Cut Chemist has been recording and performing for over 30 years, coming to prominence as a founding member of both the rap group Jurassic 5, and Grammy award-winning Latin funk outfit, Ozomatli. He also collaborated with DJ Shadow on what would turn out to be one of the world’s most sought after mix CD’s, Brainfreeze, soon to be followed by its sequel, Product Placement. After a tour supporting Shakira in 2007, he headlined The Hollywood Bowl as part of ‘The Hard Sell’ tour with DJ Shadow. Last year he also toured the globe alongside DJ Shadow playing only original vinyl taken from hip-hop founder Afrika Bambataa’s extensive vinyl library. Indeed, they don’t come much more decorated in the hip-hop and turntablism world than Cut Chemist.
