Kid Koala - '12 bit Blues' Minimix by DK

A Genius Minimix By Solid Steel's DK of Kid Koala's New EP!

His fourth album, 12 Bit Blues is the turntablist version of going acoustic, recorded almost entirely on the hottest technology 1987 could buy: the E-mu SP-1200 sampler! The results are beautifully broken, the Kid furiously tapping pads and maxing out all luxurious 10 seconds of sample time before adding his trademark scratching — still some of the most virtuosic and expressionistic in the game. It's monstrously funky — fresh for '88 or your fresh 78s — the Kid tearing up vintage blues vocal samples into be-bop-inflected shards, atmospheric wiggles, or head-knocking cut'n'paste grooves.
