DJ Shadow - Action Adventure

Constructed as a nearly all-instrumental journey, Shadow released the first track "Ozone Scraper" a peppy non-verbal spiritual cousin to Berlin's "The Metro," back in August, with an accompanying video shot in Uzbekistan by director Stefano Ottaviano, portrays a native motorcyclist riding zen-like across the landscape.

Shadow revealed to his Instagram followers, "I needed to get personal and make music for myself again. I didn’t want to compromise or write music to give someone else a runway, I wanted to force myself to permeate every available sonic space and 'own' the total composition."
