American DJ and producer, Cut Chemist, is set for a spring run to support his upcoming second studio album Die Cut, which will be released sometime in March. El Dusty, will help support the 17 city first leg of the tour.
The needle will drop on the Die Cut tour on March 2, at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, and end on April 28, at Union Stage in the nations capital of Washington, DC. Cut Chemist will make one quick stop in New York on April 26, at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
Cut Chemist’s new album will feature many familiar names including Deantoni Parks (The Mars Volta), Biz Markie, actress Erika Christensen (Parenthood), tune-yards, Farmer Dave Scher, Dexter Story, and many more. Cut Chemist commented on his upcoming new album:
This is the death of a musical identity and the birth of another. It isn’t just the cut-and-paste style anymore. I’m collaborating with more musicians and sampling less. This is different. The content is emotionally heavier, even though it’s still fun. It harks back to the energy you can share with live musicians rather than being a DJ alone on stage. I wanted to capture that with this style of music.
Since his debut in 1993, Cut Chemist has released two studio albums, eleven DJ mixes, and was part of twelve Jurassic 5 productions. He has appeared on many compilations albums, and collaborated with several artist including Dj Shadow, Liquid Liquid, Ozomatli, and Major Force.
