DJ Shadow - Preemptive Strike
Yes, yes thats right. Dj Shadows Preemptive Strike. You lucky bastards, this is from my collection (almost every album on here is of course) and here I am handing it over to a couple of heads who save the ten bucks I spent on this one. Yep. 10 bones. Was it worth it? Your damn right it was worth it.In fact you could say it was money well spent. Anywhoo..
DJ Shadows Preemptive strike is beautiful trip hop and a mix of acid jazz. This is for purists. This is for travelers on the journey of Dj Shadow, because it takes study and an open mind to appreciate this record. It is a digression back to the old school, but this is Dj Shadow's classroom. It radiates with the layered, entrancing, subtle, and spiritual style that only he brings to the vinyl. Josh Davis(Shadow) is an artist who has stayed fresh from then until now, but this album is like a timeless interlude, a trailmark and a tribute. `What Does Your Soul Look Like` pts 1-4 which actually appear on on the album in track positions 2,3,4,1 are hella creative and for me, the title says it all. Be aware, the true value of this record is something you really have to listen for.
If you like to freestyle these tracks will let your mind grasp dope concepts. I dont know why exactly but believe me it happens.
Have fun with this one and dont forget to practice your free steeelin....
