Restoring the over-cited genre of ‘mash-up’ to its full glory, London DJ Jaguar Skills is a skilled craftsman in the art of electronic cutting and pasting.

Proving his worth live at Jade Jagger’s Jezebel night in Ibiza, Skills was soon playing in clubs worldwide. Appealing to the nation’s deteriorating attention span, his weekly ten minute mixes on the Trevor Nelson Show – as well as his mixtapes on Radio 1 and 1xtra – are a bullet of sheer electronic joy, expertly mixing DJ Yoda’s cartoon comedy with sharp cuts of dubstep, electro, house, breaks and R&B. His celebrated hour-long 30 Years Of Hip Hop mix in 2009 contained 538 tracks, charting the entire history of hip hop, whilst his latest mix, commemorating 20 years of Pete Tong by mashing together 50 of the best dance tracks from the past 20 years, is available to download now from the Radio One site.

Performing onstage in a ninja mask, join Jaguar Skills and an array of DJ friends as they descend upon The Arches for a night of impressive turntablism and an eclectic mash-up of huge party tunes, from old school house to 90s rave, TV theme tunes and hip hop classics. And, of course, the trademark shout greeting him from the crowd: HooooOOOOOO!

Support comes from Noface and DJ Jean-Marc.
