List of best songs from music producer, DJ and songwriter DJ Shadow (the stage name for Josh Davis.) DJ Shadow was a key figure in popularizing instrumental and alternative hip-hop in the early and mid-1990s. His debut album, "Endtorducing...," was the first mainstream record to be recorded using entirely sampled material. This list brings together the top tracks from DJ Shadow's 4 studio albums, as well as live recordings, compilations and remixes he has released during his long and varied career.

DJ Shadow's sound is largely based on the manipulation of samples from rare or obscure previously-recorded music. Shadow in particular is notable for combining sounds and music from a wide variety of eras and genres. (He's said to have a massive collection of over 60,000 records.) In the early phase of his career, in the early 1990s, Shadow worked with numerous icons of the West Coast alternative and underground hip hop scene. In 1993, along with Blackalicious and LYrics Born, Shadow created the Solesides hip hop label and released his first 12", titled "Entropy." The label was eventually disbanded 3 years later.

"Endtroducing..." was released in 1996 and brought Shadow's sound to a much larger audience. It is now considered a hip-hop classic and was named by Time Magazine as one of the Best 100 Albums of all time. Shadow went on to release a singles compilation, numerous also LPs and produced the soundtrack to the documentary film Dark Days.
