DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist are bringing their vinyl-only Renegades of Rhythm tour to the UK in February 2015 after covering North America this autumn. 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 their North American tour this year 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 honoured the genre that influenced so many others.

Excited to bring the show to the UK next year, they will play three exclusive dates at Manchester Albert Hall, London Forum and Bristol Motion in February 2015.
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.
