Stem / Long Stem / Transmission 2
Label: Island Records
Though he put in years of work prior to this release, Endtroducing is where most people first heard Shadow. A hypnotic collage of full-bodied drums, swift scratching, and moody, ultra-obscure samples, this record made him an international star. Often pigeonholed as Trip-Hop, Shadow's work is much more diverse than that. Extremely influential and a definite classic.
