We welcome the amazing DJ Yoda to our rave bunker tomorrow night . Not much needs to be said about Duncan Beiny but here goes….
DJ Yoda is no ordinary scratch DJ. His seminal ‘How to Cut & Paste’ series showcased a tongue-in-cheek mixing style that prompted Q Magazine to declare him “one of the ten DJs to see before you die”, whilst Hip-Hop Connection voted him “one of the top three DJs in the world”.
The best way we can describe him is it’s like watching a music video, a scratch DJ and comedian all at the same time.
He has a knack for turning rooms full of perfectly calm and civilised people into a heaving mass of happy, sweaty, partied-out folk. Combining a well-honed beat-heavy DJ set with tongue in cheek visuals mixed live with the music on a cinema-sized screen, DJ Yoda assaults your senses with a killer combination of good humour and infectious party music. Unbeatable in this terrain.
He brings his old school hip-hop AV show to Gorilla. Expect all your favourite golden era videos cut and scratched to within an inch of their life.
Support comes from the Juicy DJs aka the pantydroppers aka kings of the party hip hop jams in Manchester.
After his sellout show at the RItz, Bonobo will be crossing the road and playing a DJ set at Gorilla. Support comes from Johnny Dub (Hoya Hoya) and Neil (El Diablos Social Club)
Tickets are priced at £7

Bad news folks..Due to overwhelming interest in the Unknown Mortal Orchestra show on November 8th, we have sadly had to upgrade the show to Academy 2. All tickets are still valid.
This Friday we present the might Butch! Brute name, versatile sound: Over 100 releases in 5 years have enabled BUTCH to express this versatility and brute-fully force his way to becoming a shaping artist in the worldwide landscape of electronic music.
Honestly this success comes as no surprise, anyone who manages to release on the labels of artists such as Ricard Villalobos (Sei es Drum), Sven Väth (Cocoon) and Radioslave (Rekids) within a year and gets voted “producer of the year” (2010 & 2011) by the GROOVE magazine readers for two consecutive years, has doubtlessly worked his way up to the small circle of artists, which pack the most renowned clubs and festivals as headliners.
Support comes from David Glass (Circus/ Magnetic/ Robsoul) & Mute! DJs
Tickets: £10, MOTD
