You can make an entirely new work of art by snipping from magazines and arranging them into a collage. DJ Shadow applies this logic to music, where the snippets are samples. Entroducing… is nothing but samples. It was a long, drawn-out labor of love assembled over years, resulting in a peculiar record which Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic called “a hazy, half-familiar dream.” Like St. Elsewhere, Paul’s Boutique, and Maxinquaye, this is a mosaic listening experience: sprawling through speakers, revealing new snippets with each rerun, never losing its ability to surprise, amaze, or confuse.
