    Sónar by Night - SonarClub


DJ Shadow will perform at this year's Sónar by Night, presenting his new album, "The Mountain Will Fall". The King of the sampler composed and recorded the album almost entirely without the use of an instrument, a skill that he has refined since the very beginning with remarkable results, achieving worldwide fame. His new tracks reveal a refreshed and more ambitious Shadow inspired by rhythmic construction and melodic sections, a healthy stylistic development as well as being accompanied by friends including Run The Jewels and Nils Frahm among others. Shadow has devised a brand new and exceptional live format show with sophisticated visuals, in which he will also revisit classics from his repertoire, as well as celebrating 20 years since the release of his legendary debut album "Endtroducing...". In 1996 Josh Davis (DJ Shadow) gave life to a game-changing album developed entirely from elements and samples of other tracks, thereby reaching the summit of sampling. "Endtroducing ..." is a masterpiece whose recent anniversary was celebrated with a remix album by producers including Hudson Mohawke, Daedelus, Kuedo and Clams Casino ( who is also performing at Sónar 2017). The album remains a fundamental cornerstone in music from the last 25 years, the work of a remarkable creator who has never stood still for too long, constantly researching new forms of production and pushing forward his initial instrumental hip-hop sound into new territories, through works like "The Private Press" or "The Outsider". His concert at this year's Sónar is a must see and will undoubtedly be one of the best-remembered moments of the festival.
