Music fans are in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience when turntablists supreme DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist celebrate the legacy of Hip-Hop vanguard and Universal Zulu Nation founder, Afrika Bambaataa on their Renegades of Rhythm tour Friday 13th March 2015.

“This has never been done before, definitely not on this scale. They’re HIS records, with his blessings. This isn’t just any copy of ‘X’ breakbeat, it’s the copy, the copy that started everything. Not just any records, the master of records’ records.” – DJ Shadow.

Using only vinyl pulled from Bambaataa’s historic collection – over 40,000 strong and permanently archived at Cornell University – DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist aim to present Bambaataa’s legacy in all its genre-busting and socially-minded complexity. DJ Shadow states, “His collection includes not just Soul and Rap, but also Soca, Calypso, Dub, Salsa…it’s obvious that this music was important to him, and it’s reflected in his own music. For example, when the Soulsonic Force is singing an African chant, it actually comes from a Manu Dibango record. That’s when being a crate-digger comes in handy – you have to be able to pick up on the references and reiterate them.”

[DJ Shadow] Regarded as one of the most influential and consistently innovative artists to emerge in the last 20 years, Josh “Shadow” Davis is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo’ Wax label. DJ Shadow most recently released an ambitious and comprehensive retrospective of his finest recordings entitled Reconstructed: The Best of DJ Shadow (released on one single CD and double vinyl) and Reconstructed: The Definitive DJ Shadow (a multi-disc box set).

[Cut Chemist] Cut Chemist founded the rap group Jurassic 5 and helped form the Grammy award winning Latin funk outfit, Ozomatli. Jurassic 5 would become one of the biggest hip hop bands in the late 90s and 2000s. During this time, Cut Chemist also created the groundbreaking all 7" size record mix series with DJ Shadow. The series has included three releases, Brainfreeze, Product Placement and The Hard Sell all of which went on to become staples with both record collectors and turntablists all over the world.
