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.
