The Shabazz Palaces guys took me backstage last Thursday night and told me they didn’t want any normal looking photos. That I should let loose and F around. This is the third time I’ve gotten to shoot photos of these guys and every show just gets moire fluid. Every so often you get to run into real musicians who aren’t at all concerned with anything beyond their art. Shabazz cuts their way into uncharted dreamscape by pushing the limits of percussion and non-traditional time signatures in hip-hop. Over the last year Ish’ and Tendai have carried their own torch and have been sloughing off stale hip-hop convention like so many years of dead skin. Catch these guys before they’re on to the next.
