Yushka releases playlist for upcoming show.

Yushka Djing on CDJs

Yushka's second episode aired on Friday, May 17th, 2019. You may listen to it using the Mixcloud player below. Scientific Sound Asia Radio is the leading Asian electronic music radio station and DJ agency in Southeast Asia and globally.

Yushka, originally from Nottingham, UK, has been DJing at free parties, raves, festivals, and club nights in the UK, Ireland, and, most recently, Vietnam since the mid-2000s. A former member of Nottingham's What The Funk? DJ collective who founded Shits and Giggles and Hot-Point Sound Systems.

As a youngster, he was always interested in how music was made and performing mixes, but he didn't have the money to acquire decks. But, with access to very rudimentary software and a CDR, he began crafting mixes to share with his school pals, earning him renown on the playground.

In 2004, at the advanced age of 22, he eventually had the opportunity to rehearse with actual turntables. By 2006, he and co-host Animinimal (Deck-starter/Catalyst), the originator, were hosting weekly Sh!ts and GIggles Nottingham events in bars and clubs all around the city.

As the events progressed, it became clear that they needed to supplement the hosting venues' sound systems with their own, therefore the Sh!ts and G!ggles sound system was formed.

This quickly evolved, and after a long night listening to music with the now-legendary Matty C (Hanoi Hi-Fi), the Hotpoint Sound System of Nottingham was created. This resulted in a variety of Freeparty high-spirited behaviour.

Collaborations with Nights in the East Midlands, including Substance D&B, Pure Filth, TSA303, Monkey Nuts, and Psycle, followed. This restores the old multi-genre nights and parties that Hotpoint and S&G were known for.

He has supported Drum and Bass legends EZ Rollers and Kenny Ken and has performed in Vietnam at venues such as Sidewalk Hanoi - Bar / Kitchen / Events (Hanoi) and Broma: Not a Bar, Arcan, Bann Bar (HCMC). Anticipate anything from chilled laid-back beats to breaks, hip hop, electro, tech, and D&B, all with a dash of funk and soul.

He is now a resident of Arcan's Sunday Funk Sessions in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. You should expect to see a lot more of him in and around Asia in 2019.
