Biography

“Q-bert is universally acknowledged as the best scratcher in the world,” says DJ Yoda – AKA Duncan Beiny - undoubtedly also at the top of that field, “I remember cutting out this interview with Q-bert from an American rap magazine when I was 16 and sticking it on my wall because there was this quote where he said, ‘Just give me any record and I’ll flip it, ...

For those of you who don't know, DJ Yoda (aka Duncan Beiny) was exposed to the world after winning Diesel's music awards a couple of years back. After a couple of hip hop sorties (How to Cut and Paste 1&2, Unthugged with Dan Greenpeace), this album is a monument to the eighties.
For those unaccustomed to his previous mixes, well, they will leave you speechless. Some freak mutation of the eighties' kid's TV and music with rap. You can see the young Yoda trying to break out in his mixes and this album is just that.
Just a quick look at the tracklisting may make some of you wretch with the sweetest flavoured poptastic favourites reminiscent of days gone by when roller discos were cool (from Europe's Final Countdown to Culture Club and their Karma Chameleon). A couple of hip hop classics do find their way in the mix with Grandmaster Flash (The Message, White Lines) and Herbie Hancock's Rockit but the LP is not about that.
To listen to this mix you'll have to leave your ego at home if you think the eighties is a decade best left forgotten. It's not so much the choice of tracks that make this compilation what it is but the turntablism and samples that accompany it - DJ Yoda's trademark if you like.
In summary then this CD is like one of those old school block parties where someone brought the wrong crate of vinyl. Tracks that you would never imagine played to a crowd or mixed together somehow just seem to work. Like Marmite - love it or hate, but I can only recomment the former...

If you're unfamilar with DJ Yoda, this will be unlike anything you will have heard before. If you were a kid in the 80s like me you'll love it, it defines the era. It manages to combine 80s classic music and tv and film, scratching and mixing in Hill Street Blues, with exerpts from the Dallas, Aztec Camera, Salt 'n Pepa and even Rick Astley to name but a few. you're probably thinking this sounds like pure cheese but its pure genius...a classic! and will become compulsive listening. You know its a sign of a good album when its over before you know it ...and not because its not long enough.

I'm a big Yoda fan and bought this as soon as I knew it was out. As usual it contains what I'd expect of Yoda - eclectic mixes of tunes you'd not expect to hear together, weird samples from 80s programs etc.- but I can help but feel it was just a bit rushed in the making. By no means am I an expert on scratching or mixing, though I do listen to a lot (so this advice is in a back seat driver kind of way...) and all thought when listening to the album is that it seemed a bit hurried. If he'd just taken a bit more time to get the levels right, think more about some of the mixes and not use some of the same samples from his other albums I'd be a much happier customer.
Still, it's a great album. Definitely one to buy and it'll keep you amused for a while and remind you just how dodgy a lotof the 80s music really was!

So. You are a DJ and you decide to put together a cut and paste of music from the 1980's. You have to work within the parameters set by the record licensing department. And you want your mix to stand out, because you know that it was during the 1980's that the DJ culture of cutting, scratching and beatmatching that had been devloping from the late 1970's came to fruition, which means that many records from that period may well have already been subjected to a cut and paste assault (by the Disco Mix Club (DMC) for example). So you might choose to use records that are different, quirky, or just plain odd. Records which don't usually stand out when you think of a DJ. Then throw in a few choice over dubs and edits from assorted iconic films from the same period.

The question is, with such intent, does it work?

Well, to these ears, not quite. There are some moments of quite inspired mixing, and some nice transitions and blends (listen to the very simple use of 'Sign Your Name' ad the mix in to 'Take On Me' by A-Ha). But there are also a number of transitions which sound as if a DJ is struggling to come to work out how the equipment works (and it sounds as if this was mixed using CDJ's and a computer). The transition in to 'The Final Countdown' by Europe is a great example of this. It is an absolute train wreck of a mix. If this was a party you would grab the DJ by the neck and throw him off! If this was a gig you would demand your money back!

Somehow one suspects that Yoda hoped the sheer cheekiness of putting such a mix together would see him being forgiven for such mistakes, or maybe they were included as part of a clever commentary on the role of the DJ?
Perhaps he wanted to create a 'live' feel?

Whatever.

It's a fun album!

These days too many hip-hop artists and producers take themselves far too seriously so thank heavens for DJ Yoda!

And this is all about the 80s. There's classic 80s songs and samples of memorable 80s movies.

Don't expect musical revelations or outstanding "production values". Some of the scratching gets a bit intense for me otherwise I'd give it 5/5

This is a fun CD. The kind that makes you smile.

=)
