Kid Koala shares an 18-minute megamix of music from his Floor Kids Original Video Game Soundtrack. The hip-hop DJ and producer created the mix after he received test pressings of the soundtrack on vinyl, he says,
“This is a live mix that will give you a taste of some of the grooves and battle tracks on the record. I labeled the 12 o’clock point on each record with some stickers and just hit record, needle dropping, quick cueing, and back spinning loops as you would do when deejaying at a break battle. There are also a few spoken word elements from the games story cutscenes scratched in there, which reveal some of the in-game philosophy that will help you become a better player/dancer/human!”
The Floor Kids album will be released on April 27th and Kid Koala’s Vinyl Vaudeville: Floor Kids Edition tour begins April 26th in Canada.
