DJ Shadow Gets the Boot in Miami

Posted: Dec. 26th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Up and coming DJ Shadow might have made a mistake pulling a bait and switch on his Miami audience. Expecting to hear a boss dubstep performance by the DJ, fans were treated with exactly what they had come there to escape - something more mainstream. The poor choice of performance saw him booted off the stage by his own fans.

Hip-hop producer DJ Shadow was booted from his own set at a Miami, Fla., club over the weekend after he was accused of “confusing” fans with his choice of music.

The DJ, real name Joshua Davis, was spinning Spit Thunder by experimental dubstep producer Krampfhaft at the Mansion venue in the early hours of Sunday when a promoter approached him and asked the star to play something more mainstream.

The exchange was caught on camera by a clubgoer and video footage of the incident has since been posted online, showing a disappointed Shadow addressing the crowd, saying, “I’ve waited a long time to play here, but they said this s— is too confusing for all y’all.”
