“The pioneer of the bootleg ‘cut-up’ mixing style, DJ Yoda, takes to the 6 Mix for two hours of turntable trickery with a special visual show that you can listen to on 6 Music or watch live via Red Button and the 6 Music website.
Duncan Beiny aka DJ Yoda is not just a scratch DJ. His seminal ‘How To Cut & Paste’ series showcased a tongue-in-cheek mixing style. From releasing his debut album, ‘The Amazing Adventures Of DJ Yoda’ in 2006, he has also released five instalments of his ‘How To Cut and Paste’ mix CD series, the first of which came out in 2001. Alongside these, his latest artist album ‘Chop Suey’ came out at the end of last year.
With influences that range from Funk, Reggae and Drum ‘n’ Bass to Big Band Swing and Country & Western, and having played alongside artists such as Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and Fatboy Slim this 2 hours of samples and scratching has the potential to be very varied indeed!
In this programme, DJ Yoda will be talking to Nemone about some of his hip hop and video influences, performing a live visual set and will also premiering his new How To Cut & Paste mix. All of the action will be unfolding live on Red Button, online at the 6 Music website and on the radio. DJ Yoda will also be tweeting along during the show so, to get involved, tweet @BBC6Music and hashtag #Yoda6Mix.”
