Idris Elba: DJ, kickboxing champ, oh yeah, and he acts

U.K. native Idris Elba is an actor, writer, producer, rapper, singer, songwriter and DJ. A closer look into the actor’s background reveals even more diversity, as Elba is a mashup of theatrical ingenue, physical athlete and passion-driven creative. Elba found his love for theater early on, winning a Prince’s Trust musical theater grant before age 20, he also worked as a wedding DJ, exhibited entrepreneurial skills starting his own company, and kept a night gig playing at clubs all while pursuing acting. Elba also was an avid kickboxing fan, and after a year of kickboxing and mixed marital arts training, he competed in and won a professional kickboxing match in London. We’ve watched Elba as the complicated Stringer Bell in “The Wire,” a flawed detective in “Luther,” an alcoholic war monk in Ghost Rider, Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, a serial killer in No Good Deed, and the voice of an animated sea lion in Pixar’s Finding Dory.

The Music Industry Has Neglected Its DJs. New Tech Will Change the Game

DJ edits of hit songs are everywhere, but the artists of the original music have not been properly compensated for the use of their works — until now. Whether you’re driving to the club, dancing at the club, or pounding tequila shots at your best friend’s wedding, carefully crafted tracks — parts of which have been sped up, slowed down, loudened for affect, and quieted for introductions and commentary — are soundtracking countless festivities and events. While original creators in these cases are supposed to be paid performance royalties (something that’s easier to police on the radio than at a wedding, for example) they do not earn per-play monies à la streaming. Why? An accessible, DJ-first platform with the appropriate, licensed music just doesn’t exist. On Thursday, August 5th, however, rookie company Beatsource is set to announce just that, thanks to just-finalized licensing deals with all three of the major label groups and multiple indies, Rolling Stone has learned.
