Win a Pair of Tickets to the Friday, September 5 Show:
A Vinyl-Only Tour
DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist are about to embark on a tour like no other and you have the chance to be there! Aptly titled The Renegades of Rhythm tour, famous DJs/producers DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist will be recounting the history and impact of Hip-Hop and honors the legacy of the legendary “Master of Records,” Afrika Bambaataa on their decks. DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist will be using only vinyl pulled from Bambaataa’s historic collection – over 40,000 strong and permanently archived at Cornell University – and will aim to present Bambaataa’s legacy in all its genre-busting and socially-minded complexity.
The Renegades of Rhythm tour will use six turntables and a variety of real-time effects. “It adds another performance level, real-time sampling from the record that’s being played,” says Cut Chemist. “The program will be multifaceted,” DJ Shadow explains. “Bambaataa as artist, exploring the influence of his classics like ‘Planet Rock;’ Bambaataa as collector, and the genre-defining breaks he discovered; and Bambaataa as peacemaker and force for social change. He influenced an entire generation worldwide, so we feel a great obligation to get it right.”
