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...
Oh and I love the shout outs by Timmy Mallet and Pat Sharp, awesome.
And it is fun. That is all. Read more
