Coming to a students’ union near you.
Turntablist DJ Yoda has made a ‘tribute mix’ for one of the year’s best TV series, Stranger Things.
Imbuing Stranger Things’ woozy Carpenter-esque synth score with scratching and vocal samples taken from his Star Wars namesake, the mix threads together tracks featured in and inspired by the ‘80s-set show, including Toto’s ‘Africa’ and The Clash’s ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’.
Joy Division, Dolly Parton, Jefferson Airplane and Vangelis all make an appearance, along with Tangerine Dream’s retrowave touchstone ‘Beach Theme’ and a clutch of Carpenter soundtracks, including Escape From New York – all bona fide golden oldies. Listen to the mix below.
