DJ Yoda - How To Cut & Paste: The 30s Edition (2009)

I have been listening to Dj Yoda since his first 'How to cut & paste' mixtapes, that I highly recommend (check out Vol1 and Vol2 if you're not familiar). He has always been weirdish. This 30s edition goes one step further into Dj Yoda's abilities to mix the most unexpected tunes with brilliant consistency.
‘The 30s Edition’ is more bearable than ‘The 80s Edition’ (which was still dope) and it’s a real light listen, especially if you want to have a bit a laugh at the sort of jaunty music they used to make. Yoda makes for additional comedy as he scratches samples and drops ridiculous beats over the original tracks.
Stand-out selections are
‘Cheesecake’ by Louis Armstrong (pure hilarity) and Moondog’s ‘Lament 1, Bird’s Lament’ (the original sample from Mr Scruff’s ‘Get a Move On’). Speaking of sample sources, Thelonious Monk’s ‘Black and Tan Fantasy’ (of Wu-Tang Clan's ‘Shame On A Nigga’) fame also crops up. You’ll also enjoy the one-two combo of Fats Waller’s ‘Reefer Song’ and Cab Calloway’s ‘Reefer Man’ for the possibly unintentional drug references, or originals tunes that Moby or the Fugees have been sampling in the past.

Kid Koala DJ Set @ Kset (Bootleg 2005)

The live you will download below is a never released bootleg from Kid Koala's first visit to Zagreb, Croatia, in a small student union for croatian nerds (KSET).
The mix features excellent Kid Koala Dj skills, mixing various tunes including Bjork, White Stripes, A Tribe Called Quest, Cure, Slayer, his own drunk trumpet solo scratches, Deltron 3030, and some weird random tunes. Great mix. The playlist is really cool, but I didnt have energy nor knowledge to write the whole thing down. The mix is already 5 years old but hey, good music never dies! The quality of the sound is decent too.
Give it a hear on the Soundcloud player below, and if you like it, go for the whole mix with the Rapidshare Download. Enjoy my second personal upload and real contribution to the music scene on the net. Hope you like my artwork too :)
