DJ Shadow has promised to upload the full set that got cut short when he was kicked off the decks at a Miami club last weekend for being "too future" for the crowd.

The California DJ’s set was pulled at Miami’s Mansion nightclub after the promoter whispered to Shadow as he was playing Krampfhaft’s ‘Spit Thunder’. The DJ then addressed the crowd, saying: "I’ve waited a long time to play here, but they said this shit is too future for all y’all." He was subsequently replaced by DJ No Máz.

However, Shadow has now promised fans that he will upload his planned set in full. In a series of tweets, he thanked fans, and said that it was the drum'n'bass he was playing that seemed to have offended the club's promoter.

"I appreciate everyone's support. Obviously I should have never been booked there in the first place. Square peg in a round hole, etc," he wrote. "Ironically it was drum and bass that broke the camel's back(!) Note to self...play more drum and bass!!!"

He added: "Or maybe it was all the trap & juke that preceded it...I dunno. I'll get the set up on soundcloud soon so every1 can enjoy. Happy Holidays!"

After the incident in Miami, the DJ – real name Josh Davis – told the crowd at a gig at the Brooklyn Bowl that he would never "serve up bullshit". He said: "I know it'd probably be a lot easier on all of us if I just got up here and played the same old […] hits that we've heard 500,000 times before, but I feel like, as a DJ, I would be dying inside." He added: "I would never take your respect for me and your money that you paid to get in for granted by serving you up some bullshit. So, for me, this is like a breath of fresh air in my life. I haven't been able to do this in a long time."

DJ Shadow released his debut album 'Endtroducing…' in 1996. He followed it up with 1998’s 'Preemptive Strike', 2002’s 'The Private Press', 2006's 'The Outsider' and 'The Less You Know, The Better' in 2011. Earlier this year, he put out 'Total Breakdown: Hidden Transmissions From MPC Era 1992-1996' – a collection of previously unreleased material.
