5608274DJ Yoda (Old School Hip Hop Set)
DateFriday 24th November 2017
DescriptionDJ Yoda is a multi-award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer, headlining festivals and clubs around the world. No typical club DJ, his interests lie in finding fresh and unique ways to bring turntables out of the club and getting involved in bespoke collaborations. Working with classical composers to neuroscientists; brass bands to film directors; Dr Dre to Dame Evelyn Glennie; Banksy to Mark Ronson; BBC Radio 4 to the BFI, he reinvigorates his craft with wry invention and humorous intent. Internationally respected for his turntablism, the viral success of his Stranger Things Mix racked up more than a quarter million plays on Soundcloud, culminating in his UK Tour of Stranger Things The Mixtape Live. He was Dr Dre's first choice to record a guest mix on his inaugural Beats 1 show for Apple Music in 2015, and was one of a select band of artists to perform at Banksy's pop-up Bemusement Park, Dismaland. His eclectic series of How to Cut & Paste mixtapes offer a uniquely British take on hip-hop music and culture. DJ Yoda pioneered a new form of audio-visual entertainment, unifying hands-in-the-air clubbing with a night at the movies, chopping and splicing classic movies with the same exceptional style that he repurposes music samples. One of the first DJs to master the art of re-scoring classic films, in 2014 he was commissioned to create DJ Yoda Goes to the Sci-Fi Movies as part of the BFI's Sonic Cinema event. BBC Radio 6 Music gave him the platform to make history with the world's first audio-visual radio mix, and, as part of their BBC Music Day, Radio 4 invited Yoda to mash-up the entire station, remixing The Archers, The Shipping Forecast, John Humphries and more in one of his most sublime and surreal adventures yet.
