DJ MASEO ( De La Soul)
Producer / DJ / part-time MC Vincent Mason a.k.a Maseo a.k.a Plug 3 from iconic Hip-Hop group De La Soul quietly maintains a key spot in Hip-Hop history.
De La Soul burst onto the scene and innovated hip-hop by colouring outside the lines, sampling a diverse array of untouched, previously unsampled artists such as The Turtles, Hall & Oates, and Steely Dan on their critically acclaimed debut '3 Feet High & Rising.'
They have been a catalyst for other important acts in hip-hop history as they helped introduce to world to Mos Def, helped propel a Tribe Called Quest with 'Buddy', and were among the first major acts to work with deceased hip-hop icon J-Dilla on a major single (when he was known as Jay Dee).
De La is perhaps the 'oldest' functioning Hip-Hop group to still truly maintain credibility while not having 'fell off' as they continue to stay relevant collaborating with Snoop Dogg, 2 Chainz, MF Doom, Ghostface Killah, Roc Marciano and Madlib among others.
Their 'downtime' music release within the gap of their their most recent albums (2003 and 2016) was also innovative; put out by Nike, who also released a De La Soul limited edition Dunk sneaker which sold out at retail immediately and can now be found on Ebay for upwards of $500.
Their biggest song to date came from left field somewhat: Damon Albarn from Blur was such a fan that he enlisted De La to participate on his 2nd Gorillaz album which gave birth to 'Feel Good Inc' - the biggest single ever for both De La and Gorillaz. The track was featured on a massive Ipod worldwide TV campaign and won both acts a Grammy the same night as their ensemble Grammy performance which also included Madonna. De La toured with Gorillaz worldwide where Damon would have entire stadiums chant Maseo.
DJ Yoda is a multi-award winning hip-hop DJ and producers headlining festivals and clubs around the world.
No typical club DJ, his interest lie in finding fresh and unique ways to bring turntables out of the club and getting involved in bespoke collaborations.
Working with classical composers to neuroscientists, brass bands to film directors, Dr Dre to Dame Evelyn Glennie, Banksy to Mark Ronson, BBC Radio 4 ti BFI, He reinvigorates his craft with wry invention and humourous intent.
Music Genres: Breaks, Electro, Funk, Hip Hop, Soul
