WORLD PREMIERE OF A NEW DJ SHADOW REMIX
We at Solesides proudly present to y'all, the WORLD PREMIERE of the DJ SHADOW remix of 'Eyesdontlie'  by Machinedrum.  Here it is:

We think that track is pretty sweet, great to hear Shadow flipping these new cats & keeping it interesting. We wonder how the more traditional Shadow fans take it. 100% #AllBassesCovered style indeed!  We have more for you today, because....AT LAST, we can hear that rare tape!

Here's A cassette-only release from the first crew DJ Shadow was affiliated with: "Bigger Than Life Productions" from Oakland, circa 1989. Paris mixed two of the tracks. DJ Shadow did scratches for the second release.
