DJ Shadow, his first album-Entroducing- is a classic.
Private Parts is one of my favourite films, the scene with him, Fred Norris and the B movie actress in the bath is comedy gold.
I'm a big fan too, and I agree he is a great interviewer, I loved the interview he did with Johnny Rebel, the racist country singer from the 60's.
I liked his recent thoughts on Robin Williams too, summed up what a lot of people felt.
I love trance, house, dubstep, drum&bass....
Hardwell, Above&Beyond, Mat Zo, Sander van dorm, Knife party, Krewella, Moonbeam, Andy moore, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Excision.... many ~~
It is a good pick, but I would have to go with Alan Freed
