The drum & bass pioneer will play the US in support of his latest compilation in July.
At the beginning of this year, the London-based drum & bass trailblazer—who helped to invent the genre in the '90s and then pushed its boundaries with classic albums like 1995's Timeless—announced his first-ever greatest hits compilation, The Alchemist. That three-disc collection, which showcases the full breadth of his style, including early flirtations with jungle, material as Rufige Kru and a slew of remixes of artists like Björk and Garbage, is the basis for his latest journey to North America, where he'll play eight dates in the US.
The tour will kick off July 3rd in Los Angeles, taking in shows in Houston, San Francisco and Vegas for the first leg. At the San Francisco party he'll play alongside Ryan Hemsworth and Groundislava. The second leg begins on July 11th, and comprises dates in Denver, NYC and Minneapolis, before wrapping up in Washington DC.
