Not only does this guy create cool mixtapes club sets and has the great How To Cut and Paste series, featuring killer mixes of jazz, 80s tunes, country'n'western - his production albums shine too; amalgams of pop, hip-hop and dance ideas.
And he is very much the showman - a scratch DJ with tricks and gimmicks to wow and please, he also performs with spliced and diced video footage, TV shows, film and YouTube clips; there's something for everyone in a show that has seen him raved about by Q magazine as one of the ten must-see DJs in the world.
I was sold back when his How To Cut & Paste: The 80s was a highlight of many a party back in our old house. That's what got me hooked on DJ Yoda. I've loved his mix for the Fabric series and the recent Cut & Paste instalments as well as his albums The Amazing Adventures of DJ Yoda (2006) and Chop Suey (2012).
He's playing a few shows around the country but I have two tickets to giveaway to Friday night's Wellington show. A very special treat I reckon. I'm very pleased to be able to offer them - so my thanks must go to Dash Tickets and The San Francisco Bath House.
Now who would like to win a double pass to see (and hear) DJ Yoda in action this Friday night?
There's support from lots of great locals - including another who features on my list of ten favourite DJs: Alphabethead.
To be in to win a double pass just tell me below why you'd like to win. But answer in Yoda-speak you must. (Or OSV - Object-subject-verb).
So I want to know - in your best Yoda-speak - why I should give two tickets to DJ Yoda to you for Friday night's sure-to-be-mind-blowing AV set.
