Breakfast Of Champions is DJ Yoda's first live band. Produced, curated and performed by DJ Yoda, it features vocalists Sparks and Truthos Mufasa from Manchester collective Mouse Outfit, Shlomo and breakthrough act Rex Domino.
Commissioned by Wall of Sounds as part of their Artistic Director Series 2014, Breakfast Of Champions will become a collaboration of musicians, percussionists, animators, visual artists and vocalists from across the UK. This new project sees DJ Yoda applying his cut & paste and audio-visual aesthetic to a 5 day artistic residency and a live performance.
DJ Yoda - "This is a new arena for me, I've done loads of collaborations but I've never actually tried to put together a band, so I jumped at this opportunity. I'm talent-spotting right now, and see this as a chance to initiate music careers, as well as to realise my vision of a live hip-hop band. I want Breakfast of Champions to be the start of a real collective."
Breakfast of Champions will premiere live at Manchester's famous Band on the Wall on 19th September. A London date will follow at Camden's Jazz cafe on8th November with more dates to be announced. An exclusive EP is available on pre-order via Pledge Music.
