DJ WOODY live Dj / Av show
One of Mixmaster Mike's (Beastie Boys) favourite DJs, described as 'The best DJ in the World' by Hudson Mohawke, labelled a genius by DJ Qbert and referenced continually by the current crop of World Champion DJs as a major influence. It's safe to say that Woody may well be your favourite DJ's favourite DJ.
Known for his innovations, he helped design the Worlds first ever musical turntable instrument, the Vestax Controller One and is famed internationally as one of the most prolific pioneers of new scratch technique.
Collaborating with musicians from the start of his career proved to be very formative to Woody's musical approach to the turntable and has led to him being sought after by some of the industries most revered producers including Bomb The Bass, Madlib, Oli Teeba (The Herbaliser) and DJ Vadim. Performing as part of many bands, Woody was the DJ for Grammy winning hip hop superstar Mala Rodriguez, was part of Vadim's Russian Percussian and One Self (Ninja Tune) and has written scratch music for a 25 piece big band jazz orchestra.
In 2010 Woody extended his repertoire in the form of his ground breaking audio-visual DJ show, 'Turntables In Technicolor'. Designing and animating all the material himself, Woody immediately made his mark on the AV and DJ scene following jaw dropping showcase performances at the 2010 World DMC Finals and the US DMC Finals in New York. These performances led to DMC's decision to run the first ever Video DJ Championships. His current history of hip hop AV set is described by Jurassic 5's Cut Chemist as "The best video DJ set i've ever seen!". Creating his own niche he followed this show up with his 'Big Phat 90's' and 'Hip Hop is 40' live audio-visual DJ shows, with his current show described by Jurassic 5's Cut Chemist as "The best video DJ set i've ever seen!".
In the last 10 years Woody has played to festival crowds of up to 40,000 and performed in over 40 countries and we're excited to welcome him to Old Mans on his tour through Asia.
