DJ Shadow

When you start with an album like Endtroducing....., there's really nowhere left to go but down. If DJ Shadow has never managed to surpass his mind-blowing 1996 debut – the first album, lest we forget, to be constructed entirely from samples – it hasn't been for want of trying. The turntablist-turned-producer has dallied in genres ranging from rock to hyphy, while his most recent tour saw him playing inside an enormous globe that formed the centrepiece of an eye-popping projection mapping rig. Anybody remember much about the accompanying album, The Less You Know, The Better? Us neither. Still, if there's one place where Shadow's continued relevance remains beyond doubt, it's when he's behind the decks. Catch him on Sunday night (yeah, Sunday) at Air, where he'll be joined by a raft of talented local spinners including DJ Kensei, Hifana's Keizomachine! and Dexpistols member Daruma.
