Award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer DJ Yoda will play Dreamland Margate tomorrow (June 17) from 7pm.
The surprise gig on the outdoor Scenic Stage will be free to enter.
DJ Yoda is a multi-award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer, headlining festivals and clubs around the world. 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 one 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.
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.
He said: “. “I never liked the name DJ Yoda but it’s taken on a new significance. 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 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”.
