McQueen presents the legendary turntablist DJ Yoda on Friday 31st March.

DJ Yoda is a multi-award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer, headlining festivals and clubs around the world. No typical club DJ, his interests lie in finding fresh and unique ways to bring turntables out of the club and getting involved in bespoke collaborations. Working with classical composers to neuroscientists; brass bands to film directors; Dr Dre to Dame Evelyn Glennie; Banksy to Mark Ronson; BBC Radio 4 to the BFI, he reinvigorates his craft with wry invention and humorous intent.

Internationally respected for his turntablism, the viral success of his Stranger Things Mix racked up more than a quarter million plays on Soundcloud, culminating in his UK Tour of Stranger Things The Mixtape Live. He was Dr Dre’s first choice to record a guest mix on his inaugural Beats 1 show for Apple Music in 2015, and was one of a select band of artists to perform at Banksy’s pop-up Bemusement Park, Dismaland. His eclectic series of How to Cut & Paste mixtapes offer a uniquely British take on hip-hop music and culture.

DJ Yoda pioneered a new form of audio-visual entertainment, unifying hands-in-the-air clubbing with a night at the movies, chopping and splicing classic movies with the same exceptional style that he repurposes music samples. One of the first DJs to master the art of re-scoring classic films, in 2014 he was commissioned to create DJ Yoda Goes to the Sci-Fi Movies as part of the BFI’s Sonic Cinema event. BBC Radio 6 Music gave him the platform to make history with the world’s first audio-visual radio mix, and, as part of their BBC Music Day, Radio 4 invited Yoda to mash-up the entire station, remixing The Archers, The Shipping Forecast, John Humphries and more in one of his most sublime and surreal adventures yet.

Ever pushing the boundaries of live audio-visual performance his latest journey into popular culture - DJ Yoda: A History of Gaming - premiered at the London Film Festival on the UK’s largest screen at the prestigious IMAX, charting best loved and most fondly remembered games from the early 1980s to the present. With new studio projects, experimental audio-visual ventures, and his ever-evolving DJ sets taking in a diverse array of styles, genres, decades and continents, things couldn’t be going better for DJ Yoda, and he’s even got used to that name. “I never liked the name DJ Yoda”, he admits. “But here we are now in 2016 and it’s taken on a new significance”. He surveys the DJ scene and considers himself the Last Man Standing. “Because Yoda was the last old master of the craft of being a Jedi where no one else around him is using those original skills”, he furthers. “Suddenly that name has an extra relevance. I turn up to DJ somewhere with my records and turntables and I'm scratching and quick-mixing... And people I see around me DJ-ing don't do that”.

Long may he continue to be the lone original DJ.
