"'Corridors' blends DJ Shadow's spaced-out industrial boom bap with Price's cinematic scope." - Rolling Stone



DJ Shadow has released an otherworldly visual for his ‘The Mountain Has Fallen’ EP-closer “Corridors,” featuring Oscar-winning composer Steven Price (Baby Driver / Gravity / Suicide Squad). The “Corridors” video comes on the heels of Shadow’s surprise ‘The Mountain Has Fallen’ EP (Mass Appeal Records), which also features collaborations with Nas and Danny Brown. Shadow recruited Steven Price, who he’s long been a massive fan of, to write and program the strings on “Corridors.” Watch the mystifying visual, directed by Dan Emmerson, via Pitchfork: http://bit.ly/2uHhacR
"From the start of my last album, I envisioned collaborating with other instrumentalists who operate outside of the bass and hip-hop realms, ultimately working with the amazing Nils Frahm and Matthew Halsall.  Like many, I had always been enthralled by the soundtrack for the film 'Gravity,' and went about connecting with Steven purely as a fan.  I was overjoyed when the opportunity to combine on a song came to pass.  His ability to harness orchestral elements and join them with a sound design aesthetic made my contributions seem almost effortless, which is the mark of a fruitful partnership." – DJ Shadow, on “Corridors”
“Turns out sometimes you should meet your heroes.  Working with Josh to create Corridors, hearing musical ideas and phrases come back to me twisted and skewed through the filter of his unique sensibilities, was an amazing experience.   The mark of a good collaboration is when the track heads off in a direction you could never have imagined when working on your own, and no one puts a track together like DJ Shadow.  It was an honour to work with him.” – Steven Price, on “Corridors”

Shadow’s four-song ‘The Mountain Has Fallen’ EP was released to acclaim earlier this month, including a Best Album of the Week designation from New York Magazine, a “release to hear now” selection by Entertainment Weekly and praise from Pitchfork, who proclaimed “Shadow’s history of fuck-what-you-think iconoclasm puts these collaborative highlights in a more musical context that pushes past simple optics.”
