In late 2013, the pair were commissioned to compile a new mix from the Bambaataa record collection. After spending four days viewing 40,000 records in a freezing cold basement in Queens, New York, they realised the collection contained the original Bronx block-rockin’ pieces of wax that Bambaataa used to light the hip-hop fire in the Bronx in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

They decided that they wanted their next show to be a tribute and homage to Bambaataa using only his records. MacFadden and Davis initially pulled 1500 records from the 40,000, then whittled that down to the 200-250 records they use for the show. Bambaataa, 58, gave the project his blessing, and their next challenge was to contextualise the wide diversity of styles – rock, punk, new wave, soul, disco, soca, calypso, reggae, electronic, dub, salsa and, of course, rap – into a cohesive show.

They decided to present different “chapters” on Bambaataa: the DJ/record collector, the socio-political activist with his cultural awareness group, the Universal Zulu Nation, and the recording artist who produced hip-hop touchstones like Renegades of Funk, Looking for the Perfect Beat and Planet Rock.

“I became a fan in about 1984 when I saw his Renegades of Funk music video,” recalls MacFadden. “That was my first introduction to him. I saw this music video and it made a big impression on me as a youth. I learned more and more about him by finding other records of his and backtracking – going through his back catalogue and learning about how he was a record collector, and the people he inspired, like Jungle Brothers and Prince Paul, who I was inspired by directly. Every time I learned about an artist I was inspired by, it always traced back to Bambaataa every time.”

MacFadden and Davis have been touring Renegades of Rhythm, a six-turntable affair, for the last six months, playing around 65 shows in North America, the UK and Europe. In New York City, Bambaataa himself even attended the two shows, watching on approvingly from the balcony.

“We always try and make a challenge for ourselves,” says MacFadden of his collaborations with Davis, “and I think we definitely rise to the occasion with this one. This one’s special to us because it’s about somebody else and their legacy entirely. It’s not about us and our records. It’s somebody else’s rep and somebody else’s legacy on the line, so we feel a bit more pressured to represent that.”

DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist’s Renegades of Rhythm is at the Forum, city, tonight,  Golden Plains festival, March 7-9, and the Espy in St Kilda, March 11.
