DJ Shadow pays tribute to Depeche Mode

On his monthly “Find, Share, Rewind” radio show for KCRW in Los Angeles, DJ Shadow has paid tribute to Depeche with a DJ set of some of his favorite Mode tracks. Not only is DJ Shadow an official Depeche Mode remixer, he’s an innovator who has equally achieved legend status and he’s never been shy about expressing his admiration for the band.

“They were a huge influence on me working on my first album” – DJ Shadow re: “Endtroducing”

For the “Legends” portion of the show, he did a 30 minute Depeche Mode DJ set that even includes a radio ID from Martin L. Gore himself as well as some insight from DJ Shadow. KCRW describes his show: “Bay Area groundbreaker DJ Shadow brings his innovative style to an exclusive monthly music residency on KCRW. In Find, Share, Rewind; Shadow guides listeners through decades of genre-bending musical evolution.”

The set starts at the 28 minute mark, so check it out here:
