DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist have outdone themselves together in the past. Their new show, entitled The Hard Sell, incorporates eight (8!) turntables and two guitar loop pedals, allowing tricks and complexity rarely attempted by a DJ duo. As with the two previous sets, the pair eschew their own material in favour of an amalgam of music from all eras and styles, providing for amusing and provocative mash-ups; rap mixes with fiddle music, doo-wop with new wave, and everything in between… all while avoiding the obvious, “been there, heard that” stuff you get from most DJs. It’s going to be special… In the words of Shadow himself, “we want to play something to make everyone smile… and then send them running for the exits!” Don’t miss this opportunity to experience California’s two most cutting-edge DJs.
