DJ SHADOW returns to Portland, OR this October with his stunning audio-visual show launched in July of this year. As innovative as ever, DJ SHADOW's current live presentation involves playing classic tracks as well as new material from inside a giant 3D sphere, called “The Shadowsphere”, imposed with stunning live visuals courtesy of audio-visual genius Ben Stokes.

DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop's early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks.

Shadow's first full-length, “Endtroducing…”, was released in late 1996 to immense critical acclaim in Britain and America. “Preemptive Strike,” a compilation of early singles, followed in early 1998. Later that year, Shadow produced tracks for the debut album by U.N.K.L.E., a long-time Mo' Wax production team that gained superstar guests including Thom Yorke (of Radiohead), Richard Ashcroft (of the Verve), Mike D (of the Beastie Boys), and others.

His next project came in 1999, with the transformation of Solesides into a new label, Quannum Projects. Nearly six years after his debut production album, the proper follow-up, “The Private Press,” was released in June 2002. The following year Shadow released a mix album, “Diminishing Returns,” and in 2004 he released a live album and DVD, “Live! In Tune and on Time.” In 2006 he released another long awaited full-length album “The Outsider,” which featured rising Bay Area Hyphy rappers including Keak Da Sneak and E-40. “The Outsider” also featured a single with Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest), which led to Shadow's first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Shadow's website relaunched in August 2009, enabling him to sell digital downloads direct to his fans through his own autonomous storefront. 2009 also saw the announcement of Shadow's involvement with DJ Hero, an Activision video game which features Shadow as a playable character within the game. Shadow also contributed several mixes to the game.

While Shadow's profile has never been higher, he has increasingly shied away from music press and traditional forms of social networking. 2010 has seen Shadow hard at work on his next album, which he has called “a return to form”.

      my boyfriend has never been downtown portland to a dj party and I’d love to take him for his first time he’s from seattle and been out a lot up there and needs to see pdx has a hip hop scene too!

    I would be ecstatic about going to see DJ Shadow live! He was one of the first hip hop artists to truly catch my ear. Coming from a mostly rock influence I’ve avoided hip hop because of the general quality of what was played on the radio but DJ Shadow opened my mind and showed me the potential of the genre. To see him live would probably be one of the highlights of this year!

    HUGE fan. pick me.

  4. C.A. October 25, 2010 at 4:05 pm #

    Because DJ shadow is my babydaddy.

  5. Mary Mc October 25, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    Because my my Unkle, The Outsider, is currently writing a Private Press piece to which he Entroduces his theories on Quannum Latyrx.
    (also b/c he is a total tight ruler & is one of the reasons i started dj-ing)

    I will quit smoking if I win tickets. Scouts honor.

  7. Sean October 25, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    Because Endtroducing… inspired me to become a DJ

    By Wednesday evening I’ll have worked 6 hours on Sunday, 14 hours on Monday, 18 hours on Tuesday, and 15 hours on Wednesday, and all without any breaks. And I still have to work full days Thursday and Friday. Believe me when I say that nothing would hit the spot more than to see this show. Please help give my aching bones the break they need.

    If I won tickets, that would be the best birthday present!! Plus it would take me back to a time when I was 16, sneaking out of my parents house, and listening to Organ Donor while thinking life was difficult. Man, was I stupid. But at least I had good taste in music!

  11. Jaimee October 25, 2010 at 5:05 pm #

    I would love to win these and take my husband! He turned me on to DJ Shadow love Midnight in a Perfect World.

    I wish I could think up some way of delivering a highly amusing response, but all I have to say is that I lost my job and GF of 5 years recently. Not whining about it, just trying to make the best of it all, which would me massively easier if I could afford to get out once in a while.
    I really like what I’ve heard of DJ Shadow, but unfortunately haven’t been able to buy music for a while, so I can’t say I am the biggest fan or anything. This would be a great opportunity to hear more though.

  13. zee October 25, 2010 at 5:18 pm #

    I haven’t seen DJ Shadow in a few years. Can’t wait to hear his new album “a return to form”.

  14. Kenny Schmidt October 25, 2010 at 5:21 pm #

    Never seen DJ Shadow live, but I can’t even count how many times I have seen DJ Wicked & Pigeon John live!

  15. Steve Ferrero October 25, 2010 at 7:45 pm #

    Been a fan for a long, long time. Endtroducing is one of the greatest albums in my collection-would love to hear some live Shadow in person.

  16. Corinna October 25, 2010 at 7:55 pm #

    DJ Shadow is thhh-shit.

    If I won these tickets I’d freak out like a ninny-head. I’d take my bestfran to the concert and we’d bust so-fresh moves to his sexy grooves.
    His music is smooth and carries a unique energy, ah I want want want those tickets SO bad!

    please :)

    Flying in to Portland from the bay that day, what a wonderful coincidence. Would love to take my lady whom I am visiting, what an awesome start to her birthday weekend.

    you should pick me to win these tickets because I love DJ Shadow and I light up a room so the Shadow will be even better.

  21. Literati October 26, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    DJ Shadow is my favorite non-instrument playing musician, but I’ve never seen him live. If I miss this show, then I won’t know for sure if he is actually human or just some complex beat-mixing machine.

  22. jacob October 27, 2010 at 11:00 am #

    Uh, PDX Pipeline is giving away FREE tickets to Shadow?
    Yes, PLEASE!

  23. Dan V October 27, 2010 at 11:55 am #

    I would like tickets because I’m a hoarder the same way DJ Shadow hoards stacks and stacks of vinyl.

  24. Izm1 October 27, 2010 at 12:04 pm #

    I’ve been collecting dj shadow records since the 1st releases on uk label MoWax in the early/mid 90’s. Dj shadows innovative style and atmosphere helped form the style I use today in my mixing and selection, unfortunately I’ve never had the opportunity to catch him live. I’d like to.


  25. Michael Pittman October 27, 2010 at 12:06 pm #

    My best friend is in town from DC and I’ve been telling him and showing him all week that Portland is the greatest city in the US. Taking him to see DJ Shadow at the Roseland on his last night here would be the icing on the cake…it’d blow his mind!!! I would love to go to this show!!

  26. david October 27, 2010 at 12:09 pm #

    I have been listening to DJ Shadow for forever and he has been a long time favorite for me. Entroducing is an album that has inspired me and always been in my top 3. The reason you should give me the tickets is because i have tried to see DJ Shadow and been shut out. The first time was on the East Coast, we were driving to the show and the car i was in broke down 1 hour away, i still have the ticket from that nights show unused. The second time was at Bonnaroo, we were walking to the stage when my girlfriend got food poisoning. She had to run to the porta potty (poor girl) and we were unable to make it to the show. I could even hear it going on just faintly in the distance. And this time I’m just flat broke and if i dont win tickets i just wont be able to go. So please please dont let me get shut out again.

    Seeing Dj shadow live is not to be missed. I have seen the acts with cut chemist on DVD and would love to see him live.

  28. cmbturbo October 27, 2010 at 12:55 pm #

    I need a reason to turn the footy off the tube and leave the house today. A date with DJS just might do the trick.

  29. Lisa October 27, 2010 at 1:19 pm #

    I’d love to see DJ Shadow. Even though I’ve been a fan for many years, his shows have somehow eluded me. It’d be a great honor to get to see him at a great venue like the Roseland in Portland.

  30. soney baloney October 27, 2010 at 1:48 pm #

    Need to throw out my hip on the dancefloor!!

    Its going to be a long cold hard winter if I dont get to go..
    tears in my beers!

  31. soney baloney October 27, 2010 at 2:01 pm #

    throwing my rusty lil hips out and crushing a few vodkas in due process sounds better than the cold and long winter that lies ahead….
    not to metion I ADORE THE SHADOW!!
    make this girl smile :)

  32. Stephi October 27, 2010 at 2:04 pm #

    I want to see DJ Shadow but can’t afford to. :(! Help me out!

  33. Benjamin October 27, 2010 at 2:24 pm #

    When DJs begin to be Endtroduced to the Hall of Fame, this guy will lead the way. Killer, killer, killer.

  34. Rick Hofsheier October 27, 2010 at 4:00 pm #

    I would love to go, but I’m broke as a joke. This would make my month and put off the seasonal depression for another week or two.

  35. shelley October 27, 2010 at 4:20 pm #

    It would be awesome to go, and there is no way I could go without a free ticket. I’d never confirm it, but I’d probably start crying if he does “midnight in a perfect world.”

  36. Bev October 27, 2010 at 4:48 pm #

    Bombay the Hard Way, one of the most unique paths that Shadow took. Like many others, I have listened to him for awhile…..grew up with his name and music just there for the past 15 years….I can remember playing DJ Shadow and then Handsome Boy Modeling School, right after, which is why hearing both Automator, and Shadow together was great. I’ve always intended to see DJ Shadow live, but somehow missed the chance. Unfortunately now, I don’t have the cash, (unemployed grad student) and would really love to go.
