Get Involved Mix #1 – DJ Yoda

The weekend is nearly upon us, and here is a little treat from DJ Yoda to get it off to a thumping start.

Yoda is one of Get Involved’s increasingly varied and exciting ‘talents’. The DJ extraordinaire has taken the art of playing records to the next level with innovative AV sets which see him manipulate video as well as sound with his fingertips.

Having recently completed his ‘Stop, Look & Listen Tour’, which took in the biggest screen of them all – the BFI IMAX – and an album due out in 2011, we are delighted to be able to call him one of our own.

For more info on Yoda visit his site, and enjoy the mix below.

Merry Christmas!!

With the chocolates in the Get Involved advent calendar down to single figures, and our latest Spotify playlist featuring everyone from The Pogues and Frank Sinatra to East 17 being rinsed, the seasonal vibe is thriving amongst the GI Crew.

With sleigh bells ringing and mulled wine warming, our Christmas Party was a great way to wrap up the year- and actor/comedian extraordinaire Mat Horne from Gavin and Stacey even turned up to be our festive quiz master.

This year has been another fantastic year, particularly at the UK Festival Awards. Our very own Bestival took home the top prize of Best Major Festival while Camp Bestival won Best Family Festival – woo hoo! Equally, a big well done to our clients, RockNess and Snowbombing, who took home Best Line Up and Best European Festival respectively – well deserved wins!!

Also in the past month, we have launched the Shockwaves NME Awards Shows and Tours featuring the likes of Crystal Castles and Magnetic Man through to Carl Barat, Warpaint and Caribou, as well as the line-up for Bestival 2011 which we are ecstatic to announce will be headlined by none-other than The Cure. Joining them will be Brian Wilson, Primal Scream presents Screamadelica Live and Magnetic Man amongst some other belters, and plenty more to be announced very soon.

We have worked with some amazing people this year – that’s you folks! – and we would like to say a massive THANKS to you all. We couldn’t have done it without you so thanks for all the support.

So just before we head off for some festive cheer, we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Scroll down for some of the other stuff we have been up to in the last month, click Read More to check out our shiny new website, and stay in touch because we have some incredibly special stuff lined up for 2011!
