On Thursday July 28th, the legendary Afrika Bambaataa will perform with Chico Mann in a special Wax Poetics Showcase. This is the first of a new monthly series that seeks to team legendary DJs from the pages of the magazine with artists on the Wax Poetics record label.

For the kickoff, Godfather of Hip Hop culture, Afrika Bambaataa will DJ a vinyl set making for a rare performance in his home city. Chico Mann will perform his all new live solo show primarily using Ableton Live in conjunction with the  Akai APC 40 and MIDI keyboard; layering parts and simultaneously singing and chanting his notoriously contagious hooks and melodies. In this video, Chico Mann discusses his use of Ableton Live, the upcoming show at Le Poisson Rouge and how Afrika Bambattaa has influenced his own music over the years.
