Kid Koala seems to have his hands in all things creative. I'm sure you know the music, probably his graphic novel and animation or maybe you were lucky enough to check out a headphone concert. His latest album '12 Bit Blues', will be released September 17th on Ninja Tune. He used the classic SP-1200 to arrange all the tracks then finished them off with cuts. The blues arranged By Kid Koala are as the blues should be, raw with with something to make your head nod. Check the Ninja Tune link below you can preview all the tracks and order the limited edition vinyl & cardboard 'hand powered record player'. Would you expect anything less from Kid Koala?
Thanks to Trevor @ Score. for the info.
Sometimes it seems like the coolest projects are the ones that get scrapped before they ever make their way to the public. Luckily this one came back from the almost dead. The music was intended to be for a soundtrack for a movie that won't be seen. There will be a 'Tour only album' of this music, here are a couple tracks from the album. For the tour schedule check Kid Koala's website, while your there have a look around. There are some interesting things going on. There is also a video for It's All Over.

Here we are, The DayMakers MixVol 5. At this rate we'll have hit Vol. 10 about the time I graduate from college, it could be a while.

Next up is GavinSense, Audio taken from a video of his. Then a little Kid Koala, Robo Shuffel, followed by Rob Swift's Dope on Plastic. What ever happened to ColdKutCombo? Next is a track from the ColdKut Member Mixtape freaturing Sirness & Sol Kontrol. Then moving on to the sci-scratch KingTragic & PrimeMinister handel that. Next a little ThoughtControl, did you check their free ep? I listen to every track that is uploaded to tablist.net, some suite me better than others, Dj Syruz dosen't dissapoint. Next is a track from the new self titled Vince Mack Mahon record. I assume you've checked the Community Scratch Podcasts, if not don't delay. Skizo (Bungalow Zen), provides what you need for Posers & Supposers. Next is a little trip down memory lane with Dj Realm, The Allies (Dj Craze), Shortee and Alien Army. I'm not sure where this next track comes from, Paul Pre featuring Soular, Nowadays. So if you know, tell me.
