Video: DJ Shadow & Little Dragon - "Scale It Back"


California’s DJ Shadow has been making hip-hop instrumentals for over a decade, so his newest effort “Scale it Back” (from his new album The Less You Know, The Better) pretty much shows the man at the top of his game, as he crafts a sexy soul jam that sounds like the backing track for a singer in a smoky, seedy lounge with red velvet walls. Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano provides her crooning vocals in kind. The song’s cute slow-mo video casts a bunch of kids in the mental story card memorizer Ben Pridmore concocts to remember the order of a certain deck. Check it out.
