DJ Shadow’s latest track “Bergschrund,” made with Berlin-based pianist and experimental composer Nils Frahm, will have your heart pumping along to the beat. The gated synth line seems simple at first before the instrumental enlarges and blooms and lurches. The title, an obscure German word for a mountain ice crevasse, relates to the title of DJ Shadow’s upcoming album—The Mountain Will Fall—which features yet another choice collaboration “Nobody Speak” (with Run the Jewels) which will be released at the end of this month.
