Friday 3rd June - Madame Wong's House of Wrong
DJ 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 half 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.
His latest project ‘Home Cooking’ is the new, mature sound of DJ Yoda. Maximising the experience and enjoyment gained from recording live instruments and prioritising songs over beats for his previous two albums ‘Breakfast of Champions’ and ‘Chop Suey’, it is a big step for the cut-and- paster as a producer, having wowed the world over for close to two decades with his celebrated turntable tomfoolery.
