Cut Chemist & DJ Shadow's Juke-Bot
Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow commissioned the Juke-Bot to tie-in with their rampantly successful series of "Hard Sell" DJ sets, which kicked off in front of 15,000 people at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl in June, 2007. Since then, the duo have released a plethora of material to promote the shows, including two CDs, a DVD, posters, t-shirts, and now, a roto-molded vinyl toy, all featuring the Insect-designed Juke-Bot.
"We conceived it as a throwback to a pre-digital era," Shadow explains. “There's something about a jukebox doing battle with pesky iPods that seems to resonate with people. It's a kind of protest against the technology rat-race, particularly where music is concerned."
Quantities of Juke-Bot are limited to 500 worldwide, and it is currently available EXCLUSIVELY at ShopDjShadow.com. Juke-bot will also be sold at the last "Hard Sell" tour dates (see www.djshadow.com/tour for more information). JUKE-BOTS ARE GO!
