So you’re “so over” hearing the same seven songs blaring from your car radio and then hearing them again with the bass turned up and louder blaring at the most poppin EDM club /pool party/your friend’s basement drunken shindig, urgently trying to attract “females” before the liqueur runs out with his version of today’s hottest tracks…Worry not…we got you. Or rather DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist got you, we’re just here to deliver the news.
This and next month you can catch DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist as they make their way through the US and Canada with the Renegades of Rhythm tour, a vinyl only tour honoring Afrika Bambaataa’s influence on hip-hop’s beginnings. If you don’t know who Afrika Bambaataa is, google it and don’t tell anybody you had to. And even more so, go to the show – you’ve been drinking, getting high and generally enjoying yoself at the wrong places for too long. #justsayin #cuzwe<3you
Recently URB got a chance to speak with DJ Shadow about the tour and how it all happened…
