Cut Chemist ft. Chali 2na & Hymnal: 'Work My Mind'

Cut Chemist has long been an innovator in hip hop music and dj culture.  He's a big part of the musical legacy of Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, and released some incredible music on his own.  He's preparing to release another album, Die-Cut is the follow up to his 2006 debut.  Die-Cut features Deantoni Parks, Biz Markie, Erika Christensen, tune-yards, and Dexter Story to name a few.  Today we've got the video for 'Work My Mind' and it features artists you've heard working with Cut Chemist before; Chali 2na and Hymnal.  Watch it below and preorder Die-Cut here!


Cut Chemist: Funk Off Megamix

 Leave it to Cut Chemist to string together an array of rare and awesome finds alongside classic we can't help but go nuts over every time we hear them. Not to mention, almost no one puts such a unique twist on his mix sessions. Big up Cut Chemist!


Classic of the day: Jurassic 5 "A Day At The Races" with Big Daddy Kane & Percee P

One of our favorite tunes from Jurassic 5, the brilliant production team of Cut Chemist and DJ Nu Mark composed the perfect uptempo beat for the four j5 mcs and the legends Big Daddy Kane and Percee P.  This track is pretty much perfect.  Check it:


Tonight: DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist "Renegades of Rhythm" Tour in Toronto

Tickets at the door!  See you there!


DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, together again!

Two of the best selectors (and turntablists) and hip hop producers of all time have rejoined forces for their sure to be MASSIVE new tour starting in September.  The legends themselves are hitting the road to celebrate the one and only Afrika Bambaataa and all things hip hop.  If you love hip hop, you need to be there.  There will be six turntables, lots of live sampling, crazy visuals and a ton of surprises.  As Bambaataa puts it, "They will blow your funky mind".  We believe him, but we still have no idea what to expect.
