The legendary DJ Shadow will bring his This Mountain Will Fall tour to Australia this May, hitting Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and two special nights at Sydney’s Vivid Festival.

He recently had a chat with The Guardian about the art of sampling and it’s place in music today. “For me, what I’m always reaching for is just a pure form of expression,” he says. “That’s what I look for in music. I want to be taken on a ride, I want to be taken somewhere, and I want to be invested in the artist. And most of the music I identify strongest with is by artists that really live – they’re artists that make music for their entire life and music is their life.”

You can check him out this Wednesday 31st May at 170 Russell supported by Arks. Tickets available from Moshtix.
