Yushka has released his playlist for his upcoming show on Scientific Sound Asia Radio, the premier Asian underground radio station for South East Asia, this Friday the 17th of May, 4 to 6 PM Indochina time (ICT) and repeating Sunday the 19th of May, 4-6 PM (ICT). Originally from Nottingham in the UK, Yushka has been DJing at free parties, raves, festivals and club nights, around the UK, Ireland and more recently Vietnam since the mid 2000s. A former member of Nottingham's What The Funk? DJ collective and the driving force behind Nottingham's Shits and Giggles and Hot-Point Sound Systems. As a teenager he always had a keen interest in how music was produced and performing mixes, not in a financial situation to buy decks, but with access to a very basic software and a CDR he started making mixes to distribute around his circle of friends at school, which gained him notoriety in the playground.
Fast Forward to 2004 and at the ripe old age of 22 he finally got a practice on some real turntables. By 2006 he was running weekly Sh!ts and GIggles Nottingham events in drinking establishments and clubs around the city, with co-host and founder Animinimal (Deck-starter/Catalyst). As the events went on it became apparent that they needed to boost the hosting venues sound systems with their own and so Sh!ts and G!ggles sound system was born.
This rapidly evolved; and after a long night listening to some tunes with the now legendary Matty C (Hanoi Hi-Fi), Hotpoint Sound System of Nottingham was founded. This led to all sorts of Freeparty high-spirited behavior. Collaborations with Nights 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 (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), expect to see a lot more of him in and around Asia in 2019.
