A great album by DJ Yoda that takes classic samples from movie & TV, incorporates them within a framework of Hip Hop styles to create a distinctive sound that is only DJ Yoda...total genius!!!

After forging a reputation for turntable tomfoolery with his now-legendary How To Cut And Paste mix tapes, DJ Yoda has finally decided to move into the world of proper recording artists.

Two years in the making and highly anticipated, Yoda has teamed up with guest vocalists such as The Jungle Brothers, Biz Markie, Sway, Princess Superstar, Ugly Duckling, MC Paul Barman and Aspects to create an album that retains all the humour and entertainment of his regular DJ mixes.

Of the instrumentals, Wheels, the first single to be released from the album, stands out as insanely catchy, and as vibrant and colourful as the sleeve that houses it. Elsewhere, Tiptoe is a bizarre blend of old-English hippy-folk music, an ancient exercise video and scratching. It sits just on the right side of the line marked `annoying'.

As enjoyable as the instrumentals are, it's as a backing for other artists' rhymes that Yoda really excels. Biz Markie turns up and spits a couple of tuneless but ultimately charming verses on Breakfast Cereal and Haunted House. As the forefather of humorous hip hop, the marriage of the Biz and DJ Yoda is one made in heaven. Later, Bristol-based rap concern, Aspects, turn up on The Brush-Off and Ugly Duckling's Andy Cooper takes the mic on Holdin' Down The Block. Sway clearly relishes his opportunity to rap on Chatterbox.

Showcasing Yoda's colossal skills as a DJ and as a producer, without losing the sense of humour that has brought him such acclaim, The Amazing Adventures can only be considered a triumph.

He's one of my favourite DJ's, and this album is unmistakeably him. 80's samples and fat hiphop come together to make a real fast ride. If you've ever caught him live, you'll know what to expect.

Maintaining the High Standard of Yodas previous exploits in the cut & paste series. Some great collaberations on this album, the best of which has to be a shout out from the man him self David Dickenson, LEGENDARY!

Also, some cool stuff with the Jungle Brothers, Sway, Andy Cooper &

Biz Markie rapping about cereal (cooler than you would think).

Some more seriously delightful scratching & sampling from DJ YODA.

Another must have album. Add it to your collection.
