Product Placement is an album by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist. It was released in 2001 on One29 Records.

Comments[edit]

The CD was on sale only at gig venues on DJ Shadows tours between about 2001–2003 and was made on an extremely limited run (6000 apparently).

The cover has a picture of Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow. Cut Chemist is dressed as a chef, DJ Shadow a moto-cross rider and drinking milk served to him by Cut Chemist. A sticker on the case reads "Now fortified with exclusive "Accu-Blend" technology". On the rear is a picture of a milk carton and the inside shows pictures of some of the records used to make the mix along with the slogan "It's it's so so nice nice we had to do it twice twice" and text that explains the 'recipe' for the record.
