It was created by the artist Ruffmercy, who has worked with Earl Sweatshirt, Run The Jewels, Danny Brown, Dilla and Nas, and beyond. The album, Shadow’s first in four years, finds the pioneering DJ and producer exploring new realms of composition. It debuted at #1 on iTunes’ electronic chart in 16 countries and became Shadow’s first #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart in the US.
