Editorial Reviews

Eric San a.k.a. Kid Koala is a one-of-a-kind sort of turntablist. There's the fact that he's an illustrator, graphic artist, film maker, puppet master and musician. There's the fact that he always wear shorts. Then there's the fact that he sees his chosen means of expression not as a way of showing that he can do faster crabs than anyone else, but as a way of telling stories.

Format: Audio CD
I first learned of the oddly-named Kid Koala (AKA Erin San) on a trip-hop site; the webmaster had put up two mp3s, with no other information. Needless to say, I was absolutely captivated by his music.

And now the renaissance DJ/turntablist returns in his third album, "Your Mom's Favorite DJ," which hits on all his strong points. Equal parts musician and DJ, he dabbles in driving rock'n'roll, distorted trad jazz, hip-hop, and a colourful splatter of samples. If my mom liked any DJs, she'd like this one.

It's hard to even describe the longish songs on here -- they don't even feel long, because they're crammed with as much sound as Koala can smush in there. Weird groaning noises, perky jazz, piano solos, distorted horns, electronic buildups, funny vocal samples, solid hip-hop beats, repetitive samples, and thunderous hard-rock riffs that explode from the belly of "Mosquito Vs. Water Buffalo." And, of course, turntabling.

In other words, it's totally unpredictable -- Koala's music will completely change from one moment to the next, and he can pull new tricks and sounds out of his pocket. And sometimes they are based on things that aren't musical at all, like a song referencing his book "Nufonia Must Fall."

As much fun as it is, much of this album's pleasure comes from how devastatingly creative it is. Koala can take virtually any sound, no matter how odd or obscure, and paste it into just the right spot. That, and he knows that hip-hop can be colourful and creative, and doesn't have to take itself seriously at all. (Look at that title!)

How does he do that? He weaves together elaborate melodies of hip-hop beats and breaks, hard-rock and buzzing electronic variations on both of them.

His best lp since scratchcratchscratch. Kid Koala is a jazz musician who happens to use the one's and two's. He goes from FLA blues to guitar riffs in beautiful fashion. There are really only two kinds of music good music and bad music and if its good you don't care how it was mad you just listen to it and this is exceptionally good music.

There's just nothing like a Kid Koala record - whiplash scratching, pitch-perfect combinations of music and really funny little stories told through sampled dialogue. Even if the music choices weren't so great or the scratching anything less, the sense of humor that pervades his work would keep me coming back. This particular record, like the other four or five of his I have heard, is no different and worthy of five stars easily. You know, if you like turntable acrobatics and have a sense of humor.
