Kid Koala - Scratchappyland

Kid Koala - Scratchappyland
(10" ltd) Ninja Tune ZEN10KK, 1996-10

Info :
"Make 5 or 6 cucumber sandwiches, remove the krust and arrange them attractively around the album. Place your turntable on front of your guests. If the sandwiches fly off the turntable, it is set at the wrong speed, in which case you and your guests will be eating much faster than usual". Si ce n'est pas de l'obsession ça! ("Dinner with Yoda"). S'ensuit une série de scratches sautillants aux basses rondes et rebondissantes, avant un sample de gamins dont certains se vantent d'être dotés d'une barre en chocolat alors qu'un autre n'a gagné qu'une pierre. "I got a rock" dit-il et là-dessus Kid Koala démarre un impressionnant mix hip hop ultra-scratché qui finit (trop vite) en barrage en couille instantané. ("Tricks and treats"). Voilà pour la première face de ce petit 10" en papier recyclé, soit-disant promotionnel, en fait en vente dans toutes les bonnes librairies spécialisés en galettes noires de bon aloi. La seconde face est un exercice de style à base de samples de films improbables et d'autres sons tout aussi souleveurs de sourcil gauche, de scratches à la limite de l'absurde, de beats hip hop au sons MontyPythonesques. Un 10" pour les fans de turntablism délirant, de scratches pointilleux et experts, qui adorent quand le hip hop envahit Alice au pays des merveilles.
Note happy scratches : 5/5 (Djouls)
