DJ Shadow was asked to end his performance at Miami nightclub ‘Mansion,’ apparently because his set wasn’t chart-friendly enough.

Club patron Eric Carbonell posted the above phone video accompanied by the following status update on his Facebook wall: “Shadow getting booted off so DJ No Máz can go back on. Stood in long line. Paid $30 cover and $18.00 drinks waiting patiently only for this to happen. Sorry Shadow.”

You can read the full, depressing story on egotripland. I’ll be trying to find a rocket in the meantime.


1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
