“The Renegades of Rhythm show was an object lesson in the early, hard work of DJ culture: the hectic, physical choreography of flipping dozens of black pancakes across turntables, tugging at the actual wax in rapid staccato to create an alien, vocal-like ecstasy.”
“That’s right. Two of the illest scratchers out are getting together for an all-out celebration of the Zulu Nation’s founder and patriarch, taking their blazing vinyl collections on the road for a summit of b-boys and two-steppers across the country. Cause where would hip-hop even be if it weren’t for the intergalactic funk of Planet Rock?”
“New York DJ Afrika Bambaataa changed the music landscape forever with his omnivorous approach to dance music, spawning, in part, the last three decades or so of the genre we’ve now come to call “hip-hop.” Now, a couple of forward-thinking cratediggers from the Bambaataa tradition have come together to announce a tour that pays tribute to the Godfather’s importance to the genre.”
