Cut Chemist Afrika Bambaataa

Parallel to the current Renegades of Rhythm Tour with Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow paying tribute to Afrika Bambaataa and his legendary record collection, Cut Chemist drops the timely Mix By Jimmy mixtape.

“Take a peak into the exclusive material from hip-hop pioneer DJ Afrika Bambaataa,” says Cut Chemist. “Mix By Jimmy features recordings Bambaataa had pressed to acetate for spinning live at shows in the late ’70s and early ’80s. This mix includes entirely unreleased material along with demo versions of hits like ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat,’ ‘Renegades of Funk,’ and ‘Planet Rock.’

“Listen and take a trip through the deepest part of the most important music collection of our time,” Cut concludes.



Renegades of Rhythm is on tour now.
