Davis, California deejay and producer DJ Shadow will release some rare and unheard early recordings next month. Total Breakdown: Hidden Transmissions From The MPC Era, 1992-1996 will release on June 5, featuring compositions made on the Akai MPC sampling drum machine from the Quannum Projects/Solesides Records co-founder.

Several of the 24 tracks were first intended for a subsequently scapped 1994 EP with Blackalicious’ emcee Gift Of Gab, including the demo for what would become “Six Days” on Shadow’s 2002 album, The Private Press.
