Master turntablist Kid Koala, producer Dynomite D and former Wolfmother rhythm section Chris Ross and Myles Heskett have announced that they will be collaborating together on an upcoming tour. And to celebrate, they’re giving away an entire album featuring the music they’ll be performing as a free download.
Here’s the back story: A couple of years ago, Kid Koala and Dynomite D were asked to record a soundtrack to a documentary. They had completed a psych rock-influenced score for the film before the entire project was shelved. More recently, the pair met Heskett and Ross and played them some of this music. Having recently left Wolfmother, and excited about what they were hearing, the pair suggested taking the lost album on the road.
So, with Koala and Dynomite working across six turntables, and Keskett and Ross handling drums and bass, that’s exactly what they’re doing.
Calling themselves The Slew, the album, entitled ‘100%’, will finally be released via Puget Sounds on 9 Nov. But that’s after the tour starts. So, in order to give you a taste of what to expect, they’re giving it away for free.
