@DJShadow & @Cut_Chemist's Renegades of Rhythm Tour Returns to NYC

DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist's Renegades of Rhythm Tour Returns to NYC

Magnum PR: 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.

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.
