One of Mixmaster Mike’s (Beastie Boys) favourite DJs, described as ‘The best DJ in the World’ by Hudson Mohawke, labelled a genius by DJ Qbert. 2 Times World Champion DJ, Woody is arguably one of the UK’s most influential turntablists. Known for his innovations, he helped design the Worlds first ever musical turntable instrument (Vestax Controller One) and is famed as a prolific pioneer of new scratch techniques.
Woody’s musical approach to the turntable and has led to mixtapes and recordings for labels including NinjaTunes, BBE, Jazz Fudge, Tokyo Dawn, Chopped Hearing, Passenger, Twisted Nerve & Jack 2 Phono Records.
Known worldwide as a DJ & turntablist, Mr Thing is a name synonymous with Hip-Hop that always brings a smile to the faces of fans and promoters alike as they remember genius performances of impeccable skill. First touching the tables in 1987 he has been non-stop perfecting his art since and is now one of the worlds best. Touring the world with an understanding of records and music that is second to none, he always creates flawless and exciting sets mixing some of the rarest records with some of the best loved records ever heard with an apparently effortless ease honed after years of practice.
He has won DJ battles, both solo and as part of the Scratch Perverts, has a production discography that is the envy of most. He is responsible for some of the most perfect mixtapes & for a string of BBE released compilations including the creatively titled “STRANGE BREAKS & MR THING” and of course the rightly titled “KINGS OF HIP HOP” with DJ Premier.
