Don’t let the name, or fleece onesie, fool you. Eric San, aka Kid Koala, is not fucking around. The 43-year-old Kid Koala is a vinyl turntablist DJ, musician, and graphic novel author from Canada. He’s a member of alternative hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and he’s performed with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lovage, and Gorillaz. Aside from his ambitious collaborative efforts, San has made a career out of his ability to transform the turntable into a melodic instrument. This isn’t your typical rave, deep-house set. Among his many genre-bending skills, this dude can make Sinatra’s “Moon River” sound hip AF.
