Idris Elba Is Tearing Up Music Festivals As A House DJ

Idris Elba - Luther, The Wire, that tiger from The Jungle Book. And of course the most suited man to be the next James Bond (although it's likely not to happen because heaven forbid James Bond not be a white man).

But when he's not swanning around in a suit looking more dapper than anyone you know, he's swanning around Europe tearing up festivals as a House DJ.

This isn't particularly new news, he' been doing it for a number of years but for those who didn't know, now you do.

This isn't actually that surprising, Elba is a well connected and multi-talented man. Just last year he released a rework of Skepta's smash 'Shutdown'.

As for where you can catch the man on the decks, well he was due to play Glastonbury last weekend but had to pull out last minute (insert Boris Johnson gag) due to filming commitments. He released this video apologising for the unfortunate last minute cancellation.

He did in fact play the festival last year and he has, in the past, even had an Ibiza residency.

Currently he's launching a new musical project under the moniker 'Hiatus'. The first cut titled 'Spectacle' features Idris on vocal duties himself and can be streamed below via SoundCloud.

Elba's personal SoundCloud page features a whole heap of material he has put out over the years.

For those who want to catch Elba over the summer, he is playing these dates:

Eastern Electrics Festival @ Hatfield, UK on August 6th.

Creamfields Festival @ Liverpool, UK on August 27th.

For more updates, just like his FB page.
