Forget Entroducing. DJ Shadow isn't interested in nostalgia, or his many ex-personalities. Catching up with the Bay Area hip-hop producer, we discuss the concepts behind The Outsider, with the conversation leading to the streets of Oakland, Calif., where hyphy gets a bad rap from the evening news while the boulevards ooze with the music's urban backbeat. We talk a little about his past, touching briefly on U.N.K.L.E. and working with Thom Yorke. He even gets political.
