Yushka has released his Track-list for his forthcoming broadcast on Scientific Sound Asia Radio, the premier underground radio station for Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Vietnam and South East Asia, this Friday the 4th of October, 4 to 6 PM Indochina time (ICT) and repeating Sunday 4-6 PM (ICT). Raised in Nottingham in the UK, Yushka has been practising his skills as a DJ at free parties, raves, festivals and club nights, around the UK, Ireland and more recently Vietnam since the mid 2000s.
A former founding member of Nottingham's What The Funk? DJ ensemble and the brains behind Nottingham's Shits and Giggles and Hot-Point Sound Systems. As a teenager he always had a vested interest in how music was put together and he loved making mix tapes, at the offset he had no way of funding any DJ equipment, but with access to basic software and a CD recorder he started making mixes to distribute at school, which gained him respect amongst his schoolmates as a DJ.
Accelerate to 2004 and at the tender age of 22 he finally got to perform on some real DJ Equipment. By 2006 he was doing weekly Sh!ts and GIggles Nottingham gigs in flashy bars and nightclubs around the underground scene of Nottingham, with co-host and founder Animinimal (Deck-starter/Catalyst). As the events continued it became apparent that they had to boost the hosting venues failing PA systems with their own and so Sh!ts and G!ggles sound system started.
This spread rapidly; and after an eternity listening to tunes with the now legendary Matty C (Hanoi Hi-Fi), Hotpoint Sound System of Nottingham was born. This led to all sorts of underground free parties and collaborations with Promoters across the East Midlands, Such as Substance D&B, Pure Filth, TSA303, Monkey Nuts and Psycle followed, bringing the classic multi genre nights and parties that Hotpoint and S&G became known for.
He has been a supporting act for Drum and Bass legends EZ Rollers and Kenny Ken and played in venues in Vietnam such as, Sidewalk Hanoi - Bar / Kitchen / Events (Hanoi) and Broma: Not a Bar, Arcan, Bann Bar, (HCMC). Anticipate anything, Chilled Laid Back Beats, Breaks, Hip Hop, Electro, Tech, D&B, all with a hint of Funk and Soul. Now a resident at Sunday Funk Sessions at Arcan in Ho Chi Minh City, expect to see a lot more of him in 2019 as a member of Scientific Sound Asia DJ Agency.
