It's rare for a DJ to play the Hollywood Bowl. It's even rarer for a DJ to play such a set exclusively of 7" 45s. That sold out show was DJ Shadow and fellow turntable-freak Cut Chemist. Shadow, born Josh Davis, can do things on the wheels of steel that forces other jocks to take notice. As a music maker, he's blended hip-hip, downtempo, soul, jazz into classic works that can only be labeled "great." According to Activision, DJ Shadow is a DJ Hero. Guess what? They're right. E3 attendees would agree.
