Many of you know Idris Elba for his many roles as an actor – he was Stringer Bell on The Wire, he’s Luther, and has been in a number of other TV and movies during his time as an actor (including playing Nelson Mandela). Many don’t know that this British star is also a DJ, and has a nice ear for dance music. He recently dropped the first volume of his Look With Your Ears series, and he has a solid handle on today’s UK house scene. Hannah Wants, Gorgon City, and Shadow Child get thrown up against Chromeo, AC Slater, Wayward, and plenty others. If you know about his work as a DJ, this shouldn’t be surprised, but we have a feeling some of you will be tripping over Stringer Bell behind the decks. Let the man work.
