Journalist, turntablist, VJ and recognised breakfast cereal aficionado, DJ Yoda is a man of many talents. From his early mail order Jew’s Paid tapes, through to his commercially available How to Cut & Paste series, he’s been big in the mix game for a hot minute.
His hip-hop skills, cheeky sense of humour and old skool philosophy that if it makes you dance, he’ll give it a chance, have gained him a reputation for sets filled with snap, crackle and pop.
Today he’s rightly regarded as one of the world’s finest visual DJs and takes his big screen setup around the globe to a captive audience. We don’t know if it’s seeing him scratch up Flight of the Conchords or cutting up Carlton’s dance from The Fresh Prince that makes us laugh most… Either way, we’re too busy boogying and eating Yoda-brand popcorn to care.
Oh, and when given the opportunity to live score a film, other DJs went all pretentious, and Yoda rocked The Goonies.
