Suckers we wet to the sound of the dope piano...
Voted by Q Magazine as one of "The Top 10 DJs You Must See Before You Die", DJ Yoda is globally renowned for his genre-bending club sets, award-winning radio mixes and technology-pushing audio visual shows.
But "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." he was producing mixtapes on Four Track Cassette Recorders and independently releasing them through record shops from London to Bristol to Leeds to Royal Leamington Spa! This was a favourite (even using one of my records!) taking in the mood evoking, piano based hip hop productions of the time from the likes of DJ Premier. Even at this stage you can hear his signature style of mixing contemporary hip hop with movie dialogue, comedy samples and turntable sketches...
