"how to Cut and Paste" Volumes One and Two Saw DJ Yoda Draw Influences as Diverse as Reggae, Electro, Funk, Hip Hop, the a Team Theme and George Formby, but the Biggest Reaction from Fans was to his Now Classic "80's Pop Megamix". Now Yoda Extends the 80's Idea to a Whole Mix - with Rock and Pop Records Ranging from the Respectable (Blondie) to the Completely Cheesy (Rick Astley) from the 1980's Sitting Surprisingly Comfortable in Between Hip-hop Hits from the Same Era.
Choppy flow, a little too much swearing, but very nostalgic

"Bought this one on a whim ... it's not too bad, but ... DJ Yoda tries to interject a lot of samples, and they sometimes interrupt the flow of the music. Too many cuss words in his samples, too (but then again, I listen along with a 3 year-old-girl, so ... )However, it does take you back to the 80s with the different movie samples ... the most used being stuff from "Ferris Beuller's Day Off." You might not think it's the greatest at first listen, but the cd does grow on you.I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 because, at the start of the "Rise to the Occassion" song, a movie sample says "Go**amn!" and I SWEAR it's Chris Tucker's "Smokey" character from "Friday", which is, what, from 1995? Sorry to be a purist, but it said cut and paste from the 80s, not 1995."

"bought this on a whim also due to the interesting playlist but dj yoda does not have the force working with him on this one. way too much 'wicky wicky' and stupid samples cause a headache and ruin the flow. this was supposed to be a highlight of our upcoming 80's house party but its back to the store for me....."
Awesome Turntables - Not for scratch haters

"It is a quality composition but not for those who do not appreciate turntablism. The selected tracks really do stink of 80's nostalgia, but Yoda rips them up into something new and funky.
Definitely a CD that I am always sticking on for a laugh and serious beats but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that religiously loves the tracks on the album, because they get picked apart like a corpse by a vulture.
If you like Yoda's other work, this fits like a glove."
