The end of 2012 was a weird one for DJ Shadow. Steadily doing his thing, which included the All Basses Covered DJ tour following the release of his career-spanning box set, the turntablist was tossed into the spotlight in December when his set at South Beach club Mansion was cut short for allegedly being “too futuristic.” The venue issued an apology that implied some heads will roll, but the incident reminded folks across the electronic music spectrum that the differences between the mainstream and underground are as stark as ever.
To start off 2013, Shadow is rolling with the notoriety, uploading a 90 minute set showcasing the sounds that got him removed from the decks in Miami. According to team Shadow, the story behind the mix is …
There apparently is a little bit of justice in the world. Last weekend, DJ Shadow‘s set was cut short at Miami nightclub Mansion, for being “too futuristic.” The internet obviously blew up with fans worldwide defending the legendary DJ who was performing as part of his All Bases Covered Tour. Today, Mansion issued a public apology to DJ Shadow:
“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.

Just when you thought the clubbing world couldn’t get any more tasteless, news this weekend that DJ Shadow was kicked off the decks of Miami’s Mansion club. This just months after similar incidents involving house DJs Mark Farina and Dennis Ferrer and the crowds that allegedly paid to see them.
Shadow was asked to end his set approximately 20 minutes after it began, and was replaced by the far far far less legendary DJ No Máz. The incident was captured on video, with Shadow telling the crowd “I’ve waited a long time to play here, but they said this shit is too future for all y’all.” He then went to his Twitter account to proclaim, “I don’t care if I get kicked out of every rich kid club on the planet. I will never sacrifice my integrity as a DJ…ever.”
