DJ Shadow is set to go it alone.
The iconic turntablist is set to pair up with Cut Chemist for a series of Bambaataa inspired tour dates, with new material also in the works.
Founding new imprint Liquid Amber, upcoming release 'The Liquid Amber EP' drops later this year. Let's allow the producer to introduce the project:
Dear Music Lover, I'd like to announce a new little imprint I started: it's called Liquid Amber. The first release will feature some of my own songs, and soon, if everything falls into place, I'll be putting out other people's music as well. It'll be primarily digital, with some physical releases from time to time...whatever feels right. I'm going to try to keep it low-key and fun. At some point we'll probably have a dedicated website, but for now, you can send all inquiries to Mike@djshadow.com.
For all media inquiries contact: SiouxZ@Magnumpr.net and Courtney@Magnumpr.net.
Thanks a lot for your time,
PS: Not much of a manifesto, but I'd rather let the music do the talking anyway.

I’m pleased to announce 'The Liquid Amber EP'. This single/EP serves as the opening salvo in what I hope is a long string of music, by myself and others, on my new imprint: Liquid Amber. There's two new songs, 'Ghost Town' and 'Mob', and a nifty remix of 'Six Days' by Machinedrum.
'Ghost Town' is an ambitious ride through many of the micro-genres within the Future Bass umbrella that have inspired me recently, while "Mob" is an intentionally stripped-down, Cali-certified head-nodder. Both songs were written, programmed, and mixed by myself, and they represent the forward steps I feel I've taken as an engineer. The 'Six Days' remix was something I asked Machinedrum to knock out as a tour weapon, and he crushed it (naturally), so I felt it deserved a proper release.
I'm excited about this music and the new imprint, and I really appreciate everyone's time and consideration.
