WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Duncan Beiny aka DJ Yoda is no ordinary scratch DJ. His seminal How To Cut & Paste series showcased a tongue-in-cheek mixing style that prompted Q Magazine to declare him "one of the ten DJs to see before you die", whilst Hip Hop Connection voted him "one of the top three DJs in the world". Trail-blazing into the world of the audio-visual he has pioneered a new artform using cutting edge technology that he has been instrumental in developing to scratch and mix visuals on top of his DJ sets. Drawing from sources as diverse as classic movies, obscure television shows, or viral Youtube clips, you can find him cutting up the Indiana Jones theme tune to full on dubstep, or dicing and splicing the Muppet Theme with classic Hip Hop in amongst the inimitable audiovisual whirlwind that is DJ Yoda.
Always one to experiment, part of DJ Yoda's show will feature a live collaboration with Balkan Brass group The Trans-Siberian March Band, a thirteen piece brass band bringing together the finest elements of Balkan Ska and Ottoman battle-punk. Updated for 2014 this will showcase the weird and wonderful combination of beats and brass that has played at Glastonbury,The Roundhouse, Bestival, Kendall Calling, Shambala and numerous other festivals over the last three years.
