DJ Shadow's debut "Endtroducing ..... " is a milestone in music and one that anyone interested in non-mainstream music should hear. It might just change your outlook on the possibilities that music has to offer. From the moment the album begins to the moment the album ends, you get a feeling that your ears have been on a wonderful journey. I've been listening to this album for 15 years now and it still sounds fresh and exciting every time I listen to it. Actually "Changeling" is my favorite piece on the album because it starts with a slow keyboard sample before going into a deep bass and drum rhythm and just as I'm feeling relaxed, the most melancholy and uplifting guitar riff starts to play over the top. Other highlights are "Mutual Slump" with its Björk "Possibly Maybe" sample and for all times "Building Steam with a Grain of Salt"
Music Map of DJ Shadow
A truly stunning album.
As far as I could I collected the essential information about these samples in the world wide universe, refreshed or corrected these as far as possible (sound and visualization) and assigned them to the tracks. Shadow used a total of 500 sample to create "Endtroducing" which gave him an entry into the Guinness Book of Records... but I think this was definitely not Josh's intention^^.
"Endtroducing" might just change your outlook on the possibilities that music has to offer.
If you have any question, or additional information, or you even 
detected a content error (upphs!) don't hesitate to place your valid comment. Please DO NOT comment on grammatical minor errors... 
               I know that my English should be improved.

Scratched Nirvana

In German we call it  "Messie-Syndrom": compulsive hoarding (or pathological hoarding or disposophobia) is the excessive acquisition of possessions (and failure to use or discard them), even if the items are worthless, hazardous, or unsanitary. Compulsive hoarding impairs mobility and interferes with basic activities, including cooking, cleaning, showering, and sleeping.
It is not clear whether compulsive hoarding is an isolated disorder, or rather a symptom of another condition, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. (excerpts from wiki)

A famous German, Albert Einstein, stated:
 "Das Genie beherrscht das Chaos"
 "The Genius controls the chaos".

sustainable sample of "Endtroducing....."
With all my respect to both artists!

I felt ashamed writing a song that was not giving hope"

And the guy who runs it figures the

Once in a while he lets you

And once you've lost there's no way back, no way at all"

Lyrics:
Now this happens to be what they might call, or what they might term a remix, a rethink, a rejiggle. So who's that?
I see mmmmany lights before me...many lights!
Dark shadows, nice Unkles,and a Rooty-Toot Manuva
Swell then! A shizzle! More bass!
Find me a space, find me a space on, on the beat, yeah!
Round chemist, menace, who that met off for this five whore
Totally soft, from jokey-jammin'.
Now we plannin' now we mannin' that mission now
Rediss and dismantle, my spambo
Knockin' you down, come catch this sound
Heavy weight now, takin' you there
You made me take wow, wait now
Walk to the light, that baptism
Medicinal positionin'
Visit now we fishin' in my jin sin in acid
See my dick's never flaccid
Tax machine, leanin' and mean, sweat 'til it hurts
Splurt my bambino, my Brian or my Eno
Oops-my-daisy,
Can't see your face never faze me
Love for day my oxi,Sonny is he crazy?
Yes y'all, chicks in the bathroom
They hippy high heels with the lippy
Now we sick to the back tooth
Uncouth, corner the room
They'll cut root now
Sonic yarp youth
See the light, see the truth now
You little piece of dick brained, horse shit, slime sucking son of a whore!
You live with a cocksucking mynx, you scumbag, you low-lifed motherfucker!
Badder boy, ship ahoy
Ghosts how we do this
We fucked up, we tucked up
Leave me to thief police car
Ride don't know me
Won't you walk with me slowly?
Yes y'all, you don't got no time to be stood
One doosh, one toosh
Irrigation, colonic
My trance for you, 'tronic
We on it like a sonic
We done it 'cos we dance from long time
The prime
Porky walky
See the codes on my
My walkie talkie
Breaker one nine, breaker ten to we stage you
True up to the faith
'cause it just can't be replaced
Put a poem on that dark place
See it from that dump state
Burn down that hate shootin'
