Turntable wizards DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist are set to embark on a tour unlike any other. The Renegades of Rhythm tour is a celebration of Hip-Hop pioneer and Zulu Nation leader, Afrika Bambaataa.

The DJ’s will spin vinyl from Bambaataa’s personal collection that’s archived at Cornell University’s Hip-Hop Archive.

“The program will be multifaceted,” DJ Shadow explained. “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.

The tour will kick off on September 1 in Toronto, Ontario Canada and wind up on October 9 at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Renegades of Rhythm tour will make stops in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, and Los Angeles among other cities.
