DJ Shadow Booking Agency Profile

Book DJ Shadow for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The London-based Mo' Wax label's experimental instrumental hip-hop style is largely regarded as having been pioneered by DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis). He first absorbed the heyday of teams like Eric B. and Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy—groups that notably utilized DJs in their ranks—after being inspired by the genre's formative years. In Davis, a NorCal cow-town, Shadow had already been experimenting with recording beats and breaks on a four-track recorder while he was a high school student, but it wasn't until later in college that he co-founded his own Solesides label to release his own music. Through the student radio station, Shadow made connections with Davis' few b-boys, including future Solesides musicians Blackalicious and Lyrics Born, and in 1991 he started distributing the Hip-Hop Reconstruction mix tapes. In 1993, he released his 17-minute beat-head symphony Entropy. His songs gained a lot of traction in the DJ-heavy hip-hop underground before being noticed by Mo' Wax. Endtroducing..., Shadow's debut album, received overwhelmingly positive reviews in both Britain and America when it was released in late 1996. Early in 1998, Preemptive Strike, a collection of debut singles, was released. Later that year, U.N.K.L.E., a long-running Mo' Wax production company, recruited superstar guests including Thom Yorke (of Radiohead), Richard Ashcroft (of the Verve), Mike D (of the Beastie Boys), and others, and Shadow produced tunes for the debut album..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking DJ Shadow to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like DJ Shadow in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too.

CTI can give you the accurate DJ Shadow booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book DJ Shadow for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final DJ Shadow booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will DJ Shadow charge for an event. An example fee to book DJ Shadow is in the starting range of $75,000-$149,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the DJ Shadow agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The DJ Shadow manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book DJ Shadow for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the DJ Shadow agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book DJ Shadow, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the DJ Shadow booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for DJ Shadow, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
