A seminal, incredibly influential hip hop release (also regarded as pretty much the last word in instrumental ‘trip hop’, a term used a lot at the time), Endtroducing is simply one of the defining albums of the 90s. It is famously also the first record ever made entirely from samples of other people's records – with a particularly broad array of sources used, many mined from the catacomb-like basement under the artist’s favourite record store in Sacramento, which has long-since closed its doors. This is the store pictured by photographer B+ on the album cover and in many other shots included in the package. Endtroducing is 20 years old and to celebrate this milestone DJ Shadow has re-opened the sessions to personally curate a further bonus album of remixes by a carefully selected roll call of electronic music luminaries, which he has christened Endtroducing Re-Emagined. This will be added to the successful 2005 2CD Deluxe Edition, along with expanded notes from a new interview conducted by Eliot Wilder (author of the lauded 33 1/3 book on the album) and some never-before-published photographs by B+ and Phil Knott to create the 20th anniversary release as Deluxe 3CD and 6LP (3 x double LPs) sets.
