I’m sure you remember the news that spread rapidly from site to site of DJ Shadow’s boot from the decks while playing a set at Mansion in Miami just a little bit ago. Well as promised, DJ has uploaded and officially released the infamous mix that promptly ended his night. The club since apologized to the DJ:
We offer our most sincere apologies to DJ Shadow and his fans for his set being cut short at Mansion this past weekend. This error should not have happened and will not happen again, especially as we pride ourselves on creating an environment that cultivates and respects innovators such as DJ Shadow. We have learned a lot from this error and made changes within our organization to ensure that Mansions vision, and the vision of our guests, will never be compromised again.
According to our friends at Mixmag, the promoter had deemed the drum and bass that Shadow had dropped about twenty minutes into the set “too futuristic” and therefore brought the set to a halt. An interesting reason to completely shut someone down. In any event, Shadow has thanked his fans for backing him through the Mansion affair, and has stated:
I appreciate everyones support. Obviously I should have never been booked there in the first place. Square peg in a round hole, etc #iDoMe.
