The release highlights Shadows earliest productions on the Akai MPC and contains previously unreleased material spanning from 1992 to 1996. Included among the highlights are instrumental tracks from an aborted 1994 EP planned with The Gift Of Gab. which includes the original demo of what would eventually become >Six Days<.
The new collection of "MPC Era" tracks follows on from the much-loved "4-Track Era" releases from 2008 and 2009, and establishes a pattern which should be familiar to Shadow fans. "I like to follow up new material (such as the recent 'The Less You Know, The Better' LP) with a tastefully-done archival project," Shadow explains. "As long as the old stuff is given a context and doesn't overshadow the new, I think it's a healthy exercise for me, and one that re-calibrates me for whatever new musical path lies ahead. I think it's important to revisit where you've been occasionally so that you can determine where to go."
