The theorem of turntablist as musician has been long proven in the capable hands of DJ Logic, whom with jazz as his foundation has become a wax innovator by crossing genres and sprinkling his sound across the map. As one of the world’s most accomplished turntablist’s, DJ Logic is widely credited for introducing jazz into the hip-hop realms and is considered by most as a highly respected session musician and an innovative bandleader.
Since his emergence in the early nineties amidst the Bronx hip-hop scene, the New York City based deejay has been amassing a veritable mountain of collaborations ranging from the likes of: Medeski, Martin & Wood, Christian McBride, Vernon Reid, Charlie Hunter, Jack DeJohnette, John Mayer, Ben Harper, Mos Def and The Rroots.
These days, DJ Logic is focusing on studio endeavors, producing notable projects such as: Re-imagination with jazz piano phenomenon Eldar, collaborating with Vernon Reid on a project he co-founded called the Yohimbe Brothers, touring with Christian McBride in support of Live at Tonic, participating in a side project called Soleside (featuring Kyle Hollingsworth from String Cheese Incident and Speech from Arrested Development), and co-anchoring a rock band with John Popper (The John Popper Project featuring DJ Logic). Logic’s body of work also includes three highly accomplished solo albums (Zen of Logic, The Anomaly, Presents Project Logic), all released on Ropeadope Records.
Most recently he has collaborated with Telluride Jazz Festival headlines Dragon Smoke during their annual performance at the New Orleans Jazz Festival late night series. He is also tight with headliners Lettuce and the rest of the New Orleans Day performers, so expect his Artist At Large status to provide some special moments.
