DJ Yoda - How To Cut and Paste The Thirties Edition
(CD) Unthugged UTD007, 2009-08-17

Responsible for spreading his name across the globe, DJ Yoda's How To Cut & Paste mixes have become the stuff of legend. Injecting a necessary dose of humour into the UK's Hip-Hop scene without ever taking his eye off the dancefloor, 's unique ability to mix and scratch theme tunes, adverts and comedy skits with some of the rawest beats around, gaining both commercial and critical success, is without equal. Following hot on the heels of his barnstorming Country & Western Edition, the fifth instalment in the series delves deep into the past, to the advent of Swing for The Thirties Edition. The decade that gave the world the first LP, the first 'All-Talking All-Colour' wide-screen movie and the Zoot suit, the 1930s was a hotbed of musical creativity that DJ Yoda has mined with his trademark ear for a funky beat turning up some surprising musical treats.

Press Release :
Kicking off with a heavy dose of turntable trickery before dropping into Danny Kaye's appositely titled "Beatin' Bangin' Scratchin'' Yoda gets busy on the ones and twos traversing the era's gems, mixing stone cold classics of the time with tracks you didn't know you knew and some real digger's delights. Underpinned with crushing 808s, slick breaks and a dazzling array of vocal samples, the latest edition of How To Cut & Paste brings each and every track bang up to date, mixing up the Hip-Hop, Dubstep, B-More and Drum n Bass beats, catapulting the likes of 'The Professor' Benny Goodman, 'The Hi De Ho Man' Cab Calloway and the legendary 'Satchmo' Louis Armstrong into the here and now without losing any of the original magic that made them the heroes of their day. As adventurous as always, he doesn't limit himself to the kings of swing, flexing his deft deck manoeuvres with tracks from bebop don Thelonious Monk, Delta Blues' most famous son Robert Johnson, Jazz pianist Jeri Southern and Calypso singer Cecil Anderson The Duke of Iron.
