VINYL-ONLY TOUR HONORING AFRIKA BAMBAATAA'S INFLUENCE ON HIP-HOP'S BEGINNINGS
DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist's vinyl-only Renegades of Rhythm tour is continuing throughout November and expanding into new markets across the U.S. and Canada, including a return to New York due to the overwhelming success of two sold-out nights at NYC's Irving Plaza in September. The duo will play at Verboten on Friday, November 7th as part of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival.
These two world-renowned artists and turntablists are spinning the well-loved and well-worn vinyl from the record collection of the founding father of hip-hop and "Master of Records," Afrika Bambaataa.
Shadow and Cut kicked off the tour with two sold-out shows at NYC's Irving Plaza where Bambaataa himself watched from the balcony as the duo pulled his vinyl collection apart and mixed a nostalgic set that chronicled and honored the genre that influenced so many others.

"Deep into their September 4th set at New York's Irving Plaza, as DJ Shadow bent over his spread of turntables, cueing the next sequence of beats, his partner in spin, Cut Chemist, gingerly lifted a piece of 12-inch vinyl from one of his decks and held it aloft, like a round, black equivalent of the Ten Commandments. He had, in fact, just played a religious object." -Rolling Stone
“Afrika Bamabaataa‘s record collection has long been regarded as one of the most comprehensive and expansive archives of hip-hop’s formative stages that exists in the world today. That bold and well-reasoned statement never rang more true than it did last week, when the duo of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist took on the immense task of presenting some the most foundational and iconic cuts of that cratedigger’s master document into one fluid and masterful exposition on the ones and twos. Casual observers, funky fanatics, collectors, hoarders, b-boys and b-girls were all able to bear witness to a turntable orchestra, less an homage and more a reeducation in the art of the break.” -OkayPlayer
Visuals for the tour are supplied by acclaimed video director, multimedia producer and regular DJ Shadow collaborator Ben Stokes. The tour is produced by Jamal Chalabi and Backlash Management.
