DJ Spooky Tour Dates
One of New York's most creative, artistic DJ forces who brings together disparate elements of rock, hip-hop, jazz, jungle and dub to produce sets of sublime energy and originality. With a CV to die for (collaborations with Wu Tang, Sonic Youth and Yoko Ono) and credited for the creation of New York's trip-hop scene, Spooky is a scarily impressive individual. DJ Spooky (That Subliminal Kid) emerged as one of the most noted proponents of turntablism, an approach to hip-hop and DJ'ing whose philosophy merges avant-garde theories of musique concrète with the increased devotion paid to mixing techniques beginning at the turn of the millennium. Influenced equally by John Cage and Sun Ra as well as Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash, few artists have done more to mainstream the DJ-as-artist concept than him.
