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, ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Unthugged Review 1 Sep 2003
By Michael Jacobs VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I originally bought How to Cut and Paste Vol. 1 over a year ago; it was so unique that it took me a while to get to grips with it a really enjoy it. A few months back i spotted volume 2 in a hop and just had to buy it out of curiousity. Like all Yoda albums it took a while to get used to but after a couple of plays through I was loving that, it was a unique style.
So the questions I asked myself upon Stumbling on 'Unthugged' were 'Will he be the same with Dan Greenpeace?'... 'Is it really worth buying another of his albums?'
Well an abundance of money took over from common sense and I bought it anyway. Now, it has a more proffesional studio feel to it at first - which you could argue takes away Yoda's almost amateur touch; however, the talent and ideas are still there and it's just as wicked.
The actual tunes weren't quite as good or catchy as the ones on How to Cut and Paste 2, but there was still a good selection on there. But despite all of that, it's actually completely gangster and you will love it if you love this DJ. If you've never heard of him before, you'll love it, but I'd suggest you get How to Cut and Paste Volume 2 (by him) instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix master mate's 3 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first thing that hits you with Un-thugged is how obviously British it is.where as Yoda's mix tapes vol 1 and 2 had a very strong American feel to them.
From the opening sounds of the Avengers theme to Acker Bilk's Mister men and the who wants to be a millionaire (idiot) You're left in no doubt that this is home-grown.
Greenpeace and Yoda's turntable skills are highlighted brilliantly in the way they cut up the theme tune of (are you ready for this)........................... Emmerdale Farm, believe me this will be one of the funkiest breaks you've heard in an age. It also demonstrates their willingness to try everything and that it's not what you play it's how you play it.
The track selection for this mix is top notch. The superb Pazant Brothers:Chic-a-boom, Critically Acclaimed:Wallflower and gangster lean by Clipse. As usual there is a mega mix not Reggae this time but 80's Hip-Hop instead.
The title Un-thugged is an unusual one considering the content of this mix, You've got Ju Ju and Bloody Moon threatening to punch you in the face, Greenpeace and Yoda making fun of each others Skills and someone stating "Here Greenpeace you think your hard, you think your that Yoda don't ya" It could all be some kind of post-modern irony !!
This is a totally fantastic mix which is unafraid to take in many other genre's of music besides Hip-Hop. Ultimately you are left asking yourself how clever does someone have to be to make such a disparate bunch Songs sound so cohesive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cut ups at their best 8 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a definate mood change for Yoda, calling the LP un-thugged but including thuggish hip-hop (bloody moon)Also Greenpeace and yoda making fun of each others skills, must be post modern irony. However this is an excellent Mix Tape, listen to the cut up of the Emmerdale Farm theme tune and marvel as these two dj's transform it into one of the funkiest breaks you've ever heard. This is a must just for the Pazant Bros "chick a boom"
If you loved Yoda's Vol 1 - vol 2 mix tapes, this is the logical progression and also a bit of departure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why you need this album 20 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow - where to start? This album is so cramed full of good stuff it's hard know where to begin - from the Sublime Meat shake by Ugly Duckling to the Demigodz - The Demigodz (a hip hop remix of the muppets 'menum a num' song) its all great! Although its not all comedy - of particular worth is Ju ju's punch you in the face. Basically if you liked how to cut and paste 1 and 2, you need this album - It's worth the asking price for the Jive Dunny's B-Boy old school mix alone!
Good job!
