This week’s download comes from DJ, Turntablist and producer extraordinaire Kid Koala. He just released his new album titled “Music To Draw To: Satellite.”  You have seven days to download his song “Adrift.”

Kid Koala‬’s Music To Draw To: Satellite is an uncharted musical journey for the legendary scratch DJ, producer, and composer. ‪Kid Koala‬’s fifth studio album is an expansive work of ambient electronic soundscapes and chilling ballads sung by Icelandic artist Emilíana Torrini. Created during the gelid Montreal winter, its eighteen movements tell a tale of discovery and loss through the lens of lovers separated by an early Mars mission, a one-way journey to settle Earth’s closest neighbour.

An album of many firsts for Eric San, this inaugural volume in the Music To Draw To series features ‪Kid Koala‬ collaborating with a vocalist, writing lyrical poetry, and producing and performing all instruments. Satellite is the renowned audio-collagist’s first non-sample-based record, instead using an array of synthesizers, keys, guitars, strings, turntables, noisemakers and San’s inventive recording techniques to lay out this heartrending musical story. The output is in stark, beautiful comparison an ambient masterpiece: over 72 atmospheric minutes of stardust settling over Kid Koala’s trove of turntables and sentiment. ‬‬
