About

Can I Kick It? is an innovative film experience that pushes the envelope of sound syncing, where classic martial arts films (including anime) are remixed live by SHAOLIN JAZZ co-founder DJ 2-Tone Jones. The result is a redefined music experience as 2-Tone creates a live mixtape (soundtrack) to each film, accentuating specific scenes with well-timed DJ techniques. For this special presentation of Can I Kick It?, SHAOLIN JAZZ focuses on Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic The Warriors. Inspired by Sol Yurick’s 1965 novel of the same title, Hill combines pure pulp storytelling and poetic images to tell the tale of the mythical plot: When a charismatic gang leader is shot at a conclave in the Bronx meant to unite all the gangs in New York City, a troupe from Coney Island called the Warriors get blamed and have to fight all the way back to their own turf. An influential film in Hip Hop culture, The Warriors has been referenced by artists ranging from 2Pac, Wu-Tang, and Craig Mack.
