Make It Funky with DJ Yoda at Lee’s Palace

25 Apr

Calling Out Toronto’s Inner Funk,

This Saturday, April 28th, one of the highest praised DJs in the world will be gracing one of Toronto’s landmark venues for a show that will undoubtedly be an early highlight in Toronto’s summer schedule. DJ YODA- Who The Dickens Is He? DJ Yoda is one of Britain’s most admired and original DJs, having built a reputation as the only DJ to single-handedly inject humour into UK hip-hop. Admired for his originality as well as his sense of fun, he is possibly the only DJ in the world who can fill a club cutting George Formby with Jurassic 5, or 80′s pop with New York rap. Tipped by Q Magazine as one of ”The 10 DJs you must see before you die”, and voted alongside DJ Premier as “One of the Top Three DJs in the World” in Hip Hop Connection magazine, DJ Yoda is no ordinary scratch DJ. Born in London, Yoda represents a new brand of mix-master who will play any kind of music to make people dance – with a hip-hop set that can take the audience from underground rap to TV themes, to nursery rhymes, country, soul, reggae, drum and bass, 80′s pop and back again. In the last year alone, DJ Yoda has:

  • Played on the same bill as Steve Martin, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock at the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas
  • Headlined the Lake Of Stars Festival with Basement Jaxx in Malawi, Africa
  • Headlined at the Star Wars film premiere in front of George Lucas himself, at the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo
  • And a long and illustrious list of accomplishments that would please even the most authoritative Asian parents

The fact that his set also includes a hugely hyped visual component seals the deal. Not to mention the rest of the lineup includes hometown breakbeat hero Colin ‘Big League’ Chu and a plethora of other talent. If you’re Saturday hasn’t been booked yet, and even if it has (lets face it, your other plans pale in comparison) then you should head down to Lee’s Palace and have yourself a night of purebread epicality.
