Idris Elba is set to team up with former EastEnders star Chucky Venn and US rapper Eve for a DJ set in London!

Fresh from his critically acclaimed performance as Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Idris will be wooing crowds with a special DJ appearance at London's swanky nightclub, Sway.

Going under his DJ name of 7Wallace, Idris will jet back to the UK just for this one-off appearance to celebrate Christmas in style. With the appearance of Chucky, who played Ray Dixon in the BBC One soap, and 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind' rapper Eve, we're sure this will be a party not to miss.

Idris' DJ-ing skills may come as a surprise to some, but the 41-year-old actor, who is star of American crime series The Wire and BBC drama Luther, is no stranger to music.

Idris has been spinning tracks from a young age, and was even chosen to produce the intro for Jay Z's American Gangster album.

Idris last showed off his music skills to a packed crowd at this year's Virgin Media's V Festival in August, and last month the multi-talented star revealed that he wants to release a couple of albums in the near future!

He said: "I feel like music is always going to be a part of me and I think one day I am going to put out an album or two where audiences will be surprised."

Idris will be performing at Sway nightclub in London on Friday 27 December 2013. Tickets are available to buy here.
