Kid Koala SomeOf My Best Friends Are DJs
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Ninja Tune
By any definition, Eric San a.k.a. Kid Koala is an iconoclast, so his newest joint on Ninja Tune is all about celebrating singularity. Eschewing conventional structures, liner notes and time signatures, Some of My Best Friends are DJs is a showcase for his ambition and humor, filled equally with instructional samples, jazz riffs, comedic interludes-including a hilarious comic book insert designed by San himself-and, of course, mind-expanding beats. San doesn't obfuscate like fellow Ninja Amon Tobin or mood-groove like DJ Shadow, but he still sticks out from the turntablist set like a sore thumb. Which is reason alone to grab this shit and spin it.
