Press On

Six years later, DJ Shadow reintroduces himself

"Any culture that's fascinated too much with its own past is dead already," Davis says of the creative inertia that often swallows achievements like the one he made in 1996. "Now you have these museum exhibits traveling around America where it's supposed to educate people about hip-hop, and you have, like, Kool Moe Dee's sunglasses behind a glass case, or KRS-One's rhyme book enshrined in gold. It's like, 'Come on.' It's not about all that. You have to know the roots of it, but it's about innovation and progression. It's about 'who's the baddest?'" For now, DJ Shadow might be.
