Venue and set-times change for DJ Shadow’s Sydney gig
It’s been three years since DJ Shadow last set foot on our shores, but now we’re just a week away from seeing the great man in action once more. If you were thinking of catching him at Sydney’s All Basses Loaded party, though, you’re going to have to adjust your plans a little because the daytime party at the ivy courtyard has been canned in favour of a two-room night time event at the Metro Theatre. While the line-up remains exactly the same, the new running time is 7pm to 2am on Saturday February 8 and will take place across Metro’s main room and The Lair.
Talking to inthemix about his return to DJing, Shadow told us he’s been playing “a combination of brand new stuff, a few old bits, just things that I liked that I thought were under-acknowledged. It just felt really good to be in tune with this generation of beatmakers, as opposed to what people usually associate me with.” If his recent sets are anything to go by, this means we can expect everything from footwork, juke, trap, hardcore rap, hyphy and hip hop to a bit of drum’n’bass.
While all previously purchased tickets are still valid, the promoters are offering refunds through Moshtix and Ticket Fairy for those that can no longer make it. Meanwhile, if you haven’t jumped on board yet, tickets to the Metro gig can be purchased through Ticketek.
