DJ Shadow – Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt (1996)

YouTube – Amazon – iTunes – Discogs

Aka DJ Shadow, Josh Davis burst onto the scene in 1996 with his debut album Endtroducing… The album’s cover featured two gents rifling through vinyl, because that is exactly what he liked to do. Instrumental hip hop was the purpose and the samples were collected from rare grooves far and wide. ‘Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt’ samples Lexia, H.P. Riot, Jeremy Storch, Frankie Seay and the Soul Riders. Who? Exactly.
