Bay Area DJ/production legend DJ Shadow has returned with a new record label, Liquid Amber, which has launched with an EP of the same name.
“I’d like to announce a new little imprint I started: it’s called Liquid Amber,” Shadow explained in a press release. ” The first release will feature some of my own songs, and soon, if everything falls into place, I’ll be putting out other people’s music as well. It’ll be primarily digital, with some physical releases from time to time… whatever feels right. I’m going to try to keep it low-key and fun.”
The Liquid Amber EP features two new DJ Shadow tracks, “Ghost Town” and “Mob,” as well as a Machinedrum remix of his 2002 single, “Six Days.”
“‘Ghost Town’ is an ambitious ride through many of the micro-genres within the Future Bass umbrella that have inspired me recently, while ‘Mob’ is an intentionally stripped-down, Cali-certified head-nodder,” Shadow detailed. “Both songs were written, programmed, and mixed by myself, and they represent the forward steps I feel I’ve taken as an engineer. The ‘Six Days’ remix was something I asked Machinedrum to knock out as a tour weapon, and he crushed it (naturally), so I felt it deserved a proper release.”
