University of California Press

This chapter takes a look at DJ Shadow, a member of one of the wealthiest local clans in SMX. The discussion introduces the One Love ideology, which is the assertion of a universal human identity and a privileging of individuality above ethnic and national differences. It discusses Rastafari and the Rastafari message of egalitarianism, and even identifies the secrets of DJ Shadow's success. The chapter also introduces DJ Shadow's notion of Rastafari individuality, which is a way to promote an inclusive politics of belonging without explicitly addressing socioeconomic inequalities.

Keywords:   DJ Shadow, One Love ideology, human identity, individuality, ethnic differences, national differences, egalitarianism, Rastafari individuality, belonging, socioeconomic inequalities
