What: Back with a bang, a bump and a bit of a grind, DJ Shadow has definitely rediscovered what he lost on The Outsider, and returns to form – and to the city – this December.  His new set, The Less You Know The Better features a dizzyingly eclectic roll call of contributors – our favourite is his turn with Tom Vek (who, incidentally, is heading to The Masque on 11 November – and is always well worth a trip) on the ripped up, guitar-fuelled monster, Warning Call. Check it out, then buy your tickets for a night of beats that are in tune and on time.
