Hip hop lovers mark your calendars for Sunday August 28th. Joshua Davis, known as DJ Shadow, will be playing at the Gexa Energy Pavillion this coming Sunday. Davis, who is originally from San Jose California, is considered a pioneer in instrumental hip hop. He gained massive recognition with his 1996 release of Endtroducing which is considered to be the "first completely sampled Album." Sampling "is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a different sound recording of a song or piece." This has become extremely popular in electronic music composition and hip hop. In 2006 TIME magazine named his record one of the "All-TIME" 100 best albums
