From liner notes:
In 1992, there were records, real DJs and real hip hop. There was no Auto-Tune. There was one man and an Akai MPC. Hidden Transmissions is an archival project documenting DJ Shadow's early production days. It's an insider's guide to unreleased collaborations. Included on the project are instrumental tracks from an aborted 1994 EP planned with The Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), featuring the original demo of what would eventually become "Six Days." Find out how it all began.
