On Saturday, June 17, Brooklyn’s own DJ Premier and the Badder Band will touch down at Concord Music Hall for an evening of hip hop and funk heaven as part of the group’s newly announced “The Catalogue” Bash tour! Tickets to the show are available for purchase now via Ticketfly.com.
Remaining as one of the most influential hip hop producers of the ’90s, DJ Premier’s name now stands among those like Dr. Dre and RZA as a shining, foundational legend within the community. His work has appeared on several of the genre’s most defining albums, including Nas’ Illmatic, the Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die, Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt, Jeru the Damaja’s The Sun Rises in the East, and Mos Def’s Black on Both Sides.
DJ Premier’s partnership with the live Badder Band now throws his productions into a new stratosphere of engagement and wild funk potential. Featuring live drums, bass and brass, the DJ Premier live show experience has evolved into a new animal, wowing audiences around the country.
Most recently, DJ Premier teamed up with vocalist Miguel to release an uplifting R&B swayer complete with his iconic brand of record scratches and sampling. Listen to the work below, and prepare your bodies for an immersive live show experience like no other when he hits Chicago this June.
