DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist come together once again to go on tour, this time as part of the Renegades of Rhythm tour, part of the ongoing retrospective of the enduring legacy of hip hop and its vanguard, Afrika Bambaataa. The performance will feature six turntables and corresponding instrumentation and visuals to tell the story of the “The Master of Records.”
In a recent interview, Shadow explained: “It’s not gonna be a b-boy review or a throwback show – our job as DJ’s is to really take the collection and be respectful of it, but take it someplace new.” He also adds, that there are 3 parts of Bambaataa to showcase: Him as a thinker, a visionary, and an artist.
To provide a little insight to how big this is, check out NYT’s article on Shadow and Cut’s 2008 Hard Sell tour, when the two showcased the birth and history of the vinyl.
