For this edition we welcome eminent science journalist Zoe Cormier from Guerilla Science. She has no idea what she is in for. This is our attempt at a science podcast – Kier tells us about when he was saw the Northern Lights in Brighton (and no one believes him), Amar is feeling Low but is soon enlightened with the news [..]
DJ Yoda can cut and paste faster than you can say obiwankenobi and was instrumental in creating a ‘cut-up’ mixing style. Not content with your average beats and rhythms, Yoda likes to take things to the next level, interspersing movie, TV and YouTube samples into his songs.
His latest tour The Wonderful World of DJ Yoda, is an audiovisual extravaganza at which he DJs both video and audio. The clips vary from old commercials to cartoons to Yoda’s favourite movies and YouTube clips, which are then mixed in time with the music.
A veteran on the festival circuit, Yoda has played all over the world from China to Brazil to Australia, and performed alongside Amy Winehouse, Fatboy Slim, Mark Ronson and with Lily Allen. He also famously played on the same bill as Steve Martin, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock at the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas.
We’re lucky enough to DJ with the original musical Jedi for one night and we are beyond excited, especially considering he has been voted one of ten DJs to see before you die by Q Magazine, and even more notably Hip Hop Connection voted him as one of the top three DJs in the world. What better a place to see this legendary mix-master than Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes? An intimate venue peppered with as many influences as Yoda himself.
Also on the bill is the founder of the amazing Mixcloud, the internet service that we all know and love that has pioneered sharing music. DJ Sketchy will be showing us his mixing skills and no doubt wowing us with some tracks he has found via the Mixcloud vaults.
