DJ Shadow on Digging

This clip is from the film “Scratch”, and really shows just how deeply and extensively great DJs (such as Shadow) search for fresh samples. I love what he says about how popularity is transient, and how the vast majority of the records he comes across in the basement of the store featured in the film are from artists that have been long forgotten (and that most people did not ever know in the first place). And the fact that he’s been digging around the same record store for 11 years, still finding new material each time, is pretty incredible. I don’t think the clip requires any more explanation…check it out.
