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?

Wow, The Beat Junkies have been getting down for 20 years and to Celebrate LRG have put together a short documentary, 'For The Record' about them. They are such an amazing dj crew. Respect.
The World Famous Beat Junkies, comprised of members J-Rocc, DJ Babu, D-Styles, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ What?!, Mr. Choc, Icy Ice, Curse, DJ Shortkut, Melo-D, Symphony and DJ Havik have been putting in work on the turntables since they were first established in 1992. Known internationally as the premiere DJ crew, their longevity is a testament to their immense musical talents. In celebration of the legendary Beat Junkies, LRG presents For the Record – a short documentary profiling the collective with contributions from the likes of A Trak, Q Bert and Peanut Butter Wolf – with DJ Jazzy Jeff commenting that “there are no DJ’s out today that haven’t been influenced by the Beat Junkies at all.” In addition, the Beat Junkies are heading out on the road for an international tour with stops across the US, Europe and Asia and this past weekend kicked off their tour at the Echoplex in Los Angeles, CA on June 30. Laced in commemorative letterman jackets from LRG that celebrates 20-years of hard work and hustle, here's to another 20 more in the game.
