got kicked off the decks at Mansion Miami for playing "too future for all of y'all." And it's been a week and a half since the South Beach nightclub offered its "sincere apologies to DJ Shadow and his fans for his set being cut short."
Finally, though, we all get to hear the now-notorious "Too Future" mix. Because over the weekend, Shadow and his team uploaded his "Infamous South Beach Set" to SoundCloud.
Check the cut for the full one-hour-26-minute-and-17-second mix, plus the DJ's smartass little note, asking: "Too hard? Too future? Or just too raw?"
All Basses Covered (The Infamous South Beach Set, December 2012)
Beginning in the Summer of 2012 with his Low End Theory guest spots, DJ Shadow's "All Basses Covered" set has morphed and evolved to incorporate as many different contemporary genres of urban and electronic music as possible. From hardcore rap to footwork and juke and beyond, Shadow has combed the web to curate seamless and dexterous blends of the most progressive sounds bubbling up from the underground. 'Too hard?' 'Too future?' Or just too raw? As always, DJ Shadow has provoked crucial flashpoints of discussion about the discipline of DJ'ing that have defined our turbulent times.
