"The DJ Shadow Remix Project began as an experiment to see if we could engage and empower the online remixing community. Initially, Mike (Fiebach, of DJShadow.com) and I figured we'd award a prize through the site, stream a few winning mixes, and leave it at that.
Eighty or so submissions later, I started thinking 'Hmm, maybe we should open this up a little.'
I love this release, more than I ever dreamed I would. I love the lo-fi basement aesthetic of economic's vision, the sophisticated sheen of Randomatik's 'Scatterbrain' mix, the grit and swagger of Irn Mnky. In many cases, new life has been breathed into songs I had long-since resigned to the past, and made them fresh again. You WILL hear these mixes in future shows, and that's the strongest endorsement I can give as a DJ. From one artist to another, thank you for inspiring me."
