You should never count out DJ Shadow. While the masses are rightfully celebrating the anniversary of his milestone sampledelic-hiphop debut album, Endtroducing, he’s done plenty of good work since then, as both producer and DJ (his mixes are always essential). Last year’s The Mountain Will Fall is a late-career reminder that Shadow thrives as a stylistic magpie, a musician constitutionally unable to settle into one groove over a whole record. Whether it’s the title track’s Boards of Canada pastiche, the bizarre trap excursion “Three Ralphs,” the blues-guitar-augmented, Run the Jewels–powered hiphop anthem of “Nobody Speak,” or the crushingly funky and wonky “Bergschrund,” with masterly German keyboardist Nils Frahm adding the oddest synth timbres to appear on a Shadow release in years, Mountain exudes vitality. Dude’s also the rare studio wizard who can bring it live, multimedia-style. DAVE SEGAL
