DJ Yoda - How to Cut & Paste: The Thirties Edition
DJ Yoda, turntable master known for his earlier `Cut n` Paste` releases, has released his newest in the `Cut n` Paste` series `The Thirties Edition`. DJ Yoda seamlessly puts breakbeats, drum n bass and scratches underneath these classic songs and movie samples and has created a mix that is entertaining from start to finish.
The album is full of sampled tunes such as `Vera Ward Hall`s Trouble So Hard` and `Sometimes` by Bessie Jones (Moby used both on Natural Blues and Honey respectively), Moondog’s ‘Lament 1, Bird’s Lament’ (the original sample from Mr Scruff’s ‘Get a Move On’) as well as Thelonious Monk’s ‘Black and Tan Fantasy’ (Wu-Tang Clan`s ‘Shame On A Nigga’ sampled this). The album includes tracks from Harry McClintock, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway and many more.
This is not as engaging as some of his earlier mixes (like How to Cut and Paste Mix Tape Vol.2 and FabricLive 39) due to the fact that he plays it safe with a lot of the tunes and music he uses to throw underneath the tracks. That said, this is still a great addition to an already great series (I prefer this mix to the Country & Western Edition) . DJ Yoda does it again. Can you dig it?
