I don’t have too much info on Jeremy Storch, but I can provide some insight on to who he was. Jeremy (AKA Jay Storch) was the organist for a Long Island based blue-eyed soul group called The Vagrants. The group disbanded in the late 1960′s after a few minor hits. Storch decided to try his hand at a solo career instead of joining other bands as many of the other members did. The sound of his album was more prog-rock/singer-songwriter than his earlier work with The Vagrants. His song “I Feel a New Shadow” was used by DJ Shadow.
DJ Shadow hardly needs an introduction, as he’s regarded as one of the best crate diggers / producers of all time. For some reason, he never really caught on with the mainstream Hip-Hop crowd at the time. Just imagine collaborations with Mobb Deep or Raekwon at their peaks in the mid-90′s. DJ Shadow used the Jeremy Storch sample for “Building Steam with a Grain of Salt“, the first track off his classic debut “Entroducing“. Check it out.
