Fusing turntable wizardry with classic rock ’n’ roll, Kid Koala and Dynamite D have produced a unique album destined to get the b-boys back in the mosh pit. Think of old-school combos such as Aerosmith and Run-DMC, turn up the volume to 11, kick back and enjoy. Mixed by Beastie Boys producer Mario Caldato Jr, reverse-engineered epic rock tracks get the full studio treatment, producing a sound that is fresh, loud and exhilarating. As Kid Koala says “it just has to sound big and heavy”. This is reproduced live to stunning effect by enlisting six turntables and the original rhythm section of rock powerhouse Wolfmother. Awesome!
