Style: Hip Hop, Dubstep, Mash Up, Funk, Elektro

 

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”.


Style in 5 words:
Diverse, Visual, non-serious, Hip-Hop DJ

Genres that struck me first:
Rap and pop

Most influential artists:
Too many to mention! Could start with Q-Bert, Biz Markie and The Coen Brothers.

Wheels

What makes a DJ a DJ?
Bringing something to a party that can’t be provided by iTunes shuffle. 

My favourite embarrassing tune:
I don’t believe in embarassing tunes – you should be proud of what you love!

Weirdest thing that happened on tour:
Again – so many to choose from. Playing to a naked crowd in Canada was weird.

MP3 – VINYL: Why?
Whatever works for you as a DJ to do something cool and creative – I’ve used both. 

Shouts to the clubs & promoters
Big shout to anyone not conforming to boring, soul-less EDM!
