Published Jun 12, 2012Renowned turntablist Kid Koala (aka Eric San) has been talking about his forthcoming "blues turntable" record for a while now, but it will finally see release on September 17.
The new album will hit shelves and online shopping carts via Ninja Tune and the straightforward 12-song tracklist can be seen below. The artwork is pictured above.
Previously, San explained the inspiration behind the project, saying: "Being a DJ and a record collector, I started drawing all of these lines backwards from the music I was into as a teenager and was like, 'Wow, all of this stuff correlates to the blues' and I got really heavy into it. So much so that I decided to do an actual turntable blues record, whatever that means."
Apparently, a select few fans that grab the album early will be rewarded with a limited first-run edition, which includes a cardboard turntable kit.
